  •  here's what I want to see (8+ / 0-)

    Ask Romney if he considers himself a moderate or does he still consider himself severely conservative.

    Just. that.

    Here's why: obviously Romney is trying to appear more moderate, but he does it in a cloud of fuzzy talk and hand-waving.

    The RW doesn't care.  They want a winner.  If Romney says we need more teachers, they look at the scoreboard first before they have a reaction.  If it looks like Romney scored, in front of a national audience while sharing a stage with Obama, well, then that's just fine with them.  As long as he is winning, they will renounce almost all of their 'beliefs'.

    The one thing his base will absolutely NOT accept though is for Romney to actually say "I'm a moderate".  And the one thing Romney cannot say during a debate is "I'm severely Conservative"

      The word moderate.

      And what do you think he'd say? There's a saying that goes: never ask a question you're not ready to hear the wrong answer to.

      There are 100 weasel ways for him to answer that question - any of which could fuck us.

      His base has no where to go and he knows it. I think this would be a huge mistake.

      The best thing is to make people nervous about what he'd actually do. Anxiety and untrustworthiness based on his own opposing position on virtually every issue.

      For the record, I am not a member of Courtesy Kos. Just so you know. Don't be stupid. It's election season. My patience is short.
