I love how Politico has an article out titled "No spark for Romney in Illinois, and they cite a poll taken March 8-9 with Mitt leading by 4 points, no mention of latest polls.

I've noticed the same thing all across the media. As Romney increasingly looks like he'll win the nomination, the media gnats get working more furiously than ever (often aided by Santy). For example, on the same day that Romney swept Puerto Rico, the Sunday NEW YORK TIMES carried on its front page above the fold an article titled "Like It or Not, G.O.P. Girding For Floor Fight." And, my personal "pet" peeve, how many times are we going to be subjected to the absurd non-story about the Romneys' beautiful Seamus?

Fox Special Report did a hit job on Romney tonight. They said he could not argue against Obamacare..which is nonsense of course. If anything he can do a better job arguing against it.

More fuel for the fire of this conversation. Several prominent MSM websites are going out of their way to interject that Santorum's (dumb, dumber, and dumbest) statement--"I don't care what the unemployment rate's going to be. Doesn't matter to me."--is being taken OUT OF CONTEXT by the Romney campaign. Yet when Romney said, "I am not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there," he was treated like Jack the Ripper by the very same MSM sites. I'm not surprised how Romney was treated, but it really does stun me how the media is shilling (is that the right word?) for Santorum.

"To win in November, Romney will have to make history. Not by being one of the wealthiest men elected president, or even the first Mormon, but by changing more minds that are more deeply set against him than any other nominee in recent memory. If he can’t convince the unprecedented number of voters who have already decided they don’t like him that, actually, they do, he will be heading back to Massachusetts—or New Hampshire, or California, or Utah—come November 6."

I totally agree; look at the numbers, run the math for Romney. I for one will stand down on voting for him should he be nominated. G. Romney stood down on Goldwater in 1964; I will return the favor to Romney this Fall if he does squeak by.

The sad thing, Anon@9:13, is that Santorum is not taken out of context. Even the full, contextual statement is damning. He states that his campaign is about freedom, while he is also advocating government control over moral issues.

We know LionHead that you will stand down, you have your mind set on Obama winning.

@ Lionhead

Now you're citing left-wing websites like The Daily Beast?

How low can you go in your desperate attempt to stop the Mormon?

Pathetic, absolutely pathetic.

And BTW, I challenge you to name a GOP challenger in the last 60 years better situated - according to the polls - than Romney is at this point in the election cycle to defeat an incumbent Democratic president.

Don't worry, I won't hold my breath waiting for your response.
