Where did they find this guy?

This guy has the worst political tin ear I've ever come across in presidential politics. Seriously, what in the hell is he doing running for office?

Mitt Romney steered clear of the Rush Limbaugh controversy until Friday evening, even avoiding a CNN reporter earlier in the day, when he addressed the issue after an event in Cleveland.

“I'll just say this which is it’s not the language I would have used," Romney said.

Huh? Even Santorum did better than that and he really does think women who use birth control are all sluts. This was a freebie for Romney. When you have the nation's leading right wing Catholic politician giving you cover, take advantage of it, and be the bigger man.

He just cannot get this right. Earlier in the week, he made a total ass of himself with this one:

ROMNEY: I didn’t understand his question. Of course I support the Blunt amendment. I thought he was talking about some state law that prevented people from getting contraception. So I simply misunderstood the question and of course I support the Blunt amendment…No, I simply misunderstood what he was talking about. I thought it was some Ohio legislation, where employers were prevented from providing contraceptives, and so I talked about contraceptives and so I really misunderstood the question. Of course Roy Blunt who is my liaison to the Senate is someone I support and of course I support that amendment. I clearly want to have religious exemption from Obamacare…. I really think all Americans should be allowed to get around this religious exemption.

After all that, he's being cagey over Limbaugh? He really doesn't know what he thinks? In fact, he seems so befuddled by all this, I'm finding it hard to believe he fathered all those kids. Does he not get that he could sound all prim and conservative if he just said something like "my parents taught me to be respectful of women and that isn't respectful." Who's going to argue with that, a bunch of wingnut frat boys and dittoheads?

Honestly, this guy is just a mess. I almost feel sorry for him. Except for the hundreds of millions and the fascistic tendencies. But you know what I mean.
