When this group calls you hypocritical, you’re in trouble

If a 400-pound person says “Dang, you eat a lot of food”, then you really eat a lot of food.
If Darth Vader says you’re really a control freak, then you are really a…you get the idea.

So if Republicans are calling you an inconsistent flip-flopper…well, there’s not much doubt – you are really a flip-floppin’ hypocrite.  And if they’re calling you these things even though you are the GOP front-runner…ouch.  And throw in a reference to you being like Dukakis?  Wow!

Conservative mainstay George Will isn’t exactly jumping on the Mitt Romney bandwagon.

Writing in Sunday’s Washington Post, he bashes the GOP contender for failing to take consistent positions on many key issues. “A straddle is not a political philosophy; it is what you do when you do not have one,” Will writes.

Will calls Romney’s subtly shifting positions on ethanol subsidies, for example, “a policy pretzel.”

He also takes aim at Romney’s failure to express a clear opinion last week about an Ohio ballot initiative that would affect collective bargaining rights in the state.

Romney, Will continues, “is a recidivist reviser of his principles who is not only becoming less electable; he might damage GOP chances of capturing the Senate…Republicans may have found their Michael Dukakis.”

This is hardly the first time Mitt Romney has been accused of inconsistency, of course. His changing positions on healthcareimmigrationclimate change, and more have made for frequent charges of hypocrisy from his GOP rivals, not to mention liberal critics like Jon Stewart.

Stewart shows clips of a couple of Romney flip-flops, including the Ohio debacle:

But then Steward proceeds to say why Romney can do this in a look at the competition:  http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/thu-october-27-2011/indecision-2012—scared-mittless

C’mon Home!

Last full U.S. combat brigade leaves Iraq

IRAQ-KUWAIT BORDER — The last U.S. combat troops crossed the border into Kuwait on Thursday morning, bringing to a close the active combat phase of a 7½-year war that overthrew the dictatorial regime of Saddam Hussein, forever defined the presidency of George W. Bush and left more than 4,400 American service members and tens of thousands of Iraqis dead.
