I’ve been giggling over this discovery by our friends at Buzzfeed for a couple of hours now. I’m not sure I’d be willing to call this a full-blown Google problem yet, ala Rick Santorum, but it’s funny as hell.
And it’s all because Mitt Romney is suddenly going around agreeing with everyone about everything and naturally he’s getting away with it. Whatever you want to hear, folks, he’ll tell you, as he’s now everything to everyone — he’s RoboRomney!
The Onion brilliantly satirized this on Monday…
For weeks many Beltway insiders had written off the Romney campaign as dead, saying the candidate had dug himself into too deep a hole with too little time to recover. However, with a month to go before ballots are cast, Romney has pulled even with President Obama, and the former Massachusetts governor credits his rejuvenated campaign to one, singular tactic: lying a lot.
“I’m lying a lot more, and my lies are far more egregious than they’ve ever been,” a smiling Romney told reporters while sitting in the back of his campaign bus, adding that when faced with a choice to either lie or tell the truth, he will more than likely lie. “It’s a strategy that works because when I lie, I’m essentially telling people what they want to hear, and people really like hearing things they want to hear. Even if they sort of know that nothing I’m saying is true.”
Obama only has himself to blame, since he also let Romney get away with it at the first debate and everything starts at the top.
