No, this is not a rhetorical or leading question. I always assumed he was in fact highly intelligent. You may not like what he did at Bain but I’m pretty familiar with it, looking at it from a narrow company perspective, he did a superb job in difficult circumstances. But a number of recent actions on his part make me seriously reconsider.
First, he goes out of his way to goad Russia and declare that country to be America’s greatest threat. Is this guy for real? Russia is but a rump USSR (remember Mitt – it collapsed in ruins?) and is busy trying to keep its own very messy house in order. Its armed forces are but a shadow of what they were and with the demise of Communism Russia has no ideological fight with the West anymore. Why do some American politicians always need a threat? Silly question of course. So maybe Mitt was just picking a convenient bogey to meet that particular requirement.
But the stupidest thing imaginable has been his pandering and grovelling to the black ‘community’. He’s repeated all the old bromides, blamed ‘society’ for all the ills of the black ‘communities’, things like low test scores, crime, unemployment, single parenthood. He talked how black America has ‘suffered’. And he wants to do something about it! Why it looks as if Condi Rice might be his VP selection, even though she’s an avowed Obama fan.
Does he not realise that no matter what he does he won’t get more than a miniscule fraction of the black vote? Surely he must know this? And by his pandering he’s turning off large numbers of white Americans who are shit sick of being on the receiving – and paying – end of the whole racist shakedown for decades. They see, one after another, their neighbourhoods revert to jungle status as blacks are flooded into them via Section 8, AA and EBT purchasing power.
They’re tired of fleeing, time after time, further and further out, to escape the black tide. They're sick of seeing their taxes going to pay for the very things making their lives a misery. There’s a huge constituency out there. Even in MSM outlets that allow (heavily edited) comments you’ll see that ordinary Whites are seeing through the crap they’ve been sold and are ready to revolt. Romney would have this constituency sown up were he to make some sensible statements about race. Sure, he’d be branded a cook and a Nazi by most of the MSM, but as I said earlier, readers are increasingly seeing through the lies. These people would flock to his cause. I have no doubt about it.
Now look at the numbers. Whites outnumber blacks by about four to one, and of those who vote, probably more. We know that only a miniscule proportion of blacks will ever vote against Obama, probably in the region of 250,000. Even a very conservative estimate of what we might call race realist Whites must put their numbers at five to ten million. Yet Romney goes after the 250k and pisses off the millions of White realists. Why would he do that? Maybe he thinks that such Whites will not vote for Obama, no matter what Romney does or says. And he’s undoubtedly correct. But the question is, how many of them will not bother to vote for Romney either, giving his pandering, and just say a plague on both of their houses?
I believe it’s a great risk. I'm putting myself mentally in that position, and personally I believe that I'd not bother voting were the choice to lie between Obama and a Romney who would sustain the anti-White environment that now prevails. Not to mention his grovelling to the Neocons and the Israelis (but, as Mark Twain said, I repeat myself).
Is he stupid? Or has he a deeper and more cunning plan that I can’t figure out?
