LETTER: Romney’s trapeze act is enough to give you whiplash

Mitt Romney’s campaign reminds me of watching a trapeze act at the circus.       All his flying turns and twists in mid- air, swinging wildly from one trapeze bar to another with breathtaking speed; it really is quite entertaining.       First he swings to the left and supports a woman’s […]
