Skip to comments.Carl Cameron Reporting Romney "Giddy" Behind The Scenes
Posted on 11/03/2012 3:23:16 PM PDT by ConservativeMan55
Carl Cameron just reported that Mitt Romney is absolutely giddy behind the scenes.
He says on the campaign airplane when someone goes to use the bathroom.. Romney runs over and bangs on the door acting as if he has to go. LOL!
You can always tell who the winner is the weekend before the election.
They have that extra smile, that spring in their step..
Sounds like Mitt is having fun. Why does Carl feel the need to report this?
Because Carl is in the tank for Obama and has nothing else better to do. Romney is giddy because he knows he is just three days away from becoming President of the United States..he knows it and anyone with an IQ above 10 knows it too
I think he’s just providing a little behind the scenes perspective. To show things are pretty happy in the Romney camp.
Romney needs to keep these stories low key! Uncommitted voters resent them because it makes them feel like they are being taken for granted.
Barry’s biggest mistake in this election cycle has been his tendency to assume he had an automatic lock on certain voter groups. It’s going to cost him.
Romney and the rest of us need to stay focused until the polls close. There will be time enough for celebrating then.
I think you’re right. Barry seems angry and vindictive.
Mormon humor, apparently. I guess if you can’t drink, you have to make your own fun somehow! LOL

If you listen between the lines of Carl’s reporting, there is always more than a dig or two against Romney.
Romney is absolutely giddy behind the scenes. Makes sense. Knowing you’re about to be elected President has got to be one heck of a drug.
I can’t stand Carl. He seems like such a weasel.
I pray that you are correct. I feel confident, but also on edge. It’s going to be a long three days.
In some strange way , that makes sense.
This cheers me a lot....Mitt must have good news from his internals.
I find that I'm really looking forward to having a President with strong moral values.
Mormons....well, Howard Hughes always trusted them :-)
Romney said he’ll issue an executive order allowing states to opt out of Obamacare as well.
I thought that was worth noting. He said he would issue a flood of executive orders cancelling out Obamas. LOVE it lol.
“Sounds like Mitt is having fun. Why does Carl feel the need to report this?”
Sounds like a real positive! I remember 2008 where there was the smell of death around the McCain campaign the last month. Everyone, I mean everyone, knew the race was over. In 1996 when Bob Dole ran against Bill Clinton I remember watching an interview that Dole gave on his airplane late in the campaign. It was all about the “no matter what happens” garbage that every losing candidate says when he knows he is going to lose. I remember going to a Dole rally and thinking that he was about as exciting as watching mud dry! Compared that to the excitement in the Bush campaign.
The point is that I think that Romney is confident he is going to win. This doesn’t that he will, but it also means that he hasn’t had the “bad news” briefing that every losing candidate gets from his campaign manager the weekend before the election. If anything, this exudes confidence. I am glad this was posted!
There’ve been a slight few hints that Mitt is a fun loving guy. His wife says he’s funny.
I heard this anecdote...that Paul Ryan played a practical joke on Mitt knowing he would take it good naturedly. When Mitt came to Wisconsin he was told where in this big facility he was supposed to go where there was supposed to be a room full of supporters, only, when Mitt walked in there, it was EMPTY. The assembled crowd was in a different area.
I doubt if he’s doing everything just because he thinks he’s winning.
More likely just being himself.
The problem isn’t Mitt, it’s Carl Cameron and his ilk.
Mountain, meet molehill.
The travelling campaign reporters have a pretty good idea of the real state of the race. You cannot be around each other for days on end and not share some off the record information.
Look at it this way, if Obama was winning and the travelling press knew it, we’d be hearing those kind of stories leaking all over.
Could anyone tell me why they think that Cameron is in the tank for Obama? I have always thought him to be fairly even in his reporting? No flame outs, just an explanation please.
Maybe just a natural distrust of reporters! ha
I think Carl plays it pretty straight for the most part, there are certainly a lot more partisan hacks around than Carl.
Sounds like Romney is holding up better than alot of us on this site and elsewhere.
Well, he was known for his practical jokes wasn’t he? Shows he’s down to earth, and has a sense of humor.
Can’t stand Carl
Yeah I think so too!
And I think this means he’s seen some internal polling!
Every time I see your FR user name I see “transgender”. I don’t know why lol
Cameron was the conduit for the “Bush DUI” story. He told it with glee and gusto.
for years I’ve wanted to slap the Howdy Doody out that boy
Cameron has been awful toward Romney.
And, Ed Henry, the CNN refuge covering Obama on FNC: send him back to CNN along with his miserable smirk. Worthless.
That’s why Rick Perry needs to be chief of staff. He knows who America’s enemies are and will delight in jettisoning them.
Actually the rumor has it that Romney ran over to the door of the latrine and said;
“ARE YOU VOTING FOR OBAMA”?
This is also a good indication (on Drudge):
“30,000 turn out in Ohio for Romney...
Obama plays for just 2,800...
CLEVELAND 2008: 80,000; CLEVELAND 2012: 4,000...
Just 200 show up for event with Stevie Wonder!”
BTW, can’t listen to Carl’s reporting on anything political anymore.
Romneys “spring in his step” is contagious! Hearing how “giddy” he is makes me ecstatic! I love it!
Romney is acting like a winner. Have you ever noticed how baseball players are in the dugout when things are going well? Smiles, practical jokes, nonchalance, and heads held high. When they are doing poorly they have towels over their heads, heads in the hands, frowns on their faces and kicking equipment around. I don’t think it would be much fun in Obama’s dugout/clubhouse right now.
It’s been a long, hard campaign. He deserves to blow off some steam and relax.
Our long national nightmare is about to end. We will wake up on November 7 with a nice McGovernesques landslide to cheer us into the new year.
>> Could anyone tell me why they think that Cameron is in the tank for Obama? <<
Probably just your typical bile and bilge from the determined little band of FReepers who bash Fox News at every chance they get.
Funny, this morning Campaign Carl reported to the Friends that he was allowed to peek at the Ohio internals and that they were very close. I have been a nervous wreck all day.
He also was a huge detriment to Sarah Palin with his “fair” reporting. I think he is a liberal hack. Just my opinion, of course.
I’m going to say this only a few times.
This will be close. Dont expect a gingrich-predicted 6 point win, or an EV landslide. It’s NOT going to happen. The demos dont support it, and will probably never again in the US.
We WILL win however, if each and every one of us votes ourselves and helps out in any way we can - talking to our friends and acquaintances, convincing them cordially why we are right, and pledging our help on phone lines, etc.
Dont rest on your laurels by anecdotal evidence. Signs and demeanor mean nothing. Both sides are sending out smoke signals. 4 years ago a bunch of freepers were giddy about an epic possible McCain victory.
I think the polls are wrong. But they wont be wrong by more than a few points, and you are fooling yourself to think so. So get off your butt and help out and make this happen. Romney needs to be President and we need to save our nation!
IIRC,carls wife worked on the obama campaign.Guilty by assoc.;
I hope this is true. I know a lot of us here have had our doubts about Romney, and I’m glad it appears we are coalescing around the bigger idea that his victory will also end what is a catastrophic trajectory for the nation.
So think about this behavior. This is a man who has accomplished more than virtually anyone can in a lifetime. Go ahead and point to the “born on third base and thinking you got a triple” mentality, but I believe Romney is extraordinarily driven. A loss would devastate him. If he is in good spirits, this tells me he likes what his pollsters are telling him.
I hope and pray we will once again elect a happy warrior.
