And in a major upset, we don't get it. I know, I'm shocked as well.
But be sure to tell all the conservatives you know that the Times views ole Mitt as the best choice. They'll love that.Still, Mr. Romney was the best choice of the field, an experienced politician and businessman who is capable of doing more than simply representing moneyed interests and social conservatives. He is the best bet to challenge President Obama.
The only other remaining candidates are terrible choices. Newt Gingrich, who was drummed out of the House speaker’s job, is a right-wing zealot who wants to give minority children jobs as school janitors to show there is an alternative to being a pimp or a drug dealer. Ron Paul, a presidential never-was since the 1980s, offers the usual libertarian litany of agencies he would close, and some disturbing racial views.
