Note from Dan: The comment below is a slightly cleaned-up version of something dave posted on another thread. Didn’t want it to get buried there. IMHO he’s bending over backwards with kindness for these guys. And dave, you forgot Ron Paul!
“The quality and trustworthiness of the three top dogs on the GOP presidential primary comedy tour have never been better demonstrated than by the events of the past few days.
First, Romney’s chief campaign spokesperson says what we have all observed in candidate Romney is true. He will say whatever it takes to try to win the nomination whether he believes it or not. In the general election we will “hit the reset button.” Everything will change It’s sort of like an Etch-a-Sketch game.
Then Rick Santorum implies that if Romney is the GOP candidate we’d be just as well off sticking with what we have. He stands on the steps of the Supreme Court and tells the world Romney can’t win because of his responsibility for “Obamneycare” And four hours later he tells a group of supporters that he would be open to running for Vice President on the Romney ticket.
And finally, Newt Gingrich, who has amply illustrated throughout this campaign that he is in it for all the money he can and will eventually make, emphasizes that fact once again by telling his supporters he’d be delighted to pose for individual pictures with them. All they have to do is bring their checkbook and write a check fo $50.
These are the best the GOP has to offer? Sadly, that appears to be true.”
