Not Romney is a step in the right direction.
I like the preacher - JC Watts.
1)There is no reason to believe that anyone knows anything of what went on in Arizona.
2)Romney’s “support” at this stage is about fund raising. He’s not going to raise any money for a guy he is trashing, so that part of this story is clearly absurd.
3)This election is not and never has been about the much ballyhooed “principles of conservatism” because from Day One there was no doubt whatsoever that Congress would be Dem majority. Any lofty conservative principle based proposals are DOA and serve only to galvanize the hatred among the Dems — when what is needed from them grudging acceptance of some less-liberal-than-they’d-prefer USSC Justice or less-surrendering-than-they’d-prefer long term security agreement with Iraq for a permanent troop presence.
So forget floating names that are right wing true believers, because those names don’t bring the swing or blue EVs that are needed.
4) Focus very narrowly on Ohio, Michigan, New Mexico, Wisconsin and Iowa. Frankly, you can narrow that further to Ohio and Michigan. McCain needs one of those two. Of all the names mentioned, only Romney points at one of them.
