The Economist, not exactly a left wing publication, although I’m sure it will soon be attacked as such by the Scream Machine (Fox, Rush,Drudge et al), pretty much nails The Man Who Would Be President But Would Just As Soon Not Talk About It Because ‘You People’ Have already Learned Enough And Should Just Know Your Place And Trust Him:
[C]ompetence is worthless without direction and, frankly, character. Would that Candidate Romney had indeed presented himself as a solid chief executive who got things done. Instead he has appeared as a fawning PR man, apparently willing to do or say just about anything to get elected. In some areas, notably social policy and foreign affairs, the result is that he is now committed to needlessly extreme or dangerous courses that he may not actually believe in but will find hard to drop; in others, especially to do with the economy, the lack of details means that some attractive-sounding headline policies prove meaningless (and possibly dangerous) on closer inspection. Behind all this sits the worrying idea of a man who does not really know his own mind.
Those damned Brits. Don’t they know how embarrassing telling the truth is to our Liberal Media Elite? I am pretty sure David Gregory and whoever shows up at Meet The Press tomorrow AM (you can never go wrong betting on John McCain) will paint an entirely different picture of The Mittster. Or let GOP hacks do so with nary a challenge.
