Mittens has to sell himself

You don’t buy a pair of Mittens based on how they feel on someone else. You buy them based on how they feel on you. Mitt Romney will have to get from behind his wife’s skirt and Christie’s girth to sell himself.

What do you think? Were tonight’s speeches enough to sell you on Mitt Romney? Do we really care about how much Ann loves him or what see believes to be his ability to connect? Was Chris Christie’s speech an endorsement of mitt or an acceptance speech for the 2016 GOP nomination?

One Response to Mittens has to sell himself

  1. Kenneth Ciszewski says:

    Of course he has to sell himself, as does Obama. I used to work with a small businessman who once told me, “People buy the salesperson first, the company second, the product third.” By that logic, if people don;t like Romney, they won’ t “buy” the GOP, and they certainly won’t “buy” the GOP agenda.

    But Romney has to sell himself personally. All the testimonials in the world won’t sell him if he doesn’t sell himself.
