From Byron York, Conservatives urge Romney not to attack Santorum:

Mitt Romney met privately with a group of conservative activists and opinion leaders Thursday, on the eve of his speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.  In a wide-ranging discussion, a number of participants urged Romney to refrain from attacking...

John Hinderaker at Power Line lays the blame for an eventual loss to Obama primarily at the feet of Newt:

Nevertheless, if you are a Republican, the vibes are very bad. The presidential primary season has turned into a disaster, in my view. Mitt Romney has shown a discouraging inability to appeal to...

As was documented by Jeffrey Lord at The American Spectator, the floor speech Newt gave about Reagan’s “failing” Soviet policy in 1986 was filled with praise for Reagan and the criticisms of the policy raised in the speech were common...

Romney does not appear to be falling for the second political death (or is it third?) of Newt, because his SuperPAC still is going negative against Newt.

Perhaps his team knows, based on internal polling, that for all of Santorum’s caucus wins and next best thing hoopla, Newt remains the greatest threat in big ticket...

“Your life or your limb” Tweet of the Day

Conservative blogger John Hawkins (Right Wing News and elsewhere) poses the age-old conservative question:

Choose to have your head cut off with a chainsaw (voting for Obama) or just a limb removed (voting for Mitt).

John chooses life and limb (he’s a Newt supporter).

Mitt Romney has outspent Newt Gingrich on negative advertising in every state, starting in Iowa, and was the first to go negative every time.

Yet Romney, with absolute conviction, continues to say that the reason he lost South Carolina was that he was outspent by Newt, which is not true.

Trump was dealing from the bottom of the deck.

And double-dealing.

Mitt thought he was playing poker, but Trump snookered him.

It was a three-card Monte game, but only two cards showed up.

Jennifer Rubin, the “right” blogger at The Washington Post and incessant Romney promoter, repeatedly has lashed out at Newt Gingrich with truly vile language unbecoming a writer at a major newspaper.

At 9:00 a.m. this morning, when Rubin thought Donald Trump would be endorsing Newt, here is what Rubin wrote in a post titled Egomaniacs R...

Similar mailers have been running for days.

I suppose Mitt will tell us that he only is going negative because Newt outspent him in Florida.

Who is it that can’t be trusted?

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.

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...

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...

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...
