You know, it just hit me exactly what Romney is: he's a Pointy-Haired Boss™. Think about it: he has no discernable talents of his own, extraordinarily poor people skills, he tries to paint himself as all things to all people, he cares little about the people under him, he uses buzzwords as magic invocations, and, as the London debacle shows, he's simply unable to let a single project go by without trying to change some small detail to get himself some measure of credit. Seriously, if this guy hadn't been born into money, he'd be a middle manager somewhere. Instead, he's running for President.

I'm reminded of the primaries, when Mitt had that photo-op picnic at a park in Pittsburgh. One of Pittsburgh's finest bakeries made a plate of cookies especially for the occasion. Oblivious to this fact, Mitt looked at the cookies like someone had just placed a horsesh*t fondue in front of him, and with this really disgusted look on his face, he went on to proclaim that "the cookies don't look very good, they look like the cheap kind, you know the kind you get from 7-11."

This trip to London comes as absolutely NO surprise to me, because that picnic told me everything I needed to know about Mitt: he's' incapable of grinning and bearing it... if he thinks something is beneath, he just HAS to sh*t at all over it and criticize.

See "nice ponchos, you really sprang for the big bucks".

Americans, by an eight-point margin, pick Bush over Kerry as "friendly and likeable" and as "caring and compassionate," and by a seven-point margin as someone who "shares my values and beliefs," an ABCNEWS/Washington Post poll finds.

That was confirmed again in a new USA Today-Gallup survey, where respondents gave Romney higher marks on every issue that voters say they care most about this year: the economy, jobs, taxes, the deficit. But President Obama crushed Romney - 60 percent to 30 percent - on the question of which of the two was more likeable.

But crusty old Bob Dole was surely not considered more likeable than Bill Clinton in 1996. The 1992 Clinton-George H.W. Bush matchup was probably close. But just think back over the elections. The "wooden" Michael Dukakis in 1988 wasn't exactly radiating intense bonhomie. Ronald Reagan was extremely likeable on a personal level to most people. Jimmy Carter had that big smile in 1976. Et cetera.

Anybody else here think the GOP elites are regretting their choice to give Mitt Romney a free ride through the primary elections yet?


There was a small part of me that thought that if Rick Santorum had, in fact, won the primaries, that it would be the opportunity for the Republicans and the country to reject the Tea Party once and for all. To hell with losing Florida and Pennsylvania; that man would have lost Louisiana and Georgia. Then the Republicans would have had the perfect excuse to dump the extremists, drift to the middle like some of the moderates are begging, and work towards becoming contributing members of government again.

Instead, by forcing another moderate into the general election, we just replay the 2008 elections, which, should Romney lose, will result in much breast-beating and wailing of "We just aren't CONSERVATIVE enough!" followed by yet another leap to the right. The only reason the crazies have a voice in the party is because the Republicans keep giving it to them; no one would give a crap what Tina Teaparty of Texas cares about progressive taxation if the Republicans hadn't pushed her onto a bus and sent her to rallies around the country to prop themselves up for the midterms.

We've seen how badly Mitt Romney botched his first-ever foreign policy quiz. Can you imagine how Santorum would be acting if he went over there? Chances are he'd just burst into flames as soon as he set foot off the plane at Heathrow. There wouldn't be a European he wouldn't alienate. And there isn't enough popcorn in the WORLD to last through the epic thunderfark that would be his trip to Israel.

This could lead to a virtual civil war at the convention, if they decide to replace Romney. The extremists will demand someone ideologically pure, like DeMint or even Santorum, and the moderates/pragmatists will want to draft a popular figure who actually seems presidential, without demanding a litmus test. This is going to be fun!

So Mitt Romney wants to be President and he has three really good reasons why he should.

First, his extensive executive experience at Bain.

Oh, right, he can't talk about that because it's hard to make vulture capitalism sound good when you start really explaining it.

