Romney's numbers have been taking hits for many reasons already observed by writers with more skill than I have. Conservatives have been saying that they are supporting Chris Christie's (yes, the guy who cut taxes to the Atlantic City casinos and then complained that the New Jersey Transit union was the cause of the state's budget crsis) campaign in 2016 already.
Yesterday, W. Mitt Romney (Yes, another Republican with a W initial) was faced with a decision. He was being hit with the idea that his economic plan would benefit the rich at the expense of the poor and middle class. He needed someone to beat back that negative image, so he chose a man whose economic plan benefits the rich at the expense of the poor, middle class, AND seniors.
I am starting to think that Romney and his Elephantine friends know the cause is doomed and he is trying to be as toxic as possible so the next one looks moderate by comparison.
Start making the bumper stickers now: "Christie 2016: Not as extreme as McCain or Romney"
