Tweedlemitt and Tweedlenewt

This next term is critical for America, not just because (if the IMF is correct) it may mark the end of America’s long run as the world’s leading economy but because, if ObamaCare is not repealed in the next four years, it will never be repealed. As I’ve said for years, government health care fundamentally (as Newt would say) redefines the relationship between the citizen and the state into one closer to junkie and pusher. Once the ObamaCare goodies kick in, getting back across the Rubicon will be a tough job. Nothing in Mitt’s past suggests he’s got either the stomach for that fight or the savvy to win it – and that’s before you consider his basic instincts on the matter…

It’s a tragedy that the Republican nomination has dwindled down to a choice not worth making. Yet not a single real vote has yet been cast. Iowa and New Hampshire will do us all a favor if they look beyond the frontrunners and keep genuinely conservative candidates in the game.
