Gutless Romney Ventures Outside the Fox Bubble and Bombs

June 17, 2012 at 5:28 PM Leave a comment

Mitt Romney appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer today.  Though Schieffer treated him with kid gloves, Romney essentially refused to answer some big questions.

Here are two articles about that:

PoliticusUSA:  Shades of Sarah Palin as Mitt Romney Bombs On Face The Nation

At times Romney’s babbles and dodges reminded one of another Republican candidate who avoided the mainstream media at all costs, but unlike Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin actually had more broadcast interviews early in her campaign than Mitt Romney has. By design, Romney has been more sheltered from the mainstream press than Sarah Palin was in the early fall of 2008.

One look at Romney on Face The Nation was all it took to explain why. Romney doesn’t possess Palin’s happy ignorance, but he shares with her an inability to give a straight answer and a genuine lack of substance.

Obama put a bullet in Bin Laden’s brain. Romney can’t tell us if he will repeal the new immigration policy, or what tax deductions he will eliminate without talking to Congress first.

Politico:   Mitt Romney Dodges Immigration Questions, Calls W.H. Move ‘Political’

Mitt Romney criticized how President Barack Obama changed immigration policy — but not the policy itself — in a rare non-Fox News national TV interview broadcast Sunday.

Romney declined five times to tell Schieffer whether he would conduct the same policy Obama announced Friday that the Department of Homeland Security will pursue.
Several states key to the president’s reelection effort — Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina, Virginia and Iowa — have large and growing Hispanic populations. And that’s not even counting Florida.
Romney can’t dodge this question forever but on the other hand, he’s already answered it.  The media should hold him to it:
On the snarky side, I love how he’s boxed himself in.  He pandered to the Tea Party during the primary and now that he needs Latino voters he hemming and hawing. The man has no guts and no core.  Is this a case of him being against it before he’s for it?
