when he says neither Santorum nor Romney can beat President Obama and that it's time to focus on "Plan B," keeping control of the House and getting the Senate. I guess where there's a Will, there's no way. Or perhaps Will's strategy is surrender now and avoid the autumn rush. Bill Kristol at the Weekly Standard argues here why he thinks Will is wrong.
Let me add this; I don't see this as an either or proposition. If you're running a single conservative agenda, you should be able to work for both. When it comes to allocation of assets, I still think that's true. But I think it's preposterous to argue in early March that the battle is lost.
Nobody on the radio is more honest than I am when it comes to admitting a race is lost. I did so to the consternation of my listeners in 2006 and 2008, when the national hosts were annoying me with their "remain calm, all is well routine" when I could see the Texas-sized ass kicking coming. if I thought such an outcome was already inevitable, I would say so. It isn't perhaps Will is hoping his influenential column can lead to a self-fulfilling prophesy. Here's hoping it makes him look like a politically tone deaf horses ass.
