Now that Mitt Romney has one semi-human performance under his belt, the Romney campaign is doing everything in their power to hide him from the public's view. Sure, he's making speeches, but any opportunity for anything spontaneous to happen has been killed by the campaign. Case in point:
Mitt Romney has canceled his appearance on "The View," set for Thursday, co-host Barbara Walters said during today's show. He was scheduled to appear with his wife Ann, who will still go on the show.
As Talking Points Memo points out, Romney famously announced that he was scared of The View in the middle of his 47% tape. The campaign is also hiding Paul Ryan from public scrutiny, too. The New York Times informs us that Ryan visited an empty soup kitchen and "washed" a few clean dishes for a photo op:
Afterward, Mr. Ryan stopped with his wife and children at a nearby soup kitchen. The family put on aprons and washed several large pans, though they did not appear to need washing, according to a pool reporter. There also was no one to serve at the soup kitchen, as breakfast had ended.
These schmucks are terrified that one real human being with one real question will shatter their perfectly constructed illusion, and the sad truth is that the only remaining opportunity to break this person-free bubble Republicans have built around their candidate is at tomorrow's town hall debate.
