Mitt Romney might finally be treated like an undisputed front-runner. After a weekend in which his religion was called into question and a month that’s seen him surge ahead of Obama in projected general-election polls, his once-powerful rival Rick Perry has released a dramatic attack-ad on the albatross Romney continues to carry around: Romneycare.
It’s well-made, and makes some dramatic points using Romney’s own soundbites. However, conservatives seem resigned to an acceptance of Romney’s imperfections. Romneycare’s been a liability for Mitt this whole time; will this attack be effective this time?
At the same time, the Democratic National Committee has launched WhichMitt.com, a quiz-based website intended to highlight Romney’s perceived flip-flops. This is a familiar line of attack, and it’s not the first time that national-level Democrats have singled Romney out of the GOP field for attack. In advance of tomorrow’s debate, however, it continues to feel like Mitt’s the man to beat.
And if you’re in the mood for laughs, SNL had a great treatment of the media’s obsession with finding a “better” candidate than Romney over the weekend.
