    position in the world. Romney doesn't care about governing or helping people ... Romney cares about Romney holding the position. If he attained the highest position in his church, he'd just be a big fish in a small pond. He want's to be the biggest fish in the ocean.

    Chris Matthews nailed it last month when he went on his glorious rant. I wrote a diary about it then:

    Let me finish with this Romney character. I don't think Romney cares all that much about the presidency, except that he wants it. If he weren't running, do you think he'd be watching this show or any other show on politics? Mitt cares about three things: his faith, his family, his business. Right now his business is running for president. That's why he's interested in the presidency. It's his business to be interested.
    "This Romney character?" Not a person, a character. I think what Chris is trying to say here is that Mitt cares about the presidency in the sense that somebody cares about winning a trophy. It's a prize for him, not a calling. He's not running for president because he has any great desire to help improve the lives of as many people in this country as he can.

    Wow! His Faith, His Family, His Business (w/Video)

    If you didn't the rant, it's well worth watching. If you can't watch it, I transcribed it so you can read it.

    For me, Mitt reminds me of Jeff Bridges in Starman. He's like an alien that hasn't read the entire manual. You know, he's going, "Nice to be in a place where the trees are the right size. -- Robin Williams on Letterman 26 Apr 2012
