Document: Mitt Romney Hates France, Self
We learned last weekend (in this dryly hilarious Wash Whispers item) that Mitt Romney will be our "first PowerPoint president," so it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that a 77-slide PowerPoint presentation detailing all of his major negatives and campaign strategies ended up in the hands of the Boston Globe.
What are Mitt's negatives?
* hair too perfect
* some, mostly character actors from the 1930s, have called him "Slick Dancing Mitt"
* The Mormon thing
Mitt's list of bogeymen to run against seems to have been written by a bad satirist contributing live via satellite from 2002.
Enmity toward France, where Romney did his Mormon mission during college, is a recurring theme of the document. The European Union, it says at one point, wants to "drag America down to Europe's standards," adding: "That's where Hillary and Dems would take us. Hillary = France." The plan even envisions "First, not France" bumper stickers.
Hatred of the country where Mitt did his mission work is just one example of the guilty self-loathing on display in the slideshow. One of the other major enemies of the Mitt Romney campaign is, of course, Massachusetts, the state Mr. Romney was governor of for four years. Hell, we hate Boston too, but we're not gonna test how much by living there for 40 years.
