Mitt Romney written off for the fifth time this month
So, guys, you may have heard about this video. It supposedly makes Mitt Romney really bad and stuff, like a total jerkwad with no chance of recovering from the stupid things he said. This might be true, but we’d like to make another argument: That Mitt Romney really wasn’t doing all that great in the first place and therefore a spare idiotic comment shouldn’t really surprise one. “What are you talking about, casually inquisitive blogger?”, you ask. Well … we’d like to remind you that Mitt Romney is already the unloved candidate. And has been for a really long time. Examples:
first Mitt Romney spent months as the guy that nobody on the right seemed really, truly excited about. It got to the point where speculation raged that some of the renegade Ron Paulies would try to pull the nomination out from other him.
then Then his campaign got nailed for tactical error after tactical error, one more embarrassing than the last. He took it to another level last week, attacking the president on a foreign policy issue in a way that misrepresented the situation.
now Already way down in the polls, now there’s a new video out that makes Romney look like he’s attacking half the country for being lazy in front of a tiny, exclusive fundraiser. (Ironically, the video was leaked by Jimmy Carter’s grandson, who is currently an unemployed political tracker. His grandaddy gets compared to Mitt a lot.) And the inevitable write-offs are happening again. You know what? If anything causes Mitt to lose the election, it’ll be this … and every other criticism he’s faced.
» A footnote: On this week’s Saturday Night Live, the cold open with Jay Pharoah playing Obama (about time, he deserved it) tells you everything you need to know about this race. Say what you will about Obama, but these races are won on perception, and Mitt has the effect of reminding us that, whatever frustrations folks might have with Obama, Mitt makes him look better every day.
