Tom Degan: It must be a terribly frustrating thing to be Mitt Romney these days. Were he to be elected president (and that’s never gonna happen, I promise you) he would be an unerringly reliable water boy for the plutocracy.
Victoria DeFrancesco Soto: Their rejection of Romney is so strong that Somos Republicans have instructed their membership to write in Ronald Reagan for President if Romney wins the GOP nomination.
Berry Craig: I’m not against Romney just because he was born on third base and thinks he hit a triple. Likewise, it makes no sense for any union member to vote for Santorum just because his grandfather was a coal miner.
John Peeler: The Republican primary electorate is predominantly reactionary, far-right-wing, on both economic and social issues, so it should not be so surprising that they are warming to Santorum.
Tina Dupuy: Part of being a Democrat is acting like you’re losing even when you’re winning. Part of being a Republican is acting like you’re winning even when you’re losing.
Brent Budowsky: Here come the Romney attack ads against Santorum in Michigan, the vulture politics of the vulture capitalist who sets new standards of negative campaigning!
Brent Budowsky: The Hope America Fails Republicans cannot handle the truth that the auto policy worked wonders. The Republicans can’t handle the truth, because they are so negative that what is good for America is bad for Republicans!
Devin Griggs: His presidential hopes dashed by a “kinder, gentler” approach to hot-button social issues, Daniels has now joined the ranks of scab governors Scott Walker, Chris Christie, and Jan Brewer.
Dave Blake: What really bugs me is Romney going out of his way to quote Tom Paine, the most radical of the American revolutionary pamphleteers. Isn’t distorting Jesus enough for him? Is he going after Marx next?
Derrick N. Ashong: the GOP field has managed to maintain a unified position in one key issue: Big Government. It’s big, it’s bad and it’s coming to get you.
Brent Budowsky: If George Romney were here today, Mitt Romney would probably be calling him a European socialist, while George Romney would probably be supporting the auto policies of Obama and possibly endorsing Obama for reelection.
Robert Reich: Never before in the history of American politics has a single couple given more money to a single candidate and had a bigger impact than Sheldon Adelson and his wife – all courtesy of the Supreme Court and its grotesque decisions that speech is money.
Ted Vaill: Republican operatives will work hard to undercut Mitt in the weeks and months ahead, so that Romney will be their nominee, in spite of his Bain baggage.
