Romney: “It’s very easy to excite the base with incendiary comments” (VIDEO)

-snip-

Given Romney’s track record of political opportunism, what would happen if you could prove to him statistically that calling Obama a socialist would attract independents in the general election instead of driving them away? Would Mitt still object to using that term on principle or would it be time for a second look at red meat? That is to say, how much of his smugness in the clip is justified by being genuinely above-the-fray and how much of it is just a pose aimed at dismissing Santorum as a cheap rhetorical bottom-feeder.

Sounds like you're finally coming around, Willard. Better get at it then. ;)

McCain without the excitement.

I always kind of thought the GOP kept McCain around so the Dems wouldn't feel bad about having crazy old Uncle Howie (Dean) in the closet. A marxist given to apoplectic seizures -- they even LOOK alike. At least the Dems were smart enough not to nominate THEIRS to the presidency. [facepalm] OTOH, I think that's what half the GOPe thinks they're there for; to keep the National Socialists permanently and safely in power.

**know the truth**

Then I guess he joins ranks with Pontius Pilate in asking Jesus Christ, “What is truth?”

Good point, McCain hates Republicans.

And he especially hates conervative Republicans.

Remember, when we beat back amnesty, we were "assholes".

I cannot believe I voted for the man in 2008. Well, actually, I voted for Palin.
