There are so many good stories out there today. The best one is that conservatives are coalescing around Romney. Tell all your friends. Get all other conservatives to join the, dare I say, Romney Revolt (if you can come up with a better name, let us know).

On to other news:

Vin Weber calls for conservatives to unite around Romney: On each of the major challenges confronting our country, Washington has failed to act. Mr. Romney will not. Throughout his career in business and public service, he has never failed to meet a challenge. That is leadership we need today...The source of America's greatness is the American people. That is why Washington needs to get the job done today. By taking action today, we can build a stronger America by strengthening each and every American. To do that, we need Mr. Romney's leadership in Washington -- leadership that understands that Washington is the obstacle not the solution.

Thomas Sowell tells us about McCain's crooked talk: We have been hearing for years that Senator John McCain gives “straight talk” and his bus has been endlessly referred to as the “Straight Talk Express.” But endless repetition does not make something true.The fact that McCain makes short, blunt statements does not make him a straight-talker.There are short, blunt lies.

City Journal's Nicole Gelinas lauds Romney's smart tax plan: Unlike Washington politicians, vying to outdo one another printing money to rescue Americans from falling home prices, Romney has proposed a bold long-term tax policy that would encourage Americans to choose their investments, both housing and otherwise, more wisely...This elegantly simple proposal would invite Americans to save and invest as much as they can or wish to without worrying about mind-numbingly complicated tax calculations.

Captain Ed takes McCain to task over McCain-Feingold: It does point up a problem with all of the campaign-finance reform nonsense that Congress has imposed on the process. Money finds its way into the process no matter how many artificial barriers get imposed and artificial categories created for it. Americans express their support by their pocketbook -- and they turn to other mechanisms when thwarted in efforts to directly support candidates. That accounts for the rise of 527s and their mostly-negative impact on national politics...Now the author of the BCRA wants to complain about running against a candidate who self-funds. John McCain can't have it both ways. If he dislikes the wealthy who have to spend their own money to challenge the power system, then get rid of the Byzantine mess that his McCain-Feingold bill has created -- and its attendant insults to the First Amendment. That's what is truly "alarming" in politics.

Jed Babin says McCain is the Anti-Conservative: In nuclear physics, every subatomic particle has an opposite. When they collide, they combine to produce another particle that resembles neither. McCain is the political antimatter that collides with conservatism and produces “liberal republicanism.” If John McCain is the Republican nominee, conservatism will be where we were in 1965: having to feed the conservative phoenix rising out of the ashes.

David Limbaugh agrees with Babin that McCain is the Anti-Conservative: It's true that McCain is unpopular with Reagan conservatives because he decidedly is not, on far too many issues, a Reagan conservative. But it's more than that. He is the anti-conservative. He instinctively sides against conservatives and relishes poking them in the eye.

Romney revolution sounds a lot better. A revolt pits you against another (which is the case here against McCain). But Revolution carries the additional sentiment that your side has a cuase (or a conservative position) worth fighting for.

But the Ron Paul people have already coined that...and we don't want to associate with anything they do, then we'll be the ones who start to sound crazy. =P

Is it possible?:
With the race down between McCain and Romney, and this backlash of conservatives against McCain, if Romney can come back and pull through as the nominee, could this whole crazy race actually HELP Romney in the general election? Conservatives are rallying around Romney as the Conservative/Reagan Coalition candidate, when earlier in the primary season some were concerned that he was a "flip-flopper" and not a real conservative. What does everyone else think about this?

Romney Rally---Get out the Rally caps!!!
