I consider myself to be somewhat of an expert on Dick Morris, but I honestly didn't see this one coming. Here is Dick giving Romney a fair shake. At the end, he states that "the Republican Party can do a lot worse than Mitt Romney" and "Mitt Romney can defeat Barack Obama" and "no matter what you think, President Romney has a much better ring to it than President Obama."
I am baffled. Dick does not sell books to Romney supporters, so why? Here he was back in October 2010 telling a Tea Party gathering that he "opposes Mitt Romney."
During the 2008 Republican primaries, Morris did not utter a single, kind word about Romney. Why the sudden change of heart? I honestly have no clue. It is not because there aren't other Tea Party candidates for Morris to push (Bachmann, Santorum, Palin). We will have to wait and see how this plays out.
