It’s Not Good
By James Turnage
Pat Caddell, FOX news contributor labeled Romney’s campaign “the worst in my lifetime”.
Sadly, this is a very apt description of a man whose own acceptance speech at his convention was not finalized until the last minute. His own party has labeled his campaign “specifics-free and lame”. An inside joke is that he badly needs a consultant from his former company, Bain Capital.
He knows that his only chance to become president rests on his continual attacks on the economy, though he has given us no details as to how he would repair it. And the facts show that our economy is improving as slowly as it was forecasted by most economists. No one labeled it as a depression, but by my estimation is was damn close.
What he should never do is utter one sentence about foreign affairs or ‘entitlement’ programs. He fails miserably when he makes any statement about our relations with other countries, he knows nothing. And his and Ryan’s position on social security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Planned Parenthood is frightening.
Reports state that he basically writes his own speeches. He probably shouldn’t. Most on the left and even many on the right have labeled him “unlikeable”. There are reasons for that. One is that he’s incapable of cinching up his ‘mom’ jeans and speaking at the same time. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist). The main reason he is not popular stumping around America is that he says nothing positive. He attacks, attacks, and attacks, often with lies and half-truths, all the while saying nothing. That’s not completely true. He stated his true beliefs at a fund raiser and look how that’s going.
