RomneyBot, Version 5.0x10^9

Seems that Willard is now experimenting with being a populist:
One of the most important things to focus on in the post-Obama era, he said, was to lift people out of poverty. "Under President Obama, the rich have gotten richer and more people are in poverty than ever before," Romney said. He also touted his work as a pastor in the Mormon Church helping the sick and elderly.
The "rich getting richer" is pretty much the core of the GOP. You don't have to look hard to find GOP powerbrokers whose cause is cutting taxes for the rich and increasing them for everyone else.

That didn't sell too well on the national stage, so the man who ran in `08 as a slightly moderate conservative and in `12 as a severe conservative is now trying to find some other robe that will look good on him.

At this point, it's clear that Rmoney's core political belief is "I should be president." Which, at least, is honest. He'll say anything, do anything and become anything in order to become the president. But what he'd do as president, well, good luck guessing that. For when you try to find his bedrock political philosophy, there's no there, there.

If you want to know what President Romney would do, look no further than Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. Romney has no agenda other than winning the election, and no compass or core set of ideological values. He has proven that over the last decade, shifting positions repeatedly to try to capture the national Republican zeitgeist.

He would make the foul and odious GW Bush look studiously thoughtful and fiercely independent by comparison...

You remember what is said about people who seek offices which bear a lot of prestige and power? That those people should on no account be given those jobs?

Please Mr. Romney, /I /d/o/n/'/t/ /w/a/n/n/a/ /g/o/ take your money and ambition and GO HOME!

The Republican tactic of blaming the Democrats for the rich getting richer is asking to the little boy who whacks his littler sister with a baseball bat and then runs to his mother screaming, "Mommy, Mommy, she hit me!"

Why do I think that Willard was just that kind of kid?

Sorry, that sentence should have read.

Not only is it late at night, but the mere mention of Romoney sends me into a white hot rages that causes my fingers to hit the wrong key and ... oh never mind.
