After reading a lot of tweets, listening to some talk radio, and watching some cable TV, I can say that this Romney/birther moment is representative of the whole, horrible campaign cycle we are in. The level of vitriol and personal animus that exists on both sides over the flap is truly discouraging. -Mark Halperin on Romney birtherism
That’s right. Mitt Romney’s shout-out to birtherism is a demonstration of how ugly “both sides” have become.
To say something this profoundly ignorant and divorced from reality, you have to willingly overlook the fact that virtually every single thing the Romney campaign says about the president is a lie, and that virtually every single thing the Obama campaign says about Mitt Romney, and Paul Ryan, is true.
Only one party is running on the record as it stands, and it’s not the party who believes the president is a secret Kenyan who wants to give you welfare for nothing.
