Writes Jeff Deist:
I have a serious, straightforward question for LRC readers: have you ever seen a Mitt Romney bumper sticker?
I never have.
This guy literally has done nothing but run for President since 2007, and in all those years (both in California and the Washington, DC, area) I honestly have never seen a bumper sticker, T-shirt, or yard sign for Romney. The only place you see any Romney paraphernalia at all is at staged political events or primary/delegate events. Maybe my experience is unique but I doubt it.
Contrast this with ubiquitous Ron Paul shirts, hoodies, bracelets, signs, banners, etc.-- often homemade and quite creative.
Mitt Romney is a terrible politician, a terrible campaigner, and a terrible speaker. He engenders no enthusiasm, loyalty, nor interest anywhere.
