NH Union Leader Assesses Mitt Romney


Mitt RomneyAnd doesn’t like what it finds.

THERE IS A reason Mitt Romney has not received a single newspaper endorsement in New Hampshire. It’s the same reason his poll numbers are dropping. He has not been able to convince the people of this state that he’s the conservative he says he is.

Like a lot of people in New Hampshire, we wanted to believe Romney. We gave him the benefit of the doubt. We listened very carefully to his expertly rehearsed sales pitch. But in the end he didn’t close the deal for us. Now, two weeks before the primary, the same is happening with voters.

And the paper also adds this truism: “In this primary, the more Mitt Romney speaks, the less believable he becomes.” Nothing truer has ever been said.

Will New Hampshire voters reject Mitt Romney? Time will tell.

Update: Hot Air has more, including reaction from the Romney campaign. Meanwhile, Michelle focuses less on Romney and more on McCain.

Update 2: The San Diego Union-Tribune also has reservations about Mitt.

    Romney is clearly a skilled and proven leader. Romney’s success in his private career, as Governor of liberal Mass. In raising his 5 boys. It seems clear to me that Romney is the smart choice. In 8 out of the 10 past elections, the party who nominated their candidate first was the party to win the general election. Romney is the candidate who could win in Iowa and New Hampshire. If Romney won in Iowa and New Hampshire, Republicans might be able to get behind Romney while democrats fight it out between Clinton and Obama. The worst thing that could happen for Republicans would be to have to go to convention while the democrats have selected their candidate. The Democrats will be so far ahead of us in their campaign by the time we pick our nominee that the contest will already be over before it has started. We should nominate Mitt Romney and put everything we have behind the smart choice

    This man was likely an Elvis Impersinator earlier in his life. Nothing else can explain the slickness of his hair.
