Love him, hate him, or feel ambivalent toward him, Mitt Romney was “right about everything,” and that is standing him in good stead with the GOP.  Indeed, Politico is reporting that Romney is “working to rid the GOP presidential primary of the mayhem that marked his own race”: Mitt Romney is working…
