Why Mitt's unfit for presidency

There are plenty of reasons why Mitt Romney should NOT be the next president of the United States.

Below is a partial list. It'll need updating anytime the Mitt-wit speaks.

No. 13: Mitt has been running for president for about 5 years now and most Americans have no idea who he really is. It's not sure even Mitt knows.

No. 12: He's completely out of touch with the average American. Putting a car elevator in your massively upsized home in tony La Jolla, Calif., during this Great Recession is a perverse way of saying, "I feel your pain."

No. 11: Mitt wants to shut down Planned Parenthood. Really? Why close a health clinic that doesn't rely on the federal government? And this from a guy who was pro-choice.

No. 10: Mitt changes his positions so often, from immigration to student loans, that his followers have been treated for whiplash. You've heard the joke: A liberal, a conservative and an independent walk into a bar. The bartender says, "Hi, Mitt."

No. 9: Mitt wants to kill the Affordable Care Act even though it is patterned after a health care plan that Mitt championed while governor of liberal Massachusetts. In fact, the individual mandate that everyone buy health insurance is a Republican brainstorm that emanated from conservative "think" tanks.

No. 8: Evidently a fan of Etch-A-Sketch, Mitt is now shaking the mechanical drawing toy so hard that all his ridiculously reactionary positions he adopted during the GOP primaries can be redrawn as centrist doodles. Extra credit: Etch-A-Sketch was invented by a Frenchman.

No. 7: Mitt 's background at Bain Capital is representative of all those swindlers who destroyed the worldwide economy and stole our retirement money. Then they laughed all the way to the Federal Reserve's vaults as they stuffed their pockets with our bailouts.

No. 6: He likes to "fire people." What he means is that he likes to fire American workers, who he thinks make too much money, and replace them with low-wage Chinese and Mexican workers.

No. 5: The Mitt-wit believes $370,000 is chump change, even though it is seven times the national median household income, because it's all he made in speaking fees in 2010 when his overall income was $42 million.

No. 4: "Corporations are people, my friend." In fact, Mitt is merely a walking, talking corporation, which makes him unlike other people. Unfortunately, he's not a job creator.

No. 3: "I'm not concerned about the very poor," Romney said in a Feb. 1 interview. "We have a safety net there." Of course, that safety net was stolen by the wizards of Wall Street. Mitt says so many stupid things that his loose lips could actually sink ships if he were commander in chief.

No. 2: "Let Detroit go bankrupt," was the headline of Mitt's op-ed piece in the New York Times.
Evidently, bailing out the auto companies and saving an estimated 1.4 million jobs was a bad idea. Who knew?

No. 1: Mitt doesn't really believe in America. His financial worth is estimated at $250 million, yet the artful tax dodger stashes money around the world, including the Cayman Islands, in order to avoid paying his fair share of taxes to pay for our military that protects the Mitt-wit's ability to make millions while most Americans struggle. "I pay all the taxes that are legally required and not a dollar more,” Mitt said during a GOP debate. It's one thing for the garden-variety multi-millionaire to conceal his wealth in off-shore tax havens, but it's disgusting when a would-be president essentially says, "I hide my money and so can you." That is not a leader, that is a sleaze-bag.
