David Brooks: Romney “Is Faking It…Least Popular Candidate In History”
On Meet the Press:
Mitt Romney does not have the passion for the stuff he’s talking about. He is– he is a problem solver. I think he’s a non-ideological person running in an extremely ideological age and he’s faking it. So if I were him, I’d go to what he’s been for the last several decades of his life. He’d be– be a power point guy. Say, I’m making a sales pitch to the country. Here are the four things I’m going to reform. You don’t have to love me, but I’m going to do these four things for you. And so, I’d do a much more wonky and detailed thing than he’s done so far…
Well, he has to look at what the president’s weakness is. He’s never going to win a popularity contest. As you said, he’s least popular candidate in history.
