Romney barely wins his home state, in the north, where he is supposed to be most popular, by three percent. Erick Erickson says, "And this is our nominee — a guy who can only win in states with a home state advantage, New Englanders and New England transplants, and Mormoms."
Yeah, the Republican establishment sure can pick 'em can't they? One middle-the-road, Democrat half-breed candidate after another. Sheesh.
I remain enthused about Newt, whether anyone else is or not. If Romney is the nominee, we will lose. I suspect the Republicans actually prefer it that way. They would rather lose than see real reform occur, and make themselves subject to losing some of their own power. Conservatives are in the awkward position of expecting government to help reform itself. That's about like expecting a demon to exorcise itself. We're in a war for the life and soul of our country, and some people just don't get it. I have no idea how anyone thinks that we will get anywhere with a status quo candidate like Romney.
