Today and next week I hit the airwaves to discuss dirty tricks past and present-- don't you love it that Mitt Romney in Wednesday's debate accused John McCain of falsifying Mitt's ideas about withdrawing from Iraq. The quote:
“I have never, ever supported a specific timetable” for withdrawing troops."[McCain’s accusation] sort of falls into the dirty tricks that I think Ronald Reagan would have found reprehensible.”
Of course, Mitt was standing in the Ronald Reagan Library at the time, with first widow Nancy by his side, but still...Ronald Reagan, saint though the Republicans would have him to be, certainly indulged in dirty tricks, which included having Jimmy Carter's private debate briefing book stolen and may have included a deal with the Iranians holdinng Amerian hostages captive not to release them until Reagan became president.
But nice try, Mitt.
