Mitt Romney, exit stage right. A little quicker, please …

From Jay Bookman at the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

http://blogs.ajc.com/jay-bookman-blog/2012/11/15/mitt-romney-exit-stage-right-a-little-quicker-please/

So let me get this straight: When Romney, in the first debate, promised a tax cut to the middle class, he wasn’t promising them a gift? When he wooed his backers on Wall Street by telling them that he would repeal Dodd Frank, abolish the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau and lower corporate taxes, that wasn’t promising a gift?

When he went to Viriginia to promise to build even more nuclear-powered submarines that just happened to be built right there in Virginia, that wasn’t a gift? When he went to coal country to promise to weaken environmental regulations that protect the air we breathe, that wasn’t a gift? When he traveled to Florida to promise to replace $716 billion in Medicare funding allegedly cut by the Obama administration, that wasn’t a gift?

Or is it only a “gift” when offered to poor African Americans or Hispanic Americans?

All in all, it is quite something to see complaints about pandering from a man who wafted in the political breeze with all the gravity of a dandelion seed.
