In any sane electoral system, this video would be absolutely devastating for Romney (or should that be 'eviscerating'?). Under the present system, it's just business as usual.

(H/T to Kossack @RoughAcres who alerted me to this video in THIS DIARY, which is well-worth reading)

Nonetheless, watching the whole front-bench of the Republican Party--from the frothing cadres of wingnuttery led by Huckabee to the staid and careful diehards of douchebaggery exemplified by McCain--tear strips off Romney is deeply amusing.

They appear to hate Romney even more than they hate President Obama. Check it out:


continued beneath the Boehner Orange® hairball of Republican barfworthiness

Watching Gingrich calmly call Romney a 'liar' on national television is almost as much fun as watching Donald 'To Baldly Go...' Trump unload on Mitt, calling him an incompetent whose term as Governor was a failure.

Less than a year later, these same Republicans are telling the US public that Romney is damn near perfect; that once elected, Romney will sprinkle his Magic Bain Dust® on the economy and 12 million jobs will instantly self-deport themselves from China back to the US.

So, what changed? Oh, yeah...Romney won the party's nomination.

I'll say one thing for the Republicans: they've taken to multitasking like hogs to mud; they can lie, deny your grandmother healthcare, damage the country's credit-rating, betray veterans, crawl to billionaires, deny young people education, ship US jobs to China and pick your pocket all at the same time.

Color me impressed...but not in a good way.

It's high time this party of crooks, flunkies, shills, errand boys, cheats, liars, hypocrites, nutjobs, bigots, racists, misogynists and anti-Americans becomes no more than a distant and unpleasant memory.

You know when your dog gets hit by skunk-spray? You give your dog a bath; then another; then maybe another; and that awful smell mostly goes away. But even a week later, there's a faint, barely detectable residue of skunk stink. But in time, that fades too.

I want the Republican Party to be like that smell.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
