    ...Obama's flip-flops...about the second week of November?

    This beating the dead GOP nominee horse is getting REAL tiresome. It's all I read here, or about half of it. And one more thing: A candidate willing to LOOK at both sides of an issue is what I WANT, and presumably YOU DO, TOO.

    It's just boring. This tactic for the blog is not working. Nobody's going to vote for Romney; who's taking these stories and using them in the lamestream media as attack fodder?

    Romney will be a decent opponent for Obama because of his LIBERAL RECORD, and his willingness to be bent to the political winds by a Democratic legislature. But he won't win, so it's all MOOT. As are your non-stop headache-inducing ads. And I speak as a near-ten-year-long read of the site, long before its present form...

    I guess you're railing at the wind, as I am...

      Look at both sides, sure, but take both sides?  In the same conversation?

      Used to be Mitt would separate his flips from his flops with a year.   Now, the funny op ed in about Quantum Mittanics seems all too true: he's on all sides at the same time.

      You bet.  Wait by the phone for the call.

      Romney is campaigning to be President SuperBain; his cure is to cut wages, end pensions, let companies go bankrupt, and let the assets of production go dark or be sold to China. He really thinks thats the best of all possible Americas.

    •  Okay, you're not going to vote (8+ / 0-)

      for him, and I'm not going to vote for him -- but we both likely know people who are at least considering voting for him because he has the requisite [R] after his name. We need all the ammunition we can get to either get them to change their minds or at least leave the Presidential box blank.

    •  Actually, I don't find Jed's diaries (6+ / 0-)

      the least bit "tiresome" or "boring".  The "tactic", as you so glibly call it, just might work better if we got into election mode and raised a ruckus re: RMoney's pathological lying and his Rovian "I'm rubber, you're glue"tactic and strategy. This is the time to define him while he appears to be a lock for the nomination, he still is forced to spend his RMoney against Santorum.
