Every day, some right-winger bombards the offices of Capitol Hill Blue with the outlandish claim that Mitt Romney is somehow qualified to be President because he is a good businessman.
Christ, what a crock. Business has nothing to do with running a country and many could argue that it is the kind of big business that Romney represents that has put this country into economic chaos.
While Romney may know how to make money, being a head of state has nothing to do with getting rich. A President requires many skills — most of which neither Romney or current President Mitt Romney possess — and running a jobs-sucking hedge fund ain’t one of them.
At this point, someone in the peanut gallery will rise up in righteous indignation with “yeah, but a businessman is better than a community organizer.”
Granted, it shouldn’t take much to be better than a monumental failure like Barack Obama.
But Mitt Romney, in our opinion, ain’t the one for the job.
Romney’s biggest problem is the one that inflicts many candidates of his ilk: A constant attack of incompetence that sends projectile verbal diarrhea spewing out of his mouth and coating the political landscape with stuff that stinks to high heaven.
The presumed GOP candidate’s overseas junket proves once again that he can’t think on him feet. Hell, he probably has trouble walking and chewing gum without stumbling.
Without a prepared script, Romney is a cross between Henny Youngman and Rodney Dangerfield. His one-liners fall flat and he gets no respect because he doesn’t deserve any.
He lacks the ability to multitask, is easily distracted and can’t stay on message because that message is constantly shifting.
As governor of Massachusetts, he avoided getting into the nitty-gritty of politics or government operation. He chooses to tout a record that falls apart under scrutiny.
Newsweek magazine focuses on what it calls Romney’s “Wimp factor.”
Good call. Romney is a wimp. We’ve had enough wimps in the White House. Don’t we have any leaders in this nation?
For some reason, watching Romney stumble and mumble his way through his muddled campaign reminds us of a surprising speech given many years ago by the father of one of the Marshall University football players killed in a plane crash in West Virginia.
During the memorial service, the father said this of his son:
He didn’t know the meaning of the word “fear.” In fact, he didn’t know the meaning of a lot of words.
