Fox News ‘Debate’ Wrap-Up
The media are now pretending that there was some actual conflict, but the Republican candidates obviously agree with each other on almost every issue. Except for Ron Paul, who consistently plays the Crazy Uncle.
The only real “conflict” tonight came from the attacks on each other’s past positions for not being far enough to the right. On all current positions, they’re in absolute lockstep.
Except for Ron Paul, who’s not down with the war-mongering but totally on board with everything else.
Possibly the most revealing line of the night came from Mitt Romney: “With regards to abortion, I changed my mind.”
No kidding. He changed from telling heart-wrenching stories of women forced to seek dangerous illegal abortions, to spouting “life begins at conception” right wing talking points.
