Politics aside, I think “young” and “dynamic” are the last words I would use to describe Mitt Romney. For one, he’s just not young. Assuming you subscribe to time as a linear concept (you know, the way we all do), then Barack Obama will always be younger than Mitt Romney (by about 14.5 years).
And having watched several of the Republican presidential debates over the last eight months, dynamic is hardly an apt word for Mitt Romney. Although, maybe there’s some truth to it. After all, there was that whole Etch-A-Sketch fiasco.
(For what it’s worth, I think Newt was the most fun debater to watch)
