Right-o, after campaigning first for the nomination, and then for the presidency, for well-over a year in full focus of dozens of televised debates, hundreds of millions of dollars spent on campaign ads, hundreds of interviews and more, the public still didn't get to see Mitt Romney for who he was.
And it was the media's fault for that. And the campaign operatives. Everyone's fault -- except Mitt Romney's.
Of course, the reality is that time and again, polls showed that the more people saw of Mitt Romney, the less they liked him. The reality is that the public got quite enough, thank you very much, of seeing who Mitt Romney was. Including a behind-the-scenes look speaking to a fundraiser about 47% of the country. And the country decided that for many reasons they didn't like the fellow enough to vote for him.
Apple graciously said it would refund the charges. And the parents said that their 5-year-old's iPad privileges had been revoked. No word on what punishment the parents are giving themselves.
