Romney Chairman quits. Can't deal with "ever-changing persona."

Mitt Romney's 2008 New Hampshire chairman, Bruce Keough, just declined an invitation to handle Romney's 2012 campaign saying he's "no longer sure what Romney stands for."

According to Keough, he could no longer handle Romney's "wishy-washy political identity and inability to stake out firm, consistent opinions."

Imagine how slimey do you have to be to be too slimey for a seasoned political operative.

No Huckabee, no debate. Romney bows out.

Back in February, I blogged that I didn't thing anyone serious was going to participate in any early GOP presidential debates until they knew what Huckabee was going to do. About Romney,specifically, I said I didn't think he would risk sharing the stage early on with the likes of the Godfather's Pizza CEO and the guy who yells "the rent's too damn high" only to have Huckabee throw his hat in the ring later.

Well, Romney bowed out of the first debate today saying, "the field is too unsettled and he's not an announced candidate."

As I said before, any debate without Huckabee at this stage of the game will be considered illigitimate.

Huckabee Statement: "Welcome to hell, bin Laden."

The following is the full text of Mike Huckabee's statement on the killing of Osama bin Laden by U.S. forces, taken from MikeHuckabee.com.

"It is unusual to celebrate a death, but today Americans and decent people the world over cheer the news that madman, murderer and terrorist Osama Bin Laden is dead. The leader of Al Qaeda--- responsible for the deaths of 3000 innocent citizens on September 11, 2001, and whose maniacal hate is responsible for the deaths of thousands of US servicemen and women was killed by U.S. military. President Obama confirmed the announcement late last night. DNA tests confirmed his death and his body is in the possession of the
U.S.

It has taken a long time for this monster to be brought to justice. Welcome to hell, bin Laden. Let us all hope that his demise will serve notice to Islamic radicals the world over that the United States will be relentless is tracking down and terminating those who would inflict terror, mayhem and death on any of our citizens."
