The old MR haters on FR are fading out fast.
An inaccurate observation to put it charitably. But Mittbots have always had a problem with truth. Heck, with Clinton, it was just the word "is". With Mittens it's every word in his lexicon.
Not only has Mittens aided and abetted the attacks on all Conservatives and Conservatism in general, but he was behind the attacks and continues to this day funding and undermining Conservatism.
Newt might not be perfect, but he's not hostile to Conservatism. Romney is. If you support Romney you are not a Conservative. It is axiomatic.
The bottom line is America collapses regardless of who gets elected unless the candidate is willing to cut close to 50% of government as it currently stands.
I believe Romney has about as much chance of doing that as he does of being able to kick Barrack through the uprights from 45 yards.
Newt, probably not, but a lot better odds than either of the current “front runners” from the parties. Paul, better than 50%, but then you couldn’t ever convince the people that have him tagged for foreign policy issies that foreign policy is irrelevant if you’re broke and your country is burning down from the inside.
We are literally on the razors edge of it being to late to take the medicine to cure our ills, and if we DO take it, we’re still going to be miserably sick for a while, but we’d better damn well take it soon.
I doubt that - but it is likely that Romney may just get himself elected by the anybody-but-Obama factor. What do you think the chances are that FR will ever support the guy? I mean *really* embrace him, right down to the "Day in the life of.." threads?
What a pity that we're presented with another Jimmy Carter as the incumbent - his ineptitude in full bloom - and the best we can offer up to counter that is a slightly less unpleasant liberal.
Neah. We still hate him. We just hate Obama more. And we’re trying hard to find some sort of silver lining.
Unfortunately, everything about Mitt that looks like a silver lining usually turns out to be, at best, tin.
