Whether or nor history will record Mitt Romney's misadventures in Britain and Israel last week as the Republicans' equivalent of Michael Dukakkis in a tank, remains to be seen. But whatever missteps Romney made abroad, he did not misspeak. Nor did anyone who spoke for the Romney Campaign.
That does not mean, of course, that I agree with what Romney said or what was reportedly said his campaign adviser. I don't Apparently neither does Romney, who tried to rewrite his remarks about the "inferior" culture of the Palestinians even as right-wingers moved to embrace them. Meanwhile moderate Republicans tried, and tried, and tried to explain what Mitt Romney meant to say. Romney did not misspeak. He meant what he said, and he meant to say it. The proof is in the policies he'd like to inflict upon a whole lot of folks back home.
Mitt Romney's policies show that he's an extremist for the privileged. His words suggest the basis of his extremism, and reveal Mitt Romney as a "one-percent supremacist."
