Call it what you will...brutal takedown, evisceration, gutting, whatever. MSNBC's Martin Bashir has a few things on his mind. From the video:
Romney: I've got five boys. I'm used to people saying something that's not always true, but keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping I'll believe it.Umm...did Bashir just compare Romney to...
Bashir: That was almost clever of Mr. Romney: his sly insinuation that the President was being childish. It almost makes one forget that Mr. Romney is the one clinging desperately to more falsehoods than the father of lies.
The whole video is worth a look, as Bashir takes strong exception to the Romney family's recent trend of infantilizing the President. Josh Romney referring to him as an "obstinate child". Romney's comparison of him to his own teenage "boys". Ann Romney talking about bratty children playing in the sandbox. It's quite the pattern.
