Mitt Romney’s campaign strategist, Matt Rhoades, recently revealed the Republican candidate’s historical role model: James K. Polk, the president from 1845-1849.James K. Polk is famous -- okay, in 2012 we may be stretching the term "famous" for a one-termer that came between Jackson & Lincoln -- for a few things.
1. Starting a bogus and illegal war with Mexico
2. Almost starting a bogus and illegal war with England
3. All so that slavery would try to expand upon and hasten the coming of the Civil War.
...oh, and kicking the bucket a few months after he left office.
So in other words, what the modern world would call a War Criminal of the First Order. Plus, I'll be damned if I'm going to rename my place of residence to being in "Romney County".
