Romney Supports Ethanol

Well, Mitt’s definitely no Tim Pawlenty:

Bombarded with questions following his talk at the Greater Des Moines Partnership’s Presidential Forum Speaker Series, the former Massachusetts governor told the gaggle of press and fans today that he supports the production of ethanol.

“I support the subsidy of ethanol,” said Romney, working his way through the Des Moines crowd, where he shook hands and doled out autographs. “I believe it’s an important part of our energy solution in this country.”

If I had one question to ask Mitt, it would be, “if ethanol is such a great fuel, why can’t it compete on its own without government subsidies?”

    Reason number 4,182 to not support him. Or was it 4,183? I lost track.

      Personally, I’m still in what I call “popcorn mode.”

      That is, I’m kicking back and watching the fireworks… I’ll decide which horse (or perhaps just the rear end of said critter–we are talking politicians here) to back after some of the dust settles and a few of them drop or are knocked out.
