Great article from AlterNet – Woof!
How quickly they want America to forget. For months, the GOP presidential field has attacked Mitt Romney for everything. He’s bland, boring, out-of-touch, a political and business insider. He’s awkward and insensitive. Moreover, he’s insufficiently conservative – hardly a true believer. And even worse than strapping the family dog to the car’s roof, he is too close to Obama on key issues, making him unelectable.
But now, as Romney wraps up the GOP nomination, the party’s also-rans are running to Romney’s side and endorsing the man, as if their criticisms and barbs were never uttered at all. Last week, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who called Romney a “vulture capitalist” during the primary fight, now says Mitt is the man to lead an economic recovery.
