Romney’s New Mantra Comes Courtesy of Popeye

August 27, 2012

Politicians draw inspiration from many quarters, but Mitt Romney may be the first to do so from Popeye the Sailor.

Romney first mentioned the cartoon in an interview that aired on Fox News Sunday. “You know, all I can do is be what I am,” Romney said. “Remember that Popeye line, ‘I am what I am and that’s all what I am.'”

Perhaps Romney thought he was on to something, because he used a variation of the line three times in a 30-minute interview with Politico, responding to questions about Republicans who want him to soften his image and try to connect with voters.
