Tampa city council members have agreed to abandon their efforts to evict a protesters' camp dubbed "Romneyville," after the Depression-era Hoovervilles, in a restricted area near the GOconvention site. The demands of the encampment, organized by The Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign and Occupy the RNC and featuring pink tents salvaged cheap from the Girl Scouts, include housing, food, healthcare, a living wage job for all, and an end to foreclosures and homelessness. When Mitt Romney goes there later this month, his habitual flip-flopping may make it difficult for some to understand just what he stands for. The folks from Bad Lip Reading help, unforgettably, to translate.
