Highspeed Derailment

Mitt Romney should make a campaign promise to cut all federal funds for California’s highspeed rail.
If you can promise to get rid of Obamacare, could you please get rid of Jerry’s train at the same time?
In Democrat-dominated California, if Mitt Romney is likely to lose the 55 electoral votes, he could make a point that would be popular outside of California, and strangely might be popular to a large number of the Golden state’s voters too.
Voters outside California would have a number of reasons to agree with cancelling this California pork, ultimately saving hundreds of billions.

Voters within California, a majority now having second thoughts about Jerry Brown’s train to nowhere, might hear fiscal sanity in a Romney promise to cut federal funding.  That might help Republicans in marginal races within the state.
What if it made California competitive by making its voters think about the economy?

You know, we did vote for Reagan. Several times.

Greetings from a 108-degree hot Sunday afternoon in Bakersfield, California. It's not that bad.
