Dems begin the say-anything bash-o-rama on Mitt Romney

Guess who Democrats think the Republican presidential nominee is? Roll the video. Or, actually, videos. The Democratic National Committee unveiled a 4 minute web ad and a new TV ad (which can't run in Florida due to limitations before the Jan. 31 primary) bashing Mitt Romney for being "two men trapped in one body."

DNC chair, Weston Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, just finished a conference call to tout the ads and drive the message home. "He is a flip flopper, a candidate with no core beliefs and someone who will say anything to get elected," Wasserman Schultz said, likening Romney to one of her children who fibs.

"Keeping track of all the lies gets a little tiring and difficult," she said, chiding Romney for his positions on payroll taxes, Grover Norquist's tax pledge, the auto bailout, Obama's healthcare plan, climate-change legislation, Iraq, Afghanistan, trade with China, immigration (as evidenced in today's Bloomberg story), gay rights, abortion and....?

Wasserman Schultz disputed the idea that the DNC believes Romney is the frontrunner. She said that the other Republican candidates haven't done a good enough job exposing Romney for his shifting positions. Yeah, right.

Here's what conservative blogger Erick Erickson says: "The DNC is gambling that Romney will be the nominee, but they also know there is a lot of angst with the GOP. By hitting Romney now they can potentially drag out the pain of the Republican Primary before doing what every Democrat and Beltway Pundit in America thinks — settling for Romney, a guy they will have already defined as a flip-flopper."

As I look at the sorry sorry set of Republican “rivals” on the other side, it makes me more thankful than ever.... to have Barack Obama as President of the United States, and as a viable candidate for re-election. Mr. Obama: your heart, your values, and your basic decency are all in the right place. But... your hands are tied. Unfortunately they were tied by us, the electorate.....when we failed to provide you with a Congress that you can work with. Instead, you are saddled with a don’t-tax-the-1%-do-nothing Congress that battles you at every turn, while the people suffer. God, they don't EVEN let you pass your own appointments. It's not Tea-publican gridlock - it's Tea-publican sabotage. Heck, it's Tea-publican treason.  And then they try to pin the blame on Mr. Obama. These people have no shame...or else its been purchased by those who can afford to do so. Thankfully, with Occupy Wall Street America has found its voice : a voice that reminds us that people -ordinary working people- really DO matter. Instead of talking about less government , and more painful cuts, it’s a voice that demands a government that WORKS, a government that works FOR ALL OF US, not just for a favored few, not just for the rich. It’s a voice that comes up from the grassroots, and lifts us up: because it says that this land IS our land...and we WANT IT BACK! And most importantly, it's a voice that will help us to re-elect the President AND  give him a more progressive Congress to work with. Mr. Obama: I wish you well. You STILL give me hope.
