DON’T WRESTLE WITH A PIG
Why doesn’t anyone like Mitt Romney? Is it his attack ads? His pandering? His empty promises? His flip flopping? Who knows? No one is perfect.
Huckabee’s campaign manager, Ed Rollins, confessed that he would like to knock Romney’s teeth out. Huckabee’s staff didn’t think it was sporting that Romney didn’t bother to congratulate the former Arkansas governor when he won in Iowa. Something like that should not be enough to make one knock Romney’s teeth. It is rather the facts that he has enough money to buy ads that distort his opponents’ positions, he is willing to make empty promises to buy votes, he changes his positions to suit his audience. Some people see him as an empty suit, a man with no real convictions, a man who is willing to win at all costs.
John McCain said it best. When asked about Romney, he answered, “Never get into a wrestling match with a pig. You both get dirty, and the pig likes it.”
