    Romney has trouble distinguishing “frontrunner” from “weak frontrunner”

    Romney has trouble distinguishing “frontrunner” from “weak frontrunner”

    Mitt Romney is a weak frontrunner, anyone who thinks otherwise is not being realistic.

    But he is the frontrunner.

    Yet Romney seems not to be able to distinguish the two. And that is part of the reason why he is a “weak” frontrunner.

    But to argue than any other candidate would be “strong” is also not being realistic. Romney is weak only in the sense that there are plenty of voters that would prefer someone else. And yet, each of those someone elses are even weaker in that they have not garnered the delegate count that Romney has.

    As I have argued since before the first primary, back when Perry, Cain, Bachmann, and Huntsman were still in the race, all our candidates had significant flaws – and they still do. To try and plant some kind of moral victory by declaring Romney a “weak” frontrunner necessarily ignores the fact that Santorum is a “weak” chaser, and Gingrich is a “weak” also ran.

    Said differently, the ire this site (and many others) has held towards Romney is misplaced. For it is not Romney that is to blame for his “weak” frontrunner position, but all those who have voted for him. In fact, that ire could be best directed at the candidate you chose to invest in, for it is he/she that has proven to be even weaker than Romney at convincing folks to support their campaign.

    Just being realistic…

    I will be voting for Romney in tomorrows Mississippi primary.

    Its hard to get a feel for how it will go. But, suffice to say I have seen absolutely zero Romney signs over the past two weeks while its about an even split between Newt and Santorum.

    Here is a new video on Newt’s website that should be of interest.

    Romney sounds like an airline pilot giving an announcement, “Right now we are climbing to 32 thousand feet and we’ll be over the great plains of Nebraska for the next 2 hours. Weather in Colorado is becoming windy but spring like hot air should bring us into a nice glide towards the Denver airport.”

    The captain has turned off the seatbelt sign so feel free to walk about and you know, dont hide out in the restroom too long or hehe we might have to smoke ya out, LOL. And heres a big 10-20 for those US marshalls in row 23.
