    Cain, Romney, and the Danger of the Sweeping Conclusion - Gwen Ifill - NationalJournal.com





    Add that to Rush's evaluation of Romney in February 2008:

    "I think now, based on the way the campaign has shaken out, that there probably is a candidate on our side who does embody all three legs of the conservative stool, and that’s Romney."

    yeah. Alot seem to have forgotten that. But then the nation has changed sine 2008. And not for the better. We have changed.

    I dont begrudge anyone who has changed their mind.

    But you have to put that in something called "perspective".

    In 2008, Romney was probably the best selection for their slice of the party. Huckabee was feared because he was an economic populist. The scariest thing in the world to the GOP establishment is conservative populism, especially when it has an evangelical bent. So Cain and Romney and Limbaugh and all the other folks who live in mortal fear of the working stiffs of the country had to stop this guy at any cost.

    Even if it meant backing a sure-fire loser.

    Except in 2008, everyone realized the Android from Planet Kolob was a sure-fire loser. He came in third. So they eventually all held their noses and voted for McCain.

    And if you are conservative like you claim you are, aren't you just a little disturbed by Welfare for Broadcasters Queen Gwen Awful endorsing your boy?

    You mean other than doing the story?

    The MSM, all liberal, loves the Android from Planet Kolob.

    Have you ever asked yourself why?

    Not sure why it matter. Cain wasn't a Candidate 4 Years ago. What are you implying? That Because Cain Endorsed Romney 4 Years ago, that means Romney is a better candidate?

    Absolutely.


    I have problems with Romney as well. But come on man, I would take Romney any day of the week over another 4 years of Obama.
