Romney says his mere presence will bring back the American economy

The Bishop speaks.

The Daily Dish latches on to another part of the now infamous secret video of Mitt Romney telling rich donors earlier this year that the 47% of Americans who support Barack Obama are all welfare queens who don’t have jobs, and don’t want jobs.

“My own view is that if we win on November 6th, there will be a great deal of optimism about the future of this country. We’ll see capital come back and we’ll see — without actually doing anything — we’ll actually get a boost in the economy.”

Not too full of ourselves, are we?

There’s almost a religious self-importance to Romney’s comments.  Capital will come back (does he mean business will start to invest more?) simply because the Great Romney has spoken.

This is why Mitt Romney doesn’t have any specifics to his policies.  He doesn’t think he needs specifics.  He quite seriously believes that he has some magical powerful to simply bring unemployment down to 4% again.

He doesn’t need a plan. He’s the messiah.

What a pathetically disturbing view of one’s self.
