"The Obama spending bill would stimulate the government, not the economy," writes Mitt Romney in an enlightening must-read "Special to CNN" commentary that breaks through the murkiness of Obama & Company's wobbly, defensive warnings of gloom and doom predicting the end of the world as we know it if Republicans don't get behind the Democrats' "recovery" plan. We loved Jules Crittenden's take-off of the Con Man in Chief's "sense of urgency about the recovery plan before Congress," quoting from an Obama Wa Po op ed:
Ha ha, just kidding. He didn’t really say that last bit. I made that up. Sounds good, though.
Despite our profound admiration and respect for our former Taxachusetts Gov, we weren't a huge Romney fan during the primaries — long-shot candidate Fred Thompson was our man back then — and had to bite the bullet to get behind John McCain when he became our party's candidate, but Romney and McCain are lookin' pretty good about now.
Even court jester and VP Joe Biden ain't lookin' so bad these days, having unwittingly told it like it is — sorta — when he addressed House Democrats at their posh retreat at Kingsmill Resort & Spa in Williamsburg, VA to discuss future strategery, "If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there's still a 30 percent chance we'll get it wrong." We might quibble with the percent, but right on, Mr. Vice President!
