After watching the final presidential debate Monday night, I noticed the twitter-tweet banners go by on the bottom of the news channel.
I think I see what Mitt Romney’s plan is, but it seems he is confusing the rest of America.
What I think I see is a chameleon in a suit. Romney figured out in September the only way to look presidential is to emulate the president.
Since then he has denied every stance he dared stand on and every statement he dared state. He has become the most agreeable man ever born. Since then the only statement he stands behind, when confronted with his past utterances, is “That’s not true.”
The final debate was like watching President Obama talk to himself.
As rich as he is, I don’t think Romney has enough money to buy himself an original thought. If he is a puppet being run by puppet-masters, I think he has some broken strings.
In that debate, he was a flash-back to bygone presidents, as Obama pointed out. When he walked out and waved, I was reminded of Richard Nixon. I would not have been surprised to see him flash a peace sign. I fully expected to hear, “Let me make this perfectly clear.”
During all the debates, Romney pasted a father-knows-best smile on his face. He looked like he was watching a toddler tie his shoes for the first time. Ronald Reagan wore that same look.
Like Reagan, Romney couldn’t put his words in order or bring them to mind. I found myself trying to help out-loud. It was almost as annoying as watching George H. Bush nod endlessly to every person in the audience before completing his sentences.
By this time, after three debates, Romney has changed his colors like a chameleon and flip-flopped his opinions so many times that we have to wonder why. He’s trying to hide his true colors and reduce the campaign down to two colors.
If Romney agrees, as he claims, with everything that Obama says, what two colors are we left with? Black and White. So his sudden agreement with Obama was the elephant in the room, asking unspokenly, “Do you want a black or a white president?” Because suddenly, as the Chameleon
Romney would have it, that’s the only difference.
Well, if that’s true, then why do we need a new president?
Give Obama four more years to correct the Republican problems he inherited and has been working on. At least his thoughts are his own — no strings attached.
