nice pre-debate interview with Sen. Kerry

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/election-2012/wp/2012/10/22/kerry-tonights-the-night-of-reckoning-for-romney/


My favorite bit was the last sentence:
in a reference to Romney having once toted his dog in a crate atop his car on a family trip in 1983, Kerry added that he became so good at role-playing Romney that when he went home “my dog was growling at me.”

2. I just saw him on MSNBC

interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell. One quip after another.. he just seems to be having a great time these days.
In this interview, he said he now gets to "exorcise" Romney from himself. .

5. I saw that. Did you see him standing...

...in the background earlier when Lawrence interviewed Pataki? After the interview, Rachel commented on seeing John Kerry standing there (paraphrasing) watching like 'a large hawk looking at a mouse.' Too funny!

7. Missed that

heard Rachel's comment though, and was sorry I missed it . Also saw the interview with O'Donnell and he was great, as he was in the earlier interview with Sharpton and the one with Blitzer (heard only the last part while driving home). All in all, he has been VERY busy these last few days. As to the next t weeks....

4. He's clearly having a great time

He really is an interesting mix of a very funny guy and an intensely serious one.

Argh. I'm no good at getting videos from MSNBC.

11. John Kerry's talking points are now Obama's

I thought in the above video, which everyone should watch, Kerry was at his most compelling when talking about how Mass. views Romney. He mentioned that when Romney left office, he was at a 37% approval rate and would not have been re-elected. He currently is down 20 to 25 points in the MA presidential election polling. Chuck Todd tried to frame it as "Was Romney a moderate governor" but Kerry said he wanted to finish his thought: the reason why Romney became so unpopular in MA was because they felt he was untrustworthy. I think this is compelling stuff! It's what keeps me up at night if that guy gets in. Think about it: the world is watching this election, too. How can foreign leaders trust Romney's word? It's obvious he just says whatever he thinks the person in front of him wants to hear. And this goes well beyond Bill Clinton Slick Willie type of politicking. Clinton actually did have a set of core values (he was left of center but not all that liberal). Romney does not. I don't see him doing well diplomatically.

What I found interesting was that Obama gave a similar message yesterday. That you can't trust Romney. He went into how Romney would have let the auto industry go bankrupt and now is telling everyone a different story. I think it's a good message, and now with another Senate candidate going off the rails regarding rape (the loser who took out the honorable Dick Lugar in the IN primaries), we have another example of Romney just saying whatever in response (sorry, but why should we believe him?). Completely. Untrustworthy.

12. Here is Obama on trust:

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2012/10/barack_obama_wants_to_paint_mitt_romney_as_a_man_who_can_t_be_trusted.html

"This is about trust,” he said. “There is no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. The person who leads this country you've got to have some confidence that he or she means what she says. What they believe that they are going to do it. You want someone to look you in the eye and say, ‘Here's what I stand for. Here's what I'll fight for. Here's what I care about. Here’s who I'm going to look out for in the debates in Washington.’ "
