      Team Romney Readies For “Saturday Obama Surprise”

      After a disastrous 48-hour news cycle in London, the Romney campaign “wants the world to know” that they are prepared for a “Saturday Obama Surprise,” of unknown specifications.

      “We want to communicate to the world that we are ready for whatever they throw at us,” a Romney adviser told BuzzFeed unsolicited. “After poor economic numbers today, we are preparing for them to throw out absurdities, distractions, and anything else they can to divert from the economy.”

      When asked why Romney’s camp expected a sneak attack from the Obama campaign, the advisor said their guard was up because of “how they’ve conducted themselves in the past.”

      So far, the campaign’s preparations have entailed assembling an army of surrogates to fill the message void while Romney is out of the country, unable to attack Obama himself because “politics end at the water’s edge.”

      The surrogates — including several of the names mentioned to be on Romney’s VP shortlist — “are ready to contribute to driving the economic message – with no apologies,” the adviser said. “We understand the other side doesn’t want to talk about the economy, but we’re not going to let them get us off message.”

      The adviser said that the “surprise” could be anything — but floated another Olympics-related attack on Romney as a possibility with what the Obama team might bring up.

      The Obama campaign, meanwhile, says they’ve got no surprises coming, accusing the Romney campaign of paranoia.

      Don’t be a spoiler – the 4 1/2 hours of coverage don’t start out here until 7:30 Pacifico

    I probably won’t watch. My oldest son & his wife might be coming over (it’s still iffy) so we’ll probably play Catan & eat the lousy coffee cake I baked from scratch.

    What a friggin’ letdown. Got the recipe from Ina Garten’s Food Network site, followed it to the letter, and ended up with a big bland nothing. Total waste of my time, would’ve been better off just going with a mix.

    I’m watching & so far all I can say is:

    Wow, that sucked.

    The the National Health Care system is being celebrated on the Olympics? Children in hospital beds is so festive with nurses dancing around. This is strange. Bring on the soccer hooligans.

    That’s it. I’m not watching the opening ceremony. I’ll continue to watch “Finding Forrester.”

      Love the bluesy-country vibe…thanks. We live in a radio dead zone and don’t really listen to country in the car. Might have to start checking out those stations more.

        Driving across the country I discovered that you are never out of range of at least two radio stations. Unfortunately one is in Spanish and the other is gospel.

    The Melky Cabrera fan club is out in force tonight at AT&T Park. Some of the Melk Maids are holding up signs that say “Our melkshake brings all the boys to the yard.”

    0-0 after one

    I have clicked over to NBC twice – didn’t see anything interesting either time.

    Still waiting for the Opening Ceremony. Had to sit through an interview by Ryan Seacrest before yet another commercial.

Yes, more than 7,000 tons of radioactive debris pushed just to the side to build the Olympic stadium and anti-aircraft missIes anchored on the rooftops of private London residences. War games, military and private security forces patting down the throngs at a cost of £1 billion ($1.54 billion) just for “security” alone, this is the straw which has finally broken the camel’s back for my lifetime of Olympics watching.”
