For his $7,050 tab, Romney was rewarded with this praise from the mayor via Dyer:
"I think it's self-evident. [It tells you] who is accountable for their deeds who isn't, who's accountable for their actions and who keeps blaming everybody else." Oh? As in this historic self-evident non-sequitur from Mitt: "The economy is getting better but Obama made it worse."? The mayor said Mitt's visit was"just electric."But I should not be so harsh on the mayor, whose hometown we once shared for nearly a quarter-century. We've watched a once moderate operative settle comfortably into the farthest reaches of the Republican Right (Tea Party) on his politically fail-safe suburban island. It's a small field compared to Akron, but, look, it does provide a living for the mayor and joy for the Summit County GOP brass, including Republican Chairman Alex Arshinkoff.
But before I get out of the way, I would mention to Dyer:
"Bob, anybody who reads my stuff would have no problem identifying the candidate I'm voting for. Would you allow us one guess as to your choice?
Meantime, did I hear the mayor say, "I am Don Robart and I approve Dyer's message."?
