The Multitudinous Mitt

Though aspects of Chapman's column were infuriating, the unfortunate aspect of it is that parts are true. If Romney becomes president we may come to look upon this electoral campaign as the lesser of two battles--the second battle being to hold the new president to the conservative promises he made during the campaign. I dislike Obama as much as anyone, but has it occured to people that in the effort to see him defeated we're accepting too much liberalism from the man known as his opponent? This failure to see the big picture is, I think, the biggest reason why the U.S. has continually moved in a leftward direction, despite Republican presidents.

You make a very good point but it just goes to show how bad of a candidate Obama is that Mitt actually looks conservative by comparison.

In Wednesday's debate, Mitt Romney said he will "stop the subsidy" to public broadcasting. That's good to know, because Mitt Romney's campaign website says he will merely "reduce subsidies for ... the Corporation for Public Broadcasting."

Kill Big Bird or just pluck some of his feathers? Or neither, in keeping with what often happens to promises made by politicians? As Ted Kennedy once said of Romney's abortion policy, "I am pro-choice. My opponent is multiple choice."

Barack Obama had a tough time in the debate because he was told he would be debating Mitt Romney, a self-described "severely conservative"...
