There's the tell.
Brooks knows Romney is going to tinker with Obamacare and all the socialist workings of the federal government. Not repeal it and throw it in the trash, but replace it with a more workable socialist health care solution.
That's what Brooks is looking for and what Romney will provide - a toned-down Obama.
Personally, I want a politician who will blow the political system up and tear down the wreckage. Since I'm not running, I'll have to vote for the candidate most likely to bring real, government-shrinking change.
Romney should be selling used cars, to suckers like Brooks.
So why should we listen to a self-confessed sap?
Romney is this year's choice by the Stupid Party to gracefully lose. Sort of like Dole without the charisma.
