The EFM Feature

I will have much more to say later about the ridiculous ad and other documents being circulated by the PAC, but for now I’ll just note one strange aspect of this round of criticism from the right. The old adage, “actions speak louder than words” has been used to judge politicians for generations. For example, the Republican ranks are littered with those who talk a good game to social conservatives then govern from the so-called “center” when they gain power.
Here, as I understand it, the criticism of Governor Romney is exactly the opposite. According to RightMarch (and others), we are to ignore his actions because they contradict words he spoke more than a decade ago. This is truly strange reasoning, but it places the Governor in the enviable position of answering criticism by, well, actually running on his record.
