Grover Norquist is the leader of the Republican party, not Limbaugh, not Romney, not Bouhner.
The scary part is Norquist is so sure about his dictatorial position he can openly be arrogant about it, doesn't even care if Romney hears it or the media tapes it.
Here's what Norquist thinks of Romney.
Quote: All we have to do is replace Obama. ... We are not auditioning for fearless leader. We don't need a president to tell us in what direction to go. We know what direction to go. We want the Ryan budget. ... We just need a president to sign this stuff. We don't need someone to think it up or design it.
Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United States. His job is to be captain of the team, to sign the legislation that has already been prepared.
This makes as eloquent a pro-Romney statement as I have heard from conservatives, which isn't much. Sure, he might be a waffling, shambling mound of dubious ideals and conflicting statements, but hey—does it really matter? All we need is a guy who will shut up, do what we say.
