>>> there's a saying, clear eyes, full heart, can't lose. clear eyes, full heart, can't lose. clear eyes, full heart, can't lose.
>> mitt romney clearly has a great deal of affection for that iconic line from the nbc drama "friday night lights," but does "friday night lights" that have much love for mitt romney ? the answer arrived in a form of a letter from the show's creator. to quote mr. berg, i was not thrilled when i saw you have plagiarized this expression clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose. a double tackle there from mr. berg. he continued with a third hit on romney . please come up with your own campaign slogan. that's a bit of unnecessary roughness, isn't it? however, unlike most writers, mr. berg apparently doesn't take it as a compliment when any old tom, dick, or willard quotes his work. that puts the republican nominee in a difficult spot. if he can't borrow a rousing line from a fictionalized drama about texas high school football, then where can he turn for inspirational rhetoric? fortunately, movies and tv have furnished mr. romney with plenty of other options. greed is good from oliver stone 'sing with quaul street" quickly comes to mind. then how far would you go to become someone else from "the talented mr. ripley." but for summing up mr. romney 's propensity to change like the wind, we decided to go for a line from "my big fat greek wedding ," don't let your past dictate who you are, even if that past was yesterday. stay
