The Campaign Spot

He’s Making a List, and Checking It Twice…

MSNBC describes what they’re calling “Romney’s (Almost) Dean Scream Speech.”

Funny enough, when Romney was wrapping up his remarks, he said the following: “You’re going to do something which people don’t expect, which is give me a victory. And then I’m going to New Hampshire, where I’m pretty solidly in the lead in New Hampshire, and then I’m going to be in Nevada, and I’m going to win Nevada, and then I’m going to be in Wyoming, and I’ll win that one, and then Michigan, and we’re going to end up doing real darn well. That’s at least what I plan. Brian over here was afraid I was going to scream as I was saying that — the Howard Dean moment, but I’m not doing that. No predictions like that, no screaming allowed…. I’m going to find you, track you down, make sure you vote in the caucuses.”

Anybody seen video? I don’t know if I believe Mitt Romney is capable of screaming like Howard Dean…
The last line is what stood out for me, even though I’m sure he delivered it humorously. Sorry Iowans, no watching the bowl games that night. Romney will knock on your door and “track you down.”
