Gotta agree with The Looking Spoon and his description of Newsweek. Attention seeking whores:
Wasn’t it just six months ago that Newsweek dressed Romney up like Spartacus?
Of course that was when the polls didn’t look too bad for Obama. Polls look grim, so Newsweek to the rescue!
Apparently they don’t like the fact that he has made a few gaffes and then apologized if need be, and vice versa.
“He’s kind of lame, and he’s really … annoying. He keeps saying these … things, these incredibly off-key things. Then he apologizes immediately—with all the sincerity of a hostage. Or maybe he doesn’t: sometimes he whines about the subsequent attacks on him. But the one thing he never does? Man up, double down, take his lumps.”
Naw…doesn’t sound like a biased article there eh?
But man up, double down and take his lumps? Obama has done this?
He backed the bus up over Wright, Ayers, hell…even his own family instead of taking his lumps and manning up. He allowed Bill Clinton to take over HIS press conference because…he is manly?
When it was politically expedient to do so he didn’t support gay marriage…then he did.
He is soooo manly that he refuses to discuss HIS economy. Either blaming Bush or blaming Europe, or pretending everything is just fine. Bush, Europe and all the rest are to blame for the GDP being 1.5%. Consumer spending being down, factory orders being down, unemployment through the roof.
He is soooo manly, soooo willing to take his lumps he refuses to call for an independent investigation of the leaks coming out of the White House.
What this really does come down to is that Romney isn’t a politically superstar. He’s boring, has no skeletons in his closet, and a proven competent leader.
Romney is more about competence while Obama is about being popular.
Obama is only good at one thing, campaigning.
That’s more manly?
Wimp = Someone who tells ‘Joe The Plumber’ that spreading the wealth around is a good thing and then denies that’s what he meant.
Wimp – Someone who tells business owners that they didn’t build that business on their own and then denies saying it
Wimp = “Someone who refuses to be accountable”
Obama checkmarks all the wimp boxes when it comes down to it.
