Hilary = France
Mitt Romney was the Republican governor of Massachusetts (2003-07) and he is now a candidate for the Republican nomination for president in 2008.
But his bid for president was dealt a minor setback this week when a powerpoint presentation outlining his strategy was leaked to the press.
The 77-slide PowerPoint presentation offers a revealing look at Romney’s pursuit of the White House, outlining a plan for branding himself, framing his competitors, and allaying voter concerns about his record, his Mormon faith, and his shifts on key issues like abortion.
Enmity toward France, where Romney did his Mormon mission during college, is a recurring theme of the document. The European Union, it says at one point, wants to “drag America down to Europe’s standards,” adding: “That’s where Hillary and Dems would take us. Hillary = France.” The plan even envisions “First, not France” bumper stickers.
