Romney as Outsider

CREDIT:

I feel like Mitt Romney’s outsider, anti-Washington message on display right now in his speech is a pretty good message. And as I’ve said before, I think he’d be a better president than John McCain (see also Poulos’ endorsement). There is an opening here for someone to point out that McCain is a kind of empty suit — a heroic biography followed by an extended legislative career that’s been long on Sunday morning show appearances and short on worthwhile accomplishments.
