Mark Thoma Watches Steven Williamson Once Again Fail to Mark His Beliefs to Market

And We Have David Frum's Romney Endorsement!

Why? Because Romney will implement ObamaCare!

Why I'll Vote for Romney: I don't want to see Obamacare repealed. I don't believe it will be, not even if the Republicans retake the Senate, which I don't expect either. Precisely since the universal healthcare law will remain in place, I want to see it implemented by people who see cost control as the first priority…

Because Romney will enact a carbon tax!

The way to meet the climate change challenge is by taxing carbon emissions, not by government acting as venture capitalist to the green-energy industry….

Because Romney does not believe a word he says!

I also reject the Jonathan Chait theory that Romney personally shares the beliefs of the selfish and stupid elements of the coalition. Massachusetts Mitt - the Mitt who hurled himself into the battle for universal health coverage within his state - also came from someplace real…

Because Romney is a lot smarter than Goldwater, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush, Dole, Bush, and McCain!

Romney has demonstrated an ability to absorb and process information we've seen in no Republican candidate for president since Dwight Eisenhower…

Because only Romney can control the Congressional Republican Party!

[W]we won't reform the congressional GOP by re-electing President Obama… an Obama re-election will not only aggravate the extremism of the congressional GOP, but also empower them…. A Romney election will at least discourage the congressional GOP from deliberately pushing the US into recession in 2013. Added bonus: a Romney presidency likely means that the congressional GOP will lose seats in 2014, as they deserve….
