The other day I posted Candidate Weather Vane, er, Mitt Romney continues to evade. It’s up to you, media, in which I noted that Willard says he wants to be president, yet he won’t go into detail about what he’d do if he got into office… probably because he knows nobody would like his policies anyway.
So instead he non-campaigns, slithers around, duck-and-covers, looks away, makes pies, and tap dances his way to November, hoping voters won’t notice and will simply vote against President Obama.
Think Progress agreed, saying, “If he’s successful in avoiding articulating policy positions, he can market himself as the ‘generic Republican’ alternative to President Obama.”
That particular evasion has been spotlighted by the media, yet, per The Hill, the tap dancing continues:
Mitt Romney’s campaign cut a press call short Wednesday after reporters started asking questions about immigration.
The conference call was set up to focus on the economy and to knock President Obama’s comment that the private sector was “doing fine.”

But Romney policy director Lanhee Chen wasn’t too thrilled, saying, “The one thing we ought to focus on with immigration” was “how the economy has failed the Latino community.” But those pesky reporters kept pushing on immigration, and Team Willard cut off the call.
Think, think, what does that remind you of? Oh! I know!
Willard Romney’s positions in 2 words: “We’ll see.” Shorter version:
