Disagree strongly about Rand

I guess we're going to have to agree to disagree.

But I do agree with this:
"You all know how it would have gone otherwise: After a couple of years of Romney misrule, the media will decide that Romney was the candidate of "free markets." Then, mired in a depression, our wise overlords will declare that "we tried that free market thing, and look what happened.""

That is exactly what I was worried about. If Romney had won it would have been a Pyrrhic victory. I want it to be crystal clear to all and sundry that the free market is not what is causing all these problems, and Romney would have screwed up that goal completely. You know what is funny--the media would have blamed Romney and the "free market" even before he would have been sworn into office anyway, you know it's true!

I am unhappy with Obama being in a position to appoint up to 3 or 4 Supreme Court justices, but I've become completely jaded on Romney's/GOPs ability to do any better.
