    The current national debt as of 1/11/2012 is $15.2 trillion. What do you think the debt will be after fours years of Mitt Romney?

    From a fiscal standpoint, I see no difference between Romney and the current resident of the White House.

    To the Polipundit gallery:

    Today I have officially switched my support to Ron Paul. I will send him a campaign contribution.

    I hope I do not jinx him.

    The fight would have continued unless Romney had won by more than 50% in NH and that was never in the cards–as The Old York Times knew damn well when it wrote that editorial. Had Romney managed to get just about 40%, I think it would have further deflated the losers (except Paul, of course) and reduced the vigor of their effort in SC. Assuming Romney gets wins, even by small margins, in SC and FL, I don’t see the nomination contest going on much further. If Gingrich et al. continue after Romney SC and FL wins, we’ll have no choice but to institutionalize them. Paul is, of course, in his own alternate reality.

    Ron Paul will crush Obama.
