If It's Romney vs Obama
You might as well kiss the Rule of Law goodbye.
When a man can pick up the phone and get $10 million from the people on the other end, does it make you curious as to who exactly is on the other end of that phone?
It makes me nervous. I found Huckabee to be a delightful punch line, Sarah to be a fame-crazed camera hog with an empty head, and Trump to be an entertaining sideshow. Romney worries me because it appears that very wealthy and powerful people would like him to be the Republican candidate. I strongly suspect that these people pressured Huckabee to stay on the sidelines. I suspect that these people also support Obama financially and would just like to make sure the deck is completely stacked.
Romney's task now is simple: co-opt just enough of the libertarian message, apologize just enough for state interventions he supported in the past, and promise just enough to be a tough fiscal conservative. This, and his plastic man persona, should be enough to win the primary.
If it is Romney vs Obama, there is no choice. There is only the continued destruction of liberty.
