No Super Tuesday Knockout Punch for Romney

Even when Mitt Romney wins, it only opens another can of worms.

Romney grabbed easy Super Tuesday wins in his home state of Massachusetts and nearby Vermont, and put a huge score of delegates from his Virginia victory on his scorecard -- where neither Rick Santorum nor Newt Gingrich made the ballot.


Mitt Sweeps, But Viability Questions Persist

Mitt Romney needed Michigan, and got the Wolverine State.

Perhaps Kid Rock's 11th hour performance was the lucky charm, and Romney should take the show on the road.

It wasn't the rout that was expected weeks ago, but for the relieved Romney a win is a win.



The Week From Hell for Mitt Romney

Let's put aside the obvious and historical tidbits.


Newt Gingrich wins big New Hampshire Endorsement

Newt Gingrich has nine lives.

We can laugh at his candidacy all we want too, but the joke may end up being on us. No one predicted Gingrich, with all of his baggage had any shot at winning the Republican Presidential Nomination.

Let’s see.


GOP debate was a long awaited showdown, Anderson Cooper delivered as moderator

It was the long awaited showdown between Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Finally one of the Presidential debates this year did not put us all to sleep.


Newt's Nuts

“To meddle for a half a second, I think if we had Mayor Giuliani for governor, and we had Governor Pataki for senator, we would be a large step toward a tidal wave, which would make 2010 comparable to 1994,” Mr. Gingrich said.

Newt's nuts.

George Pataki is politically dead in New York and has been for years. Rudy Giuliani was popular in 2001 (when he last held elected office), but 2010 is nine years removed from that. Giuliani's presidential campaign was a disaster to his name. Giuliani is making a mint doing consulting and will probably stay there.

If the Republican Party was serious about developing the Republican brand it New York, it could have done several things. It could have said "no" to allowing Michael Bloomberg back on its ticket. It could have pulled out a victory for Jim Tedisco in a Congressional special election for the current senator's old seat. That election was in a Republican stronghold, after all. But it's loss one and loss two.
