Let’s be perfectly honest here: Mitt Romney is a businessman and, on top of that, he has a Master of the Universe view of himself, and when he spends millions of his own dollars and he still can’t buy a thrill from the electorate, he’s going to be bitter at the fools who refuse to buy what he’s selling . . . .
Under normal circumstances I would say that Romney would be playing for a tie, in this case a brokered convention, where he undoubtedly believes that he could attempt to convince the powers that be (as opposed to the stupid fucking yokels who vote in primaries) that he is the man. But even the powers that be have to see that the more people see of Romney, the less they like him. That’s not the message that every dollar of his campaign has set out to sell, but that’s the one that’s being received.
