There are have been a plethora of bad candidates who have sought the highest office in the US. Dan Quayle, Michele Bachmann, Pat Robertson, Fred Thompson, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain (the list of worst candidates will tend to lean Republican, since the worst people in this country generally are Republicans).
But NONE are as bad a candidate as Willard Romney. The son of privilege, looks out of central casting, successful in business, former governor, nice family (don’t ask the dog though), LOTS of money behind him. Sure he is a robot, a parrot for his backers and would sell his mother to win – but all politicians including those on the left tend to have some of those traits. But Mittens Romney is beyond being an empty suit – he is the black hole of politics – he sucks everything in nothing ever comes out. He is a Candidatanus.
The man has no soul, no original thoughts and obviously not many brains. He is the poster child of “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” This nomination should have been his eons ago. Hence, Our Mr. Romney is now resorting to crooning his troubles away.
