Preparing the Romney purge already?

Preparing the Romney purge already?

Alex Parene at Salon notes that prominent Republicans are signaling that Romneybot is underperforming specs:

Are prominent conservatives panicking about Mitt Romney’s campaign? It sorta looks that way, today. The Wall Street Journal editorial board — the men who ensure that even educated, newspaper-reading rich conservatives are successfully misinformed on all the major issues of the day — has a big “Mitt Romney is blowing it” editorial today (published online late Wednesday) that seems designed to stir up as much trouble as possible for the candidate.

The first line is hilarious and patently untrue: “If Mitt Romney loses his run for the White House, a turning point will have been his decision Monday to absolve President Obama of raising taxes on the middle class.”

Oh, indeed it will. After all, conservatism can never fail, it can only be failed.

We really needed for them to nominate a true believer this time --- I'm afraid the fact that a loss for Romney the Massachusetts corporation in a suit will do little to calm the far right flame. In their minds he will prove, once again, that the country really wanted a far right extremist. If they had nominated one of their stars

The most interesting thing about this is the fact that Democrats have bought into the same mythology. Even if they don't have to, the Party supports the most conservative Democratic candidate available, obviously laboring under the similar belief that the nation is begging for more right wing politics.

And people wonder why politics are so conservative these days.
