Romney foreign policy advisor Richard Wiilliamson was quoted in the Washington Post as saying the Middle East would be a kinder, gentler place if Mitt were president. "There's a pretty compelling story that if you had a President Romney, you'd be in a different situation," he said, explaining that Muslims would have liked him much more than Obama. I'm not sure what to make of that so I'll move on.
Paul Ryan, who has referred to Mitt as his running mate, says that when Obama talks about pulling together to improve America, he's dishonest. Why? Yep, the president's pro-choice position that "panders to the most extreme elements of his party."
Ryan, an absolutist who insists there should be no exceptions for abortion, said, "We're all in this together - it has a nice ring. For everyone who loves this country it is not only true, but obvious. Yet how hollow it sounds coming from a politician who has never once lifted a hand to defend the most helpless and innocent of all human beings, the child waiting to be born."Plunderbund noted that Ohio Board of Education president Debe Terhar, a Tea Party activist, has been named the co-chair of the Educators for Romney coalition, whatever that is. Terhar was appointed to the board by Gov. Kasich, ostensibly to bring enthusiasm and fervor to the state's education interests. If this works out, she'll doubtless be named as the football coach at one of the state universities. But first she'll have to finish the laundry
It could change, but as we write, those efforts to remove Obama from the Kansas ballot may have fizzled. A Kansas man who petitioned the state to to deny him a spot on the ballot has withdrawn his petition within a few days before the Kansas Objections Board was to act on it. The petitioner is a devout birther and had a friend in Secretary of State Kris Kobach, likewise a birther who was prepared to honor the request on grounds that Obama hadn't proved that he was an American.
By the way, Kobach is on the Romney immigration advisory team. (It never ends with Mitt!)
What was that memorable line from the Wizard of Oz? "Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore.")
