Place this side to side with the repubs saying that they're re-inventing the party to be more inclusive. Any cognitive dissonance ?

And Didn't Romney disavow his 47% comment ? But now that he has nothing to loose, he's returning to that mindset in his talks. He wouldn't lie would he ?

(timeline from saying the 47%, to the video being released, to a week or two of saying that it was inelegantly put, to saying that isn't what he believes, back to this).

I've been watching The Men Who Built America series on History Channel, and the episode that covered Carnegie and the steel mill union was telling. The narration talked about mill workers being forced to work 12-hour days for six days each week, escalating numbers of resulting safety incidents and mercenaries shooting mill workers in the back as they fled. Then they'd cut to interviews with business men from today, and they seemed almost wistful talking about the good old days before unions and government regulations. It was really disturbing in light of the makers/takers crap that went on in the election.
