Mitt's Mesmerizing Sales Job

If you are a salesman and you see life and politics as about the sell, you adjust the sell every time to a different customer-base. Most people find this perfectly natural in a business setting, and it makes a lot of sense.

Yes, I saw another Willard Romney at this debate...he moved to the center, which shouldn't have shocked me, but did. Since I refuse to watch FuxNoise, I don't know how they're apologizing to the teabaggers today for Willard's statements. Wondering if he's going to spend the next couple weeks walking back most of his comments....

Carrie- your opinions are your own. The media, and the majority of the American public seem to have a different view.

Allan, the majority of the American public do not trust Romney nor like him according to multiple recent polls--not just Carrie's opinion.
Magicians mesmerize by misdirection and Romney used misdirection as a tactic repeatedly during last night's debate instead of actually answering the question or responding to content (e.g., higher education). He also showed he doesn't know the difference between the constitution (common defense and provide for the general welfare government responsibilities) and the Declaration of Independence (pursuit of happiness). So for education, he's shown himself to be opposed to science (climate change) and apparently history...and seemingly pretended college grants and loans are the same thing as far as today's students are concerned...many other ghastly in addition to be rude, disrespectful and refusing to follow the rules of the debate he had agreed to....not statesmanlike nor diplomatic and showed why he bombed when visiting other countries.

Allan, I'm afraid the majority of the media agree with me. Romney is a great salesman and an accomplished liar.

I don't trust Romney or Obama. Obama has sold himself to too many people. Lokk at his associates. Radicals. He will be a dictator. And Romney is a liar. We are in big trouble.

Romney is a teflon man; he says whatever he thinks will sell people on him. Let's face it, Romney only cares about 53% of the American population; the rest, well, he can't help them. What a great leader he will be for America. I am not happy with Obama either but at least the Democratic platform includes all, not just some, Americans.

Janet R., you are wrong about one thing......he doesn't care about 53% of the people, he cares about 1% of the people. Everyone else is actually "beneath" him as far as he is concerned.

Great way to be if you are a heartless dictator in a fascist state, but not good for a president. No, a President in this country, in order to be good, must concern himself with the nation above all else. Above his personal feelings, above his religion and most of all, above his campaign donors.

The only thing Mitt's good at memorizing are all his lies which appear everytime he opens his lying mouth.

Super article, Carrie! Even Mitt's head cheerleader didn't argue with this one!
