(Snark alert!) Mitt Romney didn’t bully Rick Perry when he had a great opportunity

Dan Amira ARGUES that anyone who would take pity on “poor simpleton Rick Perry” cannot rightly be said to be a bully.

Amira says Romney campaign adviser Kerry Healey wants us to remember

the infamous GOP primary debate in which Perry, for a solid minute, hopelessly racked his poor, wretched brain for the third federal agency he’d abolish. Midway through that soul-crushingly uncomfortable display, when Ron Paul was just making things worse by distracting Perry with his claw of liberty, Romney suggested that maybe Perry was thinking of the EPA.

We’re not sure what motivated Romney there. Maybe he really did just feel bad for the guy, twisting in the wind in front of a horrified national audience. Or maybe Romney, by demonstrating that he was capable of naming a federal agency, was simply trying to show off his vastly superior mental abilities. Either way, what Romney didn’t do, in that moment of vulnerability, is hold Perry down and forcibly shave his head. And that’s progress.

    We would presume that most voter’s PRESUMPTIVE opinion would be that
    those are NOT the characteristics we need in a president.

    Ron Paul in his 70’s has almost perfect RECALL !

    That is NOT merely PRESUMPTIVE.

  2. Romney obviously has a little man complex he’s been trying to make up for all of his life from bullying classmates to his enjoyment of firing people after gutting their companies. His Magic Mormon Underwear can’t protect him from the press but can they make enough cash rain down to win the election?

    Well the above post by Brandt tells us the depth of his mental capabilities.
