When Anyone But Mitt Romney Means Just That

November 28, 2011

Sunday morning I woke up to the news that The New Hampshire Union Leader was endorsing Newt Gingrich, a candidate who has undergone a surge, but is still far from electable. Later Sunday, Union Leader’s editorial page editor Andrew Cline twisted the knife a bit more in Romney’s side while a guest on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday.

During the appearance he said, “Electability is a factor, it’s one of many factors. But I don’t think you can look at this particular moment and conclude therefore that a year from now Mitt Romney would be more electable than Newt Gingrich.” Cline then described Romney as a ‘safe’ candidate that would be “perfect” for the job in the “late 19th century”.

The blows to Romney’s campaign didn’t end with there despite the fact that the endorsement represents tangible signs of a conservative movement that wants to elect anyone except him.  Today the newest DNC sponsored ads are allover the blogosphere turning up on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and other social networking platforms.

The ads, that pit Mitt Romney against Mitt Romney in previous campaigns (and occasionally of last week). The ads are well made and have linger just long enough to ensure that viewers understand that these aren’t simply misstatements, but instead show the biggest concern with his candidacy—that voters may never now the real Mitt Romney.
