Enough already. Enough with “all likelihood” equivocation and highbrow invocation of “campaign conventions.” The Left knows how to brawl. The Left knows how to create new “campaign conventions” from scratch. It’s time that conservatives recognize that the rules they thought governed campaigns in 1992 no longer apply. This crowd we are up against has rewritten the book on governance, on politics, on convention, all in the name of rewriting the book on America.
Romney can show he understands what he is up against by ignoring the debating society on the right. He should roll up his sleeves and swing. He should release his tax returns after Obama releases his academic records and Holder releases Fast and Furious documents to Chairman Issa — and plainly say so.
