Mitt Romney-What We Have Here is Failure to Apologize


"I am an unapologetic believer in the greatness of this country. I am not ashamed of American power. I take pride that throughout history our power has brought justice where there was tyranny, peace where there was conflict and hope where there was affliction and despair."-Mitt Romney
Does Mitt Romney understand that he lives in the era of camera phones, videotape and photoshop? You can't just say stuff and expect it to magically go away anymore.
Somebody is always in record mode on your ass.
The way Romney continually makes statements and takes stances and then revises them once he pulls his foot out of his mouth, makes me believe Dude is not the brightest bulb in the box and clearly does not understand 21st century technology.
I thought that honor went Sarah Palin, but maybe McCain was right to choose her over Mittens back in '08.
Mitt Romney says he believes in America, he told that to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, yesterday, but he's not willing to put his butt on the line to make it so. Nor is he willing to let his sons fight for their freedoms to be rich and well, useless.
He should have apologized to VFW convention for getting five deferments dating back to the Vietnam War. By the time he got the last deferment, Mitt said he was too busy doing other things to fight for his country, just like his silent but not so invisible mentor Dick “I have a new heart” Cheney.
Romney also said his sons, all five of em, had better things to do than to waste their time joining the military. Seems all they've ever done is watch Dad run for president, although one of them does speak Spanish and has cut a commercial or two, to convince Hispanics that Mitt gives a shit.
A real man of conviction would have stood his ground and defended his actions, like Muhammad Ali, aka Cassius Clay did in refusing to be drafted. Ali was willing to give up his way of life and freedom, a thought that has never, ever entered Romney's mind, let alone understand that he needed to apologize to the VFW.



Instead, like everything else, Romney just refuses to talk about his past actions or statements or stances. His reality is what is in front of him at the moment. It seems he believes that if he ignores it and doesn't talk about it, “it” will go away.
Do anything, say anything, just get elected.
Maybe Dude is a closeted Buddhist...permanently living in the present moment, yesterday is done and subject to revision, tomorrow is another day, still to be written.
Hope he's read the passages on Karma...
