A Line Too Far

By on 12.6.07 | 1:34PM

I think whoever thought these lines were a good idea may be queasy about now: "Americans do not respect believers of convenience. Americans tire of those who would jettison their beliefs, even to gain the world."
Those who raved about The Speech are getting feedback like this and others label it the worst line of The Speech. This is where some self-awareness would have helped the Romney Team-- if you understand the biggest problem for your guy(credibility/conviction) you shouldn't advertise it in neon lights in the most picked over speech of the campaign. (And no I don't for a minute think Romney "wrote it himself" unless he's spending time pawing through books for John Adams quotes.)
