Rather than blame the candidate’s weaknesses or his religion a more serious analysis aims for the campaign strategists and the political managers:

“It’s clear they have some amazing blind spots,” the adviser said. “They don’t understand the flaws of their candidate and how damaging this class stuff is. They’re just not self-aware at all.” The adviser pointed to the way Romney’s taxes were released — hasty, sloppy and reactive, on an issue that should have been easy to foresee.

Romney the data-driven management consultant has surrounded himself with people who share his businesslike world view — without a grander understanding of political leadership. As a result, they are oblivious to his liabilities. “They always seem stunned when something comes out about him,” the adviser said. “It’s always the same things they get surprised by.”
