Believe it or not, I’ve only been up for about thirty minutes. I’m under the weather today.
I would still be asleep except my CNN Alerts on my iPad went nuts. Turns out Rick Santorum is out of the race.
It was inevitable.
Mitt Romney’s campaign has used a money advantage to shut out the competition. As I said when he won Ohio, Romney will be the nominee.
The way forward for Romney depends on the economy. For the longest time I did not think he had much of a shot against the President, but as I’ve said several times recently, the economy seems to be struggling, which gives Romney an opening.
Between a struggling economy and a President who wants to have it both ways in rhetoric and in practice wants to side with those hostile to the idea of American exceptionalism, Romney has an opening if he’ll aggressively take it.
If I may be so bold, I think the greatest thing Karl Rove or Reince Priebus or Mitt Romney or any outside group could do right now is introduce the American Public to what I’ve started doing on my radio show: recounting the amazing adventures of President Both Ways.
As Rory Cooper noted on Twitter, on August 26, 2011, President Both Ways claimed the Buffett Rule would “stabilize our debt and deficits for the next decade.”
And now? President Both Ways claims, “No one ever suggested that implementing Buffett Rule would contribute in large measure to reducing the deficit.”
President Both Ways strikes again.
