I hate Mitt Romney

This is completely pathetic. More follow-up on the auto-based battle in Michigan this past week between Romney and McCain (see my post below for more details). Do not vote for Mitt the following:

"Mitt Romney won Michigan's Republican primary on Tuesday, after whacking John McCain for supporting tougher fuel-economy regulations and promoting 'radical climate change legislation.' Romney portrayed himself as a defender of Michigan's floundering auto industry and said the automakers shouldn't be burdened with having to produce more fuel-efficient cars. McCain also got broadsided by an anti-environment front group, the American Environmental Coalition, whose members include many people with close links to the Romney campaign. Said an AEC co-chair, 'When it comes to climate change, John McCain and Al Gore are far too much alike for my comfort. John McCain has been sponsoring legislation for the past several years that would give Al Gore much of the regulatory control and power he sought when he and Bill Clinton tried to get America to sign on to the UN's Kyoto global warming treaty.'

Willard bought himself some votes by pandering to the auto industry and throwing the environment under the bus but these tactics will spell his doom. It was short-sighted of him and he will be eaten alive by either Clinton or Obama. He will either stick to these positions and get slammed in California/New York in a gen election or change his tune and get bashed for flip-flop #684. That is if he gets the nomination.

"Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" refers to his droid-like qualities all the time. He is definitely not viable in a general election and will go nowhere.
