Again, I was kind of hoping to write about something I could inject a little satire into today. However, I’m going to have to leave the funnier posts for later in the week because there is simply no ignoring the offensive comments coming out of the mouth of RepubliRobot, Mitt Romney, of late.
As I’m sure you can probably imagine, I’ve been completely fascinated by the embarrassing shit show that is the Republican presidential race. Some nights, I literally sit back with a glass of wine (or bottle depending on how much air time Rick Santorum gets) and watch with almost masturbatory glee as these Republiclowns tear each other apart and then implode before our very eyes.
The latest to implode? Willard “Mitt” Romney.
Romney has so little personality that he makes Ben Stein look like Lady Gaga – that’s no secret. However, what has been a secret (to some extent) is just how poor Romney is at thinking on his feet. Beginning with the laughably awful interview he gave to Brett Baier a couple of months ago, Romney seems to just totally lose the plot anytime a camera’s on him – kind of a problem if you’re running to be President of the United States Of America, dontcha think?
This past weekend, Romney inexplicably decided to attack former US Ambassador To China (and last place Republican presidential candidate), Jon Huntsman, for..umm..being the US Ambassador to China. He criticized Huntsman for serving in the Obama administration while Romney ‘was trying to get Republicans elected back home.’
At the Meet The Press debate on Sunday, Huntsman thankfully came out SHARPLY against Romney by saying (among other things) that he will always put country first over politics – and rightfully so! He went on to ask what kind of example it would’ve shown his two boys currently serving in the navy if he had declined to serve his country because of politics.
I’m a big fan of Huntsman’s – even though he’s a Repub. I disagree with him about abortion and gay marriage, but he’s (dare I say it) a sensible Republican with a long track record of economic success as Governor of Utah. It’s nice to see him finally getting his moment in the sun up in New Hampshire.
Watch below as Romney comes off sounding like a total schmuck by doubling down on his attack on Huntsman.
