Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Remember When I Wondered If DICK Romney Would Show Up?

He did.

I think Mitt decided tonight was a great time for his first cup of coffee.


Part of the problem is that Jim Lehrer thinks his job is to delineate the differences between the candidates.  The differences are pretty clear.  Making this debate kind of meaningless.

Also, too, Mitt is not going to win over those Walmart Moms by being all shouty and fast talking over Lehrer.


When the Romney debate team said, "Use more zingers" Romney heard, "Use more fingers."


The NYTimes panel is noting that Romney basically debating against the GOP orthodoxy.  Which will be interesting when the base gets a hold of him.  Or the Fact Checkers.
