The Real Mitt Wants to Be “Unzipped” Is “Waiting To Come Out”


Apparently former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is a lot like Minnesota weather — if you don’t like what he’s saying right now, just wait a few minutes.  It’s a claim that sent many in his campaign scrambling, hoping he wouldn’t be dubbed the “etch a sketch candidate.” But now his own backers are agreeing with it.

Case in point, his problem relating to women voters.  The polls have shown them flocking to President Barack Obama, unimpressed by Romney’s stances on health care, birth control, abortion or taxes.  But Romney’s surrogates are convinced that given time, he can win them back.

He just has to change out of “primary Romney” that needs to attract conservative and religious voters, and put on his “general election Romney” veneer that plays moderate and panders to women instead.

Romney’s campaign chair in Maryland is telling voters that they just have to wait until this primary is done if they want to see the “real Romney.”  According to Think Progress, “[Bob] Ehrlich said that once women ‘see’ Romney’s ‘real views,’ the gender gap between him and President Obama would dissipate.”

Even New Hampshire Senator and Romney backer Kelly Ayotte is encouraging women to just wait until the primary is over and he can start actually trying to win over women again.  “[W]e’ve been in a tough primary fight and I think that as we shore up and I think that he’s now the sure winner of the nomination he’s going to have much more ability to focus on the difference between he and President Obama…Part of this gap is a reflection of where we are in the primary, and now it’s going to turn around very much.”

But perhaps the most disturbing plea was that of his wife, Ann Romney.  Ann, who the campaign has deputized in order to help him address his women problem, may have made things a little creepy with her answer to accusations that her husband was too “stiff.”  “[W]e better unzip him and let the real Mitt Romney out because he is not!”

Personally, whether he’s trying to appeal to women voters or not, I prefer he stayed zipped, thanks.

So either he's lying in the primaries or he's lying in the general election. That's what he's saying. And how do we know he's not lying in BOTH?

Why wouldn't he think women are that stupid? His wife apparently is. She doesn't even have her own Facebook profile. I looked for it yesterday b/c, well frankly, I thought she'd have one b/c Michelle Obama has HER own Page. But I couldn't find it under any of the names I tried, including her maiden last name and a few others.
'Why wouldn't she have her own Page?' I thought. Well I don't know, but it doesn't make any sense b/c every other politician's wife, of the ones I searched for, can be found.
The only thing I can think is he doesn't WANT her to have her own page, but I fail to understand why she's okay with what he wants in this case.
It seems to me like he married someone who's never going to argue with him about anything.
If you looked at their wedding picture, you can see it in her face that she's NOT going to give him any problems. You can see it loud and clear in the wedding photo, or I can.
And she doesn't argue with anything he does. But, MORE important, she doesn't have any way of making contact with the rest of the world the way HE does.
I just wonder how that can be only HER choice.

But HE can live a thousand years and STILL would never convince me to vote for him.
Nobody cares enough that President Obama found Osama bin Laden (it's not on his list of top 10 accomplishments but it's Number 1 on MY list of his accomplishments) to mention it as one of his accomplishments, and I KNOW Mitt ROMNEY could care less that we found Osama bin Laden.

Nope. Not stiff at all. Totally limp, in fact. And she should know.
