Give it up, Jonah. He's an Establishment Republican -- a Official Certified Dinosaur. Dinosaurs have no Leviathan-fighting skills. You can't reinvent him. His type may be interesting to paleontologists but not to voters.

I'm sorry, Reticulator, but it sounds to me that you're just regurgitating what the likes of CNN's David Frum and John Avlon have said. I'm not going to be led by the definitions given for Romney by the main stream media.
In short, I vote and I like dinosaurs.

Better than a stinking vat of putrid primordial slime, which is what his competition is. Makes a Certified Dinosaur seem wonderful in comparison. Raptors WERE cool. They were fast, incredibly successful and made literal mincemeat out of their competition. They were the Alpha predators of their age, and their age went on for MILLIONS of years. I guess it would be too much though, to expect Mittens to actually tear Obama limb from limb and literally eat him on live TV, but is does make a great daydream. Dinosaur hmmm? All in how you look at it.

Romney will get almost all of Paul's supporters.

You really don't understand Paul's supporters, do you?

President Obama's re-election largely hinges on his ability to play young voters for suckers -- again -- and whether Mitt Romney will let him.

In 2008, Obama won the youth vote by better than a 2-1 margin, 66 percent to 32 percent. Even more impressive, he actually expanded the share of young voters going to the polls by some 3 million. Those extra voters helped tip several swing states.

Obama owed his success to being a charming political unknown onto whom young people could project their hopes. His rhetoric was a hipsterized version of Successories for college kids:...
