Mitt Romney and Barack Obama spent yesterday jabbing back and forth at each other, with Romney on the stump in Pennsylvania and Obama calling for Romney to release more of his tax returns. Gee, I wonder where he got that idea from?

Reports have South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley on Romney’s short list as VP, which is somewhat counter to conventional wisdom that Romney would go with a “safe” pick.

Rick Santorum met with a group of conservative leaders in Virginia in what was described as “a late attempt to rally the right and block Mitt Romney’s nomination from becoming inevitable.”

    The North Dakota GOP railroaded the Caucus to give the majority of delegates to Romney even though he didn’t win the state on Super Tuesday.  They did this by only printing 25 names out of 101 delegate candidates and forcing you to write in a name if it wasn’t on the ballot.  Funny thing is the majority of the names on the list were committed Romney supporters.  When a woman spoke out on the issue the only response was ”
    ‘You weren’t on the committee, ma’am'”

    So now you have yet another state that disenfranchises the voters and rigs it for Romney.

    If you have a minute, read RCP’s piece on the path to 270 for both Romney and Obama. It’s really fascinating stuff.

    Obama had a very very bad week and Romney had a very very good one. 

    Obama steps in it with his off mic remarks on Russia, the govt. got its butt handed to them by their poor ability to defend the govt. position on the constitutionality of Obamacare, the President looked like he he didn’t understand or know Marbury vs. Madison, a federal judge makes the DOJ write a three page single spaced response on the role of the courts, and Obama gave a very bitter and angry speech that has little resemblance of the Hope and Change message four years ago. 

    Romney has effectively eliminated the ABRs in his pathway to the nomination, he gave a very very strong speech (economics 101) after his Tuesday hat-trick, and his focus has completely shifted to Obama and not the GOP chihuahuas nipping at his heels.

    I do not expect Mitt to go with a “safe” pick but do I expect he will go with a “smart” pick. One thing I have been impressed by with Team-Mitt is the fact that they have never panicked or acted impetuously throughout the trials and tribulations of this campaign. Romney’s campaign is serious minded and focused. I expect their vp selection would be no different.
