Romney ...

... is simply not a very good candidate. I've said it before. He has this reputation as someone who is very disciplined but he's actually quite the opposite. He's so wooden and on script that he's plastic and makes big mistakes. The reason people seem to think otherwise is he has been in some kind of weird campaign where his opponents declined to attack the frontrunner until about the last 24 hours. Here's a new example of how undisciplined Romney can be:

Now, the point Romney was making was a fair one. He was talking about health care and why it is necessary to have choice among plans. By the way Mitt, Obamacare allows for choice among plans ... so Mitt also happens to be perpetuating a lie about Obamacare here. But let's put that aside for a moment.

There are certain phrases a candidate for president should not say when the sole rationale for their campaign and the central theme of the Election Year is "job creation." One of those phrases is "I like being able to fire people." It is an especially bad phrase to utter when you worked for a corporate "chop shop" in Bain Capital where you had a history of buying companies and ... ya know, firing people.
