Surrogate Romney Gets it Right

A few days ago, I mentioned that former Taxachusetts Governor Mitt Romney had effectively endorsed Dick Cheney for President. Apparently, despite making that endorsement, Romney has decided to remain in the race, acting as a surrogate candidate who can speak for Cheney while he waits for the perfect opening to enter the race.

And Romney is doing a respectable job in his new role:

While he refused all requests for pardons as governor, Romney has said that could change if he's elected president.

Asked in last week's debate if he would consider pardoning Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, who was convicted of lying and obstructing the CIA leak investigation, Romney said: "It's worth looking at that. I will study it very closely if I'm lucky enough to be president. And I'd keep that option open."

Perhaps spending time outside of Massachusetts has broadened Romney's horizons. The more time he spends in other states, the more sense he starts to make.

Well there you go. That's all the reason I need to not vote for Romney.

Mitt as the stalking horse. Of course! Why didn't I think of that?

Easy. I'm not Dick Cheney.
