When I heard of Mitt Romney’s failure to recall cutting off a boy’s hair while his friends held the boy down it reminded me of the line from “Far and Away”, “I’ve burned many houses in the line of duty. Am I meant to remember yours?” On the other hand, Romney also fails to remember any position he took in the past if it conflicts with a position he holds in the present. While criticizing President Obama for his evolved attitude toward Gay Marriage, Romney claims to have been consistent, but the truth is, Romney’s views have also “evolved“.
Coupling Romney’s failure to recall what some would consider a pretty memorable experience and his failure to recall his own statements and positions, it almost seems as if his problem is memory blackouts rather than dishonesty. But there’s much more evidence to suggest dishonesty, including is Swiss bank account.
I believe that people can improve and I believe in second chances. But I don’t see much improvement in Mitt Romney. He will say and do whatever he thinks will best accomplish his goals, whether it’s lying, flip-flopping on policy issues, or torturing fem-boys, and if he’s elected he will continue to pander to whomever he thinks will help him increase his own wealth and power. I don’t think we can count on him pandering to the middle class or people struggling to find work.
