"You never go full McCain"

"[H]ey, trust me, put me in the job and we’ll deal with all those silly fiddly details later. And you know what...this had a reasonably good chance of working. But ultimately it only works if you actually trust Romney — or alternately, have no reason to distrust Romney — to make sane, responsible and intelligent decisions.

"Which is why Romney blew up his chance to be president this week: He showed, manifestly, that he’s indeed capable of making horrible, awful, very bad, no good, terrible choices.

"It’s as if at every turn in the crisis Romney had an opportunity to do something that wouldn’t make him look like a cat with a bag on its head navigating through a room full of bar stool legs, and chose instead the opposing course. It’s impressive in its way, but it’s a not a good way to be impressive."


On a related note, I showed my kids McCain's 2008 concession speech:

I loved McCain once, not without reason, but of that campaign I must say nothing became him like the leaving of it.  So let it be with Romney.
