Mildred Purse offers Expletive Therapy to Mitt Romney

Among Mildred Purse's accomplishments is an uncanny ability to help the mentally deprived. Recognizing that Mitt Romney does possess mental abilities, she offers him a formula for attaining peace of mind as he tries to survive without suffering a massive implosion. 

Here is what you do. Governor. When you encounter a group that is jobless hit them with the marriage is a man and a woman thing. Then instead of talking on, pause and stare at them with a quizzical expression on your face. Suggesting sympathy. Stay cool. When the media ask you what was up in there, you say, Listen, I never pull any punches. I am the same yesterday today and tomorrow. Then stare at them. And before they can come back at you, drop few choice expletives they will have to bleep.

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name).
