Is Mitt Romney Human?

Filed under: Mitt Romney,RINOs — Psycheout @ 10:01 pm

Ask Mitt NothingI’m not in a position where I can interview Mitt Romney so I’ll have to make do with accounts of those who have. Jon Ralston had a chance to sit down with Mittens and his perspective is interesting and confirms what many of us have long suspected.

Mitt Romney is virtually unflappable, doesn’t reveal too much and seems effortlessly articulate. He is genial without being smarmy, glib without seeming shallow, and dexterous without seeming calculating.

Those are all good qualities to have in a president, and he seems as presidential as anyone I have interviewed. He also may be the scariest.

Huh? Read on.

You hear politicians described as “smooth” all the time. “Silky” is the frequent adjectival addition to enhance the cliche. Romney is so silky smooth that you interview him for a half-hour and you wonder afterward whether you were even there, as if he just slid by you – yes, smoothly, without much effort and looking coolly presidential doing it.

He’ll apparently say anything while actually saying nothing at all. Remember Bill Clinton?

Romney’s duality, which has been caricatured as flip-flopping and praised as evolution, surely is troublesome for the contender. The seriousness behind Stewart’s question – is this guy for real or is he a hologram of a candidate? – will become central to whether he can get the nomination and win a general election.

Jon goes on to summarize the interview and how slippery his answers were. It’s disturbing to say the least. Jon closes with this:

Even caught off-guard, he handled that fairly well, just as he seamlessly dodged (even when pressed) my question about whether George W. Bush has been a great president.

We also discussed Romney’s Mormonism, which caused him to launch into a soliloquy on secular leadership and religious influences. Indeed, he ultimately struck me as many LDS politicians here have – deliberate, modulated and opaque.

Scarily, and effectively, opaque.

Read the whole thing. And then ask yourself: “Is Mitt Romney human?” Does anybody knows where this man stands on anything, or do his supporters merely think he agrees with them? He takes so many sides of any given issue that everyone could find something to agree with. Only Mitt Romney knows where he stands or rather if he stands for anything at all, other than for himself.

So, is Mitt Romney human?

Update: See also The Many Faces of Mitt Romney.

I’m astounded. I don’t know how else to say it. I just continue to be amazed at the number of Republicans who are so easily conned, duped and hoodwinked by Willard Mitt Romney.

Update 2: If you love flipping and flopping and flopping and flipping, see Mitt Romney Watch: Mitt Flips on Abortion Again.  Summary – 1994: pro-choice; 2001: not pro-choice; 2002: pro-choice again; 2004: pro-life; 2005: pro-choice; 2007: “effectively pro-choice”; 2007: “always for life.”  Dizzy yet?

Conclusion: Mitt Romney is a dolphin.

  1. As an aside, according to Rasmussen, Mitt’s negative ratings are worse than Hillary’s. And we all know she’s not human!

  2. You think maybe it had to do with beating his dog, or claiming his sons are braver than our soldiers?

  3. Mitt Romney bases his behavior on one of those cylons from the planet Kolob in that mormon tv show.

  4. Perhaps Mitt Romney is a cyborg, sent back in time by 23rd century India to destroy America. That makes about as much sense as his moonbat RINO policies do, anyway.

  5. Given Mitt’s desire to fly off in a spaceship with all of his wives I have to question whether or not he is a genuine homo sapien or not.

  6. I think he is human. You see, I don´t believe in Ghosts, Demons or Aliens (and robots are not as far developed as that either), so what´s left?

    And we all know she’s not human!

    As demons, aliens and ghosts don´t exist, what is she, if not human.

    Mitt Romney bases his behavior on one of those cylons from the planet Kolob in that mormon tv show.

    You mean Battlestar Galactica? What´s mormon about that show? It´s actually a quite good remake of that decade old series, introducing a few nice, new twists into the story.

    @PSycheout: India can time travel in a mere 200 years? Now that´d be a surprise, given that time travel isn´t even theoretically possible from a scientific standpoint.

  7. PG:

    “Theoretically possible?”
    “Scientific standpoint?”

    Get your anti-religious psycho-babble away from our blog. The proper question to be asking is, “Why would God permit those idolators the divine luxury of time travel?”

    I´m no religious specialist. I just pointed oput that even evil science won´t allow it.

  10. I’m sure glad all the religion bigots are supporting Brownback. Makes me want to support him less, and Romney more.

    Battlestar Galactica is pretty heavily based on the Book of Mormon.

  12. I allow my neighbors to leave there lawn 12 inches high while I mow my lawn at 3 inches. Should I let mine go to twelve or force them to cut to three?
    Which length am I in favor of? Personally I have my choice. Mitt Romney said he would let the Mass. law stand and he did which is effectively pro choice but in reality he stood on the side of pro life on legislation that crossed his desk but kept his word on leaving the law alone. Trust and integrity. Now for the anti discrimination and pro marriage issue. And they are two different issues. he believes in both as do I. Thank you. Any difficulty in understanding this? NO.

  13. I find the anti-Mormon propaganda in this article very distasteful. I’m starting to lean more towards Romney now. All this time I thought that he was a liberal and come to find out, people have just been twisting his words. As I learn more about him I see what has been going on here. He seems very solid, honest, and conservative, even in the most liberal state in America. If the worst thing about him is that he’s “too perfect,” I’ll gladly take that. Brownback Campaign, I think that you’ve just lost one of your supporters.
