For a while there I thought his finger must have gotten stuck in the wind, but for the time being he’s back… and just in time, eh?

National Journal:

After days of refusing to take a position on the high-stakes budget talks, Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney came out on Monday against a last-minute deal to avoid a potentially economy-rattling government default.

Romney’s move allows him to continue to draw a stark contrast between his approach and President Obama’s economic stewardship, and it puts it him in line with the most conservative wing of his party. Without any public appearances on his schedule this week, Romney can avoid hard questions about the potential consequences of the plan’s failure.

Romney hadn’t offered much of an opinion on this for quite some time, but now that the dust is starting to settle maybe it’s a little safer politically.

For some reason I’m reminded of the part of movie Gladiator when Commodus rode into a bloody, smoldering aftermath and asked, “Have I missed the battle?” Marcus Aurelius answered, “You have missed the war.”

    "….his finger must have gotten stuck in the wind, …", I just love that Doug !

    But what I hate is when someone has been missing and then he turns up, and I didn`t miss him, and I`d be fine with it if he`d disappear for a longer while !

    Oblunder is leading from the rear and campaigning from the front; is Romney campaigning from the Twilight Zone ?

    I pray to God that this waffling buffoon doesn't make the GOP ticket.

    "Oblunder is leading from the rear and campaigning from the front;"

    Pure GOLD. The (1) sentence that says it all. Perhaps more kind than most.., Mitt didn't make this mess. At least not directly. There's no real upside for him to throw his two cents in.

    Why get involved. There's plenty of ROPE to go around?
