Ace of Ace of Spades HQ, noting something that I wholeheartedly agree with:
I don’t know what kind of President [Mitt Romney would] make (or that any of them would make).
But there is something to be said just for driving President The Constitution Acted Stupidly out of office, and giving the People’s House back to the people. The real people, not Obama’s coalitions of red diaper babies, crytposocialists, black-bandannaed anarchists, academic parasites, union goons, and welfare state clients.
There is a lot to be said about it, in fact. I had no patience for teach-the-GOP-a-lesson even back in 2006 or 2008: and now that I’ve seen what the Democrats will do when they control the legislature and executive branches of government, I have even less. It’s a great theoretical argument, but as a practical matter it puts the government in the hands of people who think that it’s constitutional to make you buy health insurance. So until it doesn’t…
PS: Third parties also put the government in the hands of people who think that it’s constitutional to make you buy health insurance.
PPS: Yes, well, if it was an easy problem to solve then we would have fixed it by now, actually.
