In Romney's latest on Flip Flop, he says Hillary was wrong about the concept that 'it takes a village to raise a child'.
When asked about the comment after his speech Sunday, Romney said he didn't agree with Clinton's view that children need a community-wide effort. She wrote a book in 1996 titled, "It Takes a Village."
Romney countered on Sunday: "It takes a family."
"I think it's time for us to recognize every child deserves a mother and a father,"
That's nice. They deserve shoes, a full belly, a warm bed, a Nana and a Papa, a good education and at least one trip to Disney World, too.
What Hillary and the rest of us are talking about is the concept that what we all say and do in the public square influences the trajectory of humanity. Hillary has her ideas and we have ours. On our side, when somebody's ideas prevail and shape the culture of the village in such a way that confuses our children about right and wrong choices, 'the mother and father' need the members of the village to publicly defend what we are teaching at home.
Therefore, the preservation of our ideology relies upon Hillary's concept...it's just that we're on the other side of the village. "Don't ask, don't tell" was last week's sound byte.
The press. of course, is delighted to point out the turnaround guy's latest turnaround:
"Hillary Clinton is very much right, it does take a village, and we are a village and we need to work together in a non-skeptical, no-finger-pointing way..."
Of course. That's the entire purpose of our mission.
He tried to make a funny to smooth over his varmint kerfuffle:
"Those small animals can be ferocious," Romney joked in Dallas after clarifying his remarks. "There were some pretty sad faces around the Romney household on Easter. We had our grandkids there and they were disappointed the Easter bunny didn't come. He heard I was packing heat."
