How did Mitt do? He seemed flustered at one point and legitimately surprised that he had to answer some of the same questions Bret has asked him in every interview since 2008. On the other hand, Mitt had a great push-back for the flip-flop accusations. I’d love to hear what you think.
It’s gotta be frustrating when Bret Baier picks up DNC talking points instead of actually doing his job and trying to tell the truth. If Bret was just trying to give Mitt a chance to refute the lies, that’s one thing, but it felt like Bret was attacking at some points instead of just asking questions. On Bret’s “Special Report”, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard commentators make the suggestion that Mitt explain the health care issue or complain that Mitt doesn’t explain his flip-flops. Mitt has addressed both of these issues to Bret Baier himself several times in the past, and that is probably a big reason why Mitt was almost dumbfounded as to why he was getting these questions again. If Baier was doing his job, he would save the tape from past interviews and play it to correct people when they falsely assert that Mitt never talks about these issues. To sit idly by while people on his show spew ill-informed information or, even worse, to agree with them, is inexcusable.
Update: It seems Kathryn Lopez from townhall has some sympathy for Mitt.
