Still Coming Up MittensComments
Obviously, I’m not changing my mind about the direction of the race after a Romney sweep.
Michigan does make me understand why some people are stubborn about seeing a race here; I was skeptical of Romney for too long myself. Given the mismatch of resources, it’s not an impressive win. But the fundamental truth is that you can’t beat even a weak candidate with nothing, and Romney is lucky enough to be facing only marginally less maladroit (Santorum) or actively worse (Newt) candidates who also can’t touch his financial and organizational resources. Santorum and even Newt might get some wins on Super Tuesday, but it will just be delaying the, er, inevitable.
It will be refreshing to have a Republican candidate proposing to help out ordinary Americans by abolishing taxes on multimillion dollar inheritances.
