Romney's Power Point

An unfavorable assessment of Romney's 2008 Presidential bid from Powerline:

"Looking back, Romney's 2008 campaign seems truly dreadful. If I recall, he won only one primary (as opposed to caucus) and he won that one -- Michigan -- only because John McCain offered way too much straight talk about the future of the automobile industry."


I think there is one thing missing from this observation. Had the financial crisis hit during the primaries instead of the general election, I believe Romney would have won the GOP nomination and fared better than McCain in November if not winning the Presidency. McCain benefited from the Iraq War being the key issue and then was left punchless when the economy became the focus.
