Today’s NYTimes includes the latest from opinion-writer Tim Egan, a comment on the figment that is politician Mitt Romney. There is a real ex-Gov. Romney and a businessman Romney and a Grandfather Mitt, but those are not on the political sales counter for the fall. I wouldn’t use the nasty term “empty suit” for the GOP product; I think it is more like a simple clothespin that you can use to hang up a sock full of grievances.
From where I stand, it looks like the Congressional GOP members for the past two years did everything they could to keep a heavy foot on the brake so that the national economy would not gain any speed, while they watched the clock run down on the Obama presidency—betting that a majority of voters would give the President a failing grade in Nov 2012. The strategy may work, but what has the cost been to the men, women, and children of America?
