QUESTION: Is the reason the GOP Cocktail Party establishment won't push Obamacare as an election issue because they want to protect Mittens Romney's 2012 candidacy?
Have you noticed something incredibly bizarre?
Polls show Obamacare is so unpopular, especially with Independents, that when people hear a member of Congress supported what Democrats have done to healthcare those voters literally run screaming from the thought of re-electing that person.
Republicans should be hammering Obamacare left and right, but they’re not. Why? “What are those star destroyers waiting for?”, as Billy Dee Williams would say.
We think this is all about Mittens Romney, and the push the Cocktail Party establishment is making to secure the 2012 nomination for him, “because it’s his turn, and he’s wanted to be president since the 1970s”.
If Romney is the GOP nominee, Romneycare in Massachusetts becomes a major issue, because it was the disaster that presaged Obamacare.
If Republicans run against Obamacare in 2010, then they can’t push Romney as a nominee in 2012, because voters will not accept Romney as a viable candidate once they see he was behind a similar program in Massachusetts.
Though, truthfully, as we’ve been telling you since November 2008, voters are not going to accept Romney as a viable alternative to Obama period. He is not going to be elected president…but we all must work hard to make sure the GOP Cocktail Party establishment doesn’t somehow succeed in making Romney the nominee.
The Cocktail Party cannot be underestimated, folks.
They want Romney to be the nominee because these guys have already bet everything on him. They need him to be the candidate because they are counting on jobs with his campaign…and they need those jobs to advance their careers, and make a lot of money as post-campaign consultants and lobbyists. These guys are HUNGRY. In this job market, they are not about to let secure, guaranteed, high-paying jobs with Romney 2012 slip out of their grasps…no matter how obvious it is that Romney would lose the general election (which he will).
That means looking ahead to 2012 and killing a push against Obamacare, since that would hurt Romney.
It also means that in 2011, after Republicans take back the House, and maybe the Senate, these Cocktail Party establishment Romney guys will do everything they can to prevent a repeal of Obamacare…since they do not want this to be an issue debated in the news and revving Americans up…since that hurts Romney’s nomination chances.
Are we the only ones seeing this?
We don’t know how to stop the Romney Guys yet, but we see the threat they pose, and what they are up to.
What think you on all this?
