Rachel Maddow destroys Mitt Romney, why? (Update)

Last night, Rachel Maddow took her opening segment and simply roasted and toasted Mitt Romney. My question is why?

Mitt Romney is not a strong candidate. He has never been a strong candidate. The whole Republican field is weak. Each of the candidates has huge flaws. This is no secret. Anyone who’s been following the campaigns can, off the top of their head, name tons of flaws that each of these candidates has. Yet, for some reason, Rachel Maddow decided that she needed to shine the spotlight on Mitt Romney.

You do not have to be a political junkie, as I am, to be able to understand that Mitt Romney has changed his position on several major issues. The healthcare law that he instituted in Massachusetts is basically the same law that President Obama tried to institute across the United States. This is a fact. Yet, somehow Mitt Romney has tried to parse this into something that it isn’t. If you remember that whole brouhaha over whether Mitt Romney really hunts or not and what he hunts, well, that was craziness. That was not some tricky question. Instead, that was Mr. “I’m awkward” Romney just trying to fit in. He doesn’t. He’s uncomfortable in crowds. He’s uncomfortable talking in front of people. Yet, here he is, running for president.

I love Rachel Maddow. I think she is the brightest woman on television. I just don’t understand what is to be gained by telling liberals, her audience, that Mitt Romney is who we think he is. I’m just saying. Okay, Mitt Romney has proven over the last several years that he will do anything, say anything and be anybody in order to become president. Okay, now it’s out there.

Update: Yesterday on NPR they introduced a segment by asking the question, “How would President Romney handle Afghanistan?” What? President Romney? A chill went up my spine. Now, I understand what Rachel was talking about. Think about it. President Romney. He can’t settle on one position for anything. Even Clinton was better at standing firm than Romney. There is almost no subject in which Romney hasn’t changed his position in some sort of major way. So, Romney on Afghanistan? My goal is for us, the American people, not to go through a Romney presidency. The fact that he is talking about doubling down, no, tripling down on Afghanistan…doesn’t make any sense to me. We need to get out. We need to leave a force that is large enough to crush any terrorist camp or outpost that pops up. That’s it. We need to come home. I’m not sure what Romney’s position is and whatever it is I suspect that it will change… with the wind.

  1. I think some liberals previously thought Romney was moderate and not so bad.  I have since come to the conclusion that he is so extremely narcissistic that he is very dangerous.  Maddow’s piece helps those who did not understand his true nature.

    I previously rooted for Santorum thinking he would be a weaker candidate, and that may still be true.  But now I root for Santorum because I truely believe Romney would be a worse and more dangerous president.

  2. Rachel Maddow loves to listen to her own voice, a close second to former Keith Olbermann… YIKES….. who can possibly believe their far left news deliveries. She obviously hasn’t done her homework. Enough said.

  3. WEB – 

    I think it is safe to say that anyone who is on television in talks for a living, must actually like the sound of their own voice. That would include Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Keith Olbermann, Bill O’Reilly and hundreds of others. In your response, you basically said nothing.

    No, I don’t think so, “enough said” you really didn’t say anything.

    Do me a favor, next time you stop by, actually flesh out an argument. I’m happy to engage.
