We covered a fair amount of ground over the weekend. Here’s a quick overview of what you may have missed.
On Sunday, we talked about:
* When it comes to job creation at Bain Capital, Mitt Romney and Mitt Romney’s campaign are making two very different claims.
* Jon Huntsman is looking forward to the eventual reemergence of “a sane Republican Party.” I’m fairly certain he’s not the only one.
* Romney seems to think elected office is only for the rich. That probably won’t help his “out-of-touch elitist” problem.
* George Stephanopoulos asked the question in a clumsy way, but pressing candidates on the right to privacy is worthwhile.
* In Rick Santorum’s mind, married couples shouldn’t necessarily be “married couples,” and the middle class shouldn’t necessarily be called the “middle class.”
* Saturday night’s debate in New Hampshire was supposed to be the debate in which the gloves came off. It wasn’t.
And on Saturday, we talked about:
* Whether Romney is a shameless flip-flopper is no longer open to debate. Whether it’s the right attack for his detractors is a different question.
* We’ve reached the point at which major-party presidential candidates accuse the president of hating America so frequently, we hardly notice anymore.
* Romney has a lot of victims from his private-sector experience, and they’re likely to keep haunting him.
* The anti-Romney contingent in the GOP need to coalesce around a single candidate. For Bill Kristol, that appears to be Santorum.
* In “This Week in God,” we talked about, among other things, TV preacher Pat Robertson’s belief that God told him directly who’ll win the 2012 presidential race.
* The “how many homes” issue isn’t one Romney seems comfortable dealing with.
