Mitt Romney Super Tuesday

Sunday Roundup

What does it look like when something catches fire? And what does it look like when it doesn't? This week we had a stark example of both. There was the incredible virality of the Kony 2012 video, which has become the fastest growing social media campaign of all time, having garnered over 67 million YouTube views in less than a week. Clearly the film has struck a nerve. The same can't be said of Mitt Romney's campaign, which is still struggling to go viral with the GOP base. Following a less than decisive Super Tuesday performance, Romney continued his Awkward Tour of America. After failing to ingratiate himself to Tennessee voters by reciting the lyrics to "The Ballad of Davy Crockett" on Monday, he ended the week in Mississippi, where he declared, "I like grits." Thud. Maybe he should hire the team at Invisible Children to make his next round of campaign ads.

All Mitt Romney has been doing for five years is training to run for President. How much better can he get at this? Pretty sure his learning curve has used up all its bendy parts.

Romney Needs Patience To Replace Panic After Super Tuesday

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 05.06.2012 | Politics

As much as I'd like to help everyone pretend that tonight's Super Tuesday results are going to be partly cloudy with a chance of some interesting twists, I think what I'm going to do instead is lay down a great big spoiler. So, you've been warned! At the end of the night, Mitt Romney's campaign will be able to plainly state that it has won a plurality of the delegates at stake, that it's nearer than any of its competitors to the magic number of 1,144 delegates and that it has widened its lead over the rest of the competition. That's the good news. The bad news, for Romney, is that he'll still be many hundreds of delegates short of the mark.

Barack Obama has only one enemy left standing and it's not Hillary Clinton. It's time itself. All the evidence is in: the more that voters are exposed to Obama, the more they flock to him. The more they see Hillary Clinton, the more stagnant her numbers.
