  •  The Republican version of the DREAM ACT (11+ / 0-)

    will be the similar to Republican versions of everything else from health care to tax and budget policy to trade -  

    I expect a lot of flip flops from Romney also - he will say and do anything to win...he knows he's doing badly with both latinos and women and is going to go to big lengths to gain support.

    At this point, far more people have now been arrested for protesting Wall Street's mortgage fraud crimes than have been for committing and presiding over them.

    •  Frankly, in the Rmoney quotes I've read in (6+ / 0-)

      Diaries lately, all I hear is denial.  He seems to me to be unable to face defeat in any way.  And as he goes along he is dismissive of any and all signs suggesting defeat.  That's what I hear in his words to date.

        than most. Denial is a good explanation.
        If there is any justice, the innertubes and youtube will expose him.

      •  that's a feature, not a bug, with Republicans (1+ / 0-)

        And until somebody is willing to use the past tense in discussing what republicans do and have done, it works.
        NPR prattled on this morning about how R-Money is going to run against Obama's handing of the economy. It consists solely of pointing to the recovery and making the baseless claim that ABO (anybody but Obama) would have had a better result.
        Simply assert that the reality is worse than it is, (denial) and the fantasy world of Republican economics would have given us golden ponies.
        Until that is countered with the actual track record of what republican policies have actually wrought when implemented, his spank-fantasy is given the veneer of plausibility.
        Needless to say, NPR did not go there.

      •  Mittens in denial, yep. (0+ / 0-)

        That sums him up. The smugness, self-satisfaction and a sense of entitlement on display on that Diane Sawyer interview was unseemly. I wanted to barf when the Ann Rmoney proclaimed it's "our turn" to be in the White House.
