‘how obama beats the rombot’

Matt Latimer (The Daily Beast): All the turmoil in the GOP 2012 field only enables Mitt Romney – and that must make the White House very happy. Former Bush speechwriter Matt Latimer on the Republicans’ disastrous presumptive nominee.

…..There were more than a few of us who believed that Tim Pawlenty would eventually triumph in the Republican primaries under the slogan, “He Annoys You The Least.” But he was so easily overshadowed by Herman Cain and Rick Santorum in last week’s far too early GOP debate that he really ought to drop out just on principle.

With the latest fundraising news, and yet another round in the Newt Gingrich gaffe-o-lympics, it looks like the GOP is going to come up Romney after all. All this of course is wonderful news for the Obama White House. There is no more ideal candidate for the President to run against than Governor Rombot himself.

…Romney comes off as the candidate who refuses to blow his nose until it has been sketched out days earlier with overpaid consultants, put before three separate focus groups, and only tended to by tissue paper made in Iowa or New Hampshire.

…Last week he delivered a PowerPoint presentation on health care to a helpless audience at the University of Michigan … it was for students the equivalent of watching their parents’ vacation slides … it led to hilarious headlines: “Mitt Romney: I Will Never Impose My Awesome Massachusetts Law On The Nation.”

Team Obama has to be lighting candles every day for a gift like this. Romney will prove so predictable, so calculated, so filled with everything money can buy but ideas that the White House can already plot out his every utterance – all the way from his love of ethanol in Iowa to his gauzy Reagan-invoking ads in New Hampshire to his selection of Huckabee as a running mate to his short, gracious concession speech on election night, his hair immobile in the gentle Massachusetts wind.

….President Obama can easily make Romney’s poll-tested but unthinking “less government” mantra look heartless and the governor’s sunny, nonspecific, cotton candy rhetoric look like, well, a vapid PowerPoint presentation. Romney’s army of consultants will have nothing to offer their candidate except gaping mouths. This is what happens when you only play a conservative on TV.

    THE GOP GATHERING…AKA…THE ‘LOSER LINE-UP!’ CANDIDATES LIKE ROMNEY DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT THE WORD ‘NO’ MEANS! THEY JUST KEEP COMING BACK FOR MORE. THESE GUYS NEED TO MAKE THEIR CAMPAIGN SIGNAGE OUT OF VELCRO…THAT WAY ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS CHANGE THE YEAR!

    If you had shown me a pic of Romney and told me nothing else about him, I would tell you not to trust that guy. He looks too slick. I felt the same way about John Edwards. Sorry former supporters. 🙂

    My husband & I feel sorta sorry for the Rombot when his name comes up. He just looks so uncomfortable & fidgity trying to endorse all these wingnutty ideas he just doesn’t seem to really believe. He’s really a horrible politician. Just sort of pitiful to watch. He does look presidential, until he opens his mouth…then it’s all down hill. I don’t believe a word he says.

    Please Lord send us lots of jobs so I can keep my wonderful president that I trust and enjoy everyday.

    I agree with your statement and your wonderful prayer cat48. Rombot does look uncomfortable when he’s in the presence of a group of people or reporters. How is he gonna survive this campaign run especially a debate with POTUS?

    I almost feel so for Romney, Pawlenty, etc. who are selling their souls to the devil to appease the Tea Party.

    ……and as careful as he and his advisers are, eventually he will put his foot in his mouth big time, just like his father George did, and stopped all presidential aspirations for him. I forget what it was he said, but it was a huge gaffe, and he never recovered. Perhaps that’s one reason Mitt is so careful and stiff…..
