Did Wilde have Willard in mind?

MITT ROMNEY'S mannered style of slipping out of his biographical noose apparently will be with us until Election Day.  Whether it be his braided for-and-against positions on health care, abortion, taxes and various other twists dating back to his days at Bain Capital and as Massachusetts governor, Mitt insists that we join him in denial of his critics as well as the actual accounts of his rise to be the face of Republican politics.  But we prefer what  Oscar Wilde once wrote about folks like Romney:  
"No man is rich enough to buy back his past."
Not in Wilde's day.  Not now.
