    You freaking theologians are missing the point.  No matter how many legal angels you stuff on the head of this particular pin, Romney cut American jobs. No matter what Galsworthy-esque paeans to the defense of Capital you chant, in a country with over 12% actual unemployment, the RNC wants to anoint a candidate who CUT AMERICAN JOBS.  This is so self-evidently a nonstarter that any further discussion just shows how far out of the loop the GOP and its commentariat have dropped.

    1. Publishing the links does not constitute endorsement of said links.
    2. I’m not a Romney supporter by any means; frankly, I don’t think he can be trusted not to hose the GOP on the home front the same way W did. This doesn’t mean I have to go along with every turd flung by the other monkeys in the cage.
