Of the litany of things I ever considered regarding Romney, "wimp" never had any part of it.

On the other hand, I've seen Obama throw a ball.

That's why all the newstands put Newsweek right next to Bikers and Babes. Same clientele, they know they're likely to get a twofer sale.

Yeah, as if Obummer is Captain Superbutch.

LOL/and so true. . .

Am betting; Mitt, looks a whole lot better than Obama; when taking aim with a baseball - or tossing a football. . .and that he rides a man's bike and not a girls - as Obama is in the habit. Bet too; that Mitt does not give a 'flighty' wave; and that he can 'do' a real Military salute.

(We know he has 'five boys'; and has a beautiful wife. . .nuff said.)

Most of here; 'get the real picture' of Obama; the one who 'ducks when Michelle roars'; and who fears the truth, of himself.

The real measure of a man/President; is one who can be be humbled by the 'power'; not inflated. One who knows humility; but is never weak. A man who has courage; not bravado; and all the 'inauthentic' that goes with it. A man who can laugh at himself; while sparing others. That is 'authentic' strength; the kind Obama has absolute NO experience; or recognition of.

THAT said; Mitt needs to work on his 'weeny image'! He is of the 'old school'; and so the 'wrong school' on 'making nice' - as if this, were a 'winning' MO.

In today's billious; dangerous; enemy-filled world; and in light of the immediate ideological threats we face from an 'American' President; and All His Men; we need the truth and courage of conviction to speak it; not just 'word of it'. And not just those words; 'nicely put'. . .

Yes. Very positive choice. I like him Thanks. Hope he is on my ballot. I will vote for Senate and certain local stuff. My Rep is a stripy pants Rino who makes me sick.

Doesn’t Newsweek realize this cover brings Romney’s opposition to mind? Don’t they realize that Romney is Macho Man compared to the simpering, whiney, prissy girlie-man who presently lives in our White House?

It is a hoot when the posers of the pussycat press call someone else a ‘wimp’.
It is like Wally Cox calling Urkel a wimp.
How many subscribers did Newsweek lose today, 200 or so, each day, all year?
Newsweek is not even a good cat box liner.

A man doesn't build the sort of estate Mitt has built being a "wimp." It takes iron to be a success in the financial world--a different sort of iron from that one displays on the battlefield or the gridiron, but real toughness to be sure.

The clowns at NewsWeek who wrote this garbage don't know anything more about manliness than Obama does about being a successful president.

If Romney is a wimp then Obama is the May Queen.

Could they make those ‘wimp’ letters any bigger? Newsweak was once sold (as a company) for less than the cost of a single copy. They buyers got gypped.

By that measure of a rich man’s son, a presidential candidate’s son becoming rich, then actually becoming president of the United States shows toughness in that arena as well.

Both men are wimps outside of the office.

Definition of W.I.M.P.

WIMP [wɪmp]acronym for

1. (Electronics & Computer Science / Computer Science) windows, icons, menus (or mice), pointers: denoting a type of user-friendly screen display used on small computers a WIMP system

2.A subatomic particle that has a large mass and interacts with other matter primarily through gravitation. [w(eakly) i(nteracting) m(assive) p(article).]

So is Romney a user friendly guy, whose gravitas makes others prone to cooperate with him?

This is funny. Its not like the whole country hasn’t figured out what is in the White House these last three and a half years.

Newsweek has gone from embarrassment to punchline. Does anyone actually buy it anymore? Really?

...................”Magazines and newspapers have been trying to adapt to a world in which readers get more of their information from free websites and advertisers funnel more of their marketing budgets to less expensive alternatives online.

Mounting losses prompted The Washington Post Co. in 2010 to sell Newsweek for $1 to stereo equipment magnate Sidney Harman. Harman died the following year.

Before he died, he placed Newsweek into a joint venture with IAC’s The Daily Beast website in an effort to trim the magazine’s losses and widen its online audience.”

Obama, Romney and a Newsweek reader walk into a bar. “What’ll it be, gents?” asks the bartender.

“I’m a Moslem, I don’t drink alcohol. I’ll take Diet Coke.” says Obama.

“Coming right up.”

“I’m a Mormon, I don’t drink alcohol or caffeine. Make mine a 7 Up, “ says Romney.

“Yessir. And what can I get for you?” he asks the Newsweek reader.

“I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today. “

Maybe Newsweek would make a profit if it became a parody magazine?

Wait, it already is. Never mind.
