Here’s a perfect example of why Dick Morris is a complete fraud. In only 4 days he went from warning Romney not to pick Paul Ryan because his Medicare plan would be almost impossible to defend against to praising the pick as “inspired” and “terrific.” Here’s what he said on August 8:
MORRIS: The problem is that he came out in the first Ryan budget for replacing Medicare with a voucher system. And he’s since backed off that. He said, No, no, you don’t need to do that. But you can keep your current Medicare or go to the voucher system and we’ll make the voucher system so attractive that most people will make that shift. But Obama’s not going to let him get away with that and it would give Obama a really big issue to beat Romney with. So even though I love Paul Ryan, I hope that Romney does not select him.
And here is on August 13, after the pick was made:
MORRIS: He will destroy Biden in the debates. And I am so looking forward to his having a primetime Wednesday night speech at the convention. That speech could be as much of a turning point, not just in the election, but in American political history, as Sarah Palin’s speech was at the 2008 convention because finally he’ll have a large, national audience, where he can really articulate and lay out what his thinking is in terms of the budget, and the disaster that we face if we’re not careful. It could be one of those seminal moments that changes how people think about an issue.” …
“So I think it’s an inspired choice,” Morris concluded. “I think it clearly sets to rest any conservative’s doubt about the intentions of Mitt Romney and clear the decks, we’ve got a fight on our hands.”
Anything it takes to keep himself ingratiated to the Fox News audience.
