Bill Kristol takes
Mitt Romney to task. Kristol, one of the very first analysts to
see real potential in Rick Santorum, has good political sense. Four
years ago, he was probably the first serious writer to start
suggesting that Sarah Palin would energize conservatives if John
McCain picked her as veep (months before the selection was made).
Whatever one thinks of Palin, Kristol’s analysis about her effect
on the conservative grassroots was right on target. Other examples
abound. As a pure political analyst, Kristol is usually ahead of
the curve. And I think he’s on to something here when he says that
Romney’s attacks on Santorum so far are falling flat.
