Mitt Romney at Daytona 500. Shouldn't he be in Michigan? (Like Prince Charles holding a hot dog...)

Mitt Romney was at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday to attend the Daytona 500. Rain postponed the race, so he didn’t get to see NASCAR racers charging around the famous Daytona oval, turning only to the left. (No Massachusetts Moderate jokes, please.)

But here’s our question: What was he doing in Florida, when there’s a make-or-break primary in two days at the other end of I-75, in Michigan? Shouldn’t he have been campaigning in, say, Marquette?


OK, his Daytona walk-around itself was yet another example of Mr. Romney’s inimitable stiff bonhomie. When he mixes with regular voters, he reminds us of nothing so much as Prince Charles holding a hot dog: He knows he’s supposed to enjoy it, but he doesn’t really know where to start.

A liberal,a moderate and a conservative walk into a bar.
The bartender looks up and says,”Hey Mitt,long time-no see.”

New polling has Willard freaking out in Daytona.."for Pete's sake, why does Santorum have a car in this race??!!"

•Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum tops Obama 50%-45% in the swing states. Nationwide, Santorum’s lead narrows to 49%-46%.


Bye-bye Obama & Obama-lite, hello eight years of conservative government control again.

Let's not blow it this time.

It would be poetic for Tony Raines to come from the back and win the 500. If there’s any race where a driver can do it, its in a plate race.

Between those in attendance and those watching on TV, I’m sure he had more exposier to MI voters than he would have had in Marquette.

Prince Charles is royalty. He shouldn't be expected to hold his own hot dog.
