Mitt Romney has a better Saturday than he did Tuesday, winning narrowly in the Maine caucuses and topping a straw poll of conservative activists. Romney described himself as someone "who can uproot Washington's culture of taxing and spending and borrowing and endless bureaucracy."

    As much as I don't particularly care for some of his policies, I don't see anyone better...

    "who can uproot Washington's culture of taxing and spending and borrowing and endless bureaucracy."

     

    Some of us wonder if he will be a good enough fireman on that front, but at least he's not an arsonist of our financial security like Obama is.

    He is pretty clearly in an exclusive income strata--The Romney Class--well beyond that of any of the other candidates and "entitled" to a tax rate only slightly greater than those non-paying leeches all of the other privileged always complain about. (Given that he wants to lower the capital gains even more, that gap will come even closer to disappearing.) Good thing only the Democrats are engaging in class warfare, otherwise 99% of you would end up on food stamps.

     

    Having been both poor and upper middle class, I have to say that life is a lot easier when you don't have hold two jobs just to feed your kids.

    I prefer to focus on the financial issues here, but as a Paul supporter I feel very slighted by the reporting on Maine. The caucus in his strongest country was cancelled and he was in 2nd place by under 200 total votes.

     

    All the talk is "Romney wins" and "Paul disappoints," but how is a close 2nd place really a Paul disappointment? I expect a Iowa-style re-report with a Paul win if the other caucus is counted in.
