Frank Rich on Tavis Smiley: Mitt Romney Is Acting Phony

By

New York columnist Frank Rich appeared on Tavis Smiley last night to discuss how GOP robot presidential candidate Mitt Romney is fruitlessly attempting to remake himself into a regular guy by loosening his collar a tad. "Romney is the most transparent phony," Rich said. "He's rolling up his shirtsleeves, he's letting a few pieces of hair fall out of place, a little less hair gel, and we're supposed to believe he's Tom Joad in The Grapes of Wrath." This Romney-as-average-Joe-at-the-unemployment-office shtick is really getting old.
