First, the surprising and news-making reversal of Mitt Romney on Afghanistan, and some initial reaction to the debate:
Next, the commentary:
On the Tee Vee machine so far today, what I’m seeing from political commentators is that Romney simply “shifted to a more moderate, more appealing” position as opposed to completely and hypocritically reversing himself two weeks before Election Day.
He has zero credibility. He cannot be trusted, he cannot be believed. He’ll say anything he thinks voters want to hear.
Rachel Maddow nailed it:
“…68,000 American lives on the line… This is a real war... This is changing your mind… about the fate, the lives and deaths, of 68,000 Americans… and that you can get away with running from the things that you’ve previously claimed were your heartfelt beliefs and now denying that you ever believed they were true. It’s a character issue and I find it disqualifying.”
“It’s an existing war. It’s not hypothetical.”
I would say that the drugs have Swiss cheesed his memory, but we all know he’s just a lying m-f. Via.
