Romney wasn’t criticizing Obama’s Libya policy with his statement. He was lying. He was making cheap political points out of the killings of four American public servants. From his tin-eared criticism of our closest ally during the Olympics, to his bluster on sensitive dealings with China and Iran, to his failure to even mention troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq during his Tampa speech, Romney is proving he would be a disaster as president.
Critics (and even some admirers) have pointed to Romney’s success at Bain Capital and noted that it was predicated on his willingness to do anything it took to close a deal. Mr. Bain will do or say anything to close the deal on his presidential run, including lie. It’s ugly, and it won’t work. Romney will pay for his cruel Sept. 11 opportunism in November.
MAKE ROMNEY PAY!!
I want the conclusion here to be true, but folks, let’s be very clear: there is no amount of him being a horrible being that will stop him from being president if we don’t vote. The more I see people sure that he can’t possibly win the more nervous I get because I remember Bush. And I know about Nixon. And yes, Bush stole the election but it was only possible because it was close, far closer than it needed to be. We can’t be complacent. Romney might have already alienated enough swing voters to put his defeat within our grasp but we still have to reach out and take it.
All that horrible stuff about voter suppression and purges and ID laws? That’s happening because they know the key is to stop as many people who aren’t their die-hard supporters from voting. Turn-out is the key here.
When you read or hear or think “Romney can’t possibly win” or “Romney cannot be president”, don’t take that as a prophecy, take it as a plan of action. He can’t win. We can’t let him.
