Mitt Romney: There’s no there there
July 23, 2012 by William K. Wolfrum
There is no there there.
This allegation has long been lobbed at Mitt Romney. In the GOP primaries of 2008, it wasn’t much of a secret that Romney was generally despised by the other GOP candidates. And Presidential looks be damned, the public didn’t show Romney much love, either.
But Romney followed the game plan of Bob Dole, John McCain and others in the Republican party – he waited until it was his turn. The year is 2012, this is Mitt Romney’s turn.
While Romney may have flummoxed the hard-right portion of the GOP, he has come out of the gate showing the potential to be the worst candidate for any office ever in the history of everywhere.
Truly, it is hard to fathom just how bad Romney is with being a candidate. Let’s start with the biggest issues. Bain Capital? Remember, he left Bain (supposedly) years ago. He’s been running for President forever. He still doesn’t have a story for Bain? That’s just shocking. His whole campaign is going to pieces over things that happened in the 1990s.
Releasing tax forms? Ok, just what in the hell does he have in there, anyway? Is there evidence of murder? Probably not, but there must be something devastating in there. Something Romney has known about for the last eight years when he’s been running for President non-stop. Romney has taken something that should be slightly embarrassing and turned it into something that could destroy him.
By the way, have you ever noticed that Romney is always given a net worth of $250 million? I’m thinking someone should double check that.
This leads to his inability to deal with his wealth. You can be obscenely rich and at least pretend to understand the commoners. But Romney truly doesn’t get it. What the media calls gaffes is just how Romney talks. He may accuse the poor of envying his riches, but he literally has no interest whatsoever in the poor.
It just goes on and on. He avoids the press outside of Fox News. He not only has not given any detailed plan of how he will govern, he has bragged about not giving out his plans. He spoke to the NAACP in baby talk then slammed them later that night. His ability to stand on two sides of every issue is not just annoying, it’s pathological.
To say Mitt Romney is an empty suit is an affront to the depth of suits.
I honestly don’t think a lot of Republicans want Romney to win. Better to focus on congressional races and spend the next four years obstructing Obama. Because Romney will say whatever he likes, but no one has a clue on how he’ll actually govern.
Because when it comes to Mitt Romney, there’s no there there. Hell, it’s even worse than that.
