Romney's Subliminal Marketing

In a subtle marketing ploy, Mittens has begun comparing himself to Jesus Christ. He has begun describing himself as the son of an uneducated carpenter. Not only that but a magical carpenter who could spit nails into wood.
Mitt and George Romney, the early years.
When Mittens was born, George Romney was an auto industry lobbyist, he hadn't swung a hammer for pay in two decades. Early in Mitten's childhood, his dad became head of a now defunct automaker, American Motors.
The Rambler was his claim to fame.
George was a Rockefeller Republican who nearly tripled state government spending during his six years as governor of Michigan. He was a gaffe prone politician (like father, like son) who most famously said that he had been "brainwashed" over the Vietnam War (To which Gene McCarthy quipped, "a light rinse would have been sufficient.").

This is not to denigrate George Romney. George was ten times the man his son will ever be. But the semi-deific image Mittens is trying to paint is a bald-faced lie, an insult to his father, and an insult to the intelligence of the American people.

Few people remember George Romney, which is not saying much, since there was little of importance about him to remember. Since Mitt Romney believes in little else but money for him and his friends, whatever his dad may have taught him resulted in nothing useful developing in his son. If Mitt wants to campaign that he is his father's son, let him do it. It will mean nothing to anyone. If he wants to campaign that his father was a carpenter at one time during the depression or before, let him. There was no one on this planet who believes that he even knows what carpentry is. Mostly, right now, he believes that he can say anything, regardless of truth, and that money will convert whatever he says into his becoming president. We will see how ethically bankrupt this country is by how many actually are led by the nose by Romney's money.
