Things Losers Say, Undoubtedly Part One.

Please stop talking about my taxes, please, Mr. Obama?  Pretty please with sugar on top? 
Mitt Romney, battered by Democratic attacks over his Bain Capital record and taxes, is calling on President Obama to agree to a truce over his business career.
“Our campaign would be — helped immensely if we had an agreement between both campaigns that we were only going to talk about issues and that attacks based upon — business or family or taxes or things of that nature,” Romney said, according to excerpts of an upcoming interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd released Friday.
Romney said he would prefer the campaigns “only talk about issues,” and claimed that “our ads haven’t gone after the president personally. … We haven’t dredged up the old stuff that people talked about last time around. We haven’t gone after the personal things.”
I don't know about you, but I laughed and laughed.  Not quite as hard, inexplicably and embarassingly as about this, but still. 

Waiting for the video....

"We haven’t dredged up the old stuff that people talked about last time around."

No doubt the fact it would be completely ineffective did not factor into the decision.

Payback for 2004's a bitch, I guess.

It was the Republicans, in particular George Bush Sr. in the race vs. Dukakis, who taught me that in presidential politics, there are no rules. If you fling poo and it sticks, you keep flinging. And the other guy had better fling some back, or he's done.

Obama's going easy on him. Lloyd Bentsen would have punched Romney's face in by this stage.

I miss Lloyd Bentsen.
