My "The Campaign of the Century" has just been re-issued in print and as e-book. Email: email@example.com.
10:30 Romney 38%, Paul 24%, Huntsman 17%, Gingrich & Santorum battle for 4th with 10% (that’s with 70% reporting).
10:10 Wonder if Newt’s subdued speech signals he will NOT run those Bain ads–since they flopped in NH.
10:05 I’m sure the late lefty, Harry Chapin, would not be pleased to hear "Cat’s in the Cradle" playing in Santorum HQ…. earlier they played Peter Tosh’s "Get Up Stand Up." Blasphemy.
9:45 Mary Matalin on CNN: Romney now the champ of "moral capitalism." Attacks on him for Bain were a "sacrilege."…. Bachmann leading Cain 88 votes to 48, Fox tells us.
9:20 Anyone on TV mentioned yet–exploding their hype–that far fewer apparently voted in GOP primary today vs. 2008?
9:05 Ron Paul, who won Libertarian primary in a landslide, speaking. Crowd raucous. Paul hitting usual themes, including sending youth overseas to die. Cut "military-industrial complex," not defense proper. Get out of Afghanistan. Indeed, exit polls show he got a large share of young vote… More good news for Romney: Paul going to S. Carolina and buys ads hitting Newt and Santorum. Also Huntsman going there. So Romney more likely to beat divided field. Another race for 2nd?
8:50 Lawrence O’Donnell defends "European socialism." … Fun video clip of the epic John Sununu interview.
8:40 Old pal David Corn tweets on Romney: "Short speech full of conservative cliches. Hollow, shallow–and probably effective. On to the sophisticated GOP voters of South Carolina!" … Huntsman seems to be staying in race.
8:30 Romney gets to make victory speech by 8:30. Mitt says he’s "going back to work" tomorrow — not many others in USA can say that… Well, he won’t be able to poke fun at Obama for using teleprompter. … Slams slams by other GOPers in recent days–the "resentment of success." Also: "Obama wants to turn America into a European socialist welfare state."
