…wherein yours truly proceeds to field-dress Mittens and Coulter.
So! Coulter is backing Romney! How exciting, yeh? Sure, I get it BUT…
ON the one hand, Coulter’s pre-emptive laundering of Noot’s laundry disarms both the Left and Knute’s “conservative” brethren.
On the other, her “support” of Mittens comes off rather as damning with faint praise.
As to this business of the Media “pushing” alternatives to Mitt – I don’t hear that at all on radio news, but I’ll take Eric’s word on that.
There’s a dynamic at work, though, that scores media tolerance for Romney somewhat differently: They are pretty much apiece with liberal RINO’s misguided belief that a Conservative or Libertarian will “lose the middle.”
The point of Reagan wasn’t that he was Ronny the moovee star so much as he was a confident Goldwater styled Libertarian-Conservative. (He was hated then by “mainstream” statist Republicans and remains a vampiric terror to them still.)
More to the point, ANY of the present Republican field of candidates can beat Obama. ANY. Barry has the most pathetic, vulnerable track record in modern American history. The #Occupier of the White House makes Carter look good with increasing numbers, even on the Left.
A majority of precious “undecideds,” “middlers,” “moderates” and “independents” are now sick of this Administration. They don’t hate America the way it does; and… They’re getting the message loud and clear that only a pro-small-business administration that will reduce Government burden and actually unwind – UNWIND – three or four decades of eco-statism and crony-fascism is capable of returning America to Security and Prosperity. Mitt ain’t the guy.
The conceit that Mitt is the “only” winnable candidate buys into the same arguments that have given us a consistent string of Statists and RINO’s for decades. The evil of William F. Buckley’s effeminate, proximious conservative notion that “we must nominate the most conservative candidate that can win” is its strategic naiveté. That yielding of intellectual ground time and again has sent us candidates the likes of John McCain. Such a glorious string of victories for Liberty that has been over the last five decades, huh?
