And this latest, weird twist isn't the worst thing I've seen, but it cries out to be recognized, at least in the category of "Couldn't you people have seen this coming and avoided it? I mean, really?"
Of course I'm talking about Mitt Romney going on "Meet the Press," something he doesn't really like doing because he has trouble controlling the message when somebody gets to ask "questions," and then condemning people for wanting to cut defense spending.
Wasn't there somebody in the Romney campaign whose job it is to be sure that Mitt Romney doesn't condemn his own running mate, Paul Ryan?
And what makes matters worse, wasn't there someone on the team that is supposed to warn Paul Ryan that he can't just say "It wasn't me" on national television and get away with it?
Let's look at the video:
Now let's watch Paul Ryan being interviewed about this by CBS's Norah O'Donnell:
I don't see how they spin their way out of this. Mitt Romney was for his running mate before he was against him. And Paul, Paul, how long do you think you can hide behind word salad to avoid criticisms for past missteps?
This is no way to run a campaign, assuming someone's running it at all.
