Mitt Romney is at it again, slamming Barack Obama for the economic meltdown caused by his predecessor, and doing so with marvelous hair.
I loathe Sarah Palin, I detest George W. Bush, I never was much for John McCain. But Mitt Romney might actually be America’s worst politician, in that he ran for governor of Massachusetts as an unambiguous moderate, served his termâ€”then ran for president and turned into an arch-, arch-, arch-conservative. In other words, say what you want about the so-called leading Republican candidates of yesterday and tomorrow, but most of them areâ€”to cite Dennis Greenâ€”who we think they are. Palin is crazy, Bush was lazy, McCain was old. But what in the world is Romney?
Answer: The worst type of politicianâ€”a professional candidate. For three years, all he has to down is sit back and fire bullets. He can slam Obama for absolutely, positively everything, and worry not about a reply. He will repeatedly lay out his plan for economic recovery which (gasp!) calls for more tax cuts! There’s no danger in speaking out; no risk. As a non-office holder, Romney doesn’t require any federal assistance or aid. He can tout his mediocre record’s high points, slam the president’s low points, slather up that hair and be merry.
