As the late, great gospel singer Jake Hess used to croon, “We have this moment to hold in our hands and watch as it slips through our fingers like sand.”
Right now someone ought to be humming it in the ivory palaces of the GOP, where campaigning has given way to cannibalism, devouring its front-runner’s momentum while spitting out any shot at recapturing the White House.
And there’s Mitt Romney right in the thick of it, proving either that he didn’t learn a blessed thing when this same crowd ambushed him four years ago, or else he’s still so bitter that he cannot harness his resentment.
So now he eviscerates Donald Trump the same way Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and the rest of that GOP field went after him, ripping into his viability as a presidential candidate.
One can only imagine the enormous delight that must have been to Barack Obama, just as Hillary Clinton has to be reveling over the Republicans’ current internecine battle. The more they focus on each other, the less attention they’re going to pay to all of the flaws that might make her unfit to be our commander in chief.
Instead, Romney, once hunted, has become the hunter. It’s pathetic.
