JUST OUT…. The National Review becomes the sole adult in the chaotic and destructive GOP Room by offering much-needed advice to Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney:
NATIONAL REVIEW TO NEWT: GET OUT, BACK RICK!
“… it would be a grave mistake for the party to make someone with such poor judgment and persistent unpopularity its presidential nominee…. On his own arguments the proper course for him now is to endorse Santorum and exit.”
TO MITT: GET REAL!: “… make the most of it: Tell conservatives what they will get out of a Romney presidency. Entitlements brought under budgetary control. A more market-oriented health-care system. Judges who know their place in the constitutional architecture. Fannie and Freddie extinguished. The defense budget protected. Tax reform, and tax relief for families. … So far Romney has been running mostly on his biography: Republicans are supposed to vote for him because he is a family man and shrewd businessman. And Republicans, even the many who are well disposed to him, have been saying as loud as they can: It isn’t enough.”
