VIDEO-- Jeb's flip-floppy day. As for Bush 2016, Herman Cain says, "Not so fast, Kimosabe!"

Jeb Bush wishes Romney were president, and his poor little heart is broken because Obama won a second term and Willard lost. Bush clearly admires the failed candidate because he's doing his best impression of all those infamous Mitt flip flops:

TPM: Jeb Bush made a surprising return to the immigration reform debate by announcing he no longer supports a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. But after a backlash from immigration activists, he seems to be opening the door the slightest bit to changing his mind once again.

Not the best role model, Jeb. You may want to think that strategy through before you find yourself flailing around in that vast, losery, Etch A Sketchy political abyss.

Inventor of Etch A Sketch dies in France at 86, Mitt Romney Inconsolable



Farewell, you brought much joy into the Democrats hearts! Added- Just heard from my "sources"** that Mitt is just riding up and down in his car elevator, swigging buttermilk and sobbing softly.

BRYAN, Ohio — Andre Cassagnes, the inventor of the Etch A Sketch toy that generations of children drew on, shook up and started over, has died in France, the toy's maker said.

Cassagnes died Jan. 16 in a Paris suburb at age 86, said the Ohio Art Co., based in Bryan in northwest Ohio. The cause wasn't disclosed Saturday.


Then an electrical technician, Cassagnes came upon the Etch A Sketch idea in the late 1950s when he peeled a translucent decal from a light switch plate and found pencil mark images transferred to the opposite face, the Toy Industry Association said.

Ohio Art saw his idea at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 1959. The toy, with its gray screen, red frame and two white knobs that are twisted back and forth to create drawings, was launched in 1960 and became the top seller that holiday season. More than 100 million have been sold worldwide since.

Though passed over in popularity for video games and gadgets, the toy has a steady market, the company has said. It got a big jump in sales after Etch A Sketch was featured in the first two "Toy Story" movies, and Ohio Art capitalized on a much-publicized gaffe by a Mitt Romney aide during last year's presidential election, who was asked about his candidate's views during the primary season versus the general election.

"Sources" just equate to the voices in my head, but hey, at least I'm honest about it!


PhotOH! New Yorker: Mitt Romney's tattoos. Oh, and new poll says Pres. Obama leads in Ohio 51-47



And this just in, via PPP:

PPP's newest Ohio poll finds Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney 51-47, up from a 49-48 margin a week ago.

It's starting to look like Obama might have turned the corner with his wins in the second and third debates. ... Obama's approval is on positive ground at 51/48, while Romney's favorability is in negative territory at 47/51. Ohioans trust Obama over Romney on both the economy (52/46) and foreign policy (54/44).

Obama's built up a big lead among early voters in the state.

VIDEO: Mitt Romney's "solution" to extremism against women? Promote the extremists.



In 2011, Mitt Romney was caught on camera ranting, “We should have a prohibition on abortion… You’re trying to tell me that I’m not a faithful Mormon!”

He got a little testy when the radio host tried to nail him on his Romnesia.

Know who else is all over Willard and Todd Akin's personhood co-sponsor Paul Ryan? The man who will be re-elected for another four years.

He's making sure America knows that Romney is backing Richard Mourdock, the guy who says rape pregnancies are "intended by God."

America needs to know that this is Republican policy now, and that it is no longer out of the norm for the GOP. Is being this offensive what Romney meant by "big change"?

If his kind of extremism is "big change" it's not the kind we can believe in.


Mitt Romney's "solution to extremism against women? Promote the extremists.



"Which do you believe? What Mitt Romney's TV ads say about women or what Mitt Romney himself says:"

Mitt Romney:

"Do I believe Supreme Court decisions should overturn Roe v. Wade? Yes."
"And it would be my preference that they reverse Roe v. Wade."
"Hopefully reverse Roe v. Wade."
"Overturn Roe v. Wade"
"Planned Parenthood, we're going to get rid of that."
"I'll cut off funding to Planned Parenthood."


"No matter what Mitt Romney's ads say we know what he'll do."
