Romney can go FOAD for all I care. Let him have his precious control of the burnt out husk of the GOP in 2012. It looks like us conservatives get to wander in the wilderness for 40 years.
You guys are going to have to get a new hobby.
Romney’s net worth is about 1/2 of what it was in January of this year. That costs not just him. It costs his kids and grandkids, too. The market has savaged him.
He’s not running again. For anything. Nothing in government could possibly pay him enough to have a shot at recovering his portfolio. He likely would have turned down any job McCain offered.
I think the folks on FR need to wake up and look at the world around them. It’s A Different World Than It Was Even As Recently As 1 September 2008. The markets are devastated. The net worth of the US of A is devastated.
And . . . what happened from mid Sept to late October is essentially the only reason McCain is not president elect. Not policy. Not campaigning style. Not Palin. Not Romney.
Money. The 3% of people who had to change their minds to beat Obama voted to punish the GOP brand for what happened in October. Just the same way they will punish Obama in 2012 for $250/barrel oil.
It doesn’t matter what abortion position there is. Or guns. Or gay marriage. Or missile defense in Poland. Or a middle name of Hussein.
People lost their life savings in October, and 3% made their choice.
Now relax, forget the hated Romney, the hated McCain and the hated anything else. Nothing matters for the next 4 years but the price of oil and the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Any talk of policy is utterly silly because for both sides . . . there’s no money to fund anything.
