MITT ROMNEY, "The Incidental Candidiate" (Howard Fineman, The Huffington Post, May 20)
What better way to turn the Executive Branch of the US Government into a Rubber Stamp for low-tax-for-the-rich radicals than to elect a nervous Republican eager to placate its most vociferous members in the Congress ?
"Anti-tax lobbyist Grover Norquist depicts the Romney presidency -- if there is one -- as a kind of figurehead monarchy in which the real power will lie with Congress, and within Congress, the power will lie with tax-cutting conservatives such as Norquist.
"All we have to do is replace Obama," Norquist said in February. "We are not auditioning for Fearless Leader. We don't need a president to tell us in what direction to go. We know what direction to go. We want the Ryan budget. We just need a president to sign this stuff."http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/20/mitt-romney-campaign-the-incidental-candidate_n_1528252.html?ref=topbar
