Bounce Back and the Lack Thereof

Obama & Romney both have polygamists in their recent family tree, and Obama's polygamous ancestors are actually more recent.

So it was silly when the governor of Montana said:
I am not alleging by any stretch that Romney is a polygamist and approves of [the] polygamy lifestyle, but his father was born into [a] polygamy commune in Mexico.
He goes on to make the point that most women don't approve of polygamy, which is no doubt true. Well it's the "but" in his quote that gives his intention away. "I'm not saying he's a polygamist, but..."

The Democrats keep running into backfire problems this year. Romney drove with a dog in a kennel on his car roof. But Obama ate dog meat. Romney is a Mormon. But Obama went to Jeremiah Wright's church.

The personal attacks
keep bouncing back.

It wasn't supposed to be this way. The economy was supposed to be booming by now, roaring back from the great recession, with the Democrats surfing the waves of good economic news. I think they placed too much faith in "raw animal spirits" bouncing back, and gave too little thought to the effects of their own legislation and regulation on the economy.

Oh, the American economy is a mighty pack animal. It can carry a lot of governmental burdens.

But there's such a thing as a weight
that's too great.
