Mitt Romney: The incredible erasable candidate

Guest post by Comrade Misfit
Ed. note: This is Comrade Misfit's third guest post at The Reaction. Her first looked back at when Romney was pro-choice, which wasn't all that long ago, while her second looked at Romney's incessant flip-flopping. For more of her writing, head over to her very fine blog, Just an Earth-Bound Misfit, I, which I highly recommend. -- MJWS

The Etch-a-Sketch Candidate: "I can be whatever you want me to be."

The Romney campaign, as much as they are trying to retract the comment, told the truth two days ago: Everything that Romney has said or promised during the primary campaign has been complete and utter bullshit. Romney will flip from being a "severe conservative" to Mister Middle-of-the-Road. He'll get up and deny that he meant anything he said during the primary campaign and that, in the Fall, we can really trust him now.

It's a lesson he learned at Bain Capital, when his job was to lie like a patent-medicine salesman to get the shareholders of a company to agree to being taken over. Romney and his boys at Bain would proclaim how they valued the company, what it did and they'd only make it better. But then, as we all know, they'd load up the company with debt and then loot the company, leaving people out of work, factories shuttered and towns devastated. All the while, the Bain boys laughed all the way to their vacation houses in the Hamptons and in Vail.

Republicans are being fools if they think they can believe or rely on anything that Romney says. I won't say that they are "being fooled," for there is abundant evidence that Romney believes nothing other than he should be in charge.
