'Romney Campaign'- Cliche' Ridden Narrative With No Originality
Have you ever read a book that was a clear imitation of another you'd read? Nothing new but the characters...same plot and very predictable?
Yes, the Romney campaign has failed to thrill and is nothing more than a cliche' ridden narrative.
For Americans that like Robert Ludlum, and something more than that which would only entertain the average 4th grader, don't bother to tune into a Romney? Ryan event.
That's the challenge with the Republican ideology. They need more adjectives to explain how and why. They need more character development before they are ready for prime time.
Maybe this explains why they need expensive ad guys and lots of corporate money in order to gloss over the lack of substance.
Like any movie trailer that looks exciting but uses all the best scenes in the movie to entice box office results, Romney doesn't deliver either. Some thought by adding Paul Ryan, he would excite a reluctant base to go see the movie, my guess is that the opening weekend box office receipts won't reimburst the handler's production costs even with the DVD sales included.
In case you're puzzled about what the cliche -ridden narrative is, Daniel Rigney has compiled them in his,
" A Treasury of Republican Cliches"
"After much prayerful and financial consideration, I have decided to throw my hat into the ring for the Republican nomination for President of the United States.
I have a simple thirteen-point platform which speaks to the conscience of social conservatives and economic libertarians alike.
First, I stand firm in defense of freedom, liberty, liberty, freedom and liberty.
Second, I defer to no one in my staunch defense of the second half of the second amendment.
Third, I favor immigration reform, whatever that term may mean to you.
Fourth, I am for free enterprise and against socialism, unless free enterprise is global and destroys American jobs. Then I am for the American worker. But not the unionized kind.
Fifth, I am against government and for business. I am against Social Security and Medicare unless it directly affects your grandmother.
Sixth, I am for a strong defense. I believe in an increase in the military budget, and also a massive reduction in federal spending.
Seventh, I believe the greatest threat to America is the federal deficit, followed closely by atheism and foreign religions.
Eighth, I am for the interests of both the middle class and the job creators. The poor need to quit whining and get a job.
Ninth, I’m against every form of whining except tax whining.
Tenth, I believe in The Individual. I believe in Individual Responsibility. Did I mention I’m for freedom liberty, liberty, freedom and liberty?
Eleventh, I believe that the sanctity of life begins at conception and ends at birth. After birth, everyone is responsible for making good choices. Did I mention my firm and sincere belief in free will and individual responsibility?
Twelfth, I’m against social planning unless it is done by corporate advertisers, real estate developers and highway construction firms.
Finally, and most importantly, I’m for flying the American flag at every possible opportunity, especially in front of car dealerships both domestic and foreign.
Thank you for your vote. May God bless you if you vote Republican. "
