Mitt Romney is finished in politics. But is the Republican “Establishment?” Weer’d says it best.
I got upset in the Primaries. People may be tempted to compare Mitt Romney to Bob Dole, no the Bob Dole repeat was John McCain, last night Mitt Romney showed us what it would look like if the Republicans fielded John Forbes Kerry.
My fear is that they won’t get that message. The “Establishment” will look at this race and say “Oh, dear. We had a nice moderate candidate and we lost. Now we have to find another, more moderate, candidate.” And off they will go, anointing yet one more Democrat-Lite candidate.
There’s only one solution. That’s for each of us to get involved in our local Republican Party. Find like minded people and take over the local party apparatus. We can’t fight the Establishment so we have to become the establishment. As Miguel says (and Weer’d quotes)
We all watched as better candidates were pushed aside because it was Mitt’s turn. If we don’t fix the party now, we’ll just see it again next time.
