    Romney may need to switch from the Grover Nordquist "not one cent more" to a more practical position of saving the middle class's entitlements. The Ryan Plan is a LOSER out of the gate. Only their Lobbyists like that plan.

    SO lets take a poll on whose vote could be improved by Mitt tacking toward the center...

    True. That is why I want Mitt to take the NYT budget test to actually publish how he would balance the Budget. The DC whores are afraid to do anything. We need to see who is on which side.

    Right now BO wants the Clinton tax rates, OK. Thats something. Now we need to know where he would cut stuff. Including Obamacare. Is that still a Budget Buster or not? I keep hearing mixed numbers.

    None of the above, populism is a sinful taboo in the republican party right now, not even sure a major loss would convince them that telling the masses to fuck off is not a good long term strategy.
