Finally! Romney doesn't flip-flop.

Last edited Tue Sep 18, 2012, 11:10 PM - Edit history (1)

It looks like he's sticking to what he was caught saying at that fund-raiser. Voters are now informed on exactly what he believes, what values he holds.

To the surprise of everyone outside of DU, his real values turn out to be despicable. Now, Romney has defined this election emphatically as a class-warfare battle, with an assault against the middle and lower classes. Everyone here knows those people at the dinner believed what Romney does because they made donations above the $50 thousand dollar meal. Let's face it, Romney thought he could speak freely because he was among like-minded colleagues and mostly he was right. It took months for this to come out.

As Ann Romney said in March (?), we've finally see the man beyond the zipper, the real Romney. The striking thing about his politically revealing "wardrobe malfunction" is how he presents himself to his only constituents. To hear him say it, he's valiantly going up against an almost insurmountable 47 percentage point lead, against the hordes of lazy, undeserving, titsucking, dependents: single mothers, welfare queens, social security recipients, war veterans, unemployed, malingering pseudo-disabled pirates and all the other Randian second-handers. As far as he's concerned, this fantasy throng is the only thing standing between the wealthy and another tax cut. Romney's Reliable One Percent will vote for him no matter what, and will now still vote for him even after this is out, unless they stay at home in despair.

The Republicans and Conservatives got the candidate they deserve. A banal, vacuous, thoughtless, arrogant, greedy, stupid, ruthless, self-satisfied brat. He's supposed to be a "moderate" Republican. I think, however, the other "moderate" or "compassionate" Republican presidents of our age could have been caught saying the same thing he did. That is the two Bushes. They were banal in the same way Romney is, raised wealthy and insulated from the middle and lower classes, taught to fear them, and instilled with their own unshakeable sense of entitlement, while being misinformed that they were working for everything they obtained.

Even the conservatives who rose from the lower classes have to imitate the decadent values brought about by the life of a wealthy family's son. They have to praise that ethos and show it with deeds to get investments, or if you're a politician to get donations from the wealthy.

It's very telling, and ironic, that after flip-flopping on everything else, his opinion on the 47 percent would be what he publicly sticks to. This says something, shows it's an issue very near his shrunken, atrophied heart. Romney must actually fear hellfire if he lied about this.

The press is declaring this to be the issue that has lost Romney the election. No, that was last week, (I guess the press can't remember) with his response to the riots and murders of our diplomats in Libya. This time, he has hurt the whole Republican Party. He's now an asset to the Democrats, and he could lose the Repubs both houses of Congress. I'm overjoyed. I haven't felt this way since 1980.

The question I want answered is, who leaked this to the press, and how did Romney screw them over so bad that they would throw this bomb? I suspect Romney is a shit behind the scenes, and there's a vendetta at work, but we may never know.

3. You have a point.


. . . but he sounds so emphatic on this one that if does flip-flop, it will make it worse for him.

Romney is what Machiavelli would call the Anti-Prince.

5. I am almost convinced Romney answers to no one and he considers only ambition.

In some ways he fits better in Shakespearian play or would have been a good match for Republican or Imperial Rome. His ambition would have been curbed effectively in ancient Rome

6. Would have been a good match...


...if he were born into the right patrician family. As a pleb he'd probably suffer a violent death before his current age.
