Why Mitt Romney Will Never Be President

If Mitt Romney wins the Republican Primary to run against Barack Obama in 2012 Obama will be re-elected and it will not even be remotely close. Obama will be re-elected in a lame duck term with what he will consider a mandate, and there will be no stopping him from doing whatever he chooses to go forward. If you think the Republicans will win the Senate there may be a 50-50 chance, but it is no better than that, and Obama has proven that he doesn’t need the Congress to do anything he wants anyway.

Our national debt will be 120% of GDP and growing at an unsustainable rate every year with almost half the budget borrowed money. Economic growth will not continue indefinitely. The financial crisis is escalating and it threatens to engulf everything that we hold dear. The consequences are building, and are unavoidable without immediate and substantial change. We have a blind spot with respect to our own future. We deal with problems when they confront us. The result could be as drastic as the supply chain being radically affected, or stopped. Millions could die waiting for a solution that might take quite some time to materialize. People and politicians won’t openly recognize the danger until they are confronted by the crisis.
