    Insights aplenty in this Newsweek article by Michael Tomasky:


    Mitt Romney: Too Wimpy for the White House?

    Dodging reporters, fearing his base, hiding his taxes—is Mitt Romney just too insecure to be president? In Newsweek, Michael Tomasky surveys a history of presidential manliness and asks just where Mitt would fit amid the studly swagger of Dubya and Reagan.


    The article concludes with this WARNING:

    But if Romney is elected? Be nervous. A Republican president sure of his manhood had nothing to prove. Reagan was happy with a jolly little shoot-up in Grenada, and eventually he settled down to the serious work of arms control, consummating historic treaties with Mikhail Gorbachev. But a weenie Republican—look out. He has something to prove, needs to reassert that “natural” advantage. That spells trouble more often than not.

    Thanks socalfitness, or is it Mildred?

    Mitt gets nailed so aptly in this article:

    " what’s really wrong with Romney.

    He’s kind of lame, and he’s really ... annoying.

    He keeps saying these ... things, these incredibly off-key things.

    Then he apologizes immediately—with all the sincerity of a hostage.

    Or maybe he doesn’t: sometimes he whines about the subsequent attacks on him. But the one thing he never does? Man up, double down, take his lumps."


    MITT NEVER TAKES RESPONSIBILITY. NEVER.

    Mildred, you really want this weenie to be president ???

    MANLINESS DEFINED: “confidence in a situation of risk.”

    "By this definition, the conservative definition, Romney is a total bust.

    He’s the most risk-averse major politician to come along in ages.

    He accepted the job at Bain Capital only after wringing out of Bill Bain a promise that, if the venture failed, Mitt would be welcomed back to Bain & Co.—at his old levels of compensation and seniority—and that the press and public would be fed some happy talk about how it had all gone as intended. And why didn’t he leave Bain in 1999 to go run the Olympics, as he always said he had, but instead take his now-famous “leave of absence”? To have the option of coming back; to minimize the risk.

    Even his flip-flopping, his taking of positions all over the map, is a form of risk aversion, being all things to all people, able to placate any audience, never stuck out on a limb unable to satisfy."

    CJAZ, YOU are going to love this article.... IF you can take it as a wake-up call.
    Even with your enormous Mormon allegiance, I think you'll be able to see that Mitt would be the disaster that could ruin the Republican Party for the rest of your life.

    There's still time. Call Jon Huntsman.

    I don't know if it's a Wimpishness
    But there seems to be a lack of conviction and a quality that you don't know where he is coming from whether it is a mere playing to his base or an attempt to cover up lies that he has committed in the past

    Yup.
    Mitt is a wimp.

    I think the Brits summed up Romney the best though:
    "Mitt The Twit" is "devoid of charm" and "offensive".

    And what a total train wreck his trip abroad has been!
    The Repubs must be incredibly embarrassed to have this loser making their party look worse than ever.
