Mitt Isn’t an American

I know I should be elated — the election is over, and Mitt is going to lose.  Really, where does he go from here?  What can he possibly say?

But instead I find myself weepy.  My first response to the 47% video was shock followed by anger and now I can’t think about it without crying.

This is such a sad moment in our history.  I can’t recall another presidential campaign when one of the major-party candidates showed such basic and bizarre ignorance of the country he sought to lead.

In some ways, this is worse than Sarah Palin.  She didn’t know anything about American policy.  Mitt doesn’t know anything about the American people.  This man without a core truly doesn’t get who are, how we think, and what we feel at our core.

After the election, Mitt will have a lot of free time.  Ann should strap him to the roof of the car, and they should drive across the country, so that Mitt can listen to us.  Not give speeches and shake hands on a rope line with an insincere “Nice to see you,” but sit down with us and hear our stories and learn something they apparently didn’t teach him at Cranbrook, Stanford, BYU, or Harvard.

Mitt will never be president, thank God, but it isn’t too late for him to become an American.

    This is what happens when a hollow man allows himself to be filled with whatever poison he thinks will advance his ambition. It’s the culmination of a disgrace that’s been pervasive in the GOP since Bush v Gore.

    Do you think this will get the vote out – or the opposite – where people assume no one would vote for him.

    The positive side of this is that it has made people reconnect with what is the nations core beliefs.

    Do you really think he can’t weasel out of this hole?

    Apparently Peggy Noon is calling for an intervention . . . . I feel your pain and misery.
