Can Mitt get a break?

Not really.

He's had enough breaks in life that it appears he's used them all up.

But, at least Randy Newman is thinking and singing of Mitt. (Play the "I'm Dreaming" video above)

Thanks to his recent stumbles, Mitt can't get out of his own way.

He got no bounce from the GOP convention.

His comments about the murder of Americans in Libya, including our ambassador, were ill-timed.

And, of course there was the revealing video where Mitt, talking about the 47 percent he claims are moochers, said, "my job is not to worry about those people."

The political "gaffe" has been renamed the "Mitt-wit."

Even the Republican cognoscenti, including Peggy Noonan, are wondering what's with Mitt.

Mitt's Intrade numbers are cratering. Romney trails Obama roughly 68 percent to 32 percent.

Plus, Mitt's polling numbers in Massachusetts, a state he once governed, predict an epic beatdown by about 20 points. It seems the good people of the Bay State know something about Mitt that the rest of Americans apparently do not. Mitt is only trailing President Obama by 5 points nationally in the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll.

Still, the election is seven weeks away and there is still time for Mitt to get further behind.

Mitt's clearly not up to the task. Let's just hold the election now and get it over with.

  1. Mitt doesn't need a break. He's got the economy.
