All part of the plan

Another series of days another series of bizarre and patently insincere statements from Mitt Romney.
“I know what it’s like to worry whether you’re gonna get fired,” he told about 600 people in an Opera House here. “There were a couple of times I wondered whether I was going to get a pink slip."
Yeah, uh-huh. Or this:
The super PAC supporting Mitt Romney blanketed Iowa with millions of dollars in negative campaign ads aimed at Newt Gingrich...But don’t ask Romney about ‘em: said he’s never seen the ads — right before he said he’s seen one and described its content.
Or this:
Early in the debate, Rick Santorum pressed Romney on why he hadn't run for re-election in 2006, when his first term as Governor expired. Romney suggested it was because politics isn't his calling...This is, as Newt Gingrich pointed out, ridiculous. Romney left the governor's office for a presidential campaign that hasn't stopped since.
Even in a profession famous for its insincerity Romney stands as a gigantic fake. Nobody believes a word he says, especially Mitt Romney. And in a year where the Right-wing and its wide-ranging need for paranoid screeching predominates the GOP process, being the biggest fake in politics actually is an advantage.

Restore Our Failure will buy this election fair and square, no matter how much it costs.

Joseph Heller of "Catch 22" fame inadvertently described Romney and the rest of the GOP field thusly:

" a group of otherwise undistinguished men, he (Major Major) was somehow more undistinguished than all the others...."

"Then I remembered Bain was going to pay me a shitload of money forever even after I stopped working there. That's the deal everyone gets when their job goes away, right?"
