Mitt Romney will sit with ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, and CNN for interviews that will run on evening news broadcasts.
Romney's campaign was already in hyper defense mode over his Bain tenure this morning, deploying spokespeople across cable-land.
But this takes it to another level, and it seems Romney has learned from personal experience -- namely, from 1994.
Yet in an interview with the Boston Globe a few weeks after his loss in November 1994, Romney admitted that he was haunted by his failure to respond to the attacks on his record at Bain. He often woke up at night thinking about his missed opportunities in the campaign, he said.
And he said his biggest mistake was failing to quickly respond to Kennedy's attacks over Ampad.
"It left in the minds of voters I was a bad guy, a corporate downsizer and raider, and I should have responded more vehemently," Romney told the Globe. "I am a big boy and I know how politics is played. But I thought it would play more to the facts."
Also, donors and supporters have been getting progressively more nervous about his failure to respond to the Bain attacks.
