On having it all (not). The results of today's Boston Globe/WBZ-TV poll are the perfect example of what happens when you pander instead of lead. Governor Mitt Romney isn't the only culprit, but he is certainly the most significant one.

Read the grim details for yourself, but an overwhelming majority opposes raising the income tax, opposes raising the sales tax, opposes raising tuition at public colleges, opposes cutting local aid, and really, really opposes (by 73 percent to eight percent) cutting human-services funding.

They want it all, and they don't want to pay for it. Romney got elected, in part, because he never disabused voters of such ridiculous notions.
