This is Mitt Romney, in a nutshell.
I’m not familiar precisely with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said, whatever it was. -Romney on Rev. Wright Attacks
“I stand by what I said, whatever it was” is a dangerous thing for Mitt Romney to say, because he could have said anything.
He has said anything. That’s been his entire campaign strategy. To say whatever people want to hear. And apparently he stands by it. Whatever it was.
I don’t expect him to actually stand by what he said today after “whatever it was” he said previously is dug up.
And yes, in case you didn’t know, we’re back on Reverend Jeremiah Wright. The New York Times reported today that Chicago Cubs owner Joe Ricketts is considering a $10 million ad buy to run political attack ads connecting President Obama to Reverend Wright. And we all just took a trip back to 2008.
Ricketts, meanwhile, is seeking $100 million socialized dollars from the local government to renovate Wrigley Field.
