From Mashed Potato Bulletin:
In what could become Mitt Romney’s J.D. Hayworth moment this ABC News video utterly contradicts the Republican presidential candidates calls to severely cut government spending. As with J.D. Hayworth – John McCain’s Tea Party challenger in 2010 who was caught in “Free Government Money” informercial which contributed to his election loss – this video may be the metaphorical topper to the ex-governor’s campaign of flip-flopping. Depending on the coverage it receives, Mitt may have essentially shot himself in the foot.
While I’m sure the tea-party types (and, hell, most of the Americans who have bought the Koch Brothers’ self-indulgent crap) will yell like wounded hyenas over this, an increase in taxes for those earning the big bucks has to happen.
