Chris Wallace had some words for Gov. Romney and his campaign team: “let’s talk.” Wallace called out the Romney campaign for avoiding the media and not scheduling any one on one interviews with the former Governor of Massachusetts.

“He has not appeared on this program or any Sunday talk show since March of 2010,” Wallace said. “We invited Gov. Romney again this week, but his campaign says he’s still not ready to sit down for an interview.”

The belief is that Romney is playing it safe by avoiding interviews with the media, where many candidates trip up. I am a big Romney fan but even I can admit that I agree with Chris Wallace on this one. Romney should be out on the news waves promoting his agenda utilizing the free airtime. Cain has a very low budget campaign so he utilizes Fox News any time he can. These days, it seems like Cain has been on Fox News more than some paid contributors and even some show hosts have. These interviews are how voters get to know a candidate and determine if they think that candidate is Perry’s favorite word, authentic. Romney is not getting over the 30% hump because of this hurdle and his fear of making a mistake is costing him many opportunities to take a commanding lead. No one wants a timid leader; where there is risk, there is opportunity. Works for Capitalism, works for politics.
