Mitt Romney’s worst enemy

Update: This is an instant classic Iowahawk parody. Still wiping the tears from my eyes…


Sometimes, a candidate’s worst enemy isn’t his most staunch opponent, but his most overzealous fan. Mitt Romney’s speech was welcome and well-delivered. But come on:

Mitt Romney’s “Faith in America” speech was simply magnificent, and anyone who denies it is not to be trusted as an analyst.


Mitt Romney threw a long ball today and scored. There can be no objective argument against that conclusion. Why? Because Romney is running for the GOP nomination, and his remarks, both in delivery and substance, were lavishly praised by Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Medved, and James Dobson, not to mention Mark Steyn, Fred Barnes and Charles Krauthammer -and these were just the seven people I heard on a long drive south to San Diego and then in a hotel room before leaving to post this and give a speech…

Here are seven of the most influential conservative commentators in the U.S., and their opinions on the Romney success are all aligned with mine. Thus, objectively, the speech cannot be judged as other than an extraordinary success for Romney.

Allah and the Hot Air crew are having an objectively great field day over this embarrassing public display of Mitt affection.

Some deep breaths are in order, methinks.

Bryan gets in the quip of the day: “I liked Romney’s speech quite a bit, but Hugh is making out like it was the St. Crispin’s Day speech as delivered by Winston Churchill in the Sistine Chapel on the first Christmas with Nazi bombers overhead.”

A quintuple snorter.
