    I said to my sister in conversation last night "if he ends up being their nominee" and she was surprised that I even thought he wouldn't be. This is swiftboating by his own people, if you can say Mitt has "people" (other than employees).

      seems a bit coincidental.

      I do believe that the Obama campaign is capable of cutting an opponent off at the knees. I dont underestimate Axelrod.

      And, in fact, I think Axelrod's crew may have been tipped that this was coming out (pun slightly intended), which led to the president's timing on his marriage equality announcement.

      I've been saying since then that it just feels like the timing of president's statement was tied to Grenell's being ousted. I hoped it was simple outrage, but am not so naive to assume there wasn't more to it. This could be that link.

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

        It is obvious Romney knew, or else Ann wouldn't have played sock puppet (but in a T shirt that cost $990).

        Obama, not so obvious.  The gay question was bound to come up with Grenell and Amendment One.
