Story on Mitt Romney's teen years prompts his apology for "stupid things" he did in high school. Emily Schmidt reports.
A Democratic strategist is taking some major head over a comment about Mitt Romney's wife.
More than half a century ago (yikes!) I got my first job on Wall Street. I was still a teen and would go to college later.
I noticed something right away. There were no women on Wall Street. Well, ok, there were some. There were old spinster ladies who never married and worked as "private secretaries"; and there were a few hot young college grads, mostly from the Ivy League working as "assistants".
Almost all of them lived in Connecticut, the Elysian fields of Northern New Jersey or in small studios in tonier parts of Manhattan. None of them lived in Brooklyn. Read more
Mitt Romney Today
I guess that really is more socially acceptable than my name for Mitt Romney……………
…………………………………………….”Mitt-the-(word that rhymes; but Fid doesn’t allow on this sight)………(Has four letters?)……..(One of them is “H”?). Just kidding. I know you get it.
Here is what I don’t get; and I’ll bet you don’t either.
How can so many people totally ignore his repeated Flip-Flopping. Read more
For once, Romney keeps his own mouth shut
about Cadillacs, NASCAR owners & $10,000 bets,
yet his aide's mistake messes Mitt's momentum
as "etch-a-sketch" becomes the new "flip-flop."
Santorum refuses to shake anything up,
digging deeper in his anti-sex devotion,
doubling-down with radical right diatribes
and drawing the race directly into the doldrums.
Meanwhile Ron Paul & Newt Gingrich
continue to hold their own…and not much more.
Faced with these choices, even Republicans
turn down Paul the kvetcher & Newt the lecher,
choosing Etch-a-Sketch Mitt over ever-sketchy Rick.
But who knows? It could all shake up again. Read more
When Romney wins a state, he's quickly criticized:
he should have won by more, he spent too much,
it was his to lose & the next one will be tougher.
When he wins a debate, vulture analysts swoop in
to pick at him for winning by flip-flopping positions
or for being too aloof, then becoming too aggressive.
When he wins a news cycle, it's never to his credit:
it's due to his Super PAC, or support from GOP elites
or the absurd extremes of his radical right-wing rivals,
& everyone just waits for his next Richie Rich gaffe. Read more
1/1/12 Mitt Romney seems determined to prove that he can be the kind of right-wing extremist that Iowa’s GOP caucus voters are looking for.
Romney said Saturday that as President, he would veto the DREAM Act, which provides a path to citizenship for children of undocumented immigrants if they attend college or serve in the military. Juan Sepulveda, Senior Advisor for Hispanic Affairs to the Democratic National Committee, called Romney’s position “appalling” and suggested that his view would make him “the most extreme presidential nominee in recent memory.”
Romney may be helping himself in the Republican nominating process, but his position will it much harder for him to win states like Florida, Nevada, New Mexico and Colorado in the General Election.
