Romney joins Dems: Economy is getting better!

IF SOME REPUBLICANS worry about McMitt Romney's unedited campaign-speak when he isn't constrained by a debate, here's another example of the sort of stuff that has Democratic strategists reaching for their notebooks for future use:

Appearing on a Fox News interview with Laura Ingraham on a huge issue that Romney and others have used against President Obama, he opined that the economy is improving! Startled that a Republican presidential candidate would go so positive, Ingraham asked him if that's what he meant to say. Replied McMitt: "Of course, the economy is getting better."

Maybe he should stick to his talk about "self-deportation" and leave the economy to his script writers.

When John Kerry let his mouth run faster than his brain, seeming to contradict himself as Romney sometimes does, the GOP shred Kerry into confetti. Will the Dems have the hutzpa to label McMitt as a "flip flopper"?

We'll leave that up to McNewt for now. McMitt will likely flip himself.

Another example, this time by Ingraham, of how Fox News' talking heads steer the interviews to comply with their right-wing, anti-Obama slants. On this occasion, despite Ingraham's admonishing prompt, interviewee Mitt refused to take the hint and told the truth.
