    Using some of my own (misguided) family members as an example, they had nothing good to say about Romney for months and months--"Obamneycare," being a "RINO" while governing Mass., flip-flopping on the issues, etc.  But as soon as it became clear that he was the GOP national/FOX choice, it all turned to "He's not great, but anybody has to be better than Obama.  Still haven't heard back yet on how he has to be "better" when just a few months ago the argument was that he was Obama's mirror image in many important venues.  

    This has nothing to do with logic, education, or knowledge.  Blatant contradiction is perfectly acceptable in the face of tearing down an "unamerican" "socialist" who is "looking to destroy the country."  

    My favorite part in it all is how PATRIOT, the NSA wiretapping, Gitmo, etc, were totally defensible under Bush, but gosh, gee, that's infringing on the constitution now.  Gasp!
