It takes a hypocrite.

"It takes a hypocrite."

Former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) said last week that Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) is wrong when she says “it takes a village” to raise a child. “I think it’s time for us to recognize every child deserves a mother and a father,” Romney said. “The statement, however, runs counter to what The Boston Globe quoted him as saying in 1998: ‘Hillary Clinton is very much right, it does take a village, and we are a village and we need to work together in a non-skeptical, no-finger-pointing way.'”

UPDATE: We would be loathe not to mention Romney’s explanation: “On Monday, Romney’s campaign said his Globe comments were about public-private partnerships, not families. Romney was referencing corporations, not parents, the campaign said.”
