Mitt’s Speechwriters Are Busy

Betcha I can name at least one person (other than bloggers suffering through a painfully slow news week) who is praying the Supreme Court delivers its ObamaCare decision tomorrow: Mitt Romney. He could use a major media distraction from his speech to the National Association of Latino Elected Officials, due at noon tomorrow. Last time Mitt spoke to a Latino group–the business organization called the Latino Coalition, last month–he didn’t even mention immigration. Don’t believe he’ll be able to do that tomorrow.
