Democrats Rooting for Romney as Easiest to Beat?

Donna Brazile, a Democrat strategist, is rooting for Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination.  Why?  Because she thinks he will easiest for Obama to beat.  Per Michael Walsh of the New York Post:
Lost in the weekend’s back-to-back debates in New Hampshire was this illuminating remark by Democratic strategist Donna Brazile after Saturday night’s soporific contest in Manchester: “Mitt Romney won tonight because no one touched him. And for Democrats, you know what? It was good news for us . . . because we believe that the weakest candidate is the candidate that the Republicans are not attacking. And that’s Mitt Romney.”

The remark drew guffaws from some of the other assembled party faithful and media commentators, but Brazile spoke the truth. Democrats do believe that Romney is eminently beatable, the perfect foil for President Obama, in fact.
George Stephanopolous  responded, "Donna, you don't believe that!"  Rush pointed out on his show today that Stephanopolous was essentially telling Brazile to shut up, lest she let the cat out of the bag.

The Dems think Mitt will be the easiest Republican to beat.  I tend to agree.

Cut to the chase.

You have been screaming hysterically throughout the past year, "Any body but Mr Obama".

Are you not going to be voting for "business as usual" in the RepublicanT party when you vote for Mr Romney in November's election?

Business as usual would be to leave Obama in office, and I have no intention of helping him stay there.

I will vote for whoever the Republican candidate is. An incompetent Marxist (Obama) is not an option.

I do want to nominate the strongest possible GOP candidate and one that is more to my liking.

Jack Welch ex GE Chairman came out with strong positive words for Romney. Welch said he favors Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney, whom he called "The most qualified leader I've ever seen run for president of the United States."

A nice compliment from a legendary business leader.
