Editor’s note: Well, to be specific, Romney handily won the Florida primary against Newt. But a Romney win is an Obama win, because: (1) Romney is becoming a shoe-in for the GOP nomination (Virginia is up next) against Obama; and (2) Newt greased the skids for Obama’s campaign strategy against Romney (AKA a “Wall St. Fat Cat with Swiss Bank Accounts”). So does that mean Obama is the best president? No; he’s just the best of this bunch. And the “story behind the story”: the GOP shot itself in the proverbial foot (again), thanks to the recalcitrant (and nasty) ideologues. Time to focus on Congress instead. Or go on vacation and forget politics.
“With Mitt Romney’s win in Florida tonight, he has won all of the state’s 50 delegates – although there is some chance the outcome could be disputed because Florida’s winner-take-all allocation is technically in violation of Republican party rules,” the New York Times is reporting.
“But assume that the outcome holds, and that Mr. Romney also wins Virginia on Mar. 6, where only he and Ron Paul are on the ballot. Virginia awards all of its delegates to the winner if he or she gets at least 50 percent of the vote. By definition, the winner in a two-way race will have at least 50 percent of the vote, and the winner is likely to be Mr. Romney in a head-to-head contest against Mr. Paul.”
