    The last five primary/caucus contest were won by Romney, including huge margin wins in WA and AZ. The last five contests were AZ, MI, ME, WA and WY! I know the skeptics say MI was his home-state (which I don't buy that it's such a deal-makers, esp with Romney's opposition to the auto bailout which is popular in MI) and WY and ME are tiny states. Yet AZ, WA and MI have more delegates than CO, MS and MN and the media was reporting like gangbusters that Santorum has momentum and will win the election now!

    The mainstream media wants Santorum to win, because he is a weak general election candidate. That's why they hyped up the Santorum trifecta and downplay the Romney win streak!

    Simple.


    They want to face Santorum, whom Obama could actually beat.

    Because Rush LimpBalls has stolen the spotlight with his pig-headed, bigoted, myopic unibrowed comments about Sandra Fluke.

    Ever since rumors of a Romney/Paul collaboration leaked the media's been treating Romney more and more like Ron Paul.

    The MSM is very much as Jon Stewart has described: It's not a left wing thing or a right wing thing as much as it's a sensationalism thing. Whatever the brightest, shiniest object is in the landfill. But of course the winner hands down is always disaster porn.

    Because Romney is a

    Dedicated Mormon, Which is a Cult to Southern Baptist
    Undecided on abortion, equivalent to an abortion doctor to Pro-lifers
    Big Corporatist kind of guy, which is a jerk to the working man
    and he chose to run as a Republican, definitely a joke to conservatives.

    He could win as a Centrist Democrat, but no way in hell as a Conservative Republican.

    If only Romeny would stop trying to act like a conservative...but he can not do that until the generals because the base will abandon him!
