Willard has no compelling reason to move to the right. So he won’t. It’s just as simple as that.

Shhhhh....they don't know that yet. They haven't carefully dissected Mitt's comments, as after the Aurora shootings when he declared that bi-partisan gun control is "the kind of legislation I like."

What kind of margin will Republicans have in the House? It is 25 seats right now, so imagine a tax increase gets pushed by Mitt. Let's just call it a subtle tax increase where they perform the mysterious magic called "closing loopholes" and the get rid of the mortgage deduction but keep the rest of that mess we call a tax code.

Or let's say that he calls for letting the Bush tax cuts expire.

All of the Democrats + 26 Republicans (whose only concern, they will say, is supporting "their" president) will get it through the Hoouse over the objections of Tea Party newcomers. Bi-partisan and "that's the kind of legislation he likes".

The Senate will be trickier, but senators are slickier. They, too, would bemoan letting their president fail, so at present, I believe, they would need only 8 Rino senators to prevent filibusters and give us a tax increase called a "closed loophole." (BTW, Mitt is famous for that kind of tax increase in Massachusetts.)

He didn't even try for a 2d term in Mass. Imagine if he has the same plan as president.

A liberal Republican is actually more dangerous than a liberal democrat. "Compromise" and "bi-partisanship" is a sacrament to them.

Now you're scaring me. My liberal republican governor (Rick Snyder) has said that he may not run for a second term in 2014. How ever I'm still suggesting that he's on the short list for VP now.

“He didn’t even try for a 2d term in Mass. Imagine if he has the same plan as president.”

I’d forgotten that. There is also something to recall about history: 2 term presidents usually accomplish little during their second term as compared to their first.

If willard has no desire to be a two term President, and he might not, then he can spend 4 years governing to the left of hussein and there will be not a thing anyone can do about it other than lament it.
