Unbelievable

You picked him, GOP.  Good job.

    Mark Steyn’s got a good column on this when it first floated up… this January
    http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/288873/man-who-gave-us-newt-mark-steyn

    I’m just hoping that he’s improved since then.

    What did I just read?

    Mark,
    You obviously can’t fathom what he’s saying. It’s just too deep for you. He’s offering the nationalistic/patriotic version of the ontological argument.

  • Esther

    I believe in a tautology where millions of tautologisers tautologise the tautology that millions of tautologisers tautologise. That’s the tautology I love.

  • Ken Jones

    Hmmm… Things are more like they are now than they have ever been before.

  • Dale Price

    I’m the furthest thing from a Romney booster, but did he *really* say that? I saw the Steyn reference to it, but never saw it in any other form.

  • victor

    At least he doesn’t believe in an America with 57 (or was that 58?) states. In all fairness, when you have cameras in your face 24 hours a day for months on end on the stump with little sleep, you’re bound to ramble on incoherently once in a while. You try it, sometime.

    • Nick R

      I agree, I do feel badly for the way in which any small slip up (and this isn’t even a slip up, just a little nonsensical/silly ) during the hundreds of thousands of words they say will be repeated ad nauseam.
      If it a sentence that shows what they actually think or is revealing of their character or thoughts, I might understand, but this just seems to be mean spirited nitpicking.
      I understand that it’s currently part of the job of campaigning, but just because the status quo stinks doesn’t mean it’s ok. Perhaps we could focus on issues rather than statements caused by exhaustion?

      • SecretAgentMan

        Thank you, voices of reason. Let’s add the culture of perfectionism in which no candidate can admit he or she becomes tired.

  • Dave

    Yeah, I wouldn’t hold that against Romney. Every politician says stupid stuff once in a while. In context, maybe one could figure out what he’s talking about.

    The only thing I care about for politicians are:
    (1) Their positions
    (2) Can I trust them to maintain those positions? (Voting record)
    (3) Is their personal life reflective of a person of character?

    It’s on the first two of these that Romney miserably fails, especially the 2nd, since he has changed positions so many times that it’s impossible to even speak of a Romney position.

      A liberal, a conservative, and a moderate walk into a bar. The bartender says, “Hi, Mitt.”

    Just another one of those ‘weird’ mormon beliefs. . .

  • Kevin

    i read that and thought “oh [explitive deleted]!”

  • Martial Artist

    Mark,
    One minor quibble with your “You picked him, GOP. Good job. Namely the following. Not yet they haven’t. Romney does not yet have the requisite number of delegates to be the presumptive nominee. And with only two candidates remaining for the GOP nomination, it is not yet a foregone conclusion that he will automatically get them. Sorry to be a spoilsport, but rumors of Romney’s assured nomination are, at this date, still premature.

    Pax et bonum,

    • Mark Shea

      yeah, but it’s a done deal. Has been since the start.

  • IB Bill

    It is a terrible waste to lose one’s mind.

    • Mark Shea

      Or never to have had a mind. How true that is.

  • Lou

    I think you’ve been had.
    This sounds like Mark Steyn making fun of Mitt Romney, not Romney himself: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/288873/man-who-gave-us-newt-mark-steyn#
