When was the last time Newsweek got it right? If they had any journalist integrity they would have run the cover below.
Being a non issue, if they wanted to do some actual journalism they might be asking why the good old boys in the RNC are scared to death of Congressman Allen West.
With Allen West as Vice President the so-called “Wimp Factor,” would never be discussed again.
Now here’s a thought!
‘Wouldn’t Get Much Sleep’ If I Worried About the Media
Mitt Romney says if he worried about what reporters thought of him, he wouldn’t get much sleep– and he’s been sleeping just fine.
Here’s how the cover should appear:
The U.S. presidential candidate told CBS’ “Face the Nation” that he isn’t sweating the upcoming Newsweek magazine cover that leads with “Romney: The Wimp Factor.”
The title reportedly continues: “Is He Just Too Insecure To Be President?“ and the article itself then likens the presidential candidate to a ”mouse” in the White House.
Romney explained that the media tried a similar criticism of President George H.W. Bush, who Romney described as “a pretty great president” and not a “wimp.” Complete article below.
Newsweek used the same exact insult, actually. According to the Associated Press, a 1987 Newsweek profile featured then-Vice President Bush with the title — “Fighting the ‘Wimp Factor.”
Asked whether he had ever been called “wimp” himself, Romney says he thinks the magazine cover is a first.
The left’s narrative appears to have run two different courses simultaneously in this regard. Romney has been portrayed as a “bully” for allegedly cutting the hair of a boy in grade school, and Obama adviser Robert Gibbs just called Romney to a “prep school bully” on Sunday.
So is it possible to be both a bully and a wimp at the same time?
