My level of disgust with this year’s GOP primary seems to have no bounds. Today Romney is whining about a Santorum ad asking union workers in Michigan to vote against Romney (or for Santorum). His elitist-ness is crying low blow:
“It’s a dirty trick,” he said on Fox News’ Fox & Friends. “It’s outrageous to see Rick Santorum team up with the Obama people and go out after union labor in Detroit and try and get them to vote against me.
Good lord, the man has no hope against Obama. It is well known almost half of the union membership are deep down conservative.
But our tone deaf whiner did not stop there. There was is idiotic NASCAR comment:
The full quote from Romney, when asked if he followed NASCAR, starts with an honest admission that he didn’t. ”Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends that are NASCAR team owners.”
Is that a Dukakis tank moment or what? The head set accents his ears quite nicely. As Marisa Tomei quipped in the movie My Cousin Vinny: “Like you blend?”
Example 3: two Cadillacs for the little wife. Oh the humanity
The guy is an elitist just like Obama, but does not even come close to making the kind same populist connection with the average voter as Obama can. Obama was/is capable if spinning anything and sounding genuine. Romney fails on the most basic levels.
With any luck voters in Michigan, and possibly even Arizona will save us from this tone deaf, wooden candidate.
BTW, if anyone has not yet realized Ron Paul has made a deal with the GOP establishment to be the permanent also-ran candidate to attract Libertarians but now actually win, they do not understand how everything out of DC is heavily staged.
