#1 I really liked the editorial, and I got all the way to the end before I noticed why - Krauthammer.

#2 Romney is saying the right things to many of the right people. In regards to his comments about the Olympics; I don't think it is as big a foul up as the press would have everyone believe. After all Romney should know something about the Olympics and security. As it turned out later, to my understanding, the Brits agreed that they weren't quite ready. Our city hosted a World's Fair in the early 80's. They were putting on final touches, building things, painting, etc. even after the opening day.

#3 Romney's comments on the Israelis vs Paleo Death Cult are spot-on. Remember the Gaza hothouses they left behind? If you aren't inflaming the Paleo sensitivities, you aren't saying the truth.

#4 Press has been vile in their coverage. No mention of how popular he was in Israel, just comments on how unhappy the Palestinians are with his speach. Totally misrepresenting his comments on the Olympics.
I believe the press knew the Olympics were going to be a big plus for Romney so they are doing everything they can to besmirch him now to counter that.
They will attack his VP choice as badly as they did Palin until something sticks even if it is not true.
They will be totally vile during the republican national convention sending in protestors and shock troops (which will probably help the Republicans).
After the convention they'll probably have a ton of stories of people who were laid off from Bain capital or who claim to have been harrassed or something by Romney (or he VP since few would believe it of Romney).
This has only just started.
