Should be fun Sloth I hope you enjoy it –
One problem with your underlying implication, I haven’t even had a chance to vote yet. Furthermore, I distribute no political newsletters, or maintain a political blog, radio station, or news channel, from which I would’ve turned this primary against Romney. In short, I haven’t lost this for Romney. Romney lost it for Romney.
Gallup today; Romney’s lead in national polling down to 1%. And that’s a five day average…
$7 million in TV ads compared to $800 here in Florida, Romney v. Newt. And Romney is on the verge of losing what was supposed to be the state of his coronation. And at this rate, losing decisively. Scary part? Santorum, Newt’s close friend, whose base despises Romney for his attack ads (Like Perry’s and Newt’s), hasn’t even dropped yet. If he drops, Newt gets that support by a large margin. At this point he doesn’t even need it, but if/when Santorum bows out…Oof.
Vast monetary advantage, super-dooper, high powered campaign team. The support of much of the cocktail-party establishment commentariat (NRO, for example). The kid’s gloves approach from the MSM. Yet, look what’s happened, regardless?
You can buy the finest bread, cheese, fresh veggies, and condiments, slap it all around a turd…Have the finest, most respected, head chefs tell you this turd sandwich is INEVITABLY a great sandwich…but to the customers, it’s still a turd sandwich.
No Zeb, I’m no one influential. The republican base, the customers who’ve sampled the offered cuisine of Cafe-Primary, have rejected the high-priced, finally dressed, turd sandwich on their own.
