No. of Recommendations: 10
Romney has always been characterized in business as a man who will do what is necessary to get the job done.

And that's what he did Tuesday night. Realizing that the policies of the extremists who control the GOP are headed for failure, he tried a bunch of approaches -- from outright lying to superficial word play -- to cut the chord between him and this host of electoral anchors.

Maybe he went back to being the real Mitt, if that was the man who was governor of Massachusetts. Maybe not. The right wing don't care, because as they have said all along, no behavior or words are off the table if they help defeat Obama.

The problem for Mitt is that we've seen this all before, so that after the bump of enthusiasm fades, he'll remain as an even less trustworthy candidate than he was -- and since, in the end, his pitch rests on those words "Trust Me" -- he faces a new problem.

Then there is Massachusetts. Romney basically said he did what a Democratic legislature wanted and would agree to, and he is proud of what he did. Think that won't be examined closely? Up until now, he has stayed as far away from mentioning Massachusetts as he did in his last few years as Chief Executive of Bain?

I just hope his anchored coattails drag down the despicable wing of his party.
