Romney lashes out at his father for indecision even as Romney himself vacillates wildly
“My dad really never seems to have made up his mind that he was getting in,” Romney told the Monitor’s Lauren R. Dorgan as reported in abcnews.go.com’s web log entry titled Mid-Summer Dreams A critical stretch for Romney and the GOP, while Democrats tack left
“My dad really never seems to have made up his mind that he was getting in,” Romney told the Monitor’s Lauren R. Dorgan. “He wasn’t certain. Well, I’m not that way at all. I’ve made my decision, and I’m in it with both feet.” [emphasis ours]
Only what Romney affects to condemn in his own father he embodies in his own person and character. See:
- Romney’s fatal indecision (i): the Hamlet of YouTube
- Romney’s fatal indecision (ii): Hamlet ponders his Mormism
- Romney’s fatal indecision (iii); Romney! Develop ONE lie, and stick with it!
- Romney abandons conservative line; reverts to previous line
- Romney tests different alibis for his flip-flopping
- Romney betrays supporters to the left and to the right
Conclusion: Rather than running away from his father, Romney has become his father.
And: What makes any of us think that Romney’s 15-minute old “conversion” to a quasi-conservative line will hold what with Romney’s unpredictable vacillations and consistent failure of nerve?—there is evidence from the stump that Romney has already walked away from it, if he ever really had it.
Oh, but by all means, make this troubled man our president!
