Stephen Stills on Romney: ‘I never thought I’d see a creepier politician than Nixon’

Stephen Stills on Romney in Rolling Stone.

I couldn’t believe how [Romney] acted at that debate. He’s a churlish little prick. At least Bush was affable. I don’t care if it’s a debate and you’re running for office. It’s not right to be that rude to the President of the United States, let alone anybody else. Also, you don’t get offended when you get corrected

With only a few days left, there is very little opportunity for nuance, so I will just tell you from my gut. I never in my lifetime thought I would see a creepier politician than Richard Nixon, but in the last few days, it became clear that Willard Mitt Romney is really, really creepy.

More than any politician I’ve ever seen, Romney just lies openly and continually, changing his supposed beliefs to fit the moment. And he’s not very good at it either.

Stills points out that at least Dubya was affable. Romney has no charm or warmth or even a pretense of it. While Stills enthusiastically endorses Obama, my view is, which box of turds do you want on your doorstep on Tuesday? The Obama turd box is smaller, that’s the difference.
