The Will to Win

Apparently Paul Ryan is so confident of becoming the next vice president that he has decided to start running ads tomorrow for his re-election to Congress.

He’s not alone in his doubts. Other Republicans are starting to give pointed advice to Romney, fearing that he is on the road to losing the election. The biggest criticism? “Stop being so vague.” Rupert Murdoch advised “Stop fearing far right, which has nowhere else to go.” William Kristol even compared Romney’s campaign to that of Michael Dukakis, pointing out that “Mike Dukakis lost.” Jonah Goldberg called Romney the “No Ideas” candidate.

Meanwhile, Michael Cohen provides plenty of evidence that “Mitt Romney is the worst national politician I’ve ever seen” and talks about his “epic incompetence”.

    If “Mitt Romney is the worst national politician” then what does that say about the rest of the field of recent Republican candidates and the Party that nominated him?

    Did you read Michael Cohen’s article? Cohen was talking about Romney’s performance as a politician trying to get elected, not about how he would govern as president. He makes a pretty strong case.

    Yes — read the article. I wonder how this stuff keeps out of the infomercial news cycles.

    I know “a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest”, but I keep hitting the wall of “people are reasonable and assess things logically” with my head and getting the same result: “Nope! They’re not.”

    Hi, me again — excuse the last inchoherent rant. What I really wanted to say was that Romney is really the ideal candidate. Didn’t Norquist say they just needed somebody to sign papers anyway??? 🙂
