POLL: What Do You Think of Newsweek's Mitt Romney 'Wimp' Cover?

The controversial cover story received a ton of attention this week.

Newsweek received a ton of criticism this week for its latest cover, which featured GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney next to the headline: "Romney: The Wimp Factor." It then went on to ask if Romney is "just too insecure" to be president.

"Romney is the genuine article: a true wimp," author Michael Tomasky argued in his cover story.

For his part, Romney said the cover didn't bother him. He said the news magazine tried the same thing with former President George H.W. Bush, someone he considers "anything but" a wimp.

What do you think? Did Newsweek's cover cross the line, or was the Romney "wimp" story fair game? Vote in our poll below, and leave a comment with your thoughts.

One only need look at Mitt's military record during the Viet Nam War to see he is a coward. The military records of his FIVE SONS, who were between the ages of 18 and 31 in the years following 9/11 is proof positive the (coward) whimp factor does not fall far from the tree.

So you can't respond to the first sentence of the article, Jim? You can't say anything positive about Romney?
