Romney: "Electable." Really? Part 235

The "He's the Only Electable Candidate" line is a trap.

...Bain's investors may have bought some companies with the idea that they would be downsized, broken up and sold off to make money but that just freed up capital that would invested in more profitable ones elsewhere.

That's a fantastic theory and creative destruction is a necessary part of a successful economy. It's also a losing political message.

...Just like the costs and benefits of what Romney did at Bain, we need to consider all the costs and potential benefits of nominating him, especially in this economy.

Aside from the economy, can Romney really campaign against ObozoCare?

Romney ran Massachusetts.  So he'll talk about "high taxes"?  "Too much regulation"?  "Gay Marriage"?

Be serious.

Don't like Santorum?  Fine.  Look again at Perry.  Look at Gingrich.  Even Huntsman.

But don't for one second think that "Romney is the electable candidate."  He's a PR disaster for the (R) Party.  He's the very picture of BigBank/Big Capital.  And that won't play well in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, or Wisconsin.

Don't believe that?

Look again at what happened in Iowa, after a 20-year campaign by Romney.

Added:  Or you can look at how this will be edited by the Obozo Machine.

Even MORE:

RUSH [Limbaugh]: There is a story on the Drudge Report today from Sarah Palin in which Sarah Palin says that the White House wants Mitt Romney to be the Republican nominee. Now, not only did I tell you that the Broncos were gonna beat the Steelers, for months I have been telling you that the Democrats want Romney — and you all know it. You’ve been listening here and you’ve heard people call me and tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about, that I’m full of it, that they’re scared of Romney. “Romney is the only guy who can win.” And I have said, “No,” and I’ve stood tough, and I’ve said, “They can’t wait for him. What’s Occupy Wall Street all about but running against Romney? He’s the Wall Street guy on our roster — and then Romneycare,” and I’ve laid it all out.

Nice to know that they think just like I do!!

I vote none of the above.
I elect to vote outside your narrowly defined box.
I elect to vote for the candidate you do not even mention.

" Don’t vote for any candidate who asks me to support grave intrinsic evil as policy....

What applies to Gingrich on Torture in this article also applies to Santorum

None of these guys are electable. These guys might as well be rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

You're better off with the liberal Republican currently residing in the White House. Come November you'll vote for Romney even though he's further to the left than Obama. Strange days indeed.
