Mitt’s ‘America the Beautiful’ Moment

A confident Mitt Romney sings “America the Beautiful,” and very recently Obama riffed on Al Green.

More and more polls show two things: (1) tonight Mitt Romney will win Florida and (2) Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum will combined get more votes. – Erick Erickson

There’s absolutely no reason Newt or Rick Santorum should get out after Florida.

Some delegate math: After tonight, just 115 delegates will have been awarded — out of 2,286 total delegates. So just 5% – Mike Murray, NBC News tweet

Neither the flaming Democratic rich man hyperbole about Mitt Romney or the Republican flailing to find a message against Obama, means a thing this far out.

We’ll still likely be left choosing between a gazillionaire and a millionaire, both backed by corporations and Wall Street, which is the contest fitting where American politics stands today.

It’s why Occupy remains the wild card worth watching. Obama can benefit from it, as it nails Mitt Romney if he’s seen through that lens. However, if Romney figures out how to harness the message and use it to market himself as a turn-around expert, you never know what can be sold to the American voter out of options.

    Limbaugh has spent the first break on his show talking about his vote in Florida, the lone Repulbican celebrity in FL & how everyone is lambasting him on who he’s supposedly supporting (he hasn’t said).

    One thing that worked against Gingrich in Florida was early voting.  Many people had already made up their minds before South Carolina was decided.  I guess that could be a good thing depending on how you look at it;  maybe people are voting for who they think is the best candidate rather than who is the perceived front runner.  Or maybe they just wanted to get it over with.
