Halperin: Romney's 'safe, generic' Iowa campaign leads him to top of poll

12/30/11 04:43PM

Mark Halperin, Time Magazine: "Mitt Romney is running a low-risk campaign. He is doing some interviews, but his stump speech…is about the Olympics. He recites lyrics from patriotic songs; he talks about the president and the economy, but otherwise we’re not talking about policy. He's not playing for the Tea Party crowd or the social conservative crowd in any way. He's running a very safe, generic campaign right now, and I think it's put him in a commanding position. And the other candidates seem to be more interested in fighting each other than taking on Mitt Romney." read more

12/29/11 12:51PM

2012 GOP candidate Rick Santorum: “I’ve been through this before. I’ve been in very tough races in Pennsylvania…I’ve been scrubbed and scoured, and people know if there’s anything out there, it’s out there. And that’s a good thing. There’s no surprises, and I’ve got a strong, consistent conservative record. I’ve been married one time with seven children. I live a pretty boring life except for the fact we have seven children. That keeps us pretty busy. But there’s really authenticity here that’s gonna go out there and fight the battles and be the sharp contrast to Barack Obama. read more

Must Read Op-Eds for Wednesday, December 28, 2011

12/28/11 10:04AM

KEVIN WARNS REPUBLICANSBY MAUREEN DOWDNEW YORK TIMESThe Tea Party has many strong points: fiscal sanity, orderly demonstrations and a penchant for cleanliness that the Occupy Wall Street group should try to emulate. But they must understand they are part of the Republican defense against the president. ... A lot is at stake in the next election: the Supreme Court, federal regulations on business, the American way of life. We should look at Europe (which the president so greatly admires) and ask if we want that to happen to us. In five years, it will be too late. read more
