Mitt Romney: The Man Who Won't Be President...Probably (Maybe).

There are any number of reasons why Mitt Romney will/should not be President. There's the magic underwear and posthumous conversions for the Jews. The way he let Moby play on and on and on AND ON during the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. The fact that he is named for a glove used to catch balls that have been hit hard. Oh...and the fact that huge concrete slabs in a Big Dig tunnel under his purview fell and killed a woman--that's the way it works...right Ted Kennedy? Kill a Massachusetts woman and no President for you!

But, f'reals: the Boston Globe is reporting that Romney may be having a Zoe Baird moment.

As Governor Mitt Romney explores a presidential bid, he has grown outspoken in his criticism of illegal immigration. But, for a decade, the governor has used a landscaping company that relies heavily on...illegal Guatemalan immigrants, to maintain the grounds surrounding his pink Colonial house on Marsh Street in Belmont.

The Globe recently interviewed four current and former employees of Community Lawn Service with a Heart, the tiny Chelsea-based company that provides upkeep of Romney's property. All but one said they were in the United States illegally.

Oooh, snap! On the bright side, at least he didn't try to fuck any of them. That puts him ahead of the '06 crowd, anyway.

Actually, we think the most revealing thing that came to light in the article is that Romney's son is named Taggart. Seriously. They named him after the Sergeant from Beverly Hills Cop! Sigh. One more reason.

Hasn't he already lost to John Kerry, doesn't that take him out of the running?

So you've got, what? Just about nothing on him, right? One more step and you'll be at the Fox News level. "Magic underwear" and "posthumous conversions for Jews?" And these directly relate to him...how? I doubt that he had anything to do with the Moby thing at SLC. The Big Dig tunnel incident was the fault of the man ACTUALLY in charge of it and the people who actually BUILT the thing. It's not like he was the construction foreman or anything. He trusted these people to...um...DO THEIR JOBS. Crazy, right? So, at best, you've got this illegal immigrants thing (on which I highly doubt you have all of the facts) and his and his son's names. It's a good thing you have a blog and not an actual career in reporting for an actual paper.

bostonienne - By "nothing", I think you mean "demonstrated hypocrisy on a hot-button issue for conservatives."

Also, Mitt's a Mormon. Judging by your handle, you probably know that. Try "posthumous conversion" and "Mormon underwear" in the Google.

As to "trusting" people to do their jobs, that's not really why we elect public servants. You don't see a lot of "Vote for me - I'm the most trusting!" ads, do you?

Geez, is 'the bostonienne' Kerrey Healey, perhaps? Incredibly touchy, you are!!!! You seem to forget how Mittsy was so determined to be "hands on" about all matters Big Dig, even before that huge slab (that wasn't inspected because he VETOED the funding for it) crushed that poor woman. See, it wasn't a matter of trusting people to 'do their jobs' it was a matter of cutting 31 MILLION DOLLARS from the TUNNEL MAINTENANCE/INSPECTION BUDGET. Don't simply believe me--follow the links, toots: http://www.bluemassgroup.com/showDiary.do;jsessionid=58D6EE778353A17F62B28CAB0FE074A4?diaryId=2830

And as for 'the illegal immigrant thing' as you call it, he might have noticed that everyone mowing his lawn didn't speak any English if he actually LIVED in his house, instead of commuting from his lake home in New Hampshire on the rare days he bothered to show up at the State House....that's, of course, when he wasn't hanging out at his house in his REAL home state, Utah, or prancing around down south trying to suck up to GOP tools.

The religion, if you can call it that, is just a bonus. Mittsy manages to be a total clown without that icing on his cake. That apple didn't fall far from his brainwashed daddy's tree, did it?

Don't quit YOUR day job, either--because if you aren't Kerrey Healey, well yes, I do want fries with that! Chop, chop, now!

How easy it must be for you to know nothing and yet run your mouths. Writing must be easier when you don't think about it. Sad.
