And why it matters…

The trouble for Romney is that his shrinking in the face of an obvious opportunity to stand up for decency, reinforces the notion of his fear of his own base, and his inability to stand on principle, assuming we understand what his principles are. Not a good narrative builder if you want to be leader of the free world.

It’s Sandra Fluke/Rush Limbaugh all over again.

It’s tempting to suggest that while Romney is busy inventing the notion that President Obama goes around “apologizing for America” — something that is demonstrably false, he ought to spend less time going around apologizing for the extremists inside the Republican party.
