YOU know Willard Romney is a lousy candidate. I know Willard Romney is a lousy candidate. But does the GOP? They'd have to be even more out of touch than they already are to not know.
According to Roll Call it turns out a few of them have figured it out.
Take conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer for instance: “The Republican bench had several candidates stronger than Romney, but they chose not to run."
He forgot to add: "So we're stuck with Willard."
But this next part of Roll Call's article stood out because it's not often we can get an honest statement from John Boehner. The whole thing started when a woman asked, “Can you make me love Mitt Romney?” Boehner answered, “No." It got more interesting from there:
But at a June 30 fundraiser in Wheeling, W.Va., Speaker John Boehner offered a surprisingly frank assessment of the dynamic that surprised some in the audience. [...]
"The American people probably aren’t going to fall in love with Mitt Romney. I’ll tell you this: 95 percent of the people that show up to vote in November are going to show up in that voting booth, and they are going to vote for or against Barack Obama. Mitt Romney has some friends, relatives and fellow Mormons ... some people that are going to vote for him. But that’s not what this election is about... Solid guy, he’s going to do a great job, even if you don’t fall in love with him."
And of course, he also went on about what a big ol' boob the president is.
The joke's on The Boehner who admitted right out loud that, to most Americans, his very own candidate's an even bigger one.
