Thanks to his cadre of talented campaign advisors, Mitt Romney has allowed us to see the man behind the curtain, revealing himself for what he truly is…an empty suit with an etch-a-sketch. Substance doesn’t matter and words are easily rewritten to match the sentiments of the constituency of the moment. The opinions and needs of the electorate certainly don’t matter. Just package your into an attractive, or at least palatable wrapping and the content becomes irrelevant. ”I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign…its almost like an etch-a-sketch. You can shake it up and start all over.” Sadly, that pretty much sum it up.
In a perverted way, perhaps we owe the Romney campaign a debt of gratitude for being honest enough to tell us the truth. The needs and priorities of “we the people” ceased to be of any concern to Washington insiders years ago. The Romney campaign is simply honest enough to dispense with any pretense.
At the end of the day, the etch-a-sketch with an empty suit is a pathetic metaphor for what our representative government has become.
