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.

George Will and Billy Kristol=RINOs for Barack
So even a Mass. liberal (who I am rooting for today) is not god enough for the RINOS. Unreal.
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.
Will stated that he thought Romney was going to win.
Which is, of course, what I think is the right course for America!
Yes, this is misleading. Probably better to delete the thread than explain it away.
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.)
Please — we don’t need this kind of post today. FR has all it can handle with CURRENT news.
WHY POST this from March 2012????
Jeesh as if this place needs more useless threads to slow it down. Sorry.
oR PUT A ATE oNDIT
“What is this?”
An eight month old article. To my knowledge, George Will has not retracted his more recent prediction of a Romney victory.
What - are you for real? Posting an opinion peace from 8 months ago?
I’m looking for the punch line here...
Agreed. Someone is lying here.
Stop posting old news. Lame.
Words of wisdom for a RINO back in March.
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.
The title was edited after the fact.
(ummm...the other piece...)
This is BS and should not have been posted today.
please note the date...i believe George Will predicted Romney getting 312 EV on Sunday...
The intent was to mislead. So shut up.
take this crap down! i saw just the title briefly and for a moment—felt AWFUL! Downcast!
Back to trolling again, I see.
I was able to read the date and the OP’s comments. Why not you?
This is a misleading thread due to date. Delete.
Is there a reason for putting up an 8 month old article?
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.
A BS post, as usual from slow people.
Up to your intellectual level, but only maybe. Oh, and shut up n00b.
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.
Bad idea to post this today. Stupid even. Article is from MARCH and Will has changed his view dramatically.
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.
OK, so why add to the bandwidth thereof?
Great post BO.
Take Congress and the White House
Why bother to say ‘stuff’ like this?
Will didn’t know we were trying to take the White House, Senate, and House?
George..., turn in your decoder ring. You’re done.
As I see it, it’s inviting the trolls. Like ones that seek out vanity posts and such . . .
“Bad idea to post this today. Stupid even. Article is from MARCH and Will has changed his view dramatically.”
Stupid? Well, you’re a meanie.
How is a Congress going to restrain a president to whom it has already granted the power of Fiat?
