Even Good Party Soldier Bill Kristol has half-turned on Mitt Romney now:

It's worth recalling that a good chunk of the 47 percent who don't pay income taxes are Romney supporters—especially of course seniors (who might well "believe they are entitled to heath care," a position Romney agrees with), as well as many lower-income Americans (including men and women serving in the military) who think conservative policies are better for the country even if they're not getting a tax cut under the Romney plan. So Romney seems to have contempt not just for the Democrats who oppose him, but for tens of millions who intend to vote for him.

Kristol calls Romney's comments "stupid and arrogant," but he insists with an almost-audible sigh, that Republicans have to vote for him in November. The poor guy almost sounds human in this column.
