Newt Gingrich said this week that a brokered GOP convention this year is a real possibility and that “a series of brand new players” could emerge. Rick Santorum thinks so, too.
Who might be a lead contender for the nomination if that happens? According to a PPP poll out this week, it’s Sarah Palin.
Yesterday should have been Mitt Romney’s day.
He’d won Illinois handily. And then he received the endorsement from Gallant to George W.’s Goofus—Jeb Bush. Then, you know: the Etch A Sketch thing.
Comic John Fugelsang asked Romney advisor Eric Fehrnstrom if Mitt had moved too far to right. Fehrnstrom then compared his boss to to a device that constantly erases itself. This was a flub, a real Washington gaffe in that someone accidentally told the truth.
As Jonathan Chait tweeted: “Political cynicism is smart.…
No words. Just watch:
And, from the American Bridge PAC:
The Romney campaign put out a nice press release today announcing the endorsement of MI-10 Congresswoman Candice Miller.
Mitt Romney is just like an Etch-A-Sketch where you can clear the message and start over again at any time without any trace of the past. That’s not ME saying that. It’s his spokesperson & Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom :
Appearing on CNN this morning, Romney Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom was asked if he’s concerned that Romney may alienate general election voters with some of the hard-right positions he’s taken during the primary to appeal to conservatives. Fehrnstrom brushed this concern off:
HOST: Is there a concern that Santorum and Gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right it would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election.
Last summer I posted a rant against the GOP’s demonization of teachers that gained a bit of traction. It went like this:
A top economic adviser for Mitt Romney, a Harvard professor named Greg Mankiw posted a “joke” on his blog yesterday that really makes you question the guy’s judgement. Here’s a screen shot:
Oh, hardy har har har, eh? Those senile old people, they are soo-ooo funny! And, hey, that’s a sure fire way to win over the senior and Hispanic voters in this country.…
A few weeks ago, I asked you to call Mitt Romney a liar.
I’m not the only one obsessed with Mitt’s lying, of course. Fine minds including Steve Benen, Greg Sargent, Jonathan Chait and Jamelle Bouie have all been struggling with Mitt’s disturbing willingness to dissemble and the media’s even more disturbing unwillingness to call him on his lies.
It seems clear now. Mitt isn’t going to stop lying. Why?
Mitt would rather be seen as a liar than be seen as what he is: a con man willing to take any position he needs to take to win.…
There’s only one explanation: Mitt Romney is a robot sent back from the future to destroy Mitt Romney.
How else do you explain this passionate defense of a woman’s right to a safe abortion?
Or who can forget, “I like mandates. The mandates work.”
And here’s my favorite: “The blind trust is an age old ruse.”
Of course, Mitt Romney described a blind trust is an “age old ruse” in 1994. Future Romney knew that the blind trust would become his defense from everything. He’d use it to defend investing in the Cayman Islands and Swiss bank accounts.…
