Seeing comments in the light of day

During Thursday’s vice presidential debate, I hope Joe Biden asks Paul Ryan the following question — one that should have been hammered home again and again during the first presidential debate: “Which Mitt Romney should the American people believe? The one speaking for the cameras, standing on stage and over and over again expressing his concern for the middle class, and for the ‘100 percent’ of Americans?”

Or the Romney who, earlier this year, at that Florida fundraiser for wealthy donors, spoke not for the cameras, but from the heart. The Romney who wrote off almost half of the country as “victims” and moochers and said, point blank, that it wasn’t his job to worry about them, because they wouldn’t vote for him anyway.

Of course, Romney could speak from his heart then, because he thought his comments would never see the light of day.
