Everywhere I turn its Mitt Mitt Mitt

OK so much Romney coverage so little time... Romney campaigned for Dallas County Sheriff candidate Chad Leonard yesterday afternoon and then had a Christmas Party for supporters in the evening.

While the AP focuses on his support for how Dubya has carried out the war...

"Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said he supports the way President George W. Bush has carried out the war in Iraq. But Romney is declining to discuss whether more troops should be sent."

Tom Beaumont takes a stab at the Romney topic du jour- gay marriage. Romney said...

"I feel very strongly that we should preserve traditional marriage and at the same time preserve our heritage of respect for people who make different choices in their life," said Romney, governor of the only state to have legalized gay marriage. "I know there are some people who would say, 'Your position is inconsistent,' but I don't believe it is."

Meanwhile on the left coast, the Washington Post has a feature story on Romney's journey to the right and is makes note of Romney's opposition to Reagan administration policies.

"Twelve years ago, Romney boasted that he would be more effective in fighting discrimination against gay men and lesbians than Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.), distanced himself from some conservative policies of the Reagan administration, and proudly recalled his family's record in support of abortion rights."

With regards to the Post, the plus side for Romney is that he's dealing with this in December 2006 not December 2007. The minus though is that the problem isn't seeming to go away. It was two weeks ago now that the letter to the log cabin Republicans broke and the Washington Post is still doing stories on it. The reason? New quotes keep coming up. Romney needs to take full stock of the opposition research he has on himself and dump it out now. If new quotes continue to trickle out every day for the next few months. Well, then it's going to be a long few months for the Govnah.

Romney is not going to be a candidate anymore by Fall 2007. His candidacy is going up in a puff of smoke that will leave little more than a faint odor of dead, rotting, aborted babies behind.

Um ... Paul S.... looks unlikely. Sorry to burst your bubble before Christmas. I hope you get something else in your stocking to make up for it. Maybe a McCain is McLame button????

Romney's hopes are vanishing right before his two pretty faces.

Even the quote-spinners he's hired to downplay the issue are unable to wash away the stain of the socially liberal statements he spouted to get elected - or that he may very well truly still believe.
