20. From Rasmussen: “Romney 45%, Obama 39%.”
They have been saying a generic Republican could beat him. They don’t get more generic than Mitt Romney.
And as Ron Paul peaks, a great many people are going to find Romney’s very inoffensiveness preferable.
I really hope Ron Paul doesn’t get the nomination, because the media is going to put him in a White Robe faster than you can say “Stormfront,” and Obama will win in an obligatory landslide.
ROGER SIMON: ”If Ron Paul is not a racist, he is certainly terrible at picking employees and colleagues.”
Ace remains a right-wing favorite for several reasons: his blog has a bracing, Fuck-You attitude which diverts nothing from it’s thoroughgoing geekiness, and his commenters, for sheer entertainment, may be the best in the blogosphere (so Breitbart thinks, anyway). But more than this, is Ace himself as a writer. He has a style equally laid-back and brainy, mixing, as it were, the mediciney hobo-blood of Serious Commentary with a spoonful of sugary Valu-Rite. Ace’s long-form rants are digestible, which makes them persuasive.
So it should suprise no one that, when Ace lays it out and says why he still backs Perry, he makes a strong case. Read the whole thing, of course, but in a nutshell, Perry is the guy who knows how to do what needs doing, because, like Reagan, he’ll only do a few things. He’ll be more conservative than Romney, less erratic than Gingrich, and not a yammering, goon-flecked Bircher or up-jumped three-term Representative with more spirit than sense.
It meets the same standard of proof.
I am also told that Stacy McCain is willing to consider the idea, as long as it means Gingrich is not the nominee.
I'm just telling you as a friend...
