I’m Not a Career Politician. I’m a Career Candidate…

Candidate Weathervane’s back at making silly statements:

“For me, politics is not a career…”

This is an interesting statement from someone who has either been in politics or unsuccessfully trying to get into politics for decades. The sentence is clearly missing a second half:

“… despite how much I’ve tried to make it one.”

His first unsuccessful campaign was in 1994 (Massachusetts Senate seat). Then, from 2002-7, he was either running for or being Governor of Massachusetts. Since then, he’s been running for President. So that’s roughly a decade of his life spent in or around politics, stretched over a longer period of time.

“Career politicians got us into this mess and they simply don’t know how to get us out.”

And yet, Romney’s prescriptions have either been ridiculed as being unrealistic, potentially damaging, or lacking in concrete details.
