Flip Romney's "Religion" Speech

I have read Flip Romney's speech today given at the Bush Library. It was a good speech as far as speech's go, but one that didn't need to be given IMO. I think his advisors hit the panic button after Huckabee's meteoric rise in the polls in Iowa. We'll know how good of a speech it was by seeing if it gives him any kind of poll bump in Iowa. Mitt is only at 12 to 13% in national polls, but he is "all in" on the first couple of primaries. If he doesn't win Iowa & New Hampshire, he might as well fold up his tent and go back to Massachusetts.

BTW, in case you're wondering, Hugh Hewitt thought the speech was great of course. Here is his money quote...
Mitt Romney's "Faith in America" speech was simply magnificent, and anyone who denies it is not to be trusted as an analyst.
LOL Hugh! Anyone who disagrees w/you is just un-American. Too funny. Hugh is a great contrary indicator. If he thinks it was great, there's a good chance real people either didn't like it or just don't care. I have a few clients like this and one in particular. I know when he puts on a trade that I'm almost guarunteed to win if I do the opposite of him.
