Romney lashes out at his father for indecision even as Romney himself vacillates wildly

Blast from our past:

“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

Romney continues:

“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:

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!

yours &c.

    […] Also, Geraghty, you seem to miss what is most painfully obvious—and our method here is to look for the obvious—about this father and son drama getting played out at the expense of the GOP. Romney in his hedging and equivocating is not reacting against what happened to his father—per contra!—Romney has appropriated the hedging, equivocating, and vacillating of his father. This is a theme we developed weeks ago when we noted how Romney himself lashed out at his father even as he appropriated his father’s behaviors: Romney lashes out at his father for indecision even as Romney himself vacillates wildly […]
