Squeeze Play

If Team Reform was a DVD, Election Day 2004 would be on the Special Features flip side, in the Gag Reel/Bloopers section. Not because every challenging Republican put up by Willard Mitt went down to defeat. But because of this boast of political juice by Romney's $150,000-a-year Loathsome Spokesman: "(Willard Mitt) is the only bridge Massachusetts has to the White House and a strengthened Republican majority in both houses of Congress." (source: Boston Globe, 11/4/2004)

The only bridge to the Republican majority in both houses of Congress?

So why was Willard Mitt forced to ask George W. to name someone from Northeast to the panel that will recommend military base closings, because "each of the six people recommended by the Senate and House leaders hails from west of the Mississippi River. To address the current geographic imbalance, I urge you to include among your nominees at least one individual from the Northeast region of the country"? (source: Associated Press, 3/4/2005)

The only bridge to the White House?

Last week George W announced that his base closing panel would include two comissioners from California, one from Nevada, one from Virginia, one from Florida, one from Georgia, one from Illinois, one from Texas, and one from Utah. (source: Associated Press, 3/16/2005)

And no one from the Northeast.

Looks like Romney's juice has turned into sap.
