In celebration of news that Romney won't call Obama a nice guy anymore, I give you A. Bocelli singing "Hallelujah"==>

Twitchy founder/CEO Michelle Malkin’s frequent reminders that President Obama isn’t such a nice guy finally paid off.

BuzzFeed reports:

In speeches from Des Moines to Dallas, Romney has always been careful to hedge his tough digs at Obama with a civil nod toward the president’s moral character: “He’s a nice guy,” the Republican has often said. “He just has no idea how the private economy works.” But Tuesday’s speech included no such hedge — and one campaign adviser said there’s a reason for that.

A reason? Like maybe Obama’s a typical Chicago-style politician who delights in falsely accusing Romney of cheating on his taxes and committing a felony?

“[Romney] has said Obama’s a nice fellow, he’s just in over his head,” the adviser said. “But I think the governor himself believes this latest round of attacks that have impugned his integrity and accused him of being a felon go so far beyond that pale that he’s really disappointed. He believes it’s time to vet the president. He really hasn’t been vetted; McCain didn’t do it.”

Campaign advisers told BuzzFeed Romney is now prepared to go on the offensive following the onslaught of sleazy Bain attacks.

Romney surrogates will bring up Obama's cocaine use, Fast and Furious, and ties to Rod Blagojevich, one aide says.

Attack mode: engaged. Targets: acquired. Liberal knickers: bunched.

And keep in mind, we're now in week 2 of the Romney campaign saying "now we're REALLY going to take off the gloves!!"

Romney campaign is becoming seriously unglued. God help us if they should somehow win. Not exactly cool under pressure.

I wonder how Team Romney plans to "take the gloves off" on a President who's been smeared, slurred and disrespected more than any other

Obama’s lackeys can mock and whine and play the victim card all they want — Romney knocked it out of the park with his rousing pro-freedom speech yesterday. More speeches like that combined with a Mitts-off campaign strategy might just put Mitt in the White House.
