The witless comments of George Will

George Will has some very odd statements about Mitt Romney:

The read as follows:

It’s very hard to produce unanimity in America politics particularly in fractious republicans but Mitt Romney did so this week. There’s no one expressing the desire, the pent up desire, for another Romney campaign. Is the field weak? He doesn’t have that excuse. This is the strongest most diverse republican field since 1856. Is the party weak? They control 31 governors, seven of the ten largest states have republican governors, they control both legislative chambers and the governorship in 23 states with  251 electoral votes. The republican party is geared up for a very strong showing in 2016 and they do not need to look backwards.

Let’s look at this in pieces.

“It’s very hard to produce unanimity in America politics particularly in fractious republicans but Mitt Romney did so this week.” He acts every Republican was up in arms over this. They were not. Romney is ahead of all the national polls, the Iowa polls, and the New Hampshire polls. The only people that are upset are the predominately populist and Progressives for Jesus hack pundits. The actual base of the party seems to like Mitt.

“There’s no one expressing the desire, the pent up desire, for another Romney campaign.” Numbers and reality to the contrary.

2016 GOP field

Go on. Take an honest look at this bunch. And try not to laugh when saying this is a strong field of options.Ryan’s out.  Walker can’t win the national vote.  The rest beside Romney…well…

“Is the field weak? He doesn’t have that excuse.” Really? Please tell me who the strong candidates are. The brainless demagogue of Ted Cruz. The crazy and immoral libertarianism of Rand Paul. The latest bland and spineless Bush, a family of idiots and wimps. Perhaps you mean the liberal Rick Perry who will with one hand force unproven vaccines on women and with the other use in quite the liberal fashion tax money to give bribes to businesses to come to his state. Perhaps Chris Christie who intentionally sabotaged Mitt at the last moment in 2012 giving Obama lots of good press so that he could run in 2016 showing he places his own fat ego above the good of the nation.   Oh hey, maybe he means Mike Huckabee who even before Michelle Obama thought it was the place of government to tell us what to eat. No I’m sure it’s Ben Carson a man who has never had an ounce of executive experience in his entire life. Really George, I hesitate to say that were it not for the fact that we almost always have weak fields in the Republican party, this is one of the weakest.

“This is the strongest most diverse republican field since 1856.” George, loosen the bow tie. I say this for two reasons. One, in almost all cases, bow ties are not cool—you are not one of the exceptions. Second because it is clearly choking off oxygen to your brain.

“Is the party weak? They control 31 governors, seven of the ten largest states have republican governors, they control both legislative chambers and the governorship in 23 states with  251 electoral votes.” What does this have to do with the price of tea in China? So the Republicans are doing well, great, sounds like the perfect time to put up the most experienced and qualified person for the job since Calvin Coolidge.

But then again this is all coming from a man who agreed with all the other hack pundits in their lie that Romney was not a conservative in the first place. I think FOXNews may be over paying for this level of poor commentary.

“The republican party is geared up for a very strong showing in 2016 and they do not need to look backwards.” Ah the argument of 1980 on why we shouldn’t endorse Reagan…again. It was stupid then and it’s stupid now. We should go with the most qualified candidate. In this case it is pretty obvious who that is. Will seems to be making an argument that bears no semblance of reason or sanity.
