• Mitt Romney the eunuch

    by Kelvin Wade

    I’ve got this problem with my right foot. I want to put it up Mitt Romney’s ass. Now, I’m not a violent man, but I’m just thinking a swift kick to his derriere might stiffen his spine.

    Last September during a Republican debate, Army Capt. Stephen Hill, who is gay, appeared via video from active duty in Iraq. Several audience members booed him and candidate Romney said nothing. Asked about it later, he said, “I have not made it my practice to scold the audience.” Boo!

    Earlier this year when right wing media whore Rush Limbaugh called college coed Sandra Fluke a “slut” and suggested her parents would be ashamed of her for using birth control, Mitt Romney said, “I’ll just say this, which is, it’s not the language I would have used.” Weak.

    In April, when gay Romney spokesman Richard Grenell quit the campaign amid an outcry from the right wing of the party, Romney said Grenell was a “capable individual” and that many senior staffers had urged him to stay. Did you, Mitt? You’re the boss. Couldn’t you have fired back at the critics?

    Following that flap, American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fishcher, who’d led the charge against Grenell, said, “How is Romney going to stand up to North Korea if he can be pushed around by a yokel like me?” His own base knows he can be had.

    When the NY Times ran the story that a billionaire and those associated with the Romney campaign planned to launch attacks on President Obama featuring Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Romney temporarily borrowed someone’s nuts and said, “I repudiate that effort… I think it’s the wrong course for a PAC or a campaign.”

    Giving the balls back, in the same statement, Romney stood by remarks he’d made earlier to Sean Hannity. In the interview with Hannity, Romney brought up Rev. Wright and claimed President Obama wanted to make the U.S. a “less Christian nation.” Romney defended those remarks by actually saying, “I’m not familiar, precisely, with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said, whatever it was.” WTF?

    When Romney supporter Ted Nugent denounced the Obama Administration as a “vile, evil America-hating administration” which is “wiping its ass with the Constitution” Mitt Romney’s spokesman was eager to weigh in and condemn it. Yes, the Romney statement read: “Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.”

    Really? That’s it? You’re asked specifically about Ted Nugent and you vomit up this warmed over, watered down limp statement chastising BOTH sides? Really?

    And when Romney fundraiser Donald Trump went on another erratic Obama Birther rant, Romney weighed in as pathetic as possible with, “You know, I don’t agree with all the people who support me, and my guess is they don’t all agree with everything I believe in.”

    Then, in a speech on the same day Romney was to have a fundraiser with Donald Chump, Romney said he recently heard from a man who told him, “I’d like to have a provision in the Constitution that in addition to the age of the president and the citizenship of the president and the birthplace of the president being set by the Constitution, I’d like it also to say that the president has to spend at least three years working in business before he could become president of the United States.”

    If this man actually exists and isn’t a creation of Romney’s campaign staff, why couldn’t Romney just say the man thinks presidents should be required to have business experience? Why mention that stuff about citizenship and birthplace on the same day you’re gong to be sharing a stage with Birther King Donald Trump? That’s not an accident.

    And Romney’s flirtation with the Birthers is even more shameful because his own father, George Romney, who was born in Mexico, went through his own birth certificate controversy when he ran for President in the ‘60s.

    Time and time again, when Mitt Romney has had opportunities to stand up and be strong, he’s folded like a piece of paper. How can I be expected to support someone who will gladly bend over for Donald Trump and the nut wing of his party but not stand up to anyone?

    Perhaps a swift kick to his backside wouldn’t stiffen his spine. Can’t stiffen what isn’t there.



    • You are not expected to vote for him. No one should. He is exactly like the Etch a Sketch. He changes it up daily and even sometimes more by the minute. What a piece of work.



    • He even SOUNDS wimpy.

      If he’s too wimpy to date, he’s too wimpy to vote for.

      I expect a certain level of artifice in politicians, especially presidential candidates. I mean, Congressman can be strident and more themselves because they’re appealing to 50.1% of a given district. Senators have to be more moderate given the larger electorate. And Presidents, having to appeal to such a broad section of the public tend to be watered down even further. I get that. But with Romney it reaches a putrid level. He will do or say whatever it takes. You may not like a Chris Christie but at least you know he’s not faking it. He’s not putting his finer in the air to test the winds. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman was absolutely right when he called Romney a “well oiled weathervane.” I just don’t like this guy.
