Anybody But Romney

November 17th, 2011

By Dan Miller

According to an article linked at Business Insider and originally posted here,

In a surprise move today, the seven major Republican candidates for president (who are not named “Mitt Romney”) decided to merge their campaigns, and run as a single corporate “person” they are now calling “Anybody But Romney, Incorporated.”

Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum held a joint press conference to announce the formation of “ABR, Inc.” This move is unprecedented in the history of presidential campaigns, but all seven candidates spoke of it as the natural reaction by Republicans to avoid nominating Mitt Romney, who is just not trusted by roughly three-fourths of the Republican electorate. By joining forces, the field of non-Romney candidates said, they can assure Republican voters that Romney will not be their party’s standard-bearer next year.

A glance at the site where the article originated and at one of the author’s comments there suggests that it is an attempt at satire. Still, it might be a good idea.

    Maybe,but All together they may be less trust-worthy than Romney. They seem to be a whole pile of losers rolled into one lump,including Romney. Obama gonna win,if you Reps. keep on hanging onto the skirt tails of dead weight. I don’t think too many of us want to see that happen,but these guys/gal are going to make most of us,just stay home,on election day,it doesn’t seem to matter,all appear to be bad choices.

    Trustworthy to do what? To continue the slide down the slippery slope on which President Obama has set us? I greatly favored Herman Cain, a Washington outsider with a pleasing and happy sort of Not Obama charisma who could have done much to reverse our course.

    Now I fear that he has become an also ran. He could and should have handled the problem far better than he did. The harassment accusations have become a sort of cancer. Denial doesn’t help in fighting cancer and neither do half-measures. Complaints that the situation is unfair (it is) or due to malice (it probably is) are not useful either.

    There were effective steps that Mr. Cain and his campaign could have taken, before it became too late. Persuading only his base of committed supporters that he had done no wrong would not have been sufficient. He also had to convert those who had come to view him with suspicion or anger, to prevent others from doing either and to establish himself as capable of dealing reliably and effectively with major problems as President. He failed.

    Trustworthy,as in, morals. Then,why such a stink over Clinton,a sting,obviously,set up by Republicans,even though he did it? Cain,obviously,is a skirt chaser,who does not belong in the White house,because,1:He is a skirt chaser,maybe the sting,brought on by probing ,democrats or his competitors,Republicans,but there to find,no less.2:He is not quallified to be president,for the same reasons,you guys protested,so loudly,about Obama,and still do,No experience.
