It’s this attitude that reminds me of Romney’s inability to ever support his constituency…

Remember this from October 2007?

We should never forget these things when dealing with Willard.

Newt’s dropping out on May 1st…

…according to CNN. It’s expected he will formally endorse Romney on that day as well.

Having come up very low in the five primaries yesterday, Mitt is looking at no more money to survive with and no viable reason to stay in the race (even though he promised not to pull out before the convention.

According to CNN, Gingrich is likely to hold his final campaign event Tuesday in Washington, D.C., where he will make the announcement surrounded by his family and supporters.

Quote of the Day – Repub’s View of Romney Strategy

“It seems like Republican primary voters will not vote for Mitt Romney unless they are forced into it. And the way they’re forced into it is when he beats the other guy senseless.”

– Nelson Warfield, Republican strategist

Of course, when there are none of them left, he’ll have to actually come up with a real policy plan.

As usual, Mitt will do ANYTHING whether he believes in it or not.  Thanks, Moe.

Whatever Works

The Mormon Church has  always opposed gambling in every form, including government-sponsored  lotteries.

Mormon  prophets and leaders have counseled the members over time, to  avoid gambling of any type. Doing so, leads one away from righteousness and  into the hands of Satan. The Mormon belief is that it is an addictive behavior and leads only to destructive habits and  practices. It undermines the value of work and motivates one to think that they  can get something for nothing. In time, the gambler will deny themselves, as  well as their family the basic needs of life. They will oft times steal from  others to finance their addiction, which in turn leads to stealing, robbery,  etc.

Of course, we also hear from Romney this morning…

… and he isn’t thrilled:

Why is this man smiling?

“As president, my plan would have produced a budget that was cut, capped and balanced – not one that opens the door to higher taxes and puts defense cuts on the table. President Obama’s leadership failure has pushed the economy to the brink at the eleventh hour and 59th minute. While I appreciate the extraordinarily difficult situation President Obama’s lack of leadership has placed Republican Members of Congress in, I personally cannot support this deal.”

– Mitt Romney, Republican Presidential Candidate

“Extraordinarily difficult situation” that Republicans have been placed in? Perhaps he doesn’t realize that the Republicans WON here. Then again, maybe his old Massachusetts liberalism is coming out.

Anderson Cooper Grills Rich Iott on his Nazi Dressup…

Have you been following this? John and I discussed it on the radio show last Friday. Ohio Congressional candidate Rich Iott has a rather unusual hobby of dressing up as a member of the 5th SS Wiking Panzer Division, a unit in the German army during World War II.

Interviewing him, Anderson Cooper got Iott to state really unfortunate excuses for his activities. Cooper pointed out that one member of the 5th was recently charged with the murder of 58 Jews. Iott replied: “The war on the eastern front was extremely brutal on both sides. Nobody was lily-white, that’s for sure. Horrible things that happened on both sides.”

Iott has been scrubbed from the Republicans‘ Young Guns website since revelations about his reenacting surfaced.

Thanks to Talking Points Memo.

Here’s why Harold Ford won’t be on Morning Joe for a while…

Harold Ford Jr.’s role as an NBC political analyst has been “put on hold.”
Politico’s Michael Calderone reports that, according to an MSNBC spokesperson, Ford’s NBC contract “was put on hold” weeks ago. His appearances on the network are now in the capacity of potential political candidate.

Harold Ford
Ford is mulling a run for Senator against Kirsten Gillibrand in New York.
“Now I’ve taken a 45-day unpaid leave of absence from my job at Merrill Lynch,” he said recently. “It’s not right to draw a salary when I’m out every day campaigning. Fortunately, I’ve still got a little NYU teaching job and some MSNBC, so for a while I think I can put food on the table.”
Ford will appear on the “Meet the Press” roundtable this Sunday, along with David Brooks, Rachel Maddow, and Republican freshman congressman Aaron Schock.

UPDATE: A spokesman for Ford told the New York Observer that he asked for the time off from MSNBC:

“Harold Ford asked for the leave of absence from NBC as a paid analyst while he weighs a run for the U.S Senate. Consistent with that, he also asked for an unpaid leave of absence from Bank of America/Merrill Lynch while he travels the state, listens to voters and weighs an opportunity to serve them in the Senate.”
