So far it looks like Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee for President. He doesn't seem like a good choice for a party that wants to present a conservative face but that doesn't seem to matter as long as he is "electable." Who is deciding this a priori electablilty is somewhat vague.
OK, it is true that compared to Obama, Romney is a "conservative" but the same can be said of a lot of politicians not normally considered as such. A good example is: Compared to Obama, Hillary Clinton is a "conservative". That would be a good argument to vote for Hillary? Gods! I hope not.
The lesser of the evils argument has never been compelling to me.
One observer said it didn't matter who the Republicans run since Obama was elected because of the anti-Bush vote and the Republican candidate will elected because of the anti-Obama vote. I have to admit that I find it amusing that the best the Republicans can come up with is Not Obama. Ao, after all the apologetics (pun intended) are through, the campaign boils down to this.
- Has even fewer principles and less integrity than me.
- Is even more two-faced than me.
- Is more delusional and narcissistic than me.
- Will tell even bigger lies than me.
- Will eat you first.
