“Romneycare is okay because Romney has the best chance of winning in November”

That statement, by a Romney supporter on the Mark Levin show, pretty much sums up the problem with the primary season, and the willing disbelief about the problem we face with Romney as the nominee.

Here’s the full segment, if you want to jump in for the quote, click here:

Apathy will be the legacy of Romney’s carpet bombing

Mitt Romney had a strong win last night in Florida.  There’s no way to spin it otherwise, just as there was no way to spin Newt’s South Carolina win otherwise.

But at what cost?

Financially the cost was about $17 million for Romney and his SuperPAC, almost entirely on negative ads.  Of the...

What, our tax dollars aren’t good enough for you?  How ’bout we make you buy one of our Chevy Volts (as soon as we figure out how to stop them from catching fire)?

Allen West switching districts

Via Dan Riehl at Big Government, Allen West is escaping the bad redistricting and will be running in another district, in a game of musical chairs with a couple of others:

In a deal with several moving parts, Conservative favorite Rep. Allen West will move over and run in Rep. Tom Rooney’s...

Florida primary results

Looks like turnout down 200k from 2008.  Notice that when Romney ties/wins (IA, NH, FL) no turnout surge, when Newt won in SC huge turnout surge.  Turnout will be important in November 2012, and while Romney is winning, he’s not motivating new voters to come out.  Bad sign so far.

Really, just really

Really, just really (emphasis mine):

Mitt Romney says he was “outgunned” in South Carolina, blaming attacks from Newt Gingrich for his defeat there earlier this month.

“I needed to make sure that instead of being outgunned in terms of attacks, that I responded aggressively — and hopefully that will have served me well here,”...

Of course, it takes a publication like Mother Jones to pull this stuff up, but it hasn’t received a lot of attention since it was published in October.

There’s a curious reference to Teddy having to work in Washington in order for Massachusetts to pass Romneycare.

It hasn’t come up much, but here is an apparent financial explanation from...

Here was my response:

Correct diagnosis?

Update 4:10 p.m.:  I think this may be more of a concern than Romney hatred, people who became active in politics since the election of Obama who look at Romney and how big money and establishment support...

Romney poisoned the well

There is a trend developing to assign equal blame to the poisoned atmosphere in the Republican campaign, as if there were no cause just effect.

I’m not going to allow history to be rewritten the way the Romney campaign and its supporters tried to rewrite the history of the Reagan revolution and the...

Michael Reagan, in this interview with Mark Levin, shoots down the smears spread by the Romney campaign and its supporters regarding Newt and Ronald Reagan.

Meanwhile, Jeffrey Lord has another great piece, Newt Battles Mush From the Wimps (h/t jiminsocal in the Tip Line):

Allen West at the Revolution

I have this video posted on the Focus Page, but it’s worth bringing forward in light of the redistricting approved by Republican leadership in the Florida legislature which will make it hard for West to get reelected, and the SuperPAC formed to target West and 9 other Tea Party House members.

Update:  Mark Levin interviewed West on...
