An interesting take on "forward-looking"

Something tells me that Mitt Romney wasn't paying much attention to the other speakers at the recent meeting of the National Council for a New America in Northern Virginia.

"It's time for us to listen a little bit, learn a little bit," said former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who advised Republicans to work on the party's message and "not be so nostalgic."

"I would say you can't beat something with nothing. The other side has something. I don't like it, but they have it," said Bush, who repeatedly praised President Obama's tactical approach to politics, and commended his 2008 campaign as "forward-looking."

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney compared the GOP to Americans fighting the British during the Revolutionary War. "We are the party of the revolutionaries, they [Democrats] are the party of the monarchists," he told the overwhelmingly Republican crowd, saying the Republicans needed to "once again lead the American Revolution."

Governor Romney then went on to share more forward-looking insights, comparing the Democrats to the Medici family, the Visigoths, and those mean, tool-wielding apes in the opening scenes of "2001: A Space Oydssey."
