Ha! NICE job Mitt!


Don't accept the premise of the question, and hit back. VERY nicely done.


Now I'm going to have to go read what Bill O'blowhard had to say.


Edited to add: Blech. I shouldn't have done that. And then I read the comments afterwards. Reading those you'd think that Romney was loosing every state by double digits. I don't miss Bill at all.
