George Will: Take Congress, not White House [March 2, 2012]

Columnist George Will says the 2012 presidential race looks like it might be a lost cause for Republicans and believes that the primary goal of conservatives should be to retain control of the House and win the Senate so Congress can restrain President Barack Obama while the GOP grooms its talent for 2016.

So even a Mass. liberal (who I am rooting for today) is not god enough for the RINOS. Unreal.

The date of the article is 03/02/12.

Will said that he thinks Romney will win by over 315.

This was posted March 2, 2012. Just a few days ago, George Will predicted Romney would win with more than 300+ electoral votes.

The title should say this is from March. For a second there, I thought that he changed from Romney 300+EVs to a lost cause, overnight.

The RINOs fear that we will be able to hold Romney and his Mittbots captive and bend them to our will.

Which is, of course, what I think is the right course for America!

Geo Will predicted on one of the Sunday talk shows that the Electoral College vote would be Romney: 321 Barry 217.

I cannot believe that he is switching his opinion that strongly in just 2 days.

The OP did point out the date of the article. In light of what Will says now, what he said back then is highly significant to his true mindset. (The libs will always hold Will up as a supposed paragon of conservatism though.)

“What is this?”

An eight month old article. To my knowledge, George Will has not retracted his more recent prediction of a Romney victory.

The Democrats feel they are entitled to power, the GOP establishment agrees.

Confidence and pessimism are self fulfilling. This article is a prime example of why this country is in such trouble.

Regardless of when Will wrote this, it’s still wrong. In a second term, Obama would just rule by decree, and dare Congress to stop him. What are they going to do - impeach the First Black President? Fat chance.

Bottom line, a re-elected President Obama will do precisely as he pleases and Congress will STFU and take it.

As we speak, we are witnessing the most critical election in our lifetimes. Some knucklehead comes along and decides that it's a good opportunity to "prove" to us that George Will is a RINO.

Up to your intellectual level, but only maybe. Oh, and shut up n00b.

Guys -

The moderator had to edit the post and add the actual date, the original post did not contain it. Obviously, if you post an article like this, you put the date, unless ....

This was I suspect dropped just to piss people off by this guy called “Bo’s stink **s.”

NO, leave it up. It shows ACTUAL CONSERVATIVES had to drag RINO George Will across the finish line.

He’s been in the beltway for far too long.

Not a RINO.......George Will is a Donkey in an Elephant suit.

I don't know why we even give this guy the time of day and I can't remember the last time he was accurate about anything Republican.

That's the problem with living with the natives (Democrats) at some point you start to talk and act just like them.......

“Is there a reason for putting up an 8 month old article?”

Yes. When I read this in March, it pizzed me off. I just wanted to remind everyone what a wishy washy RINO Will is. Also I stated in the original post that this was from March. Sorry to all you FReepers who didn’t read that, but that on you.

Wow. What a bunch of whiners. Take the post down on your own website.

This post shows that ACTUAL CONSERVATIVES had to drag the BELTWAY BOY George Will across the finish line. A Romney win proves Will is a finger-in-the-wind RINO. Probably read a Dick Morris column.
