Quote of the Day
On this statement by Mitt Romney statement outside a coal-fired power plant when he was governor of Massachusetts: “I will not create jobs or hold jobs that kill people, and that plant—that plant—kills people.”
Steven Hayward says, at The Eternal Cluelessness of the Romney Mind: “Where to begin with this kind of idiocy? And if we’re going to have that kind of idiocy, why not just elect Al Gore?”
I believe Republicans will be making a huge mistake if they pick Romney as their nominee. John McCain was thought to be the one most likely to defeat Obama in 2008, but Democrats and their pals in the media knew better. They also wanted McCain to be the Republican nominee because they knew Republicans were dead wrong in thinking McCain could defeat Obama. The only Republican in 2008 that could have defeated Obama, if any could that year, would have needed to be a genuine conservative who could articulate conservatism the way Ronald Reagan did, or at least was willing to try. That wasn’t McCain, and it’s not Romney now either.
2012 should be much easier for Republicans with the country now disillusioned and fed up with Obama. But never underestimate Republicans’ ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, and choosing Romney could do just that.
Democrats and their media pals are once again letting it be known which Republican they prefer in 2012, and it’s Romney. That should set off alarm bells.
Oh, and David Frum is supporting Romney. That’s the Kiss of Death.
