Brett Stevens pushes back against the air that is rapidly deflating from the Mitt Romney presidential balloon.
Mitt Romney has managed to piss off almost everyone this year: Lew Rockwell libertarians who are furious over the GOP’s treatment of Ron Paul, VDARE nativists who are demoralized over Romney’s swtich on immigration, Jim Robinson FReepers who hate Romney because of his previous support for abortion and fag marriage, Tea Party types who feel thwarted by the GOP establishment, etc.
Combine that with the fact that Mitt Romney is one of the most banal, milquetoast, pussyfooting Republican nominees ever to run for president who is running his campaign on a brilliant platform of doing nothing substantial to help anyone except the GOP big money donor class and he also loses middle of the road swing voters.
Last time I checked the polls, Romney was at 0 percent with blacks, 30 percent with Hispanics, and 54 percent with White voters. He was underperforming John McCain with White voters after four years of Obama and Eric “My People” Holder!
The fact is, Mitt Romney is not going to be the next president unless he wins over 59 to 60 percent of White voters between late September and early November. He needs another 5 percent of the White vote from either non-voters or Obama voters.
Brett says there are only two options, Obama or Mitt Romney, but the polls and voter turnout will clearly show there is/was a third option: none of the above.
Millions of White people who are eligible voters who hate Obama will not vote for Mitt Romney. They won’t vote for him because they can’t find any compelling reason to do so. It doesn’t matter to them if Romney loses because they don’t expect to be any better or worse off if he wins.
Some people will be much better off if Romney wins in November. The short list includes the neocons who will find jobs in a Romney administration, the GOP establishment, professional Republican hacks in the Beltway, Bibi Netanyahu, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Wall Street, billionaires like Sheldon Adelson and Bob Perry, etc.
Most of the people who are not supporting Romney expect the effective result of a Romney victory would be more free trade agreements, a larger budget deficit, four more years of open borders, more warmongering in the Middle East, renewed pushes for “comprehensive immigration reform,” the preservation of all aspects of BRA including affirmative action, judges like John Roberts, and periodic explosions of violence from the festering Black Undertow.
We’re going to get that no matter who wins in November! So what does it matter if Obama wins? At least Obama puts a vacant smiling black face on it all instead of a plastic smiling CEO White face like Mitt Romney or a “compassionate conservative” face like W.
If Romney loses, House and Senate Republicans will still have a free hand to oppose Obama on immigration, whereas if Romney wins, they will be forced to go along with his “permanent solution” to our immigration system.
Tellingly, Mitt Romney refuses to run his campaign on this “permanent solution.” He won’t tell us the details of this “permanent solution.” Obviously because he knows very well we are not going to like the “permanent solution” and would hold it against him in November.
I would bet a thousand dollars on Auburn beating LSU tomorrow before on trusting Mitt Romney to do anything substantial to help out White America!
The GOP establishment is a bloodsucking parasite that exists for the sole purpose of sucking as much money and energy out White America as possible for its own institutional self preservation. We’ve been incapacitated by a political form of tick paralysis.
Not even one cheer for Mitt Romney and Conservatism Inc.!
