Mitt's Latest Flip Flops
Mitt in 2008
“There’s no way that Sen. McCain is going to be able to come to New Hampshire and say that he’s the candidate that represents change — that he’ll change Washington. He is Washington,” Romney said on the campaign trail Friday.
Mitt in 2002:
“One of the reasons the people of America honor Sen. McCain and why I'm so proud to have him standing with me today is that he has brought American values to the debate on the issues we care about,” Romney said at the time. “He has always stood for reform and change.”
Meanwhile, Mitt's fans have taken to flailing wildly. Hugh Hewitt, who will again become one of my favorite talk show hosts once McCain wins the nomination, attempts to link
the stock market decline of about 2% to investor nervousness over the outcome of the Iowa caucuses:
How much of the decline is due to the investor class rejecting the idea that any good news comes out of either Obama-McCain or Obama-Huckabee?
He takes a good pummeling in the comments:
Hugh, you are unbelievable. Now the market is tanking (the sky is falling! the sky is falling!) because your boy got hammered last night. Get a grip.
This is the typical tripe I expected from Hewitt the day after his boy took it in the shorts.
Why not extoll the virtues of McCain or Huckabee (I know its probably physically impossible for you to praise the latter)? Why not accentuate the positive of these two candidates?
Hewitt can't do it because he's shown himself to be a sellout to Slick Mitty.
It seems Hugh thinks that a plurality of Iowans are too stupid to know that they should have voted for Mitt Romney and that the media conspired to bolster Huckabee b/c he is the weakest Republican and Iowans fell for it. I have a different idea. I think a plurality of Iowans voted for Huckabee and not Romney b/c Romney is a phony.
