HE OUGHT TO GET A REFUND...:

Mitt Romney Down For The Count? (Thomas Edsall, 12/29/07, Real Clear Politics)

From a purely business point of view the past four weeks have marked an extraordinary setback for the Romney campaign.

Since January 1, 2007, the former Massachusetts governor has spent well in excess of $80 million, including at least $17.4 million of his own money, paying media fees in excess of $30 million, salaries of roughly $16 million, and consulting payments of more than $15 million.


...from whoever told him it made good political sense for a Mormon to put so many eggs in Iowa's Evangelical basket. NH should have been his big bet.

The stupidity of campaign consultants is surpassed only by that of the candidates who listen to them.

A relatively well informed laymen could tell you that Rudy and Mitt never had a chance. OTOH, if both of them had run as Democrats, they could actually have had a shot.

Such is the lack of creativity in the political realm. Stupidity is bi-partisan.
