Young Mitt Romney Makes A Lot of Sense Talking About Politics and Partisanship (Video)

Mitt Romney’s parents were two moderate politicians who bucked the Republican establishment of the time, an idea that has been unthinkable to Mitt in his two presidential campaigns. Maybe it’s time to have a talk with your younger self, Mitt. Great find from Andrew Kaczynski on Buzzfeed:

Mitt Romney’s roots in politics run in his family. His father George served as the Governor of Michigan from 1963–1969 and later as HUD Secretary in the Nixon Administration. George Romney was a natural and charismatic politician, but the younger Romney perhaps better takes after his mother Lenore, who lacked her husband’s natural political gifts. Lenore Romney ran for Senate in 1970, and 23-year-old Mitt Romney campaigned during his summer vacation for his mom. Romney appeared in a video made for her campaign.

    Romney contradict himself? Whaaa..!? 

    The reality is, every candidate in the spotlight becomes a spokesperson for those interests which financially support them. The candidate’s personal beliefs are irrelevant to the goal of getting elected and instituting cronyism. This is our electoral system. The results will remain until the finance system is overhauled.

      Sheltered because he is unaware of how politics really works, naive and idealistic because he is young … BTW chatspeak is so COOL …
