    On Meet the Press, David Gregory asked Romney about elements of ObamaCare that were both popular and he was seeking to repeal. Suprisingly (Well not really), Romney said he wasn't going to repeal them.

    Really?

    He also dropped the word "repeal" for the interview.

    Romney's a pathological liar. He'll tell different people what they want to hear, and then spin on a dime. He has no core convictions.

    The problem for Romney is that he embraced the far right wing of the present GOP, and now realizes that the ideologies that represents will not sell to the independents and moderates. So he is trying to somehow appeal to them, without antagonizing the wingnuts. Not possible, of course, without contradicting himself.

    The Romney-Ryan Brand is not about accurate estimates, statements, or policy prescriptions about nearly anything. See how their personal, zero-moral-compass, personal families and characters fits Defense Department procurements.

    In the link, by 2007 of the Bush-Cheney version, Pentagon Procurements were at 40% above first estimates!

    http://www.gao.gov/assets/120/119874.pdf

    Rep. Ryan was famously on ABC Sunday Morning This Week, noting that no cuts in loopholes in the tax code: Would be announced by them. That would be worked out with Congress. Instead there would be a "framework" of first estimates disucssed in the election. That is the centerpiece of their plan!

    Anyone sees how it works. Government Accounting Office has suggested that the nation would be better off, not going there!

    "Crow, James Crow: Shaken, Not Stirred!"
    (GAO maybe recommend hundreds of office waste baskets for Venice Beachwalk in California. Many could then go there(?)!)

    he also vehemently disagrees, as well.
