I have written before that each time the Republicans look like they are on the ropes, Team Obama gives them a political gift. And vice versa.
Tonight was the vice versa. Thanks to Rick Santorum, the life of the still-likely Republican nominee just got a bit more miserable. And the chances that the still-likely Republican nominee will come out of the Republican primary and caucus contest looking bruised and bloodied just increased.
Before Team Romney says it, yes, we know it is about the delegates. But it is also about perceptions. And the inescapable perception is that Mitt Romney has political feet of clay. Pretending otherwise makes no sense whatsoever.
It’s going to take a stout heart to be a Republican this year. 8.3% unemployment plagues the land, and yet, the GOP seems determined to help Barack Obama get a second term.
