Alright, Romney fans. Measured Mitten’s sizable head for a crown, have you? Not so fast. Plenty of us aren’t fans:
This morning Mitt Romney said he wasn’t concerned about the poor. The poor, after all, have food stamps and Medicaid. But don’t worry. If the safety net is broken, Patrician Mitt Romney will fix it so the poor can stay comfortably poor. After all, just look what he did in Massachusetts.
Zing. And didn’t Massachusetts love him for it? No.
Note the use of “they’re” in talking about the middle class. They have been hurt most. Not the poor. Not the rich. So much for the GOP condemning class warfare. Romney’s folks are going with it too . . The National Review sure does know how to pick them . .
Who’s the liberal scold? Erick Erickson, proprietor of ultra-right-wing Red State blog. I post this to demonstrate a point: Neither Mittens nor Newton can deal with prosperity. Once one of them gains the upper hand, he shoots his stupid mouth off, and what hard-won momentum he had tanks. In short, these two are clumsy. Incompetents.
Fer’instance. Riding high after his big upset in South Carolina, Gingrich spoke to a Florida crowd a week ago. He lobbied them with a bold vision:
“I think the number is 13,000 — when we have 13,000 Americans living on the moon, they can petition to become a state,” recalled Gingrich.
“By the end of my second term, we will have the first permanent base on the moon and it will be American,” Gingrich added. “We will have commercial near-Earth activities that include science, tourism and manufacturing.”
The crowd showered him with mosaic applause and laughter. Good job, Newton. Mitt just beat you easily, on Tuesday.
Now it’s Romney’s turn to step on his own d*ck. Done! This could go on for a while.
