Nobody Does It Better: Mitt Romney in Shameless Liar Mode

Mitt Romney’s standard operating procedure on display. Hilarious. I once knew an alcoholic who could lie like this. Nobody else.



By the way, as the election approaches, Mitt Romney’s unfavorable rating has now climbed over 47%. A fitting number, I’d say.

  1. Political consultants say, “When you are explaining, you are losing. We should add “whining” to the list. The Obama team has brass knuckles and they aren’t afraid to punch. Good for them. Sometimes Democrats forget that elections are a blood sport.

      When Ann Romney says she is worried about her husband’s “mental well-being” (should he attain the presidency), it suggests to me that he sends her “woe is me” signals on a regular basis. It definitely implies (at minimum) that she is hearing whining from him, as if he is the Christ going to the cross instead of the country club. He wants us to know that we’re so fortunate that he, the rich patrician, is letting the rest of us burden him with our troubles. And it’s hard on him. Really hard. Running for president is not what he wants to be doing, but he’s being the good father and stepping up to the plate because he alone has what it takes to fix the country.

      This, of course, is nonsense.

      Growing up, I bet Mitt’s kids, when they were naughty, got this guilt trip from their mother periodically. “Stop putting unnecessary burdens on your father, making him unhappy.”

      Underlying his run for the presidency is thus the following whine: It’s just so hard for us competent and rich people to carry those of you who are losers, but we’re doing it because, well, we’re good and responsible people.

      The answer the electorate returns to this (I hope) is, “No thanks. We’ll muddle along without you.”


      • We’ll see. It does make me wonder, if Mittens wins, who will he complain to when the Iranians or the Russians or the Chinese or the North Koreans or Al Qaeda pick on him? Really, if you can’t take a few hits from an effete socialists who is clearly the worst president America as ever had, then I don’t think you are ready to play in the same league as the big boys.

        Very good points.

    Santi, I thought you stopped your worship of Obama about a year ago. You quoted a guy who wrote a column for the Wall Street Journal, and said that you agreed with him. He was saying that after about three years in his term, Obama does not intend to lead the country in the way the Founders intended. And you said that you didn’t like to admit it, but he was right.

    I’m not a big fan of Mitt Romney, in fact I didn’t want him to be the nominee for the Republicans; but if you’re going to complain about lying and hypocrisy, which are all too common in politics, then Obama is a good example. 🙂 He is a narcissistic incompetent obsessed with himself, with his ideology and never admits he could be wrong on anything. You know, there’s a category of leaders that have this kind of personality. Does the term “dictators” ring a bell?

    • Santi Tafarella says:

      I don’t remotely recognize Obama in your description. And I’ve been critical of Obama over the years. I think he brought Larry Summers in too close early on, and this caused him to not go after the banksters criminally. But Obama is vastly better than the alternative. Vastly.
