Ghostly Voice Gives Mitt Romney Some Debate Help


What exactly was that weird, whispery voice we heard between last night's question to Mitt about Reagan and Social Security and Romney's answer? Either Ronald Reagan is giving help from beyond the grave or Mitt was wearing a wire.

The question, from Tim Russert: "I know you're a big fan of Ronald Reagan. Will you do for Social Security what Ronald Reagan did in 1983?"

The ghostly voice says "Raise taxes." Or, "Raised taxes." Because that's what Reagan did in 1983: raised payroll taxes, supposedly to shore up Social Security. So it's a trick question from Russert, get it?

Anyway, you can see Mitt's eyes register the whispered hint, and then he says, "I'm not gonna raise taxes."

Russert, possibly furious over being out-maneuvered by Romney's wired-in research team, then dully delivers his gotcha about how Reagan raised taxes.

So, Mitt Romney is definitely presidential. He wears a wire just like George W. Bush!

Donald Trump held one of his televised cabinet meetings today in which he railed about the terrible Democrats who forced the current border crisis (at a time when illegal border crossings are actually lower than usual). In what's sure to be his favorite phrase on Twitter for the next few days, Trump blamed "extremist open-border Democrats" for all the problems he brought on himself with his family separation policy, and explained that Democrats were simultaneously hurting illegal immigrants AND the rest of America by forcing Normal America to accept Central Americans who fled to the US. It made loads of sense! And then things got ... less so.
