Anyways, George Will sounds the alarm bell:
“Romney and Rick Santorum … are conservatives, although of strikingly different stripes. Neither, however, seems likely to be elected. … If either is nominated, conservatives should vote for him. But … there would come a point when … conservatives turn their energies to a goal much more attainable than … electing Romney or Santorum president. It is the goal of retaining control of the House and winning control of the Senate. … [C]onservatives this year should have as their primary goal making sure Republicans wield all the gavels in Congress in 2013.
“If Republicans do, their committee majorities will serve as fine-mesh filters, removing President Obama’s initiatives from the stream of legislation … [A] re-elected Obama — a lame duck at noon next Jan. 20 — would have a substantially reduced capacity to do harm. … From Louisiana’s Gov. Bobby Jindal to Wisconsin’s Rep. Paul Ryan, Republicans have a rising generation of potential 2016 candidates. … [T]he presidency is not everything, and there will be another election in the next year divisible by four.”
