Mitt Romney, the liberal Democrat’s choice for president


It was Christmas Holiday party weekend in the neighborhood. Interestingly several folks approached me to say essentially the same thing – “Will you guys* please stop screwing around and just nominate Mitt Romney. Otherwise we’ll be forced to vote for Obama again.”

*I’m the token Republican in a sea of blue state leftists, so naturally they think I have some kind of direct pipeline to either GOP or Vast Right Wing Conspiracy Headquarters, or something. If only they knew…

Almost unanimously they don’t like Obama. The reasons vary (alas some even feel that he hasn’t driven the country far enough to the left). I heard “weak,” “ineffective,” “unqualified,” and more than one wishful lament that a Draft Hillary movement hasn’t gained any traction.

So, what do I make of this? My socialist neighborhood clearly isn’t moving into the Conservative Camp. They recoil in horror at the thought of Newt Gingrich being the nominee. Ditto for Rick Santorum or Michele Bachmann. Rick Perry intrigues them (as does Chris Christie) because both guys stand up for their principles, and the concept of “leadership” is a big factor among the sheeple. But their perception is that Perry is a lousy communicator and thus not “electable.” I guess they’re still looking for a silver-tongued messiah to lead them to the promised land. Which of course is how we got Obama in the first place.

In my mind this really seals Romney’s RINO status. Liberals are comfortable with him because he’s one of them. Ugh.

And in another valid point, it was mentioned that the GOP nominating process this go-round is playing right into Obama’s hands. Which I totally agree with. The Debate Of The Week Circular Firing Squads do nothing to advance our cause, but they sure do provide hundreds of sound bites tailor-made for TV ads aimed at the eventual nominee. Why Reince Priebus agreed to this silliness is beyond me.

I’m intrigued by the softness of Obama’s support here among the die-hard lefty faithful. And I’m sure we can do better than Mitt Romney’s interpretation of Obama Lite. C’mon Rick Perry, your moment awaits.
