I’ve been heard to say that perhaps we need a robot president, and Mitt Romney might be just the right robot. But I have to admit that robots just don’t make good candidates. The robot could still win because of a “Black Swan” or the grinding of the negative fundamentals, but he’s not helping himself. Disappointing. I guess I’ll have to look to the human race in the future when it comes to be appealing to an electorate of humans.
Addendum: I want to be clear on one issue: people are overreacting right now. Romney still has a realistic shot to win. But it is a longer shot than he had one week ago. The right direction/wrong direction measure is not looking good.
