The wager

    Whereas Rick Perry is a carbon copy dunderhead of George W. Bush, Mitt Romney channeled George Herbert Walker Bush.
  It happened at the upteenth Republican presidential debate when Mitt matter-of-factly  dared Perry to bet $10,000 that he was wrong about something or other.
  Call it like it is: a blunder of epic proportions for Romney to so casually wave the amount of $10,000 in anybody’s face. He was so sure of the bet you could believe he had that much money on him.
  It was Mitt Romney’s Daddy Bush moment. Bush 41 blew his re-election bid in 1992 by being totally out of touch with us common folk when he tried to come off as one of us. That’s when he had a photo op at a grocery store and then was baffled at not knowing what was the purpose of the scanner at the check-out counter.
  Talk about your elitism. Your candidate of the top one percent of the wealthiest in America the bountiful.
  Maybe Mitt has finally gagged on that silver spoon.
  Don’t bet on it.
  You can tell Romney knew this was a big mistake, he was up early the next morning on Fox News trying to get in front of the damage. He must have been up to the wee hours of the morning in the Fox News War Room to come up with that lame excuse he gave.
  Fox News. Where facts go to die a premature death.
  It was a joke, Mitt said, like someone saying bet ya a million dollars. Nice try, Rockefeller. It was the spontaneous figure of $10,000 that will dog you throughout the primary.
  It was way too casual, like a working class stiff betting his buddy a beer that the girl at the end of the bar has an eye on you to buy her a drink and proceed with the flirtatious small talk.
  If you had a beer with Mitt Romney, he’d probably order a drink with an umbrella in it.
  Then he’d stiff you with the tab. Sorry, dude, the bartender couldn’t break a $10,000 bill.
  Mitt is the rich kid in high school who knew he couldn’t beat the popular jock for senior class president, so he ran and easily won as treasurer.
  Only in his high school he probably outsourced some of his classmates and earned an easy $10,000 in doing so.
  That would’ve been small change for him back then. That’s why it was so easy for him to make that wager now.
  Politicians always say they’re counting on your vote, not that they’re betting on it.
  In either case the country loses with a pompous ass like Mitt Romney.
  Admit it, you never did like your class treasurer.
