MARK LEVIN: I’ve been thinking during the break because this story broke on my watch — can you imagine? This is actually bad politics not only will Romney be defending Bain right up through the election now he’s going have to be defending Bush and Bush’s policies right up through the election. This is a bad idea. No offense, Condi Rice.
Didn’t they say throughout the Republican primary we had a nominee Romney because he’s the only one who could win? Why am I the only one remembers that?
And these polls, don’t they make you nervous right now? The economy’s on its back. Romney’s running against a true loser who has nothing to offer the country, literally nothing. So he’s a propagandist. So far the Romney team has not been able to cut through it and then you get this John Sununu — who gave us Souter for all those years — walking around like he some kind of smart uncle telling us they are husbanding their resources are just waiting for the right time to unleash on Obama.
Obama’s spending the summer trying to define Romney, successful or not, and Romney’s not spending the summer trying to define Obama, which he must do. So here we are debating Bain capital. And then we’ll be debating RomneyCare. And if he does pick Rice, then will be debating the entire George W. Bush record which is exactly what the Bush people want. Well it’s not what I want.
Now pick a damn conservative whose managed something. He’s got a strong bench to choose from and stop playing it safe. That’s my opinion. Nothing personal. Nothing personal. But I mean we’ve got great Governors out there, who are a lot of good and who have shown a lot of courage among other people, by the way. Among others. So let’s get with it. Can’t we win this damn race? Can’t we act like we actually want to? Can’t we be confident in our conservatism?
