This man is a lout. A shameless lout, who, among the supposed privacy of close supporters, reveals tellingly that he can conceive of no idea larger than self-interest. As he believes only in Mitt Romney and his ambitions, he can’t conceive that others would believe in anything larger than themselves or their possible personal gain. He stands here, now, his own emptiness laid bare by his own cynical critique of others who will not follow him in selfishness. It is not that Mr. Romney is merely unfit to serve us as president. Based on this latest revelation, it may go much deeper. He may well be unfit to serve us as a fellow citizen.
David Simon, railing on Mitt Romney for failing to contribute as a citizen to a healthy America. Simon continues: Romney’s so mired in self-interest, he’s incapable of comprehending a citizenship that believes in caring for others and sharing success and wealth, to ensure healthcare, food, and shelter.
It’s shameful this kind of politic has permeated the Republican party. And it’s irresponsible of anyone to support, condone, or propagate this Republican government’s economic and social policies, proven time and again to fail, to drive America toward oblivion.
I can only hope, for the sake of the good and the poor in America, that this lousy and destructive human being is left in the dust at the polls. Astonishingly, there is more opportunity for harm here than I could have imagined with Bush. America needs balance in its two leading parties; it needs to send a message to the Republicans that doubling down on insanity is not the way.
