The Spot-On Quote Of The Day…

17 March 2012 @ 15:19

…is awarded to Smitty for getting to the nub of the main problem many of us have with Willard Mitt Romney:

…That Mitt has taken pretty much every side on every issue, and continues to spout Newspeak slogans in place of real communication is worrisome. Seriously. You may not like Newt or Rick or Ron, but when they’re talking, you know they are in the room. Mitt has sounded phoned in Every. Single. Time. Even Mitt’s wife sounds more authentic than he does. While I do not advocate alcohol consumption, I confess an academic interest in hearing Mitt after a couple of shots of tequila, purely to satisfy the question of whether there is any ‘there’ there. Does he play cards? Does he collect memorabilia? Paint? Anything? Bueller? I feel I know something of the remaining candidates. Mitt is opaque.

Spot-on and dead solid perfect.

If the Mitt doesn’t fit, he must then go quit.

    We know that he has friends who own NFL teams, and he has friends involved in NASCAR. I believe that’s his way of saying that he likes football and he likes races. Somehow I just can’t see him watching a football game – or any other sport for that matter.

      I can see him watching baseball or basketball, which was all the guys like him of his generation watched.

    There’s a lot of truth to that statement.

    I appreciate the sentiments and have seen them broadcase widely in MSM, but there is a flaw in the argument. Romney has been labeled a “flip-flopper” by most every media outlet and website in the country. But is the charge fair? Or accurate? I maintain “no”. Let’s start with the abortion question … an easy one since the history is well known. ROmney entered politics taking pro-choice positions, As governor, his thinking with respect to abortion changed. He became openly, politically pro-life saying that his personal view as always pro-life. Who can say? How does that represent a “flip-flop”. To me, it represents growth – a change in position. Did Romney change from Pro-life, to pro-choice, to pro-life again for some sort of political expediency? No. He remains pro-life to this day. Can anyone say that they maintain the same position on every issue today that they did at 18? That’s not consistency, that’s stunted with respect to growth and maturity. To me, a flip-flop would represent TWO changes in position, not one. Can anybod name an issue on which Romney has changed, then changed BACK? THAT would constitute a “flip-flop”. I can’t think of any.
