Inspecting the politically target-rich environment that is Mitt Romney’s personality and record, Barack Obama’s strategists are reportedly torn between two approaches: pointing out that Romney is a soulless vote-seeking zombie with no actual core beliefs, or instead trying to label him as a right-wing lunatic.
But as Howard Raiffa said, when given a choice between A and B, you should always ask “Why can’t I have both?”
Mitt Romney is a soulless vote-seeking zombie with no actual core beliefs, whose political calculation has induced him, and will continue to induce him should be become President, to act like a right-wing lunatic on topics ranging from shutting down Planned Parenthood to enriching the rich at the expense of the rest of the population.
There! That wasn’t so hard, was it?
