    There was a lot of talk about Libya last week, because Mitt Romney didn’t know when to shut up about dead Americans, including Chris Stevens, a good man who was our ambassador there.
    Somehow, in a terrible moment like that, Romney was boneheaded enough to hand political advantage over to the other side, despite the fact that the President went ahead with a scheduled campaign stop in Las Vegas the next day, as if delaying his appearance by an hour was a suitable mourning period.
    But it is not just Libya. It is everything that has happened lately as Romney and the amateurs around him continue to run one of the worst campaigns of recent memory, even against one of the worst economies any sitting President has ever tried to defend.
    The people around Romney don’t just look like amateurs, they look like clowns sometimes. Romney was never going to be a great candidate; he doesn’t have it in him, he too often comes across like some stiff poster boy for all the one-percenters who want him elected. But you thought he would do better than this, with the whole thing sitting right there for him, because of this President’s record on the economy and on jobs. Only Mitt Romney has taken an election that should have been his to win and made it something for Barack Obama to lose.

    I agree that it was a winnable election - but not by Romney or any of the other bizarre NaziCon candidates.

    Plus, it should have been obvious knowing that McCain rejected Romney for Palin. Geezus H. Kryst, that should have sent up enough red flags.

    Plus, Romney is a major PRICK with an elitist attitude. He shows that in many ways. His wife has the same elitist/uppity attitude.

    It is understandable to be against Obama.
    It is impossible to understand being for Rmoney.
    But, clowns have won before (Ronnie and W. for example).

    For all his supposed political "smarts," Mitt Romney has yet to demonstrate that he can act "presidential."

    Instead of responding like Ronald Reagan or limiting his remarks to expressing condolences for the lives lost at the Lybian Embassy, Romney launched into a partisan attack on the President without even bothering to get his facts straight.

    Romney showed himself to be unfit to sit in the Oval Office. That kind of shoot from the hip response is exactly what we don't want.
