  •  Romney's Like the Weather (3+ / 0-)

    We have a saying here in the Northeast:  "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute, it will change."

    After month's of watching Romney's "flip-flop" laden campaign, a similar saying seems applicable:

    "If you don't like Mitt's position on an issue, wait a minute, it will change."

    You can bet Romney will be all for providing Disaster relief in the coming days, regardless of what he said in the Primary debates.  Still, I hope the Obama campaign picks up the video and runs an ad or two with it.  I'm sure those who are facing this disaster will be interested to hear Romney's position on Federal Disaster relief.

    Lastly, some mild criticism of Troubador's selective quoting (i.e., "immoral", "even better").  The context he places these quotes in does not accurately reflect what Romney said in the video.  What he said in the video is adequately damaging, we don't need to stoop to exaggerations or mis-representations like the folks in right-wing crazy-land do.  Just play the video, it speaks for itself!    

    "Some men see things as they are and ask, 'Why?' I dream of things that never were and ask, 'Why not?"

      I understand your desire to be the better person, but myself, I'm no longer interested in playing nice.

      I'm ready for some smash mouth politics.

      Fuck the R's.

      has a talent not just for selective editing, but for attempted outrage generation that occasionally falls short of the genuine article.  It's bad when Fox cherry picks its quotes.  It's just as bad when our side does it -worse because we claim to be morally superior to the liars.  

      Still enjoying my stimulus package.
