Played you like a fiddle



Things were going so well for ole Mitt.

Got rid of Perry and Bachman.

Carpet bombed Gingrich in Florida.

And remarkably, just when Santorum had three states come up on a level field, magically, Santorum gets a nonsensical issue of

religious intolerance to letting people decide on their own if they want birth control.

Santorum gets a lift.

Santorum now tied with or ahead of Romney in three polls;

FOX http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/02/10/fox-news-poll-santorum-surges-nationally-after-three-state-sweep/
(which also shows Obama's positive's going up)

Now Romney is faced with a do or die performance in his home state of Michigan where a loss would most likely end any real chance for getting the nomination.



Now among those that don't get it is the Donald





Rick Santorum was a sitting senator who, in re-election, lost by 19 points, Trump said. To my knowledge the most in the history of this country for a sitting senator to lose by 19 points. Its unheard of. Then he goes out and says, Oh, okay, I just lost by the biggest margin in history, now Im going to run for President. Tell me, how does that work? How does that work?



Well Donald just like you were played like a fiddle at the National Press Club dinner, Mitt is now being played.

I wonder how long it will take Mitt Romney to figure out that he was just played like a fiddle. Just at the point where Mitt was going to have to face Santorum on a one on one even playing field the White House hands Santorum a momentary chew toy.

Now I know that some get irritated by the idea that this was great chess playing.

So I am not going to say it. Just amazing how lucky Barack Obama is.

By the way, how do you like that fiddle playing?
