Romney's Under-the-Radar Campaign

Howard Kurtz says Mitt Romney "is working hard at being boring -- and it's paying off."

"The man almost universally described as a weak front-runner is avoiding the press, raising money, and staying out of the spotlight -- all of which provides no compelling storyline other than the recycled ones about Romney's varied vulnerabilities and past flip-flops. And that suits his strategists just fine. They want to keep him out of the rough and tumble of the daily news cycle and focused on just one issue: fixing the economy. They firmly believe that nothing else will matter in 2012 -- not Romney's personality, not his Massachusetts health-care plan, not whether he is ill at ease with working-class voters."
