Texas Newspaper "Romney Needs To Step Aside & Let Palin Take Over"
The Lubbock Texas Avalanche-Journal has an impassioned opinion piece up today titled "Romney Must quit supporting Obama". The article reflects, in the writers vociferous way (some of whose comments I disagree with) the disquiet in some parts of the GOP's camp at what is seen as, at least, a lacklustre campaign by Romney and for others actually a supportive campaign by him. The Wall Street Journal is quoted as another critic of Romney.
This of course stems in some major part with Romney's difficulty over the Obamacare situation-Romney being credited by Obama as being the conceptual originator of President Obama's own health care act.
The GOP, if it loses because of conservative abstention in November will have made a rod for its own back-there will be no use in blaming the majority of Republicans who voted for the other prospective candidates.
The GOP establishment wanted Romney, Romneycare and all and they now have him.
That writers such as the one in Lubbock are giving vent to their frustration at Romney' apparent me to-ism is hardly surprising. That there is a call for Palin to take over the reins-a proven fighter unblemished with Romney's Romneycare and flip-flopper reputation also not surprising, rather is it frustrating and saddening that the one person who called out Obama correctly for what he is in 2008 was pushed out of the running.
