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.

Good MoDo, good

Posted by  ▪  January 22, 2012
