At the greatest political moment of his life, Mitt Romney does not have the slightest idea what to say because he does not have the slightest idea what he stands for.

Mitt Romney is one of those candidates who give politics a bad name. The kind of candidate willing to tailor his message to the office he seeks and willing to sell his ideological soul to the group that might get him what he wants, on a given day, in a given election.

To the left of Ted Kennedy? Sure, when he thinks it works running for the Senate. He abhors being compared to a continuation of Ronald Reagan? Sure, when he thinks that sells in Massachusetts.

Pro-life? Pro choice? Multiple choice? You name it, Mitt believes it, in his shape-shifting world of political opportunism, in his changing landscape of conscience, that coincides with his changing landscape of electoral ambition.

I defended John McCain when his service was under attack in South Carolina, but let's be honest today: McCain's attack on Romney's alleged support for an Iraq timetable is pure falsehood, unworthy of the Straight Talk Express.

Poor Mitt. He does not have the slightest idea how to respond, or what to say, because he does not have the slightest idea what he believes in, beyond the convenience and tactics of the moment.

Mitt Romney represents what Americans do not like about our politics today.

Mitt Romney is the convictionless politician, and his campaign will be remembered as little more than a large income transfer, from the vast wealth being lost by his heirs to the large profits for the television companies that receive the income from his advertising buys.

Mitt Romney is the nowhere man, and in the great political crisis of his life, he has nothing to say. He gives the voters no reason to believe, because for voters to believe in him, he must believe in something.
