Romney Lacks, Umh, Credibility

ABC News: Romney Calls Himself a Longtime Hunter
The Republican presidential contender has told audiences on several occasions, most recently this week in gun-savvy and early voting New Hampshire, that he has been a longtime hunter. But it turns out he has been on only two hunting trips.

Critics said it was the latest example of a White House aspirant willing to say anything to reach the Oval Office.
Well, now, maybe that's a bit extreme?
"I purchased a gun when I was a young man. I've been a hunter pretty much all my life," he told a man sporting a National Rifle Association cap.

Yet the former Massachusetts governor's hunting experience came during two trips at the bookends of his 60 years: as a 15-year-old, when he hunted rabbits with his cousins on a ranch in Idaho, and last year, when he shot quail on a fenced game preserve in Georgia.
Okay, maybe not.

I can't say I liked Romney, even before he started his run for the Oval Office. He seemed pretty shifty as the Governor of Massachusetts, an aberration that I can only attribute to voter hysteria or maybe Diebold (what kind of voting machines do they use in MA anyway?). Oh, well. I guess it was about time for the Repugs to have their own Joe Biden. See ya', Mitt!
