This is one of the most brutal ads I’ve ever seen, via Steve B. It shows Romney as a flip-flopper who cries about a tough interview. Contrast that with this grilling of Michele Bachmann by a couple of smart high-school kids at an Iowa town hall meeting. Before you laugh off the quality of a high-schooler’s question, watch the video. They’re better and more persistent than most DC reporters.
Of course, she’s talking complete nonsense, but she’s doing it without getting pissy like Mitt, and I haven’t seen anything in the media saying that she whined later about the “unfairness” of the questions. Put aside the issues for a moment and just look at the political skill involved. Michele can repeat her talking points under pressure without missing a beat. Mitt can’t even regurgitate his bullshit on Fox News without getting flustered and crying about it later like a little baby. And she’s the unelectable one?
