Can Romney Win And Still Lose?
“Mitt Romney has had a couple of bad days in the aftermath of, what I thought was a good debate this weekend,” began Hannity,” He’s absorbing a lot of blows but I truly believe that in June we won’t be talking about any of this and we’ll be focused on Obama.” Hannity continued, “Romney is up to a double digit lead in New Hampshire and, if Romney wins by the margin he’s expected to win by, he’ll remain the front runner for the nomination.” According to RealClearPolitics.com, he seems to be leading by over twenty points. “Romney will be headed into South Carolina up two to zero,” offered Hannity. So, the question as it seems to be developing in New Hampshire is not if Romney will win but by how much. This begs the question; can Romney still win but lose? How much does Romney need to win by since the expectations are set so high. Romney’s chief opponent, Newt Gingrich, made headlines whe n he set the bar high? "The biggest story today is going to be how much Governor Romney falls short of any kind of reasonable expectation because he's been living here, literally bought a house, was the governor next door for years," explained Hannity. The battles wage on but Governor Romney does seem to be in the lead. For more on New Hampshire's battle, click here.
Senator Jim DeMint: Now or Never
South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint joined the show to discuss his new book, “Now or Never” which details what we have to do as Americans to fix our country. “You’ve spent time laying out problems and solutions,” began Hannity, “Today’s parents fear more often that there won’t be any American dream for their children, it really is that dire.” “Absolutely,” agreed DeMint, “This country belongs to the people and it’s our job to change things because we can’t continue on this path for another four years.” DeMint continued, “The principles that this country was founded on are working but not as well as they ought to be.” When pressed on the primary in his own state, DeMint offered, “Republicans are going to unite and I think we’ll know in a month or so who our candidate is going to be but I’m optimistic about the election.” For more on Senator DeMin t’s new book, “Now or Never”, click here.
Senator John McCain
Former presidential candidate John McCain joined Sean to discuss his endorsement of Mitt Romney and the overall process of running for president. “I understand jobs and the economy are key issues in this campaign,” began McCain, “But I’ve got to tell you that the President’s national security policies and his huge cuts in our defense spending are concerns of mine.” “You and Governor Romney went at it in 2008,” asked Sean, “Things were heated back in the day, do you think there will be any fallout after the primaries are over?” “I’d like to point out that President Reagan and President Bush had one of the most contentious primaries you’ll ever see and President Reagan then chose him as his Vice-Presidential candidate,” reminded McCain, “No one campaigned harder for me than Governor Romney.”
