McCain, Romney and Perspective on ‘Reform’

Mitt Romney will not seek donations in order to pay back the $45 million he personally loaned his presidential campaign.

This Boston Globe story speaks unintentional volumes about the scope of the problem we face from Washington.

From that Globe story, here’s why Romney’s decision may harm his chances of being McCain’s running mate, which pretty much highlights one of my problems with McCain:

Some analysts said McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, might undermine his reform message if he picks someone who bankrolled so much of his own campaign.

This is the world that has been created in Washington with the help of McCain-style “reform” — It’s actually considered somehow unethical to use your own money to pay for something.

No wonder things are so screwed up.
