I’m no Romney fan, of course, but suddenly he’s under attack for being a capitalist? From Republicans? Yes, the “I like being able to fire people” comment was unwise. And thanks for that slip, Mitt. There’s an audio that’ll play a million times between now and November. But other candidates attacking him for success in the free market? Oh, the horror!
Still, I actually like the GOP circular firing squad. Hopefully it’ll work. Let the Elephants convene in Tampa Bay with all the candidates riddled with holes. Then forget who wants to be President and draft who is needed. The Ryan/Rubio ticket.
(Allen West is also acceptable.)
Obviously this can’t happen, because I’ve stated thatAmericais dead. AU.S.that elects Ryan and Rubio hasn’t given up the ghost. Which would mean I was wrong, so…it must be impossible.
Allahpundit doesn’t think Ryan could win because he’s not well-known. Bah. That works both ways; the Ruling Class and its attack gerbils would have only ten weeks for lies and deceit. And debates with Obama? Total annihilation of the Whiny One. Ryan would politely destroy Barack by contrasting his words and deeds vis-à-vis the economy. Ryan knows what’s important. I doubt he’d let himself be distracted from that.
UPDATE—These guys are maddening. Rick Perry imitates Occupy Wall Street with his Romney attacks, then issues libertarian screeds:
I will eliminate the Departments of Commerce, Energy and Education, gut the activist EPA, freeze bureaucrat salaries and make Congress part-time.
I’ve got a vested interest in a threatened Department, yet that’s still music to my ears. It’s not nearly enough to save America, but it would be a good start.
