"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

President Bill Clinton at his Best on the Real Mitt Romney

This is vintage Bill Clinton -- laughed every time I saw it last night. He captured Romney and his flip flops which should be seen by every voter before they go to the polls. Who knows how Romney would govern after that debate performance where he went moderate and now in Iowa after an interview where he said he didn't know of any pro-life legislation, out comes his staff a little over an hour later moving him back to where he will be a pro-life President.  Were some of the hard right got upset at some of his recent comments so he had to go shore up the base again?  Romney has no core values or you could not morph into doing 180's all the time.  There is no real Romney because he is all over the place.

 Romney even admitted to not telling the truth by pushing misinformation during the debate. Imagine that! If we had a decent media, that would have been headlines across America that a candidate for President admitted he lied in the debates. Consider it a lie because he knew exactly what he was doing by saying one thing to a national audience he didn't believe and then let his staff correct after the debate.  In most circles that is dishonesty but in Republican circles under Karl Rove that is how the game is played.

Now NBC with Marist is doing polling in battleground states on ideology for voters not on likely or registered voters with 49% conservatives being polled. Does Marist actually believe that is going to stand up to the light of day or are they getting so many Republicans who are voting for Obama that it is skewing their polls? Every election year I hope it will be the end of pundits breathlessly reporting polls, but it is getting worse not better. Next job for Bill Clinton should be to take on the pollsters. No one could do it better.
