Now It’s Romney Targeting the “1%”

I have been resigned the last month or so that Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee.  Here’s a scenario:  if Romney does well in Arizona and outright wins Michigan, no one will be able to compete with him on Super Tuesday.  As a result, money for Rick and Newt will begin to dry-up, while Ron Paul holds out all the way to convention to get Rand on as Veep.  Done.

That what makes this so damn painful to watch:

Pure ready-made DNC attack ad material come late Spring.  Awesome:  [grimy attack ad voice] “Is the GOP on the verge of nominating a flip-flopper from Massachusetts?“  Plus, how can this class warfare rhetoric jazz-up the conservative base?  It won’t — it’ll just annoy us.  The “1%” pay enough.  I’m in the 50.5% and I pay too much!  In truth it’s the 49.5% that needs to pick up the slack!  Our government’s problem is not about revenues, it’s about spending.

While a President Romney is still better than Obama, why do I get the sinking feeling that I’ll likely be attending a Tea Party rally protesting Romney’s big-spending, debt-ballooning, interest-group pandering, weak-kneed RINOism one day?

I hate holding my nose.

Rubio-Paul 2012! (if only)

Latest reports suggest that Romney, Gingrich will both increase debt as their proposed tax cuts exceed their proposed spending cuts.

Sorry, guys, however most of your alternatives sound worse than the incompetent we have to put up with.

Nice try, Oz. Revenues to the federal government have increased every time we reduced tax rates at the federal level. Those analyses are flawed.
