Michelle Malkin is onto something. She points out Mitt’s latest boo hoo moment (a craven attempt at the Clinton strategy that paid off in New Hampshire):
In his first state campaign stop in Grand Rapids, a voter fondly recalled his father, George, former Michigan governor and CEO of AMC. “He was a great man and I miss him dearly,” said the candidate, choking up.
And then she points out the obvious:
Look, I hate to sound harsh, but we live in a time of war. If the Democrats want to nominate a 9/10-era candidate whose eyes leak like a faucet whenever push comes to shove, fine.
But Republicans do not need an Oprah in a three-piece suit.
Republicans should not nominate a phony who will say anything and even weep on cue. We’re better and smarter than the left.
Turn off the waterworks. Mitt Romney becoming Weeping Willard won’t turn my vote. It only turns my stomach. Is he going to cry for the terrorists so that they won’t be mean to us? Give me a break. Give America a break.
