Comedy of errors? Foreign affairs faux pas? Diplomatic disaster? Miscalculation? Insult to Palestinian culture? Insult to British intelligence? Looking like a confused scarecrow? Incompetent [with money]?
Mitt's back in the U.S.A. Whew! We understand here about crude and awkward wealthy people. After all, we have Paris Hilton and Donald Trump. But when he goes outside our borders he simply personifies the rich, misinformed, greedy, selfish, nincompoop.
Can you imagine what Mitt Romney must have said in private conversations with leading foreign officials? Can you imagine what he said when he was not filtered through speech writers, well-paid advisers, etc.?
It has been a very-very long time since we had two competent candidates running for President of the U.S. Think now, how far back do we have to go? At least Dwight D. Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson. Well, perhaps a case might be made for George Bush, Sr. and Bill Clinton, but that's pushing it. After all, Bush yawned at debates, kept looking at his watch, and was generally bored with having to share any time or make any effort for another human being. His son was too incompetent to even yawn; he simply had no clue as to what was going on. And unlike Romney's greed successes, George W. Bush never had any success in business at anything that was not simply given to him in one way or another.
Obama has disappointed me in many ways, and I have listed those things from time to time here. But Mitt Romney is simply unqualified to be President. He is a misfire, a mistake, an unending series of gaffs, and expresses the most greedy objective one can imagine. He will kiss anybody, change courses, deny, obfiscate, deceive, lie, and misspeak endlessly. Mitt is a series of crucial and major mistakes waiting to happen. On top of that, he has now taken the extreme right-wing, greedy position that the financial policies of George W. Bush were so "good" that we should try the same thing over and look for a different outcome. Huh?
I don't care which way you lean in your politics, left or right, but we should begin to demand quality candidates for the most important elected position in the world. Don't ya think?
