Politico is reporting that respected conservative columnist George Will has concluded that the White House is lost. He suggests that conservatives should concentrate on maintaining control of the House and winning the Senate. Politico obtained an advanced copy of Will’s Sunday column. The full Politico column can be found at www.politico.com.
Quoting Politico; Will writes: “There would come a point when…conservatives turn their energies to a goal much more attainable than…electing Romney or Santorum president. It is the goal of retaining control of the House and winning control of the Senate…Conservatives should have as their primary goal making sure Republicans wield all the gavels in Congress in2013.”
“If Republicans do, their committees will serve as fine-mesh filters, removing President Obama’s initiatives from the stream of legislation… (A) re-elected Obama--a lame duck at noon next Jan 20—would have a substantially reduced capacity to do harm.”
Talk about a buzz kill for Romney and Santorum.
