Now that this video is out there for all to see, today's newspapers are filled with Mr. Romney's crawfishing. He is now attempting to argue that his words were not well thought out or were not "elegant" - whatever that means.
To that I say, "Please stop it!"
Mr. Romney, it is time for you to realize that you are most likely going to lose in November. In football language, it is fourth and 21, you are at your own 13 yard-line with 8 seconds to go and you are losing by 7 points. It is time to throw a Hail Mary and see if you can pull out a miracle.
The miracle in this case will be convincing Independents out there that your words, captured in this Youtube clip, are what you believe.
To be honest with you, as a Libertarian, I needed to hear these words. I have not been excited about your candidacy for one minute. Now, if what you said here is what you believe, and if it suggests a manner in which you would run the country, I am more inclined to vote for you instead of writing down "Ron Paul" once again.
So, on behalf of those of us who are not excited about you, please keep saying this. Do not apologize. In fact, you need to say it more, say it louder and say it in a way that people like me will actively support you and try to convince others to do the same.
Remember, Mr. Romney, you told the truth so do not apologize for this.
Embrace it and throw the Hail Mary!
