Mitt Romney Debates Himself

Mitt Romney is the most hollow of politicians, a serial panderer whose only operating principle is to say anything to get elected. Daily Kos has produced a video showing Romney debating and disagreeing with himself on stimulus, regulation, housing, taxes, teachers, health care, and bipartisanship. Watch Romney's perpetual stream of flip-flopping:

I believe it was Steve Martin who said, "Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience."

For some reason, watching that video reminded me of the quote.

Hi Jon,

Right now I'm hoping that Romney hasn't dragged the country down to his level after one debate.

Best regards,

Jeff

Perhaps we are already down to that level. When bumper sticker slogans are more effective than reasoned explanations, when you can't tell the truth for fear that voters don't want to hear it, when "zingers' are what people most remember from otherwise informative debate, I fear we get what we deserve. Pray I'm wrong.

When the term "sound bite" came around, we were already in trouble. There was no such thing during the Lincoln-Douglas debates.
