In the ad, Mitt Romney articulates the position that Barack Obama publicly held until Wednesday afternoon. Now, that position is “backward.” To contrast with Obama’s being “forward,” I guess.
The idea behind the ad was obviously fired up and ready to go before Obama’s big public flip flop, they just had to make the announcement and get Rommey to respond, instant ad. This entire week of “gaffes” and “evolution” has been a well choreographed but poorly cloaked charade. With MSM on the assist.
Additional thought: As long as the left can keep up this backward/forward trick, they’ll keep trying to push “forward,” if only to be able to accuse others of being “backward,” no? It’s not the principle they’re pursuing, but the political advantage.
