Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Their Ideas Suck

Josh Marshall is right that Romney hit the trifecta of losing: weak convention, the Libya gaffe and the 47% speech.  But I think it's also worth pointing out that it's not just the dynamics of the race and Romney's own shortcomings, but the various odious positions that the GOP has staked out.  It's not just that Romney made the 47% speech, but that that speech is a pure distillate of GOP economic and fiscal philosophy.
