The right wingers who are prematurely celebrating are delusional. Two days ago they were happy with the Romney tax plan, which includes a 20% tax cut for millionaires, elimination of capital gains taxes and a steep tax increase on the middle class.

Is their Obama hatred so strong that no matter what Romney says they will embrace it, including the fact that he alternately decried Obamacare while praising the identical Romneycare from utterance to utterance, once again proving he stands for absolutely nothing? That was a stupid question. Of course their hatred knows no bounds, as does their willful ignorance.
