Romney's Inauthenticity

Jonah Goldberg: "As I've been writing for a very long time, Romney has an authentic inauthenticity problem. In other words, he seems like he's faking things even when he's not. He may take positions he doesn't hold in his heart, but all politicians do that. The problem is that the vast majority of the time he's no more passionate or convincing about the positions he almost surely does hold in his heart."

"More to the point, fair doesn't have anything to do with it. Politics is about persuasion and he's simply not persuasive. I'm rapidly losing confidence that as a general election candidate he would be able to win over the crucial voters he would need to seal the deal."
