So last night did present us with any knock out punches, but the debate was a great reminder that Gov. Romney is ready to go toe to toe with Pres. Obama. Rick Santorum was in “confessional mode,” Newt was back to his old jolly self, and Ron Paul seemed to be in good spirits. Gov. Romney, however, looked down right Presidential. There’s a reason for this. He’s going to be the next President of the United States. Here are a few morning-after articles you may have missed:
The New York Daily News has a column by Andrea Tantaros titled “Romney Shines With Solid, Passionate Performance.”
When he was attacked by former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum for his stance on healthcare in Massachusetts, he retaliated by forcing Santorum to defend his support for former Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter – a conservative villain who later defected to the Democratic Party – over conservative stalwart Sen. Pat Toomey. While Santorum offered an explanation, it is likely to rub the right the wrong way and remind them of his bungle over “Benedict Arlen.”
Mitt Romney stands alone among the Republican primary field as the candidate capable of winning the White House, and more importantly, of leading the nation to a prosperous future.
And, if you like Gov. Romney, you’ll definitely enjoy this Ann Coulter piece. Particularly this line: (h/t James)
Meanwhile, Romney cheerfully campaigns on, the biggest outsider and most conservative candidate we’ve run for president since Reagan, while being denounced by the Establishment as “too Establishment.”
And I’ve saved the best for last. Future First Lady Ann Romney joined Pinterest! On her page, you’ll find recipes for banana bread, granola cups, and dipped strawberries.
I hope you are all doing well in this crazy campaigning season. I have found that Monday’s fast has been very helpful in clarifying what’s important and who’s in control of this (and all things). If you are praying, pray specifically for Michigan, Arizona, and Super Tuesday!
