The Romney Question at PowerLine and in other Republican Circles

I’m OK–You’re OK                         

by Scott Johnsons   at  PowerLine     (The “John” Mr. Johnson refers to is John Hinderaker, a  fellow colleague at PowerLine.    PowerLine is a very provincial, folksy-like sort of group.)

Johnson writes:

“John’s support of Mitt Romney is implicit in his comments on Rick Santorum, as it was in his comments on Newt Gingrich. John thinks that Romney presents Republicans with the best chance of beating Obama in November. He is therefore frustrated that they haven’t lined up behind Mitt in service to the cause.

Mitt is an inspirational candidate. The problem is that what he inspires is intense apathy among a substantial number of conservatives and Republicans. They (we) resist him. Santorum is the recycled non-Romney who now benefits from this resistance. He may be the last non-Romney standing. Among the previous beneficiaries of the resistance to Romney are Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Santorum, Gingrich and now Santorum again. The logic of a Romney candidacy has been insufficient so far to wear down the resistance of a large share of conservatives and Republicans.

I understand the resistance, but I am lukewarm on the non-Romneys as well. If I had to choose a candidate among them, I would choose Romney. I think he is the least bad of the lot.

The resistance to Romney among a large part of the base of the Republican Party, however, suggests to me that Romney himself would be less than a stellar candidate against Obama. He’s got problems that the non-Romneys have successfully exploited. Romney’s defense of Romneycare in the debates has been a recurrent thumb in the eye to the not inconsiderable number of Republicans for whom repeal of Obamacare is a priority along with with fiscal and economic issues.

Romney himself must know he is not long on passionate supporters. His claim has been to superior electability against Obama among a weak field of GOP candidates. But the failure to inspire affection if not passion itself reflects a weakness in a candidate for high elective office.

There are other weaknesses in Mitt’s candidacy; Ben Domenech explores them in “The trouble with Mitt.” The attack by Romney and his surrogates on Santorum for having voted to increase the debt limit when he was in the Senate reflects some of these other weaknesses. Mitt must think we’re really, really stupid.

The inclination of Republican primary voters and caucus goers to support Gingrich or Santorum is not the sign of a character flaw or mental defect on their part. It is a sign that Romney is a problematic candidate for the party whose standard bearer he seeks to be. Decrying the failure of Republican voters for failing to fall in line behind him seems to me something less than a winning argument.”

Comment:   I have had and still have much of the same reservations colleagues known and unknown  in Republican circles of February, 2012 politics.   I’d choose the candidate who has the  family,  the basic character and its decent products and presidential stature and maturity  in business and politics of Mitt Romney, with the knowledge of American politics of history and today and quickness of tongue without the meanness accompanying it of Newt Gingrich, and the religious confidence  of the huge Roman Catholic vote behind him  of decent guy, Rick Santorum,  bearing all of the energy and  devotion to his cause as  Ron Paul…. ALL WRAPPED UP INTO A SINGLE  CANDIDATE.

Dear friends, that cannot happen, so get over it.    The best candidate and the best candidate to become the forty fifth president of the United States is Mitt Romney.    He is the BEST contrast measured against  the Marxist sour apples, bipolar  antiAmerican Obama….smile  against frown,  wife a cinderella against a witch, a business success against a Marxist community organizer, and Lover of America against its Marxist foe,   an American versus someone  raised in a foreign culture, a Mormon against a Harvard LawSchool Marxist.   I’ll take the Governor any day.

That is a pretty strong hand for one candidate against the other despite Romneycare against Solyndrra and a hundred of other crimes against America committed by Barack Hussein Obama.   

Start lising them yourself……but you’ll need tablet after tablet of paper…….or to be more modern, hundreds of pages of computer listings.   Do take heart also, that Rick Santorum is strengthening as a candidate.   He is a wonderful American boy scout  who hopefully will  spend his energy exposing  Obama’s Marxism,  America’s real foe, rather than fellow conservatives.    Hope Mitt will follow suit.
