Don’t for a moment underestimate Mitt Romney’s staying power.
(Page 2 of 2)
Polls and pundits say that it can’t be done; it’s slipping away; he has no chance. That does not fit with the Romney narrative. Not the Romney narrative that others have created, the one that he created. The undersold story of a man who does not quit. If past is prologue, Mitt Romney’s past leads to a predictable ending where, if victory was elusive, it was only temporarily so.
Certainly, no one in his path — whether now or in the past — can deny his tenacity. Ask the former contenders for the GOP nomination. Ask competitors of Bain Capital during his guidance as CEO. Ask the managers and owners of countless enterprises built, restored, and saved under that same guidance. Ask those responsible for the initial failures of the Salt Lake Olympic Games — the failures that he turned around. Ask the losing Massachusetts Democrat who sought the governorship against him — and failed. Ask his current opponent whether he wonders if Mitt Romney has figured out how to fail. Polls, press, and predictions suggest he will. His closest advisor (Ann) and history say he won’t.
I think history has the edge.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
