Do they really think we are that stupid?
I mean the Romney thing. First he says that the 47% of the population, who will vote for Obama no matter what, are all a bunch of doofuses who don’t pay taxes and who don’t merit his attention. OK. But I knew that about him anyway, remember he was Governor for 4 long years here in MA. Now he is on the stump revising what he said, and he now says it is “100% of the people” that he cares about.
So who do you believe? The Romney who was speaking candidly in front of his billionaire friends at that cozy dinner that cost them each $50,000, or do you believe the new and improved Romney who has since consulted with some campaign guru and is changing his tune?
Well, it’s simple really. It’s like this:
You go to the doctor with a pain in your head and they do studies and the doctor sits you down and says, “I’m sorry to tell you this but you have a tumor in your brain, it is inoperable, and we can’t do anything about it, so you will just have to live with the pain of it until it kills you.”
And you go off and have a good cry and wonder what to do next.
Then at your next appointment with that doctor, he says “Never mind what I told you before, everything is fine, those MRI’s were probably wrong and you probably won’t die of that tumor that is growing in there… maybe it will be fine…just go home and think positive thoughts.”
Of course the first was the real news and the second was the news-on-spin-control.
Which would you believe? I suppose if you are a glass-half-full type of person, you’d want to believe the 2nd explanation, but if you are a realist, like most of us who work for a living and do pay our taxes all our lives, you would tend to believe the first scenario.
This guy Romney is such a fake, always was and always will be. I still don’t know how a Democratic state like MA elected him governor in the first place, we must have been desperate or something. But now that we’ve gotten rid of him here, I certainly hope we don’t have to revert back to having him as our leader once again, only this time even worse, as The President. We have a perfectly good President now, why would we want to replace him with that poor excuse for a human being?
