Romney ought to be worried about further alienating his base. He can't go around stating obvious facts, such as:
"Well because, if you take a trillion dollars for instance, out of the first year of the federal budget, that would shrink GDP over 5 percent. That is by definition throwing us into recession or depression. So I'm not going to do that, of course.""If you just cut, if all you're thinking about doing is cutting spending, as you cut spending you'll slow down the economy.""I don't want to have us go into a recession in order to balance the budget. I'd like to have us have high rates of growth at the same time we bring down federal spending, on, if you will, a ramp that's affordable, but that does not cause us to enter into a economic decline."
No sir, that kind of talk is only for the reality-based community, not the Republican Party.
