Syndicated Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank thinks that Mitt Romney should stick his nose in the "fiscal cliff" war in Washington because "Romney's voice could be enough to return his party to reason" ("Romney can retire later," Opinion, Dec. 6). How can anyone believe that?
Would Republican House Speaker John Boehner or even Romney's vice presidential mate, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, welcome an outsider to the House telling them what to do? Hardly.
And is there any chance that Romney could rally the dispirited and disorganized Republican masses to a consensus opinion? Not at all.
