Unserious Mitt - The American Spectator | USA News and Politics
Unserious Mitt
by

In baseball you get three strikes. In politics you’re done and dusted after two. Sometimes after one.

Level heads must question the phrase “seriously considering” when it comes to Mitt Romney’s 2016 ambitions. Here’s a guy who lost to John McCain in 2008 (John McCain!), and then lost in 2012 to the pathetically unsuccessful and unpopular president of a floundering country in 2012 (with chants of “electability” ringing in his ears). And now he thinks he could beat Hillary Clinton in 2016? What the hell is “serious” about this?  

We need to find another adjective to describe the delusions of a thoroughly decent man. A man who would make a fine cabinet member but who is every bit as talented at losing elections (don’t forget he also lost a Senate race by 17 points to Ted Kennedy in ’94 while Republicans elsewhere were running the table) as he is at making money in the private sector.
