After taking a drubbing from the favorite of the Evangelical Christian crowd out there, Rick Santorum, in both Minnesota and Missouri during the latest GOP primaries, Mitt Romney resorted to using his father's biography to play the part of the working class everyman out there who understands what it's like to struggle to get ahead.

It was a contrast to some of his prior speeches where they were all about his so-called experience as a business man and "job creator" and attacking President Obama with a string of lies he uses every time he opens his mouth.

If the Romney campaign thought that just carpet bombing states with tons of negative ads was going to win him the Republican presidential nomination, he might want to think again after what happened tonight. Santorum's wins make it pretty obvious that the "anyone but Mitt Romney" crowd among Republican primary voters is still pretty strong out there. The Christian Evangelicals hate him and don't trust him. And for all the money the Romney campaign has been spending, sometimes good old retail politics and getting out there and meeting voters as the Santorum campaign has been doing in the states that they've had time for, matters.

I am looking forward to seeing how the media spins tonight's results after they were very sure that Romney was the presumptive nominee a while back and would have been gliding to winning the nomination by now.
