Romney's Plastic Nature Makes for an Inauthentic Candidate

Unlike Mitt Romney’s political beliefs my feelings on Romney have never flip flopped. I never trusted his views because I never actually believed that he believed them. Romney has provided us with years of evidence that he is inauthentic at best and generally perceived as plastic.

Based on this premise, the Super PAC that I founded, AmericanLP, put our resources behind creating ads that mock Mitt Romney. Some of you might remember these ads from the way we crowd sourced ideas and concepts in the past.

As part of our January “Messing with Mitt” campaign we will begin airing two new attack ads in New Hampshire. The ads are designed to mock GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney by highlighting his “plastic” nature. “Mitt Romney v. Ken doll” is a new 30 second TV ad produced to highlight the inauthentic nature of Romney’s political beliefs. A second ad, “Stretch Romney” will also be aired to highlight the lack of core political values held by Romney. The first dozen airings of the commercials will begin airing on WMUR TV in Manchester after Saturday night’s debate.

Republican and Democrats across the spectrum can agree on one thing: Mitt Romney appears to have no core convictions. While Romney might be bright, disciplined, hard-working and successful, he doesn’t have any true and sound personal beliefs. There is something profoundly inauthentic and unreal about a man who will change his position on any issue, any time, and always from less popular positions to more popular positions. There is one word that continually pops up any time political observers gather to discuss Mitt Romney: ‘Plastic.’ We want Republican Party voters as well as Democrats and Independents to start viewing Romney as a comical character so devoid of authenticity and core values that he is fundamentally unfit for the Presidency.

I don't think your campaign will work....

it's my belief that the general public is yearning for a president who has conservative goals and business know how. Romney is flopping to become more conservative and not flipping back the other way. So for the general populace, he is going in the right direction.

Mitt Romney is a farce.

Mitt Romney wants to go to Washington for one reason satisfy his ego and further his own agenda. He is a member and conservator of the financial and political forces that have no regard for working people and their wages and jobs and well being. Like the rest of his peers he poses that our economic future is a fight between virtuous and hard-working "conservatives" versus lazy, wasteful "liberals." I'm sure there are some of both, but our economy is the result of unbridled greed, lack of regulation, off-shoring to cheap labor, and tax laws that favor the wealthy at the expense of the middle class and poor. Romney wants to eliminate taxes on capital gains and dividends...which are only 15% max now...while many working people pay 25% and more on "earned" income. Whose side is he on? His own!

Romney's "business background" was constructed from inheriting $Millions. Like Donal Trump, it's likely if he had to pull himself up by the bootstraps he would have fallen on his face. How any middle class or poor person could find enthusiasm for Romney is beyond me. But, this nation's populace has a habit of not really paying attention and being swayed by sound bites and ideology. So, I think your ad's will help. I think it was Adlai Stevenson once said of an opponent that "he would cut down a redwood so he jump up on the stump to make a speech about conserving the environment"...or close to that.

Romney has already stood on the backs of many working people and their jobs and now he's speechifying about how he want to save them? Bullshit!

Mitt's history of making

Mitt's history of making money is as a job terminator,not as a job creator. In the debate this morning, Huntsman and Gingrich exposed what a poor nominee Romney will be.
