Talking Points Memo
July 17, 2008
They say that everything that’s old will one day be new again. And in a similar vein eventually I knew Mitt Romney would be in the news again, notwithstanding his ignominious and deeply unfortunate campaign implosion last winter. But now in an effort to get picked as McCain’s veep, Mitt’s back on the airwaves with more vintage nonsense. And it also dovetails nicely with the escalating cult of personality over McCain and the ‘Surge’. So here’s Mitt saying not only did McCain support the surge. He actually invented the concept. McCain "authored the philosophy" of the surge, saith the Mittman.
