William Kristol, "We are so screwed".


No he didn't use those words but Mr. Kristol isn't getting any Matthews like "thrill going up (his) leg" in today's article titled, ironically "Feeling Blue".



http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/feelin-blue_634301.html

Watching Mitt Romney's victory speech in Illinois didn't reassure me about his chances against President Obama. (Watch it yourself to see if I'm being unfair.) Romney's remarks consisted basically of the claim that the business of America is business, that he's a businessman who understands business, and that we need "economic freedom" not for the sake of freedom but to allow business to fuel the economy. It's true that Romney will have plenty of time to improve for the general election, if, as seems likely (but still not inevitable!), he wins the nomination




About that "time to improve" thingy Bill, he's had 5 years to improve. Might say that Romney is learning curve impaired.

1. Uh oh. Now I'm worried

seeing that Bill Kristol is almost inevitably wrong about everything that compels him to spew from his piehole.

I saw your sigline and thought it so perfect that I copied it. Hope that's alright - with Mr. Scorpio as well.

20. William Krystal Meth is going to get his ass kicked!

Along with plenty of Republicans come November, and it will be glorious to see the meltdown on Faux News!

9. Romney just needs to do more sabre rattling against percieved enemies of a mideast ally

that would help a lot with gaining support of the Trotskyite branch of the republican party aka: the NeoCons, aka: Bush the first's "crazies" in the basement.

I suggest Romney wait until after he is annointed with the candidacy, and then suggest serious consideration of John Bolten as Sec Def, Kristol would immediately whistle up support for him.

And knowing that is more prescient than not, I am uncertain whether I should laugh at the thought or cry.

2. That's actually worrisome

 


Considering that Kristol has an outstanding record of being wrong pretty damn near all of the time - he was the prime mover for the Palin pick - if he sees trouble ahead, then I'd be worried that he's wrong again.

18. otoh, even a broken watch is right twice a day

or is he just wrong?

Either way, Krystal fails.

10. Bill Kristol never says things like this unscripted.

This is the precursor to a brokered convention. He just dropped a big hint.

14. True, but IMO, he just want's Romney to project more interest in militant internationalism

The money spent on militant interventionism is beyond common imagination.

Kristol feeds off the money thrown at militant hysteria about the middle east and so he wants a parallel hysterical commitment from the leader among candidates for GOP nominee.

Unfortunately, Romney is nothing but a moderate.

His religion is more centered on this place in Missouri--Adam ondi Amhan--than on Jerusalem

11. He's still talking "trickle-down" -moran

"we need "economic freedom" not for the sake of freedom but to allow business to fuel the economy"

He's still in denial about the fact that the more money we give these people the more bonuses they give to themselves.

I've seen 35 years of pissing on the people and "you're lucky you still have a job"

I had a manager say, "and the managers will be next to go"
like they were proud to say that we were all in the same boat
getting screwed.

If you want to fuel the economy, give money to the middle class - it's a proven fact! At least we'll spend it on food and clothing

12. R-Money has been running for office for 20 years! If he can't get it right by now

 

then maybe Bill is right.

However, the Republicans are now playing the "low expectations" game in the hope that it'll depress Democratic Party votes.

17. Watching the President I am guessing that William Kristol is still not reassured about Romney's

chances.

21. But Kristol's probably feeling encouraged since the economy started to slow down.
