Mitt-out scruples

Mitt Romney has hit a stunning new low. In fact, I would use the term "trope codifier" to describe this display of hypocrisy. Of Hillary's announcement speech, he said:
"Somehow when you see her on a stage or when she comes into a room full of people, she’s smiling with her mouth but her eyes are saying, ‘Where’s my latte?’ It just doesn’t suggest that she believes everything she’s saying,” Romney said on Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” speaking via satellite from Salt Lake City.

He also expressed skepticism that Clinton will be able to sell her populist message “when she makes in one hour a multiple of what an average American will make in a year.”
Yes, that's Mitt Romney, regular guy, just the average American hard-workin' Joe, trying to convince us that Hillary Clinton is an elitist and therefore too removed from the concerns of ordinary people. (How would Mitt even know what a latte is?)

If Mitt Romney isn't running, and if he holds no office at present, why won't he go away? Is he angling for the vice presidency?
According to recent headlines, Mitt is angling for the job of Kingmaker, his nod bringing wild success to the recipient, rather than working as a sure kiss of death. Funniest detail about the recent conference was noting that a round of Sunrise Pilates had been scheduled for the attendees by wife Ann and Mark Halperin.

Romney also said his biggest mistake in 2012 was not reaching out to minority communities. Hummm. Do you see any reverse in Republican circles?? What I see and hear is more like put the pedal to the metal--irritate and exclude as many minorities as possible. As for the elitist tag? Of all people to be talking 'eyes begging for a latte,' Mitt Romney is the most disingenuous messenger for equality. Or anything else for that matter. Something HRC mentioned in her speech Sunday was the GOP's mass amnesia when it comes to economic inequality, those trickle down ideas that have been continuously proven wrong [see Brownback and the Laffer philosophy in Kansas or Jindal and Norquist in Louisiana for a startling reminder].

Romney's still convinced the voters got it wrong in 2012.

They didn't.

All hail, John Edwards. He was "Two Americas" before anyone noticed.
Brent Budowsky argues that Mitt is positioning himself to take the nomination, after all the others so bloody and debase themselves in debates and attacking one another, that he looks clean and pristine by comparison.
Brent B: That's why I think, too. He's not running, but he's willing to be drafted.
"Brent Budowsky" and my eyes glaze over. Seriously. Please, people whose posts I otherwise like. So insufferable.
