Day 1271 – The Douglas Brackman Syndrome

Anybody but Obama is a very unifying rallying cry for 2012. It sets a low bar for an acceptable Republican challenger. Mitt Romney certainly is anybody. this slogan is also slow-acting poison which will destroy much-needed enthusiasm in the general election. Mitt Romney is not perfect, but he’s pretty good. Barack Obama is terrible all day long.

Mitt Romney’s strength is economic. He can create the fiscal climate to create jobs. Business will respect him in the White House and not hold the entirely reasonable fears they have now about Obama’s plans for regulations and taxes. He will do what he can to end Obamacare before it starts, because Obamacare isn’t Romneycare. Obamacare is a mandate system like the Massachusetts model, but with the unlimited power of deficit spending to unfairly compete with insurance companies using state exchanges.

I look at it this way. In the 90s, there was a show on NBC called “L.A. Law.” One character, Douglas Brackman, wasn’t particularly liked by some of the partners. He was a legacy from when his father started the firm, he was initially stuffy and patrician and was obsessed with the books. At one point during the series, Brackman was made senior partner. He turned out to be a model of efficiency and made the firm more financially viable and the partners more successful. Mitt Romney may be the boring white guy in the election, but he is about as presidential as it gets.

I will be voting for Mitt Romney as much as against Barack Obama.
