The EFM Feature
  1. The “Mormon in the White House” debate will take on a tired, “been there, done that” feel.
  2. Barring a stunning turnaround, economic issues will dominate the debate far more than they did during primary season, 2008, and no one is better on the economy than Mitt. (In fact, even if the economy does improve, budget deficits alone will create a sense of urgency amongst fiscal conservatives).
  3. The “flip-flopper” meme will have much less force after four more years of Mitt’s consistent voice and presence on the national scene. His opponents will be less able to define him. He will have defined himself.
  4. Perhaps this is wishful thinking, but I believe conservatives may well have learned the hard lessons of 2008 and are more likely to unite behind a candidate early, rather than allow their own divisions to create an opening for a moderate, minority vote-getter.
  5. And, most importantly . . .┬áBy 2008, EFM only had slightly more than two years for the relentless logic of its position to capture the public imagination. This time, we’re more than three years ahead of the game. Three plus years of our (well, mostly Nancy’s) brilliance should be more than enough to put Mitt over the top.
