From “Devastating,” Josh Marshall, Talking Points Memo:
“It’s rare when the impact of some gaffe or embarrassment or revelation isn’t overstated on first blush. But this may just be that rare exception. This tape strikes me as absolutely devastating.
“As for the tape itself, this is a fine distillation of the most rancid version of the libertarian conservative worldview.
“This is the caricature of Mitt Romney, who was born on 3rd base (in Ann Richards’ memorable phrase), thinks he hit a triple and thinks the broad middle class who’ve relied on government for student loans or social security or anything else are losers who can’t get their act together and take responsibility for themselves. Only this tape says that caricature Mitt Romney is the real Mitt Romney.
“Big problem.” Emphasis added.
