  •  That's what really cements my feeling... (5+ / 0-)

    That Romney would be a catastrophically terrible president -- his utter spinelessness and lack of moral resolve when it comes to standing up to extreme voices in his party. He has outright embraced the birthers -- Donald Trump, Rep. Steve King, and their ilk. He refused to comment when King, Rep. Bachmann, and other Republicans slandered Huma Abedin and Rep. Ellison. He refused to comment when Rep. West claimed 78 to 81 congressional Democrats are secret members of the Communist Party. He has refused to denounce this "jobs trutherism", or even outright say he believes the unemployment report is legitimate. He has slung the completely false "apology tour" accusation, which has literally no basis in reality. He all but accused the president of sympathizing with terrorists in his comments on the Libya consulate attack.

    This guy is either a radical extremist, or he's a craven, morally bankrupt coward who can't even stand up to fellow conservatives when they cross the line. He's not the leader of the Republican Party; he's the substitute teacher of the Republican Party.

    Keeper of the DKE glossary. Priceless: worth a lot; not for sale.
