Mitt is Not Only A Bore…He’s a Fraud!

Destroying Jobs at Bain Capital

 

Is Mitt Romney the Answer?

There will be much speculation about what brought on the Texas bumbler Slick Rick’s demise, but I think putting his dumb verbose wife out front with her annoying Texas cracker drawl, explaining how Ricky was not properly prepared for the previous debates but he was really boning up for the next one, and solemnly promised he would do better, was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

From all appearances Ricky has waited too late to seek the aid of tutors, for he has been exposed to the world as an empty vessel; as one observer put it: “Rickey is a Texas cowboy who is all hat and no cattle!”  And like Humpty Dumpty after his great fall: all the Texas cattlemen and all the Texas Oil Men can’t put Ricky’s campaign back together again!

As Rick Perry’s star dramatically falls, threatening to crash and burn, Mitt Romney is on the rise. And when we look at the steady decline of the other contenders, Mitt emerges as the frontrunner by default. Although this does not insure that he will win the race to become the Republican candidate for the Oval Office, as I write he is the leader of the pack.  So the question facing the American electorate is whether Mitt has the answer to the protracted unemployment crisis that is gripping the country like an incurable disease?

Since he is building his campaign on the claim that his executive experience running companies in the private sector taught him how to devise  policies in government that will lead to a boom in job creation, this is a reasonable question to ask.  Mitt has even taken to scornfully dismissing his adversaries in the race as economic know nothings who have never managed a corner store.  The trouble with Mitt’s argument is that, unlike Herman Cain for instance, he has never run a corner store – or any store – either.

According to Eric A. Kriss, who was Mitt’s partner in Bain Capital where the Mittster made his enormous fortune, “Mitt ran a private equity firm, not a cement company.  He was not a business man in the sense of running a company.  He was a great presenter, a great spokesman and a great salesman.”  In fact Mitt was a corporate raider and job destroyer as Bain Capital bought and sold companies as if they were pig skins.  And as governor of Massachusetts his state was 47th of 50 states in Job creation!   Hence, contrary to his campaign claims: The Mittster is a flop as a job creator: He is all blow and no go on the economic front!!!

Furthermore this stiff, plastic, poseur is in the strange position of having to run away from his major achievement in establishing a health care system in Massachusetts when he was governor of the state.  The present Governor, Duval Patrick, says almost all citizens of the state are covered under this plan; it is the best in the nation. Yet here we see the ludicrous spectacle of Mitt running against Texas Governor Rick Perry for the Republican Presidential nomination, but is afraid to claim his achievement against a guy who presides over the state with the worst health  care coverage in the nation!

Mitt is also running away from his record as governor of the Bay State when he collected millions in taxes from his former corporate buddies by closing loopholes they previously enjoyed in order to eradicate budget deficits!   Both of these policies are examples of good government that any politician should be proud of, but because President Obama is pursing similar policies the Mittster is running away from his past achievements like foxes from a forest fire!

That’s why he is widely regarded as a fraud by many in the Republican Party – Dr. Rachel Maddow presented abundant evidence that Mitt is despised by people at all levels of the GOP – and is the object of open derision by the Tea Party types who make up a majority of the Republican base.  These yahoos regard Mitt the Stiff as a 24 karat phony and will tell anybody who asks!

The base is a major determinant in who wins the Republican nomination, and when the widespread perception that the Mittster is a fraud is coupled with the fact that many Evangelical Christians will not vote for a Mormon – their largest denomination, the southern Baptist, have called Mormonism “a cult” and their ministers are openly campaigning against him on religious grounds – there is a good chance that he could be knocked off by one of his two closest rivals.

However the Texas Governor exposes himself as a big numbskull every time he opens his mouth, which increases the possibility that Herman Cain could steal the nomination! Yet it is fairly easy to predict that Cain will be smoked  in the general election against President Obama! That’s why thePlutocrats, Mitt’s cronies, are desperately seeking an alternative.

They know that like a broken clock that’s right twice every day, the untutored mob that comprises the Republican base is right about Mitt.  Not only does he provide no solutions to the crippling problems that have the American working and middle classes in a death grip: he is being increasingly exposed as an unmitigated fraud!!

The Mittster: A Plastic Prick!

A 24 Karat Phony with no solutions!
