Posted on 10/24/2012 10:50:04 PM PDT by Beaten Valve
What kind of president would Mitt Romney be? And what should we expect from Barack Obama's second term? To answer these questions, I'll draw on the work of Yale political scientist Stephen Skowronek, who has argued that presidents' fortunes depend on how they establish their political legitimacy in the particular circumstances under which which they assume power.
In this essay, I'll discuss the prospects for a Romney presidency; in the next, I'll discuss the second term of an Obama presidency.

Please, Brer Balkin, don’t throw me in dat dere briar patch.
I love the smell of “You Republicans will be sorry” in the air. It’s the smell of Victory.
“The Atlantic” ... is that rag still in business? The 70’s called and they want their magazine back!
He may be able to get some stuff pushed through, but we'll have to unseat Dingy Harry as the top flea-bag in the Senate. On the flip side, just stopping all the grenades that Zero keeps throwing will be an improvement all in itself.
Balkin = Yale professor.
Need I say more?
Not that anyone gives crap but my vote for Mitt Milquetoast will be the last for me as a Republican. I plan on switching to Independent after this election. I cannot be in a party that has shifted to the left of where the Deomcratic Party was just 30 years ago. JFK was to the right of Mitt mAsshole. It’s a party that has very little respect for me and my values and is ashamed of me. I am tired of being abused and taken for granted. AMF Republican Party.
You are so harsh. I thought the font was acceptable.
FOUR MORE YEARS OF obama LEADS TO DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA... FOUR YEARS OR ROMNEY MEANS AN OCCASIONAL HEARTBURN ATTACK. FU LEFTARDS!
They do not get the supply side economic dynamic... BECAUSE IT WORKS AND NOTHING THE LEFT BELIEVES IN DOES!!! INCLUDING THEIR OWN VOTERS!
“Romney has a solid record”
Tell me that Romney is the only alternative to Obama but please don’t try to portray Romney’s record as anything but a liberal.
Go to F.R.s main page and click on “RomneyTruthFile”.
Facts are facts.
Don’t even need to read the article. It comes from the Atlantic magazine. The Atlantic....full of old wrecks, fish sh-t and crabs.
Before the "social safety net" (government dependency) there was charity, freely given. Since RATs don't want to give of their own store, they prefer the government to take from others.
Thank you for the suggestion on the TruthFile. He actually wasn’t my first choice either as you say he is the only alternative to Obama at the moment. And he has started to grow on me especially after he picked Ryan for his running mate and seeing him in action against Obama. And at least he is better than McCain who I have always had a problem with.
