Mitt Romney is a CRAVEN. It really is all you need to know about him.
If you wish to know what Mitt will say or do in any situation or when faced with any challenge, all you have to do is ask WWACD (What Would A Craven Do) and you’ll have your answer.
A woman calls President Obama a “monster” and Mitt is unable to confront her. The best he can manage is to meekly comment that “That’s Not The Term I Would Use…” though his weird nervous laugh. He is afraid of her. He let’s her talk over him and leaves folks watching the clip with the impression that he saw nothing wrong with her comment. His response is a straight up craven move. No surprise. It is the same response he has for all Birthers, racists and crazies attracted to his campaign because they HATE President Obama. There is nothing any of these folks can say that Mitt would clearly condemn. The best he might do is like he did with the “Monster” comment and hope that his deflection accompanied by nervous laughter will be spun as “courage” by a lazy press hoping to keep the horse race competative.
The WWACD standard will accurately predict Romney’s behavior every time something like this comes up.
The same is true with his reaction to his tax returns. Of course he wants to keep them hidden and will not release them. WWACD.
The same is true with selectively editing the words of President Obama to make him appear to say something he never actually said. No honesty in that, but WWACD.
The same is true with his inability to sit down and be interviewed by journalists and/or folks who might put him to the question. Barack Obama sat down with Bill O’Reilly, but do you think Mitt would sit down with Rachel Maddow? Ask yourself WWACD and you’ll know the answer.
Romney is a Craven. His bluster about his retroactive retirement daze is like the Cowardly Lion just before Dorothy slaps him. And his reaction to the Obama Campaign slapping him over Bain is quite similar to the way the CL acted post the little girl’s slap.
Domestically Mitt will do whatever the crazies tell him to do and on the global stage Putin (or any world leader) will have Mitt in a fitted collar and on his back in minutes.
What could possibly go wrong if such a Craven was President…
