Is Harry Reid playing into the hands of some diabolical conspiracy theory plot to use the Romney tax issue as an excuse for delivering the Republican Party's Presidential Nomination to someone else?   Isn't the Republican bullpen is empty?   Isn't it true that there is nobody left on the bench?   Is the Romney nomination a clever ruse?   Is it in fact just a play fake?

Should the Democrats have played possum on the tax forms issue and waited until after Romney got the nomination before making them the subject of a fuss?

If the perception of Mitt Romney as a spoiled brat rich kid is accurate, then it seems quite likely that he will not suddenly develop a propensity for accepting defeat graciously.   If he is given a chance to step down before the Republican Convention will the guy who has always been able to buy the toys he wants, prefer, instead, to do a "White Heat" finale that will provide Americans with a memorable TV "wipeout" moment?  

That might be what Harry Reid wants, but what will happen if Romney is given a metaphorical "Rommel Option" ultimatum and does step down before the Convention?   Then what?   Is President Obama's strategy flexible or is it designed to function with only Romney as the "presumptive" opponent?   Could an alternative Republican nominee throw Obama's game plan into complete disarray?   As bullfight fans would be quick to point out; the moment of truth is rapidly approaching.

Alfred M. Landon said:   "A government is free in proportion to the rights it guarantees to the minority."

Now the disk jockey will play "Happy days are here again," "When you're smiling," and "He's a rebel."   We have to go do a Google search for ChipPac.   Have an "aletoricism" type week.

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
