David Brooks: Mitt Romney Is 'The Least Popular Candidate In History' (VIDEO)
Source: Huffington Post
After a rocky week that saw plenty of conservatives break away from Mitt Romney, New York Times columnist David Brooks summed up the state of affairs on Sunday.
"Look at his high unfavorable ratings," host David Gregory said. "At 50%. The highest of any candidate running in recent memory. This is an image problem that his philosophical statements in this speech in May to fundraisers only exacerbates."
Brooks did not mince words, calling Romney "the least popular candidate in history."
"He has to look at what the president's weakness is," Brooks said. "He's never gonna win a popularity contest."

3. David Brooks is smart.
He has not allowed the tea bagger movement to push him any farther to the right than he already was. He will have a career after Romney is forgotten.

9. "Obama has no second term agenda. He's intellectually exausted." Oh, fuck off Brooks!
His agenda is to continue to fix the economy, end the war in Afghanistan, end the Bush tax cuts for the rich, save and improve Medicare and SS, work on the debt in the right way, and, hopefully, do it all with help of Democratic congress. And what is MittTwit's agenda? Selling off the country to the highest bidder and stealing for the poor and middle class to continue to line the pockets of his corporate cronies doubling down in trickle down.

11. Why unleash your anger at me?
Why don't you direct your rage at the OP?
I was merely expressing my feelings about the fact that David brooks actually called Romney "the least popular candidate in history" on national television.
I hadn't watched the video yet when I made that comment.
I hadn't heard his comments about "Obama has no second term agenda.
He's intellectually exhausted."
I was reacting to the OP, not to the video.
Lighten up, I'm on your side!
