I didn't watch the debate last night. At this point I'm too depressed by the idea that Romney is likely going to be the Republican nominee.
I'm sick of the endorsements and commercials that tell us that Romney has the "best chance of beating Obama." Seriously? I feel like we're being told: "This is as good as it gets. You might as well settle." It's like telling a woman that she needs to marry some loser because she's probably not going to get a better offer.
And when has settling ever been a good thing?
I agree with Huntsman's earlier statement that Romney is reminiscent of a well greased weather vein, that I heard quoted yesterday. He goes whatever way the wind blows to get elected. I believe he would say whatever it takes to get elected.
I don't believe for a second that he would fight for the unborn if it wasn't convenient of the trend of the moment.
I've seen too many politicians that were solidly "pro life" sell the unborn down the river over the years to trust a guy with a record like this:
I hate that there's a good chance I'm going to have to vote for this guy in November. Because will I vote for him over Mr. A-Baby-Born-Alive-Should-Be-Put-In-A-Closet-To-Die. You bet.
I'll admit that every time I see him ahead in the polls I want to yell at the TV "Why?!?!?!"
You all know I'm for Santorum. But really anyone who's on that stage would be better that "settling" for this guy because he "might" win.
