It’s not so much that today’s Republican politicians reject traditional, one-nation conservatism. They don’t even know it exists. There are few people on the conservative side who’d be willing to raise taxes on the affluent to fund mobility programs for the working class. There are very few willing to use government to actively intervene in chaotic neighborhoods, even when 40 percent of American kids are born out of wedlock. There are very few Republicans who protest against a House Republican budget proposal that cuts domestic discretionary spending to absurdly low levels.
Quote:
Some people blame bad campaign managers for Romney’s underperforming campaign, but the problem is deeper. Conservatism has lost the balance between economic and traditional conservatism. The Republican Party has abandoned half of its intellectual ammunition. It appeals to people as potential business owners, but not as parents, neighbors and citizens.

He'll be back even if he loses. I think you can count on that. Third time's the charm?

If he's all the GOP can come up with in the future, then yes, Romney won't fade away any time soon.

If Romney is even mentioned as a relevant part of Republican politics in 2016, the party may as well just dissolve itself. They are in desperate of a new type of candidate - someone about whom people can actually get excited.

My conservative buddy is convinced Chris Christie has to be the candidate in 2016. He says he "can't wait for it."

"President Obama has grabbed a significant lead over Mitt Romney in Ohio and holds a slender edge in Florida, according to two new polls by the Washington Post that indicate there are fresh hurdles in the way of the Republican nominee’s best route to victory in the Electoral College.

Among likely voters, Obama is ahead of Romney in Ohio by 52 to 44 percent. In Florida, the president is up 51 to 47 percent, a numerical but not statistically significant edge. Among all registered Florida voters, Obama is up nine percentage points. "
Grim for Mitt.

Ohio all by itself costs him the election.
Mitt's going to have to score a TKO in the first debate or this thing is over.
He's got to win FL, OH, NC, VA, and at least one more that McCain didn't win.
Grim indeed.

Yep. I even conceded that Mitt might win Florida, but even that's looking unlikely.

Madonna brought her MDNA Tour to Washington, D.C. on Monday night, and added a dose of politics to the show.

"Y'all better vote for fucking Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. Now that's some amazing shit," she said. "It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddamnit."

It was the weakest part of what was a fairly visually amazing show. She's got a potty mouth, too, and was trying to be all gangster.
