Romney carefully calibrates
It has just occurred to me: If Mitt Romney is elected, everybody should be happy. Those who voted for him will be pleased, of course. And those who did not should think, “At last, public opinion and the wishes of the majority will finally carry the day. The social media will speak to him, and he will obey.”
I have no idea what Romney really thinks, but I know what he says. His words are carefully tuned to his audience of the moment as he says what he thinks they want to hear. He can try to tell us that black and white are interchangeable, but the public’s malarkey detector is strong and getting stronger, through practice, I’m afraid.
People are not going to be happy with being made the givers, or victims, while he caters to his takers, the beneficiaries of his policy of the moment.
Wishy-washy Romney! He’ll get on-the-job training, for sure, if he is unfortunate enough to win.
