I Agree With Tucker Carlson?

August 12, 2012

ImageIt’s not often that I agree with Tucker Carlson, but he was spot-on in his recent comment on Geraldo’s radio show. The topic was the Priorities USA Super PAC ad featuring Joe Soptic, whose wife died of cancer, and Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul’s statement that Ms. Soptic would’ve had heath care insurance if only she’d lived in Massachusetts. Conservative loudmouths like Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter were, predictably, calling for Saul’s head, but Tucker Carlson took a broader view:

“It’s amateur hour over on that campaign. There’s no question about that. I’ve dealt with, you know, I’ve covered these since 1992, and I don’t think I’ve ever dealt with a presidential campaign with more children in positions of authority. People who have less understanding of how the process words. Who are less grounded in policy. No, it’s a disaster, in my opinion.”

I really find it hard to take Mitt Romney and the Romney campaign seriously. He seems to be just about the worst
possible candidate the Republicans could put forward at this particular time in history, except for everybody in the clown-car of morons and wingnuts who challenged him for the Republican nomination. And I think the divisions within the Republican party and its supporters are as problematic for Romney as they were for McCain. But clearly it’s also important not to overlook the possibility that Romney has surrounded himself with people who aren’t up to the task, and don’t deserve to be taken any more seriously than their boss.
