Commentary By Ron Beasley
Update: Here is the entire Will column: Mitt Romney, the pretzel candidate.
I'ts even more damning than the snippet below.
It is CW that Mitt Romney is the choice of the Republican establishment. As opposed to the clown show that is the rest of the Republican candidates he is the only one who might actually beat Obama. Now there is no one who is more Republican establishment than George Will so I was surprised to see he had a Romney hit piece:
Romney, supposedly the Republican most electable next November, is a recidivist reviser of his principles who is not only becoming less electable, he might damage GOP chances of capturing the Senate: Republican successes down the ticket will depend on the energies of the tea party and other conservatives, who will be deflated by a nominee whose blurry profile in caution communicates only calculated trimming. Republicans may have found their Michael Dukakis, a technocratic Massachusetts governor who takes his bearings from �data� ... Has conservatism come so far, surmounting so many obstacles, to settle, at a moment of economic crisis, for THIS?
Now of course everything he says is true but why is he saying it? Is it because the Republican establishment willing to let thy Tea Party their way in 2012 and get soundly beaten. This might give the Republican establishment a chance to get their party back.
