Mary Bancroft – Master Spy

“I can’t understand what the f–k you are saying.” The voice came from an elderly lady in the back row of my computer class. It was from Mary Bancroft, a part owner of The Wall Street Journal. She is the author of Autobiography of a Spy and was the woman behind the plot to kill Hitler, the lover of CIA chief, Allen Dulles, the lady who invited me to dinner to meet Woody Allen and, yes, Mary Bancroft was my computer student.

Now that the election is over, where are Mitt Romney’s policy meeting with Obama? Has anyone been seeking out Romney’s assistance with the Gaza crisis? And what about Romney’s self-professed near-psychic bond with Netanyahu—isn’t that needed? Has Romney weighed in on Susan Rice? Or Benghazi? No, he hasn’t.

Who needs Romney, The “what, me worry?” attitude that we saw in Romney, the over-confident candidate, we now see in Romney the private citizen.

The dying Republican Party has gotten rid of Romney, and hopes he drops out of the 24-hour news cycle as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately, for the Republicans, Romney just will not go away.

Romney briefly made the headlines last week with his comments that Obama had bought the loyalty of women, minorities, and young people with “gifts,” with “government money.” Republicans “don’t need to be saying stupid things,” Governor Bobby Jindal, commented. 

Senator Lindsay Graham could not take it anymore. The Senator  broke down completely on “Meet the Press” saying of Romney, “When you’re in a hole, stop digging. He keeps digging. We’re in a death spiral with Hispanic voters because of rhetoric around immigration. And candidate Romney, in the primary, dug the hole deeper.”

While absent minded doddering McCain yaps away at the Benghazi affair so much that he misses key Senate hearings on the subject, as economist wannabe (who voted for both wars) Paul Ryan mourns for his vouchers (to make the elderly pay for those wars), and Graham and others realize that the Republican Party is no more, where is Romney?

Well, Romney did get an invitation to the White House. Just in case Obama wasn’t coming forth with a decent lunch, before setting off for the White House, Romney visited McDonalds, for a garment-busting McFlurry milkshake.

He was still in the news—there is more of Romney that the Republican Party has to endure.

We see Romney, pumping his own gas, or coming out of the theater after seeing the new “Twilight” movie— (vampires) which they attended last the weekend.

Then there was his trip to Disneyland with his wife and grandchildren where they had a giggly good time riding on Luigi’s Magic Tires.

Romney just will not go away. His antics belong on the comic page—if such a page still exists.

 While Romney fiddles, the Republican Party burns.
