Is a Primary Challenge to Obama a Bad Idea? ctd "Anybody but Obama!"

Alexander Cockburn asks if we’re ready to vote for Mitt Romney:

In 2013 we could be faced with a Republican majorities in both houses and the prospect of Obama spending four years catering obediently to their requirements, defusing all liberal and left opposition.  We need a Republican in the White House to dispel narcosis which will otherwise neutralize left activity till 2016.  Who? Michele Bachmann is popular mostly with Tea Party ultras, Jon Huntsman with the Washington elites.  Gov. Rick Perry of Texas has yet to enter the race and is loathed by the Bush clan.  At present the only candidate within reach of Obama is Mitt Romney, the Mormon millionaire businessman whose nomination bid fizzled in 2008.
I acknowledge the obvious: the clothes, the grin, the unrelenting fakery that  so blatantly imbues every atom of his being. Mitt is a hard sell and his drive to be the first Mormon president is surely not helped by this summer’s Mormon-in-the-headlines — Warren Jeffs , now convicted of  child rape.
