Romney's appearance on Letterman's show as pretty amusing. It shows a nice sense of humor and the guy looked pretty handsome. But that is not the story of the day. The story of the day is PAC money unleashed to savage Newt. Once Romney was actually threatened, the dogs came out. And this is against a Republican. Wait till the real election, when that unlimited money starts to flow. We're going to see the ugliest election in years.
Romney was smiling it up for Letterman, but behind the scene he's hot under the collar and that smile has been turned upside down. (Of course, if you had just spent the last 5 or 6 years running for President only to have Newt face you in a few weeks - you would do the same thing).
The Tea Party continued it's single-handed attempt to re-elect President Obama by yanking John Boehner's chain. The nasty human lap dog needed only to know how high to jump. Even if it meant hosing Senate Republicans and making himself look that like an idiot.
So, what's next? I don't know. But I am sure it will be stunning.
Worse yet - after mangling various portions of his Presidency by either ignoring Republican's completely or by kowtowing to the Tea Party Republicans - Obama is now campaigning. Something he has proven extremely capable at doing.
I am not the biggest fan of the job Obama has done, but if the stock market is higher in October than it is right now and the employment rate is better - in the face of 18 months of likely Republican obstructionism - the GOP will be rightly punished.
Then may be we will get grown-ups back in control of the GOP.
