GOP Sideshow: Nevada Caucus
" The needs of the poor must take priority over the desires of the rich and the rights of the worker over the maximization of profit."
John Paul II
The Romney camp wasted little time to go back on defense after a much anticipated win in the Florida Primary. Before the caviar reached room temperature, Mitt misspoke when attempting to explain his message regarding the plight of the poor. I would suggest this candidate’s incessant compulsion of self-destructive commentary reveals the truth behind the mask of Willard Mitt Romney.
In what can only be viewed, as adding to the best of sound bites of the Romney run for presidency, Mitt’s tongue tripped over his wallet once again. In his attempt to be viewed as; other than the 1% candidate, he succeeded entrenching himself as the out of touch candidate. While searching to find his voice to the masses he exposed his Achilles heal by shooting himself in the foot.
Newt Gingrich wasted little time before capitalizing on the latest Romney “I am not concerned about the poor” gaff. The thing about gaff’s are, they have a tendency toward unveiling the man behind the curtain. Newt’s response to the Romney walk back of the safety net for the poor was his trampoline premise to raise the poor up.
The suspect Romney camp has been under fire for taking credit for the short-lived victory in Florida, describing their candidate as an empty shirt behind the brilliance of his advisors. The credulity of this enlightenment takes on greater significance upon the timing of kissing the ring of Kingmaker Donald Trump in a Vegas Casino hotel. By doing so, essentially he has aligned himself with the personification of Americana elitism.
In the meantime, President Obama is quietly campaigning using the populace movement and his bully pulpit to gain support for his base and independents voters. The President let his fellow Americans know of his opponent’s latest antics by providing a video link in a recent tweet.
Here a look into the upcoming week’s events:
This can only be seen as reaching new heights in the hypocrisy of the Romney camp and the Donald. If you recall, Trump had unfavorable words calling Romney a loser in previous statements. The old adage of no such thing as negative publicity will truly be held as a fallacy given this latest choice of the Romney campaign.
