Good Day World!
Someone ought to tell Mitt Romney that the third time is not always the charm.
After suffering a crushing defeat in his last effort, you’d think he would have got the idea; America doesn’t want him for president. But Romney apparently didn’t get the message, and is preparing for a third campaign.
Why? His supporters paint a picture of him being deeply concerned about the direction our country is heading in and he wants to save us (minus the 47% that doesn’t matter) from destruction.
Really? I see a man who is power-mad and is willing to spend every dime of his vast fortune (including the hidden accounts overseas) to rule the country. What does he have to offer?
What does he plan to do if elected? I doubt if he even knows.
Quick; when was the last time you heard Romney’s vision/message for America? If you said his last effort at campaigning you’re wrong.
He never had a message.
The reason Romney is in the position he is -- nationally known, a massive fundraising network -- is because of his 2008 and 2012 campaigns.
If Romney thinks either his Republican opponents or, potentially Hillary Clinton in a general election, are going to just let the whole "47 percent" thing drop, he’s in for a surprise.
Or, that the car elevator, "severely conservative" and the picture of him with money coming out of his suit jacket are going to disappear?
Um, they won't.
Most people see him as an out-of-touch plutocrat, especially after the last election. Obama’s team effectively painted that picture, and no matter what Romney says or does as a candidate it’s there for all to see.
“The assumption that he can pluck the good things from his past candidacies while wiping away -- "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"-style -- all the bad stuff from voters' minds is a deeply flawed reading of how politics works.” (source)
In spite of that, Romney will probably run one more time. He can’t help himself. He sees himself as a savior...for the wealthy, and the country.
Time for me to walk on down the road…
