If; and I do mean IF; Mitt Romney were elected president; what spectacular event might we expect him to use to manipulate the nation into standing behind him. George W Bush of course; used 9/11 to propell himself to popularity and under the guise of chasing down Bin Laden (not a priority for Bush. I wonder why he was so resistant to actually punishing Osama.) While we were still waiting for our President to find and capture or kill the man who masterminded the death of thousands of American citizens; George started a war of personal vengence aginst a man who was completly unconnected with the attack; Sadaam Hussein.
This private war justified the Military Industrial Complex making billions of dollars to supply our troops; George pushing through the Patriot Act; and of course ousting Sadaam in retaliation for his insulting George’s father ten years before.
I figure Mitt will need something along the same lines to secure his place in History just as George did.
