No offense intended but what is going to stop Mitt for brains from making as many mistakes on his high court choices Geotge HW Bush did? While I agree with your general premise another moderate Republican does not guarantee good court decisions. He might be our damn choice again but after MCCain, Dole, Bush I, and Gerald Ford why is a moderate progressive such a great choice? Getting tired of pluggig my nose when voting. Romney would have made a better impression onme if he would have attended the Associated Depressed Editors Meeting and said “With respect pound sand” They will not be kind to Mitt, so why play. Mitt better work on gaining the base instead of calling the right wing purists. Grow a pair Mitt, the only states you have won are those that OStalin will carry, ME, Mass, Vt, Michigan, Il, WI. Again witn respect, Mitt better win us over because he moves to the middle better than McLame without a war hero record.
Romney knows we have nowhere else to go (as Obama does with his base); as somebody pointed out, both parties are bringing us to the same place, while the Dems are just doing it more quickly.
