Chan Lowe: The Mitt steamroller


That giant sigh you hear is from right wing true believers who are just cottoning onto the fact that no matter how passionate they are, no matter how loudly they scream, the great, woolly political machine is going to deny them their hopes and dreams.

They wanted, just once, to feel good about whom they were voting for. No more compromises (that awful, Communistic word). They didn’t even care if their man or woman won the general election. They just wanted to settle down in front of the flat screen next October, break out the pork rinds, and watch their champion kick that skinny holier-than-thou foreigner’s butt all over the debate set.

So what if the Pretender stays in the White House, they say. At least he’d be a good target. Hating him viscerally has been, and would continue to be, a cleansing, cathartic experience. Romney? He’s like a bag of oatmeal. Bland, boring, and you get no joy from punching it. The scary thing about him, of course, is that he manages to pander to so many people that he might actually win, and then we could be stuck with that telephone answering machine voice of his for eight years.

Maybe the answer is a third-party candidacy. Smash-Mouth Newt with Rick Santorum as his purifying running mate. That would make the establishment sit up, all right. A three-way debate where our boy could slap Obama and Romney around until their eyes reel. We’ll have some melted Velveeta drizzled on those pork rinds, thank you very much.

Oh, what fun to watch the GOP candidates turn into Cannibals .....Looks like they are getting a taste of religion and eating their own,,,,,
Obama won't have to "slice & dice" them...They seem to be doing a fine job of that by themselves...Serve them up on a platter, with a little Ketchup on the side....

Yes , the difference is that everyone of their candidates except Santorium would be a much better President than President Obama . Perhaps Mr. Lowe you have forgotten the Clinton vs Obama campaign of a few years ago when it comes to nasty campaigns .

How quickly we forget Biden's dissaproval of an Obama presidency. Remember during the 2008 democratic primaries when Biden said Obama would make a terrible president? The video is floating out there. With all due respect Mr Lowe, take your liberal slanting and shove it! People are sick of entitlements, handouts and lazy do nothing leeches. We're taking back America from the liberal, hypocritical, class warfare mongering loons in 2012.
