Slowly but surely, the conservative wing of the Republican Party is starting to warm up to Mitt Romney.
The reason for the sudden epiphany can be traced back to just a few days ago when Romney snarked the line “I enjoy being able to fire people.”
The right wing-nuts are now convinced that Romney has been Mitt-understood all this time and that he does speak their language.
As George W. Bush might mangle, “Don’t Mitt-underestimate Romney.”
The GOP damage control unit is trying to turn his quote that will live in infamy into a rallying cry for free enterprise.
Romney’s victory speech in New Hampshire was more like his “I accept my party’s nomination” speech. By the way, Fox News Foxholes and Princess Photo-Op Palin, the Mittster used a teleprompter. Just like you-know-who in our White House does. A mortal since to GOPeers who speak in 30 -second soundbites and bumper sticker mentality.
Now that the GOP has its crusader to fight the battle against President Obama’s “European socialist state” meanwhile all the time convincing his followers that he’s the one to elect to “save the soul of America,” Mitt Romney needs some Tebow Time.
Tim Tebow that is. The quarterback of the Denver Broncos who has made religion his goal-post in the NFL.
He’s famous for praising the Lord while playing the game. And then when God starts hating the opposing team and lets his archangel score touchdowns —- especially winning touchdowns — Tebow goes to one knee and says amen and looks up to his Lord and savior.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Except now the Republican presidential nominees want Tebow’s endorsement, because Republicans are Christians and Democrats and their Muslim born in Kenya socialist friend to homegrown terrorists in our White House is a Jesus hater.
Romney may be close to sealing the deal as the GOP standard-bearer, but, sadly, his Mormon faith may still rear its ugly head in places like South Carolina.
That would’ve all been put to rest had the frontrunner not only given a victory speech Tuesday night after winning the New Hampshire Primary, but got down to one knee and did the “Tebow.”
OK, he would’ve thanked Joseph Smith, but hey, it’s the thought that counts. Mitt would’ve been It for sure.
Maybe next time. Unless Tebow (who throws “left” handed, right wing-nuts) loses his religion after falling to defeat to the New England Patriots this weekend.
The Patriots aren’t sinners like Ben Roethlesberger and The Pittsburgh Steelers (Tebow’s passing yards against the 6-time Super Bowl champs was 316. Get it, like John 3:16), and Brady is, dare we say it, a football god among sportscasters.
Speaking of Beasts from the East, Mitt is on a roll, even though his competition keeps painting him as a real life Gordon Gekko —- the stock market vulture Michael Douglas played in Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street” in 1986. By the way, Douglas won a best actor Oscar for playing the “Greed is good” character.
So if Mitt’s Gordon Gekko, what character will his opponent, you-know who not one of us in our white house, be?
Let’s go with the Sidney Poitier character from “To Sir, with Love.” In that classic from the 1960s, Sidney played a teacher, and Obama is professorial.
After all, he could end up schooling the Republicans again.
Will the 2012 presidential election turn out to be a battle of good vs. greed?
If so, then you would have to ask yourself, “What would Tebow do?”
