Prediction: in the next 72 hours Romney will make a scripted courageous statement at a town hall mtg


Romney is the guy who never stood up an challenged anything. Not his Church, his country, his party.

Now a two bit radio jockey and addle brained Republican nutjob have exposed Romney for the truly shallow gutless ass he really is.

McCain didn't just stand up to a few nutjobs at a town hall meeting he refused to leave the Hanoi Hilton ahead of the others even though his health was ebbing and he might not have meant it. When Cindy came home with a Bangladeshi daughter McCain adopted her sight unseen.

You cannot imagine Romney doing anything like that. The unremarked strange part of the Seamus story actually was the mentality of a father that would plan only 2 pit stops for 5 boys for a 12 hour drive.

So as the country is beginning to see that Romney may be Nominee in modern history most unsuited to be Commander in Chief because he is completely and totally gutless I predict that the campaign will:

Within the next three days expect to see somebody at a town hall event say something not just beyond the pale but completely insane. Ideally it won't even mention the President's name but be an assault on Democrats in general. Something along the lines of "Don't you agree that all Democrats are Communists?"

Then by script Romney will put his palms up and do his best Ronald Reagen impression "Whoa there, let's just hold up there for a minute. We may disagree with them and their policies may be 100% wrong for this great American but not ALL Democrats are communists."

Then cue the idiot squad of Romney surrogates praising the brave courage of Romney, his 'Sister Souljah' movement and a wave of nauseous contrived bullshit about how Romney defends Democrats and will bring this country together.


The MSM will slap him on the back, David Gregory will pronounce him vetted and ready to command the United States Armed Forces.

You know they are writing the script and finding a patsy for the town hall. There will be a few run thrus and then it will be coming to a town hall meeting in the next few days.

1. The far right would never forgive him.

Either he thinks Democrats should be sold to zoos for meat or he's a traitor and a liberal commie RINO.

3. that's why it has to be scripted just right


"Don't forget friends that there some of those in the military who have died for this country are Democrats:.

What is the idiotic far right going to do?

Vote for an African American?

4. Not Sure They Have The Nerve For It, Sir

His people know his only hope is the 'lynch that n****r in our White House' vote, and his people also know that those voters do not really view him as 'one of us'. Such a staged moment would genuinely offend many of these voters, who would view it as rejection, and as proof he is 'really' no different from the rest of the liberals who defend that 'Kenyan traitor'. His people will fear such a scene would cost him many more votes than it might gain.

6. Prediction: Romney won't dare...

Tonight, a "reasonable", "sane" conservative will go down to defeat at the hands of a Tea Party kook. Romney will get the message that any challenge to their opinions will be at his parallel.

And, no, I don't believe in conspiracy theories. If I did, I'd wonder why this grand conspiracy hasn't been able to rescue Mittens from himself before now.

7. I considered that scenario....

but I'm not so sure he'll take the chance of alienating those who regularly exchange emails that claim Obama is a socialist Muslim from Kenya. He needs every vote he can get, and he won't want to make the RWNJs decide to stay home on election day. To the Freeps, a profile in courage is standing with the birthers and racists.

I actually considered what it would be like for a plant to pose such a direct question and watch him squirm to please the base without coming out and saying he agrees with the nut cases. His party got him into this mess, and they can't get him out.

Remember, Romney is fighting a RINO label as it is.

8. I agree 100% with the OP. They have to find something

no matter how trite, that he could be seen as standing up to. It will probably be something much less toxic than standing up for democrats or Obama. But they will stage something. The problem is he will flub even a staged event.
