Liking Romney When He Fights

, ,

C.J. Box (must be the mystery writer), at Ricochet, is getting a much more positive view of Mitt Romney.

I thought it would be a personal replay of 2008, when I’d declared, “I’d rather open a vein than vote for McCain” and then did so anyway.

Then this, from Buzzfeed:

    “I thought we were going to see John McCain all over again,” said Brad Thor, a bestselling novelist and popular figure on the right who supported Santorum. “But you know what? That fire I’ve felt for previous candidates, I’m starting to feel it. And that surprise presser at Solyndra was like pouring accelerant on the fire.”

    Thor said when he heard about the Solyndra stunt, he cheered aloud: “Way to go Mitt!”

    “My God, this is right out of Breitbart’s playbook. I love it!” he said. “I swear to God, if he roller skates into the DNC convention, or hijacks an Obama press conference–if he does either one of those I’m going to give my kid’s college money to his Super PAC.”

Yes! I felt the same way.

Who among you would have thought boring, stodgy, RINO-ey old Mitt was capable of the kind of blistering counter-punches he’s been landing of late? Who would have thought his campaign would devil David Axelrod and leave him sputtering and at the same time launch a press conference in front of the empty Solyndra headquarters?

I’m still not 100% convinced, but for the first time I’m excited. And last night my wife and I sent the Romney for President Campaign a big check.

Do we have our fighter after all?

2 Feedbacks on "Liking Romney When He Fights"




Yesterday the President contrasted Romney to McCain: “But John McCain believed in climate change. John believed in campaign finance reform. He believed in immigration reform. I mean, there were some areas where you saw some overlap.”
Translation: Romney is starting to scare me.
