Roll Over for Romney?

Posted on | March 26, 2012 | 54 Comments

Kiss my ass!

Between his inevitability and his electability, Romney’s advocates would have you believe their man is an unstoppable electoral juggernaut, a lead-pipe cinch to become the next President of the United States, and they’ve managed to sell that proposition with the assistance of journalists who seem suspiciously eager to ignore all evidence to the contrary. So when Santorum won his 11th victory Saturday in Louisiana by a margin much larger than anyone had predicted, the media went out of their way to pretend that this result was neither surprising nor significant. Fox News actually interrupted coverage of Santorum’s victory speech in order to permit their reporter Carl Cameron to provide the pro-Romney angle on the Louisiana vote. Sunday morning, Fox brought on Romney surrogate John Sununu and gave him 10 minutes of airtime to pour cold water on any notion that Santorum’s 22-point margin of victory in Louisiana might portend any meaningful revival of conservative resistance to Mitt. . . .

UPDATE: Daria DiGiovanni stands by Santorum:

It’s refreshing to watch a GOP candidate for President express the outrage so many of us are currently feeling.

    Romney tends to understate his criticisms. So, if he says “Obama’s a nice man, over his head”, he’s very likely damning with faint praise and he means feckless incompetent.

     Ohio should have told you something. The farther along he goes losing states like that, the worse it gets for him. I’m actually being kind in saying he might yet have even a slim chance at this point.

    I’m hardly enough to damage Romney’s prospects! That’s hilarious.

    No, if anyone is damaging Romney’s prospects, it’s probably somebody a lot more important and influential than me…like maybe Mitt himself.

    Might I suggest then that he learn to not understate quite so much?