Yeah, but his second reason, the "I was Gov in Mass" thing is solid, right? What's that? Romneycare?

Alright, give you that but come on how can you not be impressed by his time spent on the SLC Olympics?

*views Mitt's unfortunate remarks*

Man, for someone the Brit press labelled a "wannabe President" he sure doesn't seem to want it very badly.

"I would go there and I would say, 'They have done a remarkably good job. I know how they have been hurt with the economy. But they have done this. I have done it myself. It's so hard to do, and they have done a remarkably good job,'" (Harry) Reid told the Huffington Post.

I love how things are such a farce that people can say exactly what should have been said, without having been there, or having any experience relating to that particular situation. It just highlights what a joke so many of these political statements are. No matter what Reid saw, or what he thought, he would have said the same thing because it was determined and rehearsed before he even got on the plane.

FTFRove: You have to shake your head. Gov. Romney went to the London Olympics at invitation of the International Olympic Committee. It was a great opportunity for him to talk about his experiences, look, he stepped away from the leadership of Bain Capital for three years in order to step in and save the floundering Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in 2002.

That's the part they wanted to emphasize with this visit, but...

FTFRove (cont.): I bet there is lots of stories he could be talking about what a wonderful experience that was and how uplifting and inspiring it was. Instead he got stuck making a, somehow or another that the comments the Brits took as insult, and walked it back pretty quickly and walked it back adroitly but nonetheless the damage was done.

Frankly, Rovie, I'd take Romney's visit as an insult altogether. The mere noxious presence of this arrogant, entitled, oily twat is offensive enough in and of itself.

What I still can't understand is how he can be so mind-bendingly bad at campaigning. He's been running for some sort of major office or another since 1994! I really don't recall him saying so many stupid things in his runs for Senator and Governor.

There's a difference between dumb and entitled jackass who thinks he already knows everything there is to know. Willful ignorance as it were. Mitt is the latter.

If he didn't have his family money he'd be, oh, probably the upper middle management type making life hell for the people he knows he's better than beneath him. But since he wouldn't have daddy's money, he would never rise much farther than that position he got through obligatory promotions for time served.

A Hail Mary is a possibility at the convention but the more I think about it the less likely I think it is.

This has been crossing my mind a lot lately. But I'm pretty uneducated in politics and how things like this work. Is it even possible that Romney WON'T be the candidate?

Mitt's the candidate.

It might have worked before you had millions of people able to vet a candidate themselves using the internet, but anyone they could possibly put up will be scrutinized by the political obsessives within days of being announced.

Serious Black: Anybody else here think the GOP elites are regretting their choice to give Mitt Romney a free ride through the primary elections yet?


Oh, there's plenty of election rigging yet to be done and billions left to be spent on manipulating very stupid people.

They're counting on everybody waking up November 7th saying "What the fark just happened?"

During the summers when I was in college, I worked as a camp counselor and became good friends with another counselor who was from England. This was nearly twenty years ago. He taught me a phrase I had never heard and, until now, had never found anything vile enough to invoke its use. Mitt Romney is a chiseling twatter.

DeltaPunch: I'm reminded of the primaries, when Mitt had that photo-op picnic at a park in Pittsburgh. One of Pittsburgh's finest bakeries made a plate of cookies especially for the occasion. Oblivious to this fact, Mitt looked at the cookies like someone had just placed a horsesh*t fondue in front of him, and with this really disgusted look on his face, he went on to proclaim that "the cookies don't look very good, they look like the cheap kind, you know the kind you get from 7-11."

This trip to London comes as absolutely NO surprise to me, because that picnic told me everything I needed to know about Mitt: he's' incapable of grinning and bearing it... if he thinks something is beneath, he just HAS to sh*t at all over it and criticize.

See "nice ponchos, you really sprang for the big bucks".


You can't blame Mitt Romney for being an out-of-touch asshole because it's his nature. It's like asking a bird not to fly.
