Why the Etch A Sketch Will Lead to Even More Lies From Mitt Romney

George W. Bush saved the economy almost exactly the same way he caught bin Laden.

Yesterday should have been Mitt Romney’s day.

He’d won Illinois handily. And then he received the endorsement from Gallant to George W.’s Goofus—Jeb Bush. Then, you know: the Etch A Sketch thing.

Comic John Fugelsang asked Romney advisor Eric Fehrnstrom if Mitt had moved too far to right. Fehrnstrom then compared his boss to to a device that constantly erases itself. This was a flub, a real Washington gaffe in that someone accidentally told the truth.

As Jonathan Chait tweeted: “Political cynicism is smart.…

Barry Goldwater, the father of American conservativism, predicted Rick Santorum

But did they listen? Nope. They did not listen.

This graphic is from MoveOn.org and it almost breaks your heart to know that we could be having a much more reasonable debate about the path forward for America if the Republican party had listened to Barry Goldwater all those years ago:

Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise.…

Etch-A-Sketch Mitt will be severely whatever you want him to be after the primary


Mitt Romney is just like an Etch-A-Sketch where you can clear the message and start over again at any time without any trace of the past. That’s not ME saying that. It’s his spokesperson & Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom :

Appearing on CNN this morning, Romney Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom was asked if he’s concerned that Romney may alienate general election voters with some of the hard-right positions he’s taken during the primary to appeal to conservatives. Fehrnstrom brushed this concern off:

HOST: Is there a concern that Santorum and Gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right it would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election.

Mitt Romney hates teachers

We’re failing our children!

Last summer I posted a rant against the GOP’s demonization of teachers that gained a bit of traction. It went like this:

In any rational society, teachers are not considered “costs”. They are considered assets. Something to be valued. Something to be rewarded. The Republicans have done an amazingly effective job of turning the public’s perception from seeing teachers as a valuable asset to seeing them as parasitic leeches on the jugular vein of society. Rather than valuing them for the important role they play in our society — that of educating our children — they are now coming to be viewed as a “cost”, something to be cut when times get hard.…

Real Bravery: The Ryan/GOP Budget v. The Affordable Care Act

And by “brave,” I mean it gives me millions in tax breaks

On this day in 2010, this President signed the Affordable Care Act.

It’s a law that will help more than 30,000,000 uninsured Americans get health care. It stops private insurers from being able to deny care based preexisting conditions or mistakes in applications. It will insure that women can no longer be charged more for health insurance just because they are women. It ends Medicare giveaways to private insurers and for the first time regulates that insurers spend an appropriate amount of money on actual health care.

Already, children’s lives are being saved because of this law.…
