Former governor Mitt Romney, in a new introduction to a book somebody wrote for him, strongly criticizes President Obama, writing that “my worst fears about the president have come true and it looks like he could get re-elected which means I'll have to wait another four years to get into the White House.’’
Life is hard, Mitt. If you don't believe us, just ask your dog. On the bright side, the fact that you've had every position there is on the issues means you won't need to do much updating for the voters. "Yeah, me too" should about do it.
In the book’s new introduction, Romney gives an apparent nod to the Tea Party movement, criticizing Democrats in sharp populist language for pushing a greater role for government.Oops. Forgot about that one. Since there wasn't a Tea Party during the 2010 election, you'll have to explain how, as the moderate governor of a progressive state, you've always been a Tea Partier at heart, right? So what's your opening gambit?
“Like the monarch the revolutionaries rejected, they have no limit on the amount they would tax the people and their enterprises,’’ he adds. “Rather than admire the heritage of peaceful assembly and petition, they ridicule and demean assemblies of ordinary citizens who protest their grand health care plans, takeovers, and bailouts.’’Ooo. Palin-speak. We like it. A fresh word salad of unconnected ideas phrased pretty much incomprehensibly, but spelled right. You're the thinking man's patriot Mitty boy. What else you got?
Romney also strongly criticizes the president’s health care law, which is bound to become a sticky argument, since the national plan was largely based on the one Romney steered to passage in Massachusetts.Yeah, that's a toughie. If only Massachusetts had fallen into the sea after you were governor this would be much easier. Gonna take some careful planning here to distance yourself from your own record. Don't want a repeat of New Hampshire.
“They have enacted 2,000 pages of health care legislation, and while the politicians did not take the time to read it before they voted, small businesses will have no choice but to read and comply with every one of its new mandates and provisions,’’ Romney writes.HAHAHAHAHA!! That's pretty funny. Romney actually thinks politicians read the bills they pass. Hey Mitty, ever hear of the Patriot Act?
And as for small businesses, yeah...except no.
Romney had nearly 412 different opinions in the final five weeks of 2010 and starts out this year with more positions than a Yogi on speed, according to newly filed "Keeping Up With Mitt" disclosure forms. His political action committee — called the Please Let Mitt Be President PAC — begins 2011 with more flip flops than any other prospective presidential candidate.
