We've had a long and recharging snooze here at Scatablog. To get the ball rolling, here is a really great comment about Romney from "Daryl" on the Kevin Drum blog at Mother Jones:
Romney's message to voters: I'm going to eliminate the abomination that is Obamacare, and by the way, if you like Obamacare, I invented it. I would have let GM go broke, and by the way, if you are glad that it didn't, it's because of me. I'm going to work to eliminate socialist programs such as Medicare and Social Security, and by the way, if you like those, I want you to know that I'm going to save them from bankruptcy. I'm going to eliminate government interference in the economy, and I'm going to make sure that the government fixes the economy. I'm going to end the scourge of abortion, and by the way, if you are pro-choice, I should remind you that I was on your side as governor of Massachusetts.
There's so much to add: I paid "taxes" in all those years for which I won't show you my returns -- trust me, but no, I won't tell you whether those were Federal gasoline taxes, Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes, state and local sales taxes, property taxes or what you are really asking about, Federal income taxes. We could go on. So little time.
