Mitt Romney took anti-Newt Reagan line from Ann Coulter

Posted by  ▪  January 23, 2012
Mitt Romney used a line at the last debate to minimize Newt’s claim to have worked with Ronald Reagan (transcipt, emphasis mine): MR. ROMNEY: … I mean, Mr. Speaker, it was — it was — you talk about all the things you did with Ronald Reagan and — and — and the Reagan…

People who destroy hard drives shouldn’t demand records from others

Posted by  ▪  January 23, 2012
Why is he doing this? Is his campaign really that incompetent? Having successfully shut down scrutiny in the primaries (but not the general election) of his Bain record with unfounded cries of “Newt’s attacking capitalism and free markets,” Romney is back to what started it all, the demand that Newt give back t…

Mitt Romney sides with Nancy Pelosi

Posted by  ▪  January 23, 2012
Mitt Romney’s campaign is in trouble.  The trouble is not just the South Carolina vote count.  Romney’s internal polling almost certainly also showed that he was behind in Florida, as public polling released today reflects. More worrisome for Romney is a growing chorus of doubters within the Republican establishment and conservative media who…

Gabrielle Giffords to resign from Congress

Posted by  ▪  January 22, 2012
It’s not very surprising.  While her recovery is miraculous, the strain of staying in Congress would have been too much.  But she and her husband needed to reach the conclusion with the benefit of time. Via ABC News: Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords will step down from the House this week and not seek…

Good MoDo, good

Posted by  ▪  January 22, 2012
When MoDo is good, she’s really good.  When she’s bad, she’s really bad. This is really good MoDo: Reagan didn’t socialize with the press. He spent his evenings with Nancy, watching TV with dinner trays. But he knew that to transcend, you can’t condescend. The portrait of the first couple in Jodi Kantor’s new…

Fearmongers for Romney

Posted by  ▪  January 22, 2012
It’s really no surprise. As Mitt Romney has faltered from inevitability to modest favorite, a chorus of pro-Romney voices in the media and Republican Party is insisting that if Newt is the nominee, we not only lose the presidency we also lose the House and fail to take back the Senate. It’s…

Posted by  ▪  January 22, 2012
Here were the final results in South Carolina:  Gingrich 40.4, Romney 27.8, Santorum, 17, Paul 13. Drop Out Argument:  On what basis does Santorum continue?  His Iowa momentum never lasted beyond Iowa.  South Carolina, with a large evangelical vote whose leadership endorsed him, was Santorum’s best chance, and he could only muster…
