    Romney's biggest negative is that he's seen as elitist. So, if Republicans wanted to win, they'd drop elitist stuff like ending the Estate Tax and reducing Capital Gains taxes to zero. Romney's VP choice suggests he's doubling down on elitism. Are tax breaks for the rich that important?

    How about alienating the Ron Paul supporters by stealing his delegates? Instead of taking a page from Ron Paul's playbook on liberty to expand the tent, the GOP is in the news for adding populist planks to their platform.

    And, of course, they picked Romney as their candidate, a man who doesn't energize any of the GOP base because we all know he's really a social liberal, even if he's not militant about it.

    here is another perspective....

    the govt. gives tax breaks and subsidies to farmers.

    Gives tax breaks for real estate and othe rindustrires.

    Why not inheritence tax breaks and capital gains too?

    He's a liberal on the levels of Obama.

    He supported
    -Gay rights for the past 25 years. Left of Obama.
    -He supports Abortion, slightly right of Obama's post birth stance.
    -He Supports the Mandate. Left of Obama.
    -He supports Global warming, maybe right on what he would do about it,.
    -He supports gun control, right of Obama, near Clinton.
    -He supports bail outs

    This guy is in many cases much like Obama. No the republican party doesn't want to win!

    For the one reason that it could cost Romney the election.

    The irony is that you people claim he's left of Obama, so why such vehement opposition? Why do you feel so threatened?
