View Diary: Four reasons why Mitt Romney will be the nominee (171 comments)

  •  Reason #5--he spends his opponents into the ground (5+ / 0-)

    A site that has long emphasized the importance of $ in politics should understand that basic fact.

    Reason #6--Santorum put most of his eggs in the IA basket.  I understand that Romney has a vastly superior field operation there.  This site also seems to think that's important, too.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

        as anti-choice as himself -- this time he'll have the true believers to himself, or will if Perry finally heads back to his rented Governor's Mansion in Texas. With questions being raised about Mittens' true conservative bonafides, that could be a factor especially in Southern states.

      in Iowa because he peaked too late for Romney's super PAC to mount an effective negative attack. If Santorum is perceived as a threat, they will go after him the way they destroyed Newt.
