Skip to comments.Mitt Romney Returns to South Carolina (smells like scotch and valium)

A crowd of about 40 in a hot warehouse stacked with plumbing supplies cheered when he said it was time for politicians to spend less time thinking about getting re-elected and more time on "thinking about how to get the country on the right track and put Americans back to work."

40 in a warehouse is a ‘crowd’?
A "crowd" of 40???
I guarantee you that Sarah would pull in 100 times that many folks, just showing up unannounced.
40 ? That ain’t enough to polish his... ego.
40 = Baa-whoosh, kind of fitting for a plumbing warehouse in an around the bowl and down the hole kind of way :^)
And that was AFTER they put the FREE BEER sign on the side of the building.....
He’ll be funded and polled as a contender until the bitter end. Facts not withstanding.
Romney has no idea of the consequences of his antics.
GOP voters arent drooling morons.
He’s in the wrong party.
Romney, who spent the entire second half of his one term in political office launching his run for president? (And has been running ever since.)
Heck, between Todd, the kids, the grandkid, the ‘rents(who seem to be around quite a bit) she already has a dozen or so.
This is a huge problem with Romney. He’ll be drawing 40 here, 25 there, 50 there, 100 there. Meanwhile, Obama will be having 30,000 here, 50,000 there, doing outdoor rallies just like 2008 in parks and stuadium and wherever else.
The comparisons will not be good.
When he was here in Colorado, Romney’s appearance in Denver drew a small handful of people. Within a day or so of Mitt’s visit, I saw in the paper where Ron Paul had visited, too. He was greeted by a full ballroom.
I’m not a Paul supporter, but I did notice the difference between numbers at the time. I also recall that the weather for the Paul visit was much worse - lots of snow.
Romney never seems to draw much of a crowd. He lies like a rug and is bereft of a noticeable personality, it’s no wonder, so no surprise.
Oh, and, this is just my opinion, but I think that if Huntsman enters the race as expected, it’ll sink both him and Romney.
There are too many Southern Christians who don’t want to vote for a Mormon. Seeing two in the race is apt to turn them against both of them entirely.
I lived in the South for a long time. Mormons are usually politely tolerated, but that’s about it.
Our family has a friend who manages a very large bookstore. Sarah Palin visited and signed books in his store during her first book tour.
He (our friend) told us that the lines went all the way around the building and doubled back. It was cold at the time, and no one seemed to mind at all.
On the other hand, the weather SC was probably pretty nice today... the forecast was for the low/mid 80’s...
and all Mitt Romney could muster was 40 people.
40 in a warehouse is a crowd?
40 Mormons support Romney. HOLD THE PRESSES.
Romney is pro-Obama, pro-Obamacare, pro-TARP, pro-IAG.
Like his buddy in the White Hut. Perhaps we should call him Rombama...
