“High gasoline prices are probably here to stay” — Mitt Romney, 2006

Etch-A-Sketch “Mitt” Romney has already done more flipflops than a gymnast; changed direction more often than the wind at Cape Cod.  His most famous flipflop is the fact that he invented “Romneycare,” and now he’s on the campaign trail vilifying the identical “Obamacare.”

And now, while he’s blaming President Obama for high gas prices, trying to gut most of our environmental protections and aligning himself with the “Dril Babee Dril” inbreds — another skeleton has poked its head out of Romney’s closet.

When Romney was governor of Massachusetts, he was in favor of Smart Growth.  In case that’s not enough to chill the hearts of teabaggers and Kochsuckers everywhere, Romney also came out against a Republican proposal to suspend the state gas tax during a spike in prices.  In 2006 he said:

“I don’t think that now is the time, and I’m not sure there will be the right time, for us to encourage the use of more gasoline. I’m very much in favor of people recognizing that these high gasoline prices are probably here to stay.”


Let’s make sure this Romney quote is played over and over and over until November.

Is it any wonder that only the rats have any use for Willard? Hell, even Rapture Rick is saying Obama would be preferable.

There's a reason I switched my Delorean from gas to garbage.

Mitt Romney is utterly useless and needs to simply retire.

Public transit is no help either. Estimated cost of a Sounder train ride? $57. I think a limo is cheaper if I'm not mistaken.

J: I hope his new name follows him all the way to November.

Erik: I'll bet if we drill and mine every national park and every wildlife preserve, we can get gas down to one dollar a gallon. This is what God intended.

JR: For once I actually agree with Santorum on something.

Randal: Next there'll be a garbage shortage.

Jack: Maybe he will after November.

Demeur: Hitchhike :)
