I’ve spent the last two weeks getting licensed to work in a new field. Mitt Romney has spent the last two weeks since Rick Santorum dropped out of the race trying to convince the American public that he should replace Barack Obama as president of the United States in November.
It has not been pretty.
The topic for the radio segment I taped yesterday with WEAA’s Sean Yoes was “why does Mitt Romney lie so much?” I’d like to say I was surprised by the number of web articles and blogs I found about Romney’s penchant for telling whoppers while prepping for the show because I have not been paying as much attention as usual to politics this month. But the reality is, I had already accepted this trait as one of his shortcomings back when I repeatedly said on this very blog that he would be the Republican nominee. Micheal Tomasky over at the Daily Beast accurately describes why, despite my unabashed support for President Obama’s reelection, I really wanted Romney to win the GOP nomination:

I will be on the radio tonight at 8:20 pm EST with Sean Yoes, senior reporter at The Afro American, giving my own two cents on the Trayvon Martin killing. Yoes is the host of "The WEAA/AFRO First Edition", an hour-long political talk show on Baltimore's NPR affiliate WEAA-FM (88.9 FM), which airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m.
We will talk about the Zimmerman family response, the George Zimmerman media proxy Joe Oliver, and the outrage among African Americans online and offline about a terrible case of injustice "that is interpreted as a metaphor for how white America feels about black America. This is one show you will not want to miss!!
