GOP Lawmakers Nervous About Romney Campaign

Republican lawmakers "are grumbling about the direction of Mitt Romney's campaign and say he needs to change course," The Hill reports.

The GOP members say Romney must do a better job of communicating to voters what to expect of him, either by making a bold pledge or fleshing policy proposals with more details.

Said one Republican senator: "Papa Bush was down after the Democratic convention in 1988, people worried he couldn't come back and then he made his 'read my lips, no new taxes' pledge."

Said another: "My advice is don't try to turn him into something he's not. You're never going to turn him into a teddy bear."
