Mittsterpiece Theatre




John McCain has launched a last-minute assault on Myth Romney, highlighting his gymnastic ability on the issues and leaving the Mittster to splutter about "distortions and flailing attacks."

And if that wasn't enough for Floridians making a last-minute decision, the Patriot Ledger weighs in with a look at Romney's economic record in Massachusetts. For example:

Romney’s claim that he balanced the state budget ‘‘without raising taxes’’ needs plenty of caveats. Romney and his revenue chief, Alan LeBovidge, presided over a steady series of what they referred to as measures to close ‘‘tax loopholes’’ for companies. To many of the companies that had to pay more taxes, those loophole closings sure felt like tax increases.
Nothing new under the sun for Our Man Myth.

Shhhh we don't want him to lose Florida! If he wins Florida, he'll probably win the nomination... and may or may not crack 40% when it comes to the general. LOL.

McCain would actually be a challenge, so let's hope - for all our sakes - he can't get through the primary.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who started thinking that way!
