(Ed. note: I would just like to note that I don’t pity Romney at all. — MJWS)
Well, apparently, the big news yesterday, if you are a Republican, is that President Obama made the statement that you can’t change Washington from the inside — that you have to change it from the outside. Not that this is anything new for Obama. He says things like this all the time, as you would expect from a president who thinks empowering people is a good idea.
But Romney, desperate as he is for something to run on, thinks this is big.
Here’s the money quote:
The president today threw in the white flag of surrender again. He said he can’t change Washington from inside. He can only change it from outside. Well, we’re giving him that chance in November. He’s going outside!
I can change Washington, I will change Washington. We’ll get the job from the inside. Republicans and Democrats will come together.
Um, Mitt, this is pathetically stupid. In fact, this is so stupid I’m sure the gang at Fox & Friends will be all over it because only really stupid people will think this is problem for Obama.
And the thought that you’re going to bring Democrats and Republicans together? Hell, you can’t even bring Republicans together. And, given that you only have 53% to work with, what’s the point?
Mitt Romney is becoming so sad that I am actually having a hard time watching him. The sense of pity is almost unbearable. As I think some people used to say, “ick.”
