Accusations of racism are probably unfair to Mitt, because let’s be honest, if he had actually even been thinking about Obama’s race, he wouldn’t have said what he did at all.
But here’s the most important– and true– accusation: Mitt Romney is obviously not ready for prime time. A libertarian friend of mine noted that Mitt Romney is trying so hard to posture as “the safe candidate” and this blunder proves he is anything but.
Romney has always seemed an empty suit to me, just another career politician with no core beliefs. But by his very emptiness and shallowness, he may just torpedoed his campaign.
I am so tired of sleazy politicians who believe in and care about nothing except their own ambition. And there are plenty of them in both parties.
