Will put it back soon. Need to restore from backup.
about the Dems potentially trying to screw Romney in MI. If I were Romney I would watch the numbers from the exit polls. If Romney loses by a percent or two, and then there is evidence that 5-10% of the voters were Democrats who voted 90% for Santorum, he would have a legitimate explanation. It would not substitute for a win, but he could claim that it's Democrats who are propelling Santorum forward, and that he is actually carrying Republicans.
"To discuss evil in a manner implying neutrality, is to sanction it." AR
Dem interference was not much of a factor. Most of us Dems rejected the idea of voting in the R primary. Kos' scheme was widely panned for several different, valid reasons. Hopefully he will not try to flex his muscles again.
A good night for Romney, but not decisive. Also good for Romney is that Santorum has been in full neanderthal mode recently, and I think even a lot of Republicans are probably thinking that he is damaging his electability. I do not think any of the final four will drop out in the near future, though, so Romney is still going to have to work for the nomination.
skymutt: accept no substitutes!
in that Romney was able to push the idiotic scheme, and incredibly Santorum willingly participating in it, in front of the Republican voters who came out strongly to support him.
He's done pretty much everything he was realistically expected to do:
stem not necessarily from the party views, but from a distinct lack of leadership. Well maybe not invading Egypt and a couple other places, which I doubt Romney would do.
...were so dictated by obvious necessity, that there was no choice but to continue them, most notably the bailouts. There is also the fact that there is no money to spend, and stalemate in Congress, so the possibility for change is limited.
Obama's first term has therefore been about managing a financial and economic crisis, winding down two foreign wars that are not serving our national interests, and repairing foreign alliances. That's been done more or less competently.
The only thing he managed to do to our economy, is not to proactively make everything much worse. Because while I mostly agree with the bailouts of the financial sector, his stimulus was a gigantic and immoral waste of taxpayer money. It created practically no jobs while adding another trillion to our debt.
Santorum can win stubborn 51% Dem states like PA and OH while not losing the traditional safe states.
in thinking that Santorum can carry those states :) He is unintelligent fanatic stuck in the 1950s who is also a liar.
But such a damning level of criticism can be said of almost any successful nation pol....D or R. But people still manage to like them. ;)
