But… Brawndo's Got What Plants Crave!


Another bit of weirdness from the GOP debate that was lost in the Rudy-Ron Paul maelstrom: Mitt Romney's answer to the 24 question.

Some people have said, we ought to close Guantanamo. My view is, we ought to double Guantanamo.

What made this jarring was who said it: A multi-millionaire businessman who got rich in turnarounds, consulting failing companies and helping them turn a profit. Does anyone think Romney ever told a failing business to confront one of its controversial (and deeply flawed) programs by "doubling" it? Probably not; silly, unworkable pandering like that only works in a presidential campaign.
