As Santa has made his list and checked it twice, and PoliticusUSA is doing the same. Find out who has been naughty and nice in the world of politics. Next up, Mitt Romney.
Hrafnkell Haraldsson- Naughty, for demonstrating that he is nothing more than a serial liar and the man least in need of a swift-boating in American politics because he has already sunk his own boat.
Adalia Woodbury- Naughty. Mitt Romney’s lump of coal was earned the day he declared that corporations are people too. Mitt’s lump of coal will be wrapped in Bernie Saunders proposal to return the first Amendment to natural persons. Mitt has done a lot of flip-flopping on matters such as healthcare, equality for the LGBT community (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/15/mitt-romney-gay-marriage-abortion_n_1152738.html ) choice for women, and global warming. Santa thinks Mitt needs some help so he will be getting stylish flip-flops in his stocking as well.
Ray Medeiros Jr.- Naughty. Mitt Romney for running to become the FIRST professional job outsourcing President.
Janine Wallace- Naughty. Mitt should have coal in his stocking as he is too preoccupied with looking pretty and changing his topical stance more often than teenagers change their underwear.
Jason Easley- Naughty. Mitt Romney is a very special presidential candidate. It is rare to see such empty, and characterless candidate advance so far. Romney stands for nothing, but blind political ambition. Those who vote for him should be aware that they have absolutely no idea what they are voting for.
Paul Yeager- Naughty. I kept flip-flopping between naughty and nice, but Santa doesn’t like little rich establishment boys who try to pretend that they’re average Americans, especially when they pretend to not like the health care system that they invented.
Cassandra Vert- NAUGHTY. Mitt Romney reminds me of people playing roles in movies. First is Cruella DeVil’s butler in the first live-action 101 Dalmatians movie. Early in the movie, she asks him, “What sort of sycophant are you?” Without missing a beat, he answers, “What sort of sycophant would you like me to be?” This is Romney all over the campaign trail. Boehner can also be a sycophant, but he’s not nearly that smooth. Then, of course, there is Gordon Gekko in the original Wall Street. Romney made money buying and disassembling companies just as Gordon Gekko did. At least Gekko’s philosophical grounding was consistent with his actions; he was proud to be an unscrupulous, profit-seeking missile. Romney seems to know he is not following the rules, and he’s already planning his excuses for when he gets caught. Then Mitt Romney turns into young Mickey Rooney playing a lovable scofflaw. Did I say that? (Yup, it’s on tape/ a public filing/ your tax forms.) Insert boyish smile. Gosh fellas, there seems to be a misunderstanding here. I must have been confused. I must not have read that right. You know how it is (wink). Guys like us have to stick together. Can’t we just forget about it this time? Just this once? What do you say, fellas?
Rmuse- Naughty. Romney is, deep down, a bad man. The fact that he changes his positions depending on which way the political winds blow does not typify a man of character or conviction, but a man who can be bought by the highest bidder. Willard really is the face of corporate greed and low moral character. Any man who brags about his business perspicacity that destroyed lives and jobs to enrich himself is a danger to America and democracy.
Sarah Jones- Poor Multiple Mitt is both naughty and nice depending on which Mitt you’re remembering, so Ms Claus gives him half a lump of coal and half a treat and hopes someday the two will meet.
Santa Says: It looks like naughty Mitt will be getting nothing for Christmas.
