    his own statement.

    With all due respect, in my dairy I wrote, when you add all the things together (his Business Model & other comments) -- then it is not hard for me to believe that Romney believes every single word of that statement.

    I won't argue with you, you see all of Romney's actions and comments added together one way ... and I see them differently than you.

      actually feels this way.

      However, using this clip as "evidence" of that is weak since it is at an event that is known for it's tongue-in-cheekness and that was what I was trying to point out.

        There is none.  Just because he and his dolts laugh does not make his comment tongue in cheek.

        •  It's the context of the event. (2+ / 0-)

          It's basically a roast. All elected MA officials attend and they all lampoon themselves and each other.

          Here is a live-blog of last year's event if you're interested in understanding the context more.

            The event doesn't mean the presentation fits the occasion.

            I've been to wakes -- with horrific "eulogies."  The event doesn't make the nasty "eulogies" eulogies.

              anything will be difficult b/c of the context.

              I've already invested more time in this than I care to.

              Enjoy the rest of your day.
