’s art and science of hiding in plain sight
Anchor for Allvoices
The campaign period of 2012 U.S presidential elections has unraveled more about the person of former Massachusetts Governor and GOP presumptive presidential nominee candidate Willard Mitt Romney. However, as the campaign still goes on, it has revealed less than what had been know about him. Romney appears to every American voter as a “reality man” but behind such identity, he is a deeply “hidden man.”
A reality man like he is, Romney is a character very much familiar about the owners of Washington. He knows well that Washington is owned by global private banks and he is one of them. He becomes more real being Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee candidate. He is a known bet of Wall Street and as such more inclined to protect the interest of 1% than 99% America.
In the campaign trail he mouths great themes like “complete transparency,” shouts to Obama supporters, voters/would be voters for Barack and to the general American public, “the time for stonewalling is over.” He declares “Americans are entitled to know” and telling Americans deserve “a full and prompt accounting of the facts.”
Romney’s voices have been loud and clear for all Americans to hear him but they understand differently what he has been telling them. Within the lengths and breadths of Romney’s words as he treads the path of the campaign, lies hidden “lie about his past and immediate past.” He is in the state of being nagged by the American people because of his “Mormon faith. Romney’s invisible hand keeps waving at Bain Capital. The glitter of his wealth well kept in outside U.S tax paradise remains glaring and blinding to Americans.
Traces of Romney’s foot prints at Salt Lake City Olympics are no longer traceable. Paper tails of his stint as one term Massachusetts governor are rendered undecipherable.
Whenever and wherever Romney speaks in the campaign, traces of his past are being offset by his fiercest tirades against his presumptive opponent Obama. He criticizes Obama White House as one not knowing how to keep secret matters.
Despite of American public’s demands that Romney has to show records of his past business connections, profile of his hidden wealth, Olympic and gubernatorial service records, he remained deaf and pathologically unresponsive.
Romney’s unswerving resolve not to shed lights on those concerns and issues suggest that his candidacy remains in the shadow of “hidden controversies.” In Romney’s heart, soul and spirit harbor lies impregnated with absolute truth that he alone and God only knows.
Romney has developed the “art and science” of hiding secrets in plain sight.
