As predicted? More like as forced upon us. I think Reagan was the last guy who was not hand picked by the 1 party system!:)

As predicted, Mitt Romney won the Florida presidential primary (see here). Next up? Caucuses in Nevada and Maine on February 4th (here). Since the Florida primary was only open to registered Republicans (from here), I thought Romney’s victory particularly disappointing.

If Romney wins the Republican nomination, I believe the odds favor Obama in the general election. Other than the fact he is not Obama, Romney has done little to distinguish himself. Romney claims he can create jobs, but his record and his political philosophy provide little support for that claim. As the creator of Romneycare, the program model for Obamacare, Romney has proven himself almost as Liberal as Obama. Big government does not create jobs. In fact, such unethical programs destroy nations.

So what will happen in the general election? Obama cannot run on his record. It’s a disaster. So Obama will run negative ads against…

    Although taken out of context I predict this “poor people” gaff has finished Romney.

      It ain’t a gaffe, it is actually a good point. Poor folks in America have many places to go for help, and sadly, they are from the federal government. I don’t like when the media takes these snippets out of context, no matter who said them. There are enough negatives to Mitt, that these types of tactics are not needed.

    Yes, you are right.

    Well, he got The Donald’s endorsement today. But no one could ever confuse Trump with a conservative. (It must be the hair–Mitt & Donald have got that going for sure).

    Thanks for the link.

    What Romney said about the rich, the poor, and the middle class really is not new with him. He has repeatedly made it clear that he feels the pain of middle class. He so much wants to help us. Nonetheless, he talks relatively little about getting the government out of our lives.

    Here is a summary of his Tax Policy (from

    • Maintain marginal rates at current levels
    • Further reduce taxes on savings and investment
    • Eliminate the death tax
    • Long-term goal: pursue a flatter, fairer, simpler structure
    • Lower the corporate income tax rate to 25 percent
    • Transition to a “territorial” tax system

    It says some nice things, but it is not very specific. Generally, I think Romney is okay with the status quo. That is what makes him an establishment guy.
