The Romney Method

We've all met people who could look us right in the eye, smile, and lie their asses off.

Usually they are trying to sell us something defective--snake oil or a used car or land in Arizona--and not running for the presidency of the United States.

But that, in a nutshell, is Willard Mitt Romney.

He will say whatever he thinks you want to hear, regardless of the facts.

Indeed, facts are completely fungible things in his hands.

If a previous statement becomes inconvenient, he will then deny that he ever said it.

Indeed, he will claim that you said it.

He will do this all with a twinkle in his eye, a smile and a firm handshake.

His one overriding purpose is to close the sale.

Maybe a country enraptured by "reality" TV and Faux News, a country that forgets--or never learned--those parts of its history that don't follow the phony, Tea Party narrative, deserves a smiler with a knife as Commander in Chief.

But, my God, has it come to this?
