Wow. Just, wow:
"[If] something of that nature presents itself I will work to find a way to take advantage of the opportunity." -- Mitt Romney
Now you know why he was smirking at that press conference a few days ago. This was his "Jimmy Carter" scenario on a silver tray, or so he thought. And if Romney had simply waited two or three news cycles before going on the attack, he might have pulled it off.
If Romney's handlers thought it couldn't get any worse, it just did. And there's always the possibility that things could get worse tomorrow. I wouldn't rule out anything at this point.
