Is Mitt Romney Hinted to in Nevuat Hayeled as a Geula Sign?
I had discussed Governor Romney in the past as someone who comes from Esav.
With that in mind, let's take a look at a certain stanza in Nevuat Hayeled:
However, notice the alternative girsa of מפרש באת ומן - not וזמן. And using the lectio difficilior rule (which I must admit I never heard of until I started reading parshablog), we will assume that this is the correct girsa.ודין לכון סימן,
מפרש באת וזמן,
כד יפיק מן,
מדברא מלך ושמו מרומן.
The translation is thus - according to the Peirush there:
And this will be an explicit sign for you that with the letters of ומ"ן, when from the field [i.e. from Esav] will come out a king and his name is Meroman.Now, Mitt Romney has the ומנ in his name: רומני. No other President that came before him had this letter sequence.
To fit רומני into מרומן, one can either say that:
a) The מ of מרומן is a prefix that means "from", which has a similar meaning as the suffix of י.
b) The מ of מרומן is an abbreviation of his middle name that acts like his first name: מיט [Mitt] while the י at the end of רומני is extraneous.
c) It's telling you a possible name, but the essential part is the ומ"נ.
Anyways, if I can be so bold, I'd like to say that Romney is the ultimate sign, but the previous signs are mentioned right afterwards:
ומן תמן מתרען,
The commentary says that this means, "When his son will arise when he is mighty, from there, he will connect with his allies, while towers and fortifications will break."
One need not be a geula blogger to guess that this is referring to George W. Bush.
This is followed by:
כד ימלוך בחזקא,
מטא קץ מלכותא די אכלה ומדקא.
Again, according to the commentary there, this means, "When a Shetuki man - who is not of the lineage of the king - will arise to rule by force, the end of the kingdom of the fourth beast, of whom it says (Daniel 7:7) 'it devoured and broke in pieces', will have arrived."
A Shetuki (according to the first Mishna in the 4th chapter of Kiddushin) is someone who knows his mother, but does not know his father. While our current President knows who his father is and even wrote a book about him, the father was apparently not in his life very much. (More can be said about this, but I will leave that for others to comment.)
And that brings us back to Meroman/Romney.
The next stanza has "a request from Binyamin", but enough for now.
