Maureen Dowd, "My Mitt Fantasy": Don't Send Me Your Laundry Bill

In her latest New York Times op-ed entitled "My Mitt Fantasy" (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/24/opinion/dowd-my-mitt-fantasy.html), Maureen Dowd begins by speculating upon the possiblility of an Electoral College tie in November:

"If Romney does suspend voter disbelief enough to tie President Obama, with each getting 269 Electoral College votes, the Republican-controlled House would determine the president — and give it to Mitt. And the (presumably) Democratic-controlled Senate would determine the vice president — and give it to Joe Biden."

Sorry, Maureen, you can continue to fantasize, but it's not going to happen.

Further along in her opinion piece, Dowd attacks Romney for moving to the middle:

"And the race is vise-tight because Mitt’s a marvel. Never in modern memory has a presidential candidate so brazenly contorted himself, switching positions to suit the moment and pushing claims, like about Obama’s imaginary 'apology tour,' that have been debunked.

. . . .

Mitt may have made so many compromises to get the prize that he doesn’t have a true self anymore. And that’s the scariest thought of all."

Well, if Romney does continue to contort himself as the next president, just maybe he will be able to achieve bipartisan compromises and bust open Congressional gridlock. Is that really so scary?
