Michigan Hardly Seems Like Romney's Home State
the election in November.
While I'm no Romney supporter, I wasn't mad at the man for speaking about the attacks. He's running for President, and this was a major international occurrence. Despite the fact that I rolled my eyes at the TV when I saw him come on, I still feel Romney -- as a man who aspires to be commander in chief -- had every right, even an obligation, to stand up and say something about the killings of American diplomats overseas.
Problem was, just as in Michigan, he opened his mouth and just reminded us yet again of just how empty his suit really is. While Romney often seems awkward and more than a little disconnected from regular folks, he can still prove passable many times. But the man is at his absolute worst when he tries to convey substance.
On the big stage amid a major international crisis, observers turned to Mitt Romney and looked to him to offer some analysis, some insight, some comment that might assure the American people that he has what it takes to captain a nation in turmoil to calmer waters.
And just as he has here in Michigan, around the country and for the entire election season, Romney showed yet again exactly what he has to offer: Nothing.
