The silliness about punishing Santorum over Dem votes in the
Michigan primary is just a Romney talking point. McCain drew far more in 2000. As I recall, an
illegitimate illegitimate black child turned up in South
Carolina to derail McCain. If you want to talk...
With 95% of the vote in, Romney appears to have eeked out a
narrow popular vote win in his home state (thanks to early voting)
41% to 38%; however, the delegate count is currently tied at 11
apiece. After five years of running for POTUS, Mitt is still Mr.
As someone occasionally disparaged as one of those "true"
conservatives with no appreciation for electoral realities, this
presents an opportunity to dispel that silly myth, though I do also
believe that conservative ideas are often winning ideas
electorally, when properly articulated. I'd encourage you to read
this entire article on how ...
Via Nate Silver at the New York Times, one of the
best polling analysts in my view.
Since we ran the Michigan numbers early Monday morning, three
new polls are out that make the state look more like a true toss-up
and less like one that favors Mr. Romney.
Meanwhile, I find myself...
If Michael Medved saw Romney as unelectable in 2008, what
changed? Plus, how did that whole electable thing work out
back then? Moderate, schmoderate, as long as conservatives are
afraid of a fight, they will never win. I've rarely had much
patience for this type of thinking. Given where the...
Paul Mulshine suddenly has standards? Who knew? Yes, only a genius would drop a note like this after
another bit of mental meandering that doesn't stray far from the
mundane. Forget what it would do to Paul's brand and perhaps even
his son Rand's if he were to throw his...
It amazes me that people are allowing either some notion of
Romney as "the next in line," or their dissatisfaction with the
other candidates to distract them from Mitt Romney's political
incompetence. He misquoted George Costanza from Seinfeld,
only to be smacked down by actor Jason
Alexander, but Mitt would...
Here are two images of Mitt Romney protesting in support of
the Draft while in college. It appears they originally came
from Buzzfeed and or Politico.
Let’s not forget, that Mitt Romney actually attended Stanford
University for his freshman year of college. Unfortunately, I don’t
think this is enough to motivate Stanford...
Okay, perhaps technically not in my case, however, one could say
I made it in a Mitt Romney sort of a way. It's true if you fudge it
a bit, or just flat out lie, as Romney did in the recent debate.
One of Rubin's leading critics? I'll cop to...
An item I recently did for Big Journalism
prompted an, apparently, now former listener of WSPD in Toledo to
send me what is claimed to be several email exchanges he had with
the individual named in my post, Clear Channel WSPD host and
station director Brian Wilson.
Wilson doesn’t appear to think...
Quin Hillyer smeared Jeff Lord after Lord called out Jennifer Rubin for her obvious
Romney bias. The crux of Hillyer's argument was, look at all these
glowing posts about Rick Santorum. Of course, most of us knew they
were only intended to prop him up and hurt Gingrich. Unfortunately,
As I said previously, his lips were moving. AmSpec noted Romney's lie, as well.
As readers know, if there is one thing that gets under our skin
here at BCI, it is deception. This one by former Gov. Romney about
a situation here in Massachusetts affects how the country perceives
People can invent or re-invent reality however they wish, I
remember when Specter was running for re-election. The role he
could play in shepherding through prospective Bush appointments to
the high court most certainly was a topic of discussion in support
of his re-election. In fact, it may have been the...
Heck of Nevada endorsed Romney.
Heck: Romney wrong on foreclosures
Upton endorsed him in Michigan.
Romney Endorser Corrects Mitt On Auto Rescue: ‘No One Could
Have’ Saved The Industry Except The Government
This is what happens when you have a guy who talks out of both
sides of his mouth. Even people that endorsed him...
Santorum has his faults, but some of this type of criticism of him strikes me
as rather simple-minded piling on, little more than checking off
boxes on some voting score card. Does it...
With Romney and Santorum tied in Michigan, the race
may come down to organization versus activism. While unsure of what
infrastructure Romney has built up in the state, certainly Santorum
has been running on a shoe string and will have to rely more on
energy and emotion to get him...
Via Bill Jacobson, it's not only one change for one election. In a post
by Jen Kuznicki I linked and will again, she casts it as the GOP
rejecting values voters. But even that isn't the whole story.
Oh, how times have changed.
After significant Tea Party-fueled gains in 2010, for all
practical purposes, the...
