The Invisible Man
truthdig.com — With the Republican presidential nomination sewed up, Mitt Romney is now pretending to be acceptable to the moderate voters he will need to win in November. Gone are the "severely" conservative promises of the primary. He fakes to the center, although his ultimate policy goal is on the right, dismantling the safety net, wiping out the health care law and assuring the wealthy of continued low taxes. Or is it? What does he really believe? In Romney’s present incarnation, he is fixated on joblessness — blaming President Barack Obama without offering any solutions of his own. This is a path designed to appeal to moderates as well as conservatives. But he can’t fool the true conservative believers. The right doesn’t trust Romney. Nor will the center, so vital to his campaign. That’s because, by Election Day, Americans will still have no idea where he would take them. Hopefully, they will see him for what he is — a hollow man.
