The same cannot not be said for Mitt Romney, who completely reinvented himself, contradicting his previous positions on issues and saying things that were totally false. If people couldn’t trust him before, how in the world could they trust him after his totally hypocritical performance in that debate?
He took his etch-a-sketch strategy to a new extreme, proving once again that he will say anything he thinks will help him to get elected, often to the embarrassment even of his surrogates who are continually having to reinterpret their fearless leader’s remarks. “What he meant to say was. . .”
It is a mystery to me why any politically knowledgeable woman would want to switch her support from Obama to Romney. Women’s rights under a Romney presidency are in just as much danger following the debate as they were before the debate. Medicare as we know it would still end, and the wealthiest one percent would still be getting a huge tax break at the expense of the middle class under the Romney/Ryan tax plan.
And no matter how Mitt now tries to explain away or excuse his insulting remarks about forty-seven percent of Americans, people know he meant what he said when he thought he was in safe company.
Is there any worry that Mr. Biden might say something inappropriate? Not among the Obama team! They have said “Let Joe be Joe!”
Which means it should be a lively debate!
