Pamela Powers Hannley, a progressive voice for Arizona
Mitt Romney has had such a lackluster showing on the national stage that I am amazed he is still running for president.
But he has enough money behind him to overcome the fact that he’s a milk-toast rich boy. The oligarchs would rather have a malleable milk-toast than a loose cannon (ie, Sarah Palen, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry) in the White House.
Watching Romney defend corporate personhood (top video) and promote bowing to market forces and allowing continued home foreclosures (bottom video), it’s obvious to see who his masters are, and it’s not the 99%. At the end of his clip about letting foreclosures happen, I’m surprised he didn’t say, “Aw… let them eat cake.”
