A guest submission from Rochelle Edvalson

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the DNC Chairwoman, is heading the the GOP Debate in Tampa. It’s in an effort to paint the GOP as extreme for wanting Cut, Cap, and Balance, and for support of the Ryan Plan. No news there, however, she seems to have her target set on one GOP candidate in particular. According to Politico:

Democrats are trying to keep Mitt Romney from carving out space to Perry’s left — a mark, perhaps, of who they see as a tougher general election candidate.

She will lay in to Mitt Romney’s outright hypocrisy on the issue. Romney thinks he can get to the left of Rick Perry on Social Security – but Romney’s support for privatizing Social Security is as hostile and dangerous to the program as Perry’s rhetoric and attitude. Gambling Social Security in the stock market as Romney would do would devastate the program and we’re not going to let Mitt Romney get away with pretending he has any virtue at all on the issue,” the source said.

Well, while the Democratic party may be experts on hypocrisy, I think defining another person’s virtues might be best left up to someone else.
