On the other hand, either Romney or the mainstream Republican Party is keeping former President Bush at bay, what a shame!
They did not even want to see President Bush Jr., or senior in the convention, of course President Bush pre-empted them by saying he can’t make it, even before a possible ask.
Romney has a whole lot of Bush men working with him, including Rove. The Democrats will hit him hard as the time gets closer, “Governor Romney, were you embarrassed about your former Republican President?” Did you realize that the men and women surrounding you are the same group of embarassers?
Most moderate Republicans were banking on Romney’s moderation, including me, but Romney slipped, he assumed the only way to get elected was to turn to the right, who did have a good record of turning around in 2010, gaining a majority in the house.
What Romney failed to see was, as he has failed to see so many other things, that the Republicans dumped radicals like Santorum, Cain, Gingrich, Bachman and their likes, none of them fit in the common good criteria. If Romney was any smart, he would not follow the path of those who were rejected. He can still dump them, but that would be too much flip flop. The man does not have the balls to stand his own ground, or his own principles.
