Sun Setting on Son?
Maureen Dowd's Sunday column just up at the NYT, and borrowing from Hemingway she suggest the son is not rising. "As a candidate, Mitt Romney is awkward, off-putting and hollow, so bad that if he were a Bain company, he would shut himself down." Much of the column places blame on Stuart Stevens, the Mitt adviser with the TV and movie-writing past. Oddly, he is still around--even though Mitt likes to "fire people." But we also hear about Ann Romney's "entitlement"--feeling it's okay to tell complaining GOPers to "shut up."
