Romney and the Republican Memory Hole

Mitt Romney laid out his case to the American people last night. The speech was long, bloated with the sleep inducing poll tested patriotic treacle and banal pieties that have become inescapable on these occasions. Mitt Romney campaigns in prose, with a mind given to power point not poetry.

When Accountants Go Bad: Scandal-Plagued Firms Turn Out For Romney

The Two Things Elizabeth Warren Needs To Do

Romney and Ryan: The Right Kind of “Welfare Queens”

She's baaaaa-aaaack! The Romney/Ryan campaign has resurrected Reagan's "Welfare Queen." It would be laughable, if they weren't serious, if the stakes weren't so high, and if there weren't so likely to get away with it.
