The Look of Latte

by Pa Rock

In an attempt to paint the presumptive (at least in her own mind) Democratic candidate as not being authentic, Mitt Romney went on Morning Joe yesterday and said this of Mrs. Clinton:

"Somehow, though, when you see her on a stage or when she comes into a room full of people, she's smiling with her mouth, but her eyes are saying, you know, 'Where's my latte?'"
That's a clever line, one that the dullard Romney has surely paid someone to craft - just like his wife pays people to teach her horses how to dance.  But it's just a line, one created to be memorable and easily repeated, while not really saying anything of substance either for or against the candidate.    It's a tacky attempt at humor - and ain't that Mitt a card!  (Knee slap, knee slap!)

If there was ever a candidate who looked as though he would be more comfortable holding a latte than shaking the hand of a factory worker or a mechanic, that person would be Mitt Romney.  He is a dilettante who expects to be pampered - and have his pillows fluffed - and his shoes shined - and be handed a latte without having to ask.

So I guess the Mittster knows that of which he speaks.   If someone has the look of latte in their eyes, Mitt would be the one to recognize it.

The good news is that Mitt Romney is accusing Hillary Clinton of being like himself.  The bad news is . . . well, there is no bad news.  Those two could sling lattes at each other all day without getting any on the real people who populate the real world.

Bernie in 2016!
