No one is buying what Mitt Romney is selling. Voters love strength and hate wishy-washy politicians, especially Republican voters. And no one does wishy-washy, flippy-floppy like Mitt Romney.
No one recovers from flip-flops this large, this brazen and this over the top. It's like he's arguing that he is a black Jew. Dude, you just said you were a white Mormon and I can see with my own two eyes that you aren't black. But he still looks at you with a straight face and tells you, "No, I believe in my heart now that I am black and Jewish." Okay, whatever. Who's next?
And now my suspicions have been confirmed. In the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll he got a whopping 4% of the Republican voters. Where's that fork?
No one, outside of the media and some rich donors, knew who this guy was anyway. And then their first impression was of a super-slick guy with better than good hair who was slipperier than a wet fish in a jello wrestling contest. Throw in the random Mormon bias this country has (as if your religion is any less absurd), and you had the icing on the he-never-had-a-chance cake.
He could have recovered from the Mormon thing. He couldn't recover from being the slickest guy on the planet. Every time I saw him speak there was one thing that kept running through my head, "I don't believe a word you're saying. I don't believe a word you're saying. I don't believe ..."
Anyway, he's got a couple of weeks, maybe a couple of months max left in him. But Mr. 4% ain't going anywhere but back home. It was nice knowing you Mitt. Well, not really, but you get the point.
