Coburn being a fiscal conservative, I can well see why Coburn endorsed Romney and not Santorum.

It should be clear.

Coburn supported the product of the deficit commission that he was on. He really worries about deficits. If you do worry, Mittens is a better choice than Rick in my opinion, and I suspect his. That is for starters. Beyond that, most GOP elected officials I suspect at this point, really want this primary to be over. It just  isn't helping their objectives at this point.

Even with his new tax plan?

LOL if you really care about deficits, you support Obama. Rommey's "cut taxes, massively expand the military" budget will bankrupt us.

That's was rolled out because Mittens got nervous, which is a pity. I doubt anyone takes it seriously. But even with that, Rick's math and assumptions are still considerably more unrealistic - to say the least.

When Obama starts saying, much less doing, one f'ing useful thing about reining in entitlements, get back to me. That swamps everything else by a huge margin. That is the single biggest factor about Obama that really engages me. The man has been AWOL! It's a disgrace in my opinion. He's putting our nation at risk on that one.

Even if taxes on "the rich" hit 100%, we still are in deep trouble unless something rather major is done. Mittens does not want to expand the military budget much if at all, he wants to keep spending about where it is (moving money around, and cutting out "waste" so he can build more boats), while Obama wants to cut it. On that one, I probably lean more towards Obama (the "waste" thing for some reason never seems to translate into saving real dollars when someone ran on getting rid of it, and then gets elected and has an opportunity to do so). But again that is rounding error relatively speaking as compared to entitlements, and in particular, medical subsidies, which are eating us alive.

Obama is the one running perpetual trillion dollar deficits. He has racked up more debt than every president of the 19th and 20th centuries combined. Give him four more years and he'll have racked up more debt than all presidents before him combined.

Not when we're done moving every social program we can move off the books of the federal government and onto the states, where they can decide what stays and what goes. If all goes well, Medicare and Social Security will be the only federal social programs left standing after eight years of Mitt.

Mitt Romney is going to reform Washington in the vision of Adam Smith.

No, he hasn't. Bush has still racked up more in his 8 years than Obama has.

The 19th/20th century figure is also incorrect. Obama has not racked up $5.7 trillion in debt.

Laissez-fairism is fortunately dead.

It could make a dramatic comeback when bureaucrats cease drawing a salary. Post-war Germany and Japan were more "laissez-faire" than ever before, or after. The former Soviet Union moved towards a more market system when its economy stalled. Seems laissez faire is only tried if no option is feasible. Fortunately for Japan and Germany it worked.

Romney is pretty right-wing and has gotten a lot of right-wing endorsements. Ann Coulter and Christine O'Donnell are some other extremists who endorsed him.

Describing the postwar Japanese economic system as 'laissez-faire', considering its mercantilism and the whole amakudari phenomenon (basically, a 'revolving door' on steroids), strikes me as a bit off-base, even though it's true that the government didn't intervene particularly much in the internal market except to hand down Bismarckian dicta on a few specific benefit policies.

I suggest you analyze the meaning of the words "more... than ever before, or after."
