Romney is now a fish out of water, flopping and gasping for breath.

America's Trust Fund Bully (tm) has lived a life of privilege, always getting his way because first daddy had money and power, then he had money and power. His world contained just two well-defined groups of people - co-conspirator sycophants, and small prey that could be dispatched in a flash using his power, money and connections.

Now he's facing a trained pugilist. One who's got some ring experience with big boys who punch. Punch hard. Folks like Hillary Clinton (Yikes!).

I'm sure that Romney's never had to deal with a solid right hook followed by a flurry of good jabs, and he clearly cannot take a punch. He's been looking distinctly rudderless for the past two weeks, a big "WTF!" is formed on his plaintive visage. The Chicago gang sure knows how to punch when it's about the thing closest to Obama - that is, of course, Obama himself. Romney is dazed, confused, and furious at the insolence. He's jumping about throwing wild, angry shots, which opens him up to more body blows. And they are coming, coming.

Great stuff!

But Romney's a fiendishly smart guy and loaded up with the 99%'s lunch money that he's made a career of stealing. He'll be purchasing lessons in the sweet science from folks like Karl Rove, the Angelo Dundee of the Dark Side. He'll be back with some (undoubtedly clumsy) footwork of his own, and perhaps a few punches. But boxing is not a sport that is easily learned, and it requires a patience and willingness to learn that Romney ain't got. I don't think this will go well for him.

Good luck to the President in kicking this predator's ass.

2. This is a good line and it's true

Unlike McCain, Romney is quite smart, and a good dramatic story needs an agile, fiendishly evil villain so this should be epic!

3. Willard is a liar, fraud, and one scary dude because he is so out of touch

with the common people. He will loot this country like he has to the companies he raped.

4. Mitt is a lightweight who never was able to over come his weakness...How he was able to

be the GOPers Nom is a story in itself.

The mainline GOPers did not want to waste time and $$ chasing Obama...

So they let this dude in so he can waste his own $$....

5. He reminds me of Darrell Issa, Mitt does.

Mitt has this belief that he can buy the presidency.

Issa believed he could buy the governorship by buying a recall. Then a bigger bully (Ahhhnuld) came and took away HIS lunch money.

Darrell was left, sobbing and snuffling, and a million dollars and change poorer...

7. He's a stone cold mormon asshole who couldn't give a shit

about "gentiles". Nobody is talking about this but it's a fact when it comes to mormons at that level.
He's got the full attitude, he knows he's above everybody and we are all here to serve his zombie ass.

15. He can be president of the planet Kolob

He can be president of the planet Kolob.

While I've met a lot of Mormons and the truth be told, among my fellow Christians, the Mormons seem to have it together. However, if you look into their religion, they are chained to their temple, it's like they are allowed to work to pay their tithe (10% and they keep track) and then they have to spend the rest of their time in temple activities.

They do think they are on top but it seems to me to be a pyramid scheme where they need more and more people to keep it going.

12. Unfortunately, no one with Romney's level of campaign money can be so readily dismissed.

I agree with most of what you say, but I fear that, in the context of contemporary American politics, you're underestimating the impact of the money. Hundreds of millions of dollars will be brought to bear by Romney -- or, pardon me, brought to bear on Romney's behalf, because most of it will be "independent" expenditures that of course have nothing to do with the Romney campaign.
