Romney was stunning.

Romney doesn't want to be President of the United States. He thinks he's running for President of the World. He has no concept of the sovreignty of nations. He has no understanding of history nor of the cultural inheritances that inform countries other than our own. In fact, important measures of our own history utterly escape him. If it doesn't appear in his accustomed spreadsheet it doesn't exist or it's irrelevant. His one skill is making money; his massive failure is his inability to comprehend that economies are not limited to money. His narrowness of vision, imposed on this nation, would render us incapable of functioning in a world where money is but one of many, many languages.

We had hoped that Sarah Palin would be the last worst example of inexcusable ignorance. Sadly, Mitt Romney presently captains a field of candidates who make Palin brilliant by default.

Horses and bayonets, indeed.

2. "His one skill is making money"

I would qualify this. Romney made a lot of money by exploiting a cultural blindness during a particular historical period, and through deceit.

I sincerely doubt he could do it again in another era.

3. He gets his intel from Fox News

Must have used their maps too.

Mitt is a clueless as they come.
