Romney breaks away from Republican field

  • ALL ROMNEY: Screen shot of Washington Post home page this morning.

Notwithstanding Rick Perry's Arkansas regiment, commanded by Col. David Sanders, it's starting to look like a runaway for Mitt Romney. I judge by coverage of mainstream media coverage this morning of last night's debate. Washington Post, above, is typical.

Talking Points Memo had a good summary of last night's event, plus this observation:

The average low-information voter isn't going to be exposed to any account of this debate that includes this necessary corrective: The prescription for economic recovery offered by the Republican presidential field is completely divorced from reality.

Factcheck weighs in here.

PS — Somebody noted that, at this moment four years ago, Hillary Rodham Clinton was viewed as the inevitable Democratic nominee.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
