In a manner reminiscent of former President George Bush's unmeritously praising of then FEMA director Scott Brown during Katrina, the Republican Party's presidential candidate, the Mormon bishop from the state of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney, has lavished praises on his beleaguered presidential campaign, calling it very effective. Icheoku decries this assessment as one of those calls which Mitt Romney makes without a full and complete real appraisal of the situation on the ground. Any independent observer and watchers alike, who have followed the many potholes the Mitt Romney's campaign have struggled to dig themselves out of these past weeks, would agree that the Mitt over-exaggerated and over-compensated his campaign when he called it "very effective." Americans know what the real deal with the Romney's campaign is; and only a less truthful assessor would, taking all that have transpired with the campaign during the week just ended into consideration, still go forth to term it as very positive.
Icheoku is an ardent supporter of President Obama and anything the other side says or does that would continue to highlight their many negatives on why they should not be elected, including not being truthful with Americans, makes my day. However on the occasion of Mitt Romney wrongly assessing the parlous state of his campaign or being completely in denial of the real situation on the ground, gives us cause to ponder if Mitt Romney actually lives in a reality-tinged world or he just have his own world where reality means a different thing.
Anyway, any follower of his lackluster campaign so far would agree that the Mitt is not "human" as his pronouncements, actions and mannerisms has not met that expectations required of a man running for the highest office in our land and who truly desires to be elected as our president. From his self-acclaimed "acute conservative" tag, to his 'I don't really care about the poor of the society,' to his refusal to release his tax records, to his choosing of extremist fundamentalist Paul Ryan as his vice presidential candidate, to his refusing to run on his record as Massachusetts governor, to his unending flip-flops on issues and to his latest and craziest "47%" comment, one is forced to think that this Mitt is not deep enough to be president. When his gaffes on foreign relations is factored in, then America has waiting to be their president, a man who would plunge the country into further and unending hostilities with the rest of the world.
The solution is simple, his candidacy MUST BE REJECTED as too toxic for America. No more wars, no more over-heating the world polity, no more irrational foreign policy initiatives, no more gloom and doom for Americans as well as the rest of the world.
Until November, despite Romney's claim that he is 'got a very effective campaign which is doing a very good job and doesn't need a turnaround,' Icheoku is not in a position to correctly decode the type of campaign being ran by Team-Romney; but suffice it to say that it is closer to Peggy Noonan assessment of "a rolling calamity". This also begs the question, did Mitt Romney personally run Bain Capital or he did it by proxy otherwise why are those alleged successes of Bain capital not being replicated and resonated in his presidential campaign which for most part has entered an ICU. But Mitt Romney lives in a different world and probably is seeing it from the perspective of a mediocre who reached thus far, defeating other more conservative Republicans to emerge as the presidential candidate of the Republican Party and might be satisfied with simply wearing the badge of the 2012 Republican Party presidential candidate. Only time will tell.
