…bring tears to my eyes.
Say what you will about Mitt Romney, he was one of the best men—on the personal level—ever to run for president in my lifetime. Maybe the best. And I believe he would have been a very good president, for all the reasons I’ve stated in the million or so (give or take a few) words I’ve written about him on this blog.
Looks interesting, but oh so painful (for me, anyway; perhaps not so much for you):
NOW they make it.
And here’s some snarky yet interesting commentary from the left:
…[I]n the end, Romney wasn’t as easy to hate as some other politicians might be.
So a year after he joined that small, melancholy club of presidential losers, it’s time that even those of us who thought it would be a terrible thing if he became president can see Romney as a human being. In January, Netflix will be releasing a behind-the-scenes documentary called “Mitt,” and the preview is surprisingly endearing…
Not so easy to hate? They certainly gave a good imitation of it, didn’t they?
NOW they can afford to admit that the man they slandered (and continue to slander*) was a good man, because it doesn’t cost them anything. They got their Obama second term, by hook or by crook. Hope it turns out to be a Pyrrhic victory.
[NOTE: *I'm using the word "slander" in its colloquial rather than legal sense. Legally, however, slander is spoken and libel is written, and the entire kit and caboodle is legally known as defamation.]
