Boy, That's Gracious of Her: Nancy Pelosi Joins in leftist 20 percenter "Warnings" to gop-ers that They Need to Nominate Someone Besides Romney...
As recently predicted in this space, get ready for a steady stream of democrat party people purporting -- out of the goodness of their sweet little hearts -- to provide right-wingers with some free "advice" about whom the gop-ers should nominate to take on the individual we currently have as president this fall.
The latest leftist 20 percenter to try to help out the republic partisans is none other than former Creature of the House Nancy Pelosi this week. Following the cue provided over the past few weeks by Obama political hatchet job David Axelrod and the White House itself, Pelosi said Tuesday that Romney isn't the gop-ers' "first string" candidate, is "not going to be the president," and lacks support from devout right-wingers because "they don't think he can win" (link at bottom).
Again, the translation: Please nominate some goof other than Romney, gop-ers, because he stands the best chance of beating Obama in November from among the current gop-er field. Not to mention, the lukewarm right-winger support for Romney has little to do with their assessment of his chances of winning, and everything to do with the fact that far right-wingers (who dominate the republic partisan party) don't believe that Romney is "conservative enough."
Put another way, the right-wingers wish they had a better candidate to the right of Romney for whom they could vote in the primaries. But the field is weak, and no such person has gained much traction against Romney.
Regardless, it's largely now a moot point, because Romney has the nomination largely sewed up at this point -- much to the chagrin of your Axelrods and Pelosis of the world. But at least they gave it the ol' college try, and I can't blame them: I'd rather run against a Gingrich, Santorum or Ron Paul too!
