Regular readers will know of my love, mixed with fear, for strong, bossy blondes with attitude, hence my grovelling, besotted adoration of My Darling Ann (Coulter). And yet . . . and yet . . . and for God's sake don't tell her, I am beginning to 'hae me doots' - DM will doubtless correct my Scottish accent. She assured me - oh yes, she only writes those articles for me - that Mitt Romney was 'The Man' because, solid and boring though he was, he would not frighten either the horses or the independent voters, and they are the key to every election. Well, it's true, he hasn't frightened the independents, or anyone else come to that!
So now I have been forced to get in touch with my masculine side and I turn - natch! - to 'The Kraut' over at the National Review. He suggests there are two line of attack for Romney to take - frankly, I am still waiting for any line of attack from him, although I must confess that it is difficult to judge from 'over here'. Anyway, 'The Kraut' reckons you can confront Obama either on his record or his ideology. With courage above and beyond the call of duty I challenge 'The Kraut' over his 'either/or' approach. Why not both? There's still three months and a convention to go. The problem, I suggest meekly, is that Romney does not have an ideology. That is why I hope, but not with much confidence, that he picks Paul Ryan as his 'Veep'. Now that would put a shed-load of ideology into the campaign and give the Right something and someone to be enthused by, leaving Romney to continue his impersonation of a walking, talking, tailor's dummy!
Obama is the worst president since Woodrow Wilson. He's a liar and a charlatan pushing a political ideology which will lead inexorably to the economic, military and democratic death of the United States. His record in office is abysmal and Romney should be leading by at least 10 points - but he ain't!
"Shomething wrong, shurely!"
ADDITIONAL: Some very sound sense from John Podhoretz at Commentary.
And just to satisfy your curiosity:
Ann Coulter Charles Krauthammer
Well, which one would you choose?
