Obama is counting on votes from kids young enough to not remember his promises broken, or embarrassed at voting for him (because they were too young). The President did an interview in Rolling Stone magazine that’s light on issues and substance. But Obama has oratory to make up for it.
[Obama] avoided characterizing Romney as a flip-flopper, a common criticism Romney faced during the Republican primary contests, and instead tagged him as a candidate who willfully embraces the Republican Party’s most conservative views.
Three months ago he was a wishy-washy RINO. But now, he’s suddenly transformed to fire-breathing true believer! What’s more, the President suggests that conservative principles themselves will be the albatross around Romney’s neck during the campaign, saying,
“I don’t think that their nominee is going to be able to suddenly say, ‘Everything I’ve said for the last six months, I didn’t mean,’” Mr. Obama said. “I’m assuming that he meant it. When you’re running for president, people are paying attention to what you’re saying.”
So to review, Barack Obama says former flip-flopping RINO Mitt Romney is now a hard core right-winger who is going to disavow his newly-discovered hard-core conservatism to appear more like a flip-flopping RINO. …But it won’t work because people are paying attention… Thanks for clearing that up for us, Mr. President.
