Liberal Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank’s latest offering is confusing. Milbank is critical of Mitt Romney for returning to private business after losing the election instead of sticking around to help sort out the mess in DC:
Romney’s post-election behavior has been, in a word, small. Never again, likely, will his voice and influence be as powerful as they are now. Yet rather than stepping forward to help find a way out of the fiscal standoff, or to help his party rebuild itself, he delivered a perfunctory concession speech, told wealthy donors that President Obama won by giving “gifts” to minorities, then avoided the press at a private lunch with the president.
If Milbank wanted Romney to stick around and help find a way out of the fiscal mess, maybe Dana should have voted for him… ya think?
