Seamus gets ready to hit the road

It's obvious why Seamus Romney is getting antsy. The man who threw the dog carrier on the car roof and his principles under the bus for a 2008 presidential run is getting ready to hit the road again!

Yep, like the proverbial seven-year itch, only on a shorter cycle, Willard Mitt Romney is about to embark on a coast-to-coast tour, a 25-state midterm jaunt ostensibly to help the Republican party lay the groundwork to take back America from the socialists and the Muslims.

Only with Myth Version 3.0 (or is that 6.0?) -- a kinder, gentler soul downplaying his ideological warrior side for the inner wonk he suppressed in his unsuccessful quest to convince the True Believers of the GOP that he was one of them.

His biggest problem is the True Believers (defined as believing Barack Obama is a foreign-born Muslim) control the minds of an increasingly larger percentage of the Republican Party and prefer to dance with Sarah Palin.

But Romney may have a secret weapon among those who have had their brains snatched: one of his predecessors as Massachusetts governor, Michael Stanley Dukakis:
“Mitt Romney’s the biggest disappointment I think I’ve ever seen,” Dukakis said. “He was a lousy governor. After a year and a half, he just walked away from the job. He just bounces around depending on the way the wind blows.”
Pretty good 10-second spot as far as I can tell, but probably unlikely to help Obama in a world where we argue endlessly over Newt Gingrich-fed non-issues like a "Ground Zero mosque" near the Pussycat Lounge two blocks away from the World Trade Center site.

But as a blogger, I welcome the return of Myth Romney. As George Bush said, "bring 'em on."

Only be nice to Seamus.

OMG...is Dukakis REALLY willing to trash Romney? On TAPE? On the RECORD?

You're funning me...it's too good to be true...President Romney, 2012!
