« Class Warfare? Gingrich, Huntsman, Perry All Pile On Romney For Bain Firings | Main | BCS Title Game »
January 09, 2012

Argument I've Been Making: How Come Romney Is Allowed To Go Cheap-Shot On Everyone Else, But the Minute He Gets Some Cheap-Shot In Return, It's a Crime Against America?

When Romney went after Perry claiming he wanted to end Social Security, and hitting him generally for calling it unconstitutional (it arguably is) and a ponzi scheme (it likely is), people said, "Hey, these are general election liabilities; Perry should have to respond to these charges. The left will make them."

Well, same deal with Bain Capital. This is a general election liability; Romney should have to respond to these charges. The left will hit him on this (and in fact already is).

But instead it's this full-court press that you can't say that.

Why not? Why does Romney get a complete Hall Pass throughout the entire primary season?

It's as if Romney complied a 15-1 record in a season that never actually happened and earned a first round bye, a second round bye, a third round bye, a fourth round bye, a fifth round bye, a sixth round bye, and oh shut up he's going to win anyway so just zip it, punk.

Huntsman: Dao-wha-shieng-do-hyung-shii-mao-bao-dai, which is Mandarin for "Don't Even Think About Voting For Me: Winnin' hearts and minds.

In an interview Friday, the Utah governor turned China ambassador said bluntly that the GOP had lost its equilibrium in the Obama era but predicted it would eventually return to its bearings — and vindicate his own brand of pragmatism.

“I believe in the ideas put forward by Theodore White, the cycles of history,” Huntsman told POLITICO. “I believe we are in one such cycle. I think that cycle ultimately takes us to a sane Republican Party based on real ideas.”

Since Huntsman, I'm told, has a fairly conservative plan (or he claims it's his plan) -- which parts of it does he deem insane? I trust the insane parts are not really offered seriously, but instead are offered to placate the loonies, right?
