There were rumors that Team Mitt had benched his wife after her meltdown on Iowa radio last week–rumors that I hoped would prove to be false. Good news. Ann Romney (Mitt’s secret weapon) is back on the trail.
Towards the end of the week she gave an interview to a radio station in Nevada and voiced a concern that I think every American should have (emphasis added):
Asked what her primary worry would be should her husband succeed in defeating President Obama on Nov. 6, Mrs. Romney replied, “You know, I think my biggest concern, obviously, would just be for his mental well-being.”
And Ann, I’m a bit worried about Mitt now. It seems to me that his emotional balance and mental well-being are already in the flashing red light zone. I mean, have you heard some of the crazy things he says? He doesn’t seem to be able to tell truth from fiction and he sorta seems to be living a fantasy world.
So Ann, please get Mitt some help. He thinks he is running against the guy in the empty chair that Clint chatted with the night he accepted the GOP nomination. In a few days, he’ll have to debate the real President Obama and I’ m afraid that the cognitive dissonance of the moment will break him long before he has the chance to have the reality of the Presidency crush him.
Better for the world that Mitt has his meltdown now. Thanks Ann, for the well timed warning.
