I have many weaknessess. I love too much. I try too hard. I am too perfect. That is what you should say when asked this in job interviews. It both sounds sincere and is very winning.
Here are some more wonderful responses to the "What is your greatest weakness" question of which we should all be aware, since these people want to be our President. Also, these are hilarious.
John Edwards: My greatest weakness is that I care too much, Tim. For 54 years, I've been fighting. I emerged from the womb with my dukes up, ready to do battle with every fiber of my day-old being.
Hillary Clinton: My greatest weakness is that I get impatient — impatient with people who don't care as much about children as I do.
Barack Obama: My greatest weakness? Sometimes I misplace stuff. I'm a little disorganized. It's probably a good thing I'm not in charge of my own schedule.
Are these people serious? I don't even know them personally and I can come up with some better weaknesses than these. At least Obama had the sense to mention a real weakness, not just a strength dressed up as a "weakness." Ok, it is a dumb question that is not going to yield a great answer, but come on.
Go Mitt. Your greatest weakness is that you are a member of a faith unpopular with the Republican base. Let's hope you can overcome it.
