The meme of every major Republican distancing themselves from their very own nominee doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon, as there are 44 days left for the Romney machine to offend even more voting blocs. It’s gotten to the point where in only a matter of days, Rep. Todd Akin will be calling for Romney to step down for the good of the Republican party.
A fairly good indicator of knowing you stepped in a heaping mountain of dancing horse dung is when conservative luminary, David Brooks, is calling you out. From his totally inappropriate comments on the embassy crisis in Libya, to his Monty Burns-esque “f*#k you” to 47 percent of the country and even to his going brown face at a Univision sponsored event, the Romney campaign appears to be run by Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.
Appearing on “Meet the Press,” the conservative New York Times columnist joined many Republicans on a panel to lay into Romney.
Brooks did not mince words, calling Romney “the least popular candidate in history.” “He has to look at what the president’s weakness is,” Brooks said. “He’s never gonna win a popularity contest.”
Brooks added that Romney “does not have the passion for the stuff he’s talking about.” “He’s a problem solver,” Brooks said. “I think he’s a non-ideological person running in an extremely ideological age, and he’s faking it.” (Huffington Post)

It can be said that William Henry Harrison, the idiot who refused to wear a coat during his freezing January inauguration, eventually dying from pneumonia after lying supine for a month, made a more effective president than Romney does a presidential candidate. Let’s face it: Romney is just an out of touch, mean-spirited, entitled, effete weenie elitist who can’t even buy favorability. He really strikes you as the kid who only had friends because they wanted to play with all the cool toys his rich daddy bought for him. And at a pathetic 35 percent likability rating, Romney is certainly not proving he’s no longer that spoiled brat who just cannot relate to anyone outside of his 1 percent voting base.
