On recent television appearances Mitt Romney has been questioning the character of President Obama over his promises regarding the ACA. This is quite rich considering that Romney’s entire campaign put forward one lie after another.
The man simply has no shame. And his comments evidences that he continues to be extremely bitter after his loss. He, his wife, and his minions truly expected to win. Moreover, Romney felt entitled to win. As his wife said during the campaign, “It’s our turn.” Well…whoops…I guess it wasn’t.
His recent comments are not just the ugly slurs of a sore loser, though they are that. I think that Romney wants to run for President again. It seems he believes that his loss was an aberration, miscalculations on the part of his campaign (not his, because he’s never wrong) and the advantages of Obama’s incumbency. He feels that he was mischaracterized as a heartless and greedy plutocrat. The fact that it’s demonstrably true is something he refuses to see. 47% anyone?
Romney wants to be on the frontline of the attack during this period where Obama seems vulnerable. Further, there is no heir apparent for the Republican nomination, and Romney knows this. He is in apparent good health, and would be no older than Ronald Reagan when he won the presidency. If there is a void of strong contenders come the end of 2015, and if he sees an opening, I believe that Romney will jump into the race. After all, he’s entitled.
