Tea Party Nation leader Judson Phillips, who can’t seem to go more than a few minutes without saying something astonishingly stupid, actually gets one right when he says that Mitt Romney was a terrible candidate for the Republicans to nominate, but still manages to contradict himself in the process:
“You know, Obama ran on the fact he was going to raise taxes, the Republicans put up the worst candidate in history in Mitt Romney, yet Obama allegedly has this mandate,” Phillips said during an appearance on MSNBC. “Well, why did Republicans keep the House if Obama has this great mandate? People don’t want their taxes going up. What people do want is spending cuts.”
And if Romney was so terrible, why did Phillips go out of his way to create a cockamamie plan to have him put into office despite losing the election, an idea so clearly unconstitutional that even the Worldnutdaily quickly had to put a disclaimer on it?
