Romney goes all in
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
And with his prospects in all but one swing state evaporating, Mitt Romney decided to take a calculated risk. In a high school auditorium just outside Columbus, Ohio, Mitt said:
“I’ve been across this country. My heart aches for the people I’ve seen. And the difference between me and President Obama is I know what to do and I will do what it takes to get this economy going.”
It must be that he is misreading the polls or panic has clouded his judgment. Because, if, as is increasingly likely, he loses his bid to become the first U.S. President to wear magic underwear, he has just subjected himself to merciless ribbing at the country club. Mitt, tell us again how your heart aches for the people who won’t take control of their lives? And what’s your plan, eh? Telling them how you amassed a $100 million 401K without committing a crime?
The smirking will be unbearable for Ann.
