Chris Cillizza was on the same wave length in his latest article:
Mitt Romney, having won six of the ten states voting on Super Tuesday including the grand prize of Ohio, almost certainly woke up Wednesday morning, read the news coverage of his victories and thought to himself: “What else do I have to do?”Read the rest of the article HERE.
And he could be forgiven for thinking that way. After all, the pre-Super Tuesday expectation-setting by the media — up to and including this here blog — suggested that if Romney vanquished former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum in Ohio he would have not only “won” the biggest primary day of the year but also taken a major step toward emerging as the Republican presidential nominee. There was no discussion about what Romney’s margin of victory had to be in Ohio in order for the win to truly count as a win.
And yet, when Romney won Ohio — by a single point or about 10,000 votes out of 1.2 million cast — as well as Virginia, Alaska, Massachusetts, Vermont and Idaho, the reaction from the political world amounted to a shoulder-shrug. Romney, the coverage suggested, had yet again barely cleared the bar to keep his nominal frontrunner status. Problems remained — and those problems became the centerpiece of the post-Super Tuesday coverage.
Even Jon Stewart realizes the absurdity of the above events:
How do you reach a goal if the rules keep changing and the goal post keeps moving?
