We're never going to have a political system that tackles the very real issues that face this country (and globe) as long as that is the priority for Republicans. Yes, we can mitigate that by giving President Obama stronger majorities in Congress. But our politics will always be debased and the outcomes compromised when power is an end in itself.
In the Republican debate Saturday night, Mitt Romney stood with Senator McConnell when he criticized John Huntsman for serving as the Ambassador to China in the Obama administration.
I think we serve our country first by standing for people who believe in conservative principles, and doing everything in our power to promote an agenda that does not include President Obama’s agenda.
I do NOT support Huntsman for president. But I will support him in condemning Romney and suggesting that this kind of thinking is at the root of what is wrong with America right now.
