Thom Hartmann spoke on his liberal radio talk show today about the Republican presidential candidate’s views on where he would get his ideas if he’s elected in November.
The reason why he’s (Romney) not laid out any serious policies is because he, I think, I’m increasingly believing, maybe I’m crazy, that Romney thinks he’s divinely inspired. He thinks he’s fulfilling divine intent by becoming president, and that he doesn’t have to know what he’s gonna do because once he becomes president, he will be guided by divinity, by divine inspiration. And therefore it doesn’t matter what his policies are. And, in fact, I believe that he thinks he’s been guided by divine intent his entire life ’cause everything’s always worked out for him.
Two and two hasn’t added up in him. It might have to do with the fact that his father was a multimillionaire and the governor and the head of A.M.C. (American Motors Corporation) and all these things. Ya know he hasn’t gotten that. He was told by his mother that he was this divine being and I think he believes it himself and I think, frankly, his wife Ann believes it. Tell me I’m crazy. Tell me I’m right and tell me if you saw him last night on Univision, where he crowned himself. Really?
It’s one thing to offer an opinion. It’s another to believe that someone will take his marching orders from God. That’s extreme and disrespectful to Romney.
