Rage against the machine

There is this classical  definition of insanity,  that is, to expect different result while doing the same thing.    From what Romney  allows the public to see,  his economic  vision is  a steroid enhanced  version  G.W Bush's.     Maybe  he  hopes  that there  are enough insane  voters   think  that this time the outcome will be different.  Or maybe he's hiding the details because   if people took a serious look at them    they would freak out.      Romney seems intelligent enough   to make me believe  that he   is a  demagogue  in the sense of  Mencken, i.e.,  one who preaches doctrines he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots.  The dunces that voted for W the second time    have short memories and may be buying   the nicely packaged  lotta nothing  Romney is selling.
