    but the fact he even brings up any comparison of Dems asking questions about Romney's Cayman-Swiss accounts (or other accounts he has out of the country) to the lying Swiftboating in '04, is a false equivalency.   Why bring a comparison at all?

    I think he's stirring the pot to make light of the seriousness of Romney's financial history.

      on your view of Halperin.  I think the crux of the article wasn't that the attacks on Romney are "swiftboat" smears but that they are working effectively, especially in swing states.

      •  The difference is the truth vs. a lie (0+ / 0-)

        Romney's issues are factual not a smear.

        Letting Republicans run the government is like putting Atheists in charge of a church. They don't believe in it, don't care if it works - and they take no responsibility for the results.
