Yes friends, the Mittster is playing the expectations game. Now, rather than simply claiming the mantle of Ronald Reagan reincarnated, he’s referring to himself as Underdog. Try has-been or also-ran. Those sound good too.
Mitt Romney declared for the first time publicly that he is the underdog to his rival, Mike Huckabee, at this point in Iowa’s fast-approaching Republican caucuses on Jan. 3.
Most underdogs don’t exactly spend millions more than their rival, but perhaps there’s a new meaning to the word “underdog” that I am not familiar with. This would be like Rocky Balboa claiming to be the underdog in a fight with a little old lady with a walker. But when it comes to OvenMitt, insanity reigns.
I can only imagine that the feisty little upstart Ron Paul bristled at the “underdog” comment. But then, as far as the Ron Paul Revolution goes, that dog won’t hunt.
