Magic Mitt

As you might expect one of the awesome things about the Mitt Romney non-sex Tape is its incredible logical inconsistency. My favorite contradictions:
The president's foreign policy, in my opinion, is formed in part by a perception he has that his magnetism, and his charm, and his persuasiveness is so compelling that he can sit down with people like Putin and Chavez and Ahmadinejad and that they'll find that we're such wonderful people that they'll go on with us, and they'll stop doing bad things. And it's an extraordinarily naive perception.
Yes, it is naive of Obama to think he has a "magical" effect on foreign leaders -- it's like he can shoot fiery death from the sky without any moral compunction. How unrealistic. Romney doesn't believe in that magic transforming bullshit.
"My own view is that if we win on November 6th, there will be a great deal of optimism about the future of this country. We'll see capital come back and we'll see — without actually doing anything — we'll actually get a boost in the economy."
See, completely rational.

Well, yes, true, Rmoney's election would signal that the casino is open for business in a big way.

Not so much a boost to the economy, as much as whistling, "I'm forever blowing bubbles...."

Giving the fatcats yet another opportunity to strip even more cash and assets from the real economy. Why else would they be pumping millions at a crack into his campaign?

Obama is employing air assaults, drone attacks and assassination squads around the world in the name of national security, when the greatest threat to national security is Wall Street and corporate America, and Rmoney's election will, once and for all, prove that true.
