#1 Let's hope "ooooh! Shiny!" distractions don't work. It's all the lying lefty socialist loser has

#3 AllBeChe mourning newz had that very theme running today. Embarrassing...no not because it is inaccurate but because it is ineffective and three days behind the meme.
I knew bullies. I fought bullies. Romney is no bully. Just ask Bully Pulpit.

#4 Read a joke online a few weeks back...a liberal, a moderate, and a conservative walk into a bar; bartender says, "What'll ya have, Mitt?" That kinda summarizes the guy for me. That being said, as The Holy Blogfaddah teaches, anything - anything at all - is orders of magnitude better than the empty-suited communist Hugo Chavez-wannabe currently defiling the White House. Compared to Ogabe, Mitt's the political offspring of Abe Lincoln and Dwight Eisenhower, with a dollop of Sarah Palin thrown in for a little spice.
I'm also hopeful that Mitt's not going to make the same stupid phuecking mistake that McCain and Palin did in '08 - that is, thinking that the Obama lapdogs of the MSM will give him anything remotely resembling a fair shake. I think that he and his advisers realize that the MSM's the enemy, and that they'll have to work up other means of getting their message out.

#5 Well, at least now we know how far he will go, how much he will evolve, and what he will do... to stay in office.

#7 McCain was ahead at one point too. In fact, when Romney ran against Kennedy for the MA Senate seat, he blew a lead in that race as well.

#8 As a Massaholic I am familiar with Mittens. He has never been what would call ideologically consistent. Given MAs penchant for socialist proclivities that's the way Mitt bent.
My one hope for the last year has been that the Tea Party type Repubs. take over both houses of Congress. That should be enough to get Mitt bowing in the correct direction.

No it wasn't McCain, it was Palin who was ahead; Obama was ahead all along until the Palin effect then there was the banaking crash and that plus Mcain's stupidity on the dabate issue put him ahead.

I'd vote for a syphilitic camel before I'd vote for Bambi, Ricky.
Syphilis can be cured.
Stupid socialism can't. :-(
