ot a good
Romney encounter with the media in Iowa. Retold
in more detail here. And this poll,
taken Dec 5 and 6( so some post-Speech views may be included) indicates a melt down for Romney in Iowa. One poll but maybe that is why The Speech had to be given.
UPDATE: The Boston press was no less aggressive with this
on the front page of the Boston Herald and a story
taking him to task for spending only 15 minutes interviewing Judge Tuttman during a time he was spending “weeks on end out of state ramping up his 2008 presidential bid.” I think the amount of time spent in an interview is not nearly as important as the vetting which staff is responsible for and whether in fact Judge Tuttman was the result of an affirmative action push. However, another story on Romney’s ambitions and political maneuvering is probably not what he wants to see on the front page of a Boston newspaper.
