When Obama abruptly changes his position on an issue (think gay marriage), he is said to have evolved. When Mitt does the same (say, on abortion), he flip-flops.
Ann Romney wears a $990 shirt in May, and the Washington Post denounces her as out of touch and “indicative of a tone-deaf campaign.” Last month in London Mooch-elle Obama showed off an embroidered jacket that cost $6,800. The verdict? She “wowed ’em” at Buckingham Palace.
Rising gas prices? Never mentioned, unless to explain them away by saying they have something to do with an oil refinery fire and are absolutely not the fault of the president.
Falling gas prices? They lead the 6 o’clock news. Beaming motorists interviewed live at the nearest pumps. Good news for the American consumer!
Pointing out that a gallon of gas cost $1.89 on the day Bush left office in 2009 — a firing offense.
