The operative word is "chutzpah." Romney and Ryan have become the final straws in the country's slow recognition that Republican are up to no good.
I thought we’d reached new heights of chutzpah in 2010 when Paul Ryan claimed to be a “fiscal conservative” — even though his original “Roadmap for America’s Future” added $62 trillion to the national debt before balancing the budget a half century from now.
Then that was topped in 2011 by the GOP’s galling refusal to raise the debt ceiling — despite having passed a Republican House budget that added nearly $6 trillion to the national debt in the next decade. As Bill Clinton might have said, it takes “brass” to stonewall on the debt limit when you’ve just voted to add trillions in fresh debt yourself.
But records are made to be broken. And so Mitt Romney’s fundraiser video riff now takes the chutzpah cake. ...
... To be so insultingly tone deaf and self-destructive even while being dead wrong and hypocritical on the substance is a perverse sort of accomplishment. It’s not easy to be this bad — but, like Roger Federer in his chosen field, Romney somehow makes it look effortless. ...Matt Miller
Romney's speech to moneyed supporters hasn't just damaged Romney; it has illuminated the harm the Republican party keeps doing to America.
