It won’t take divine intervention after all:
Mitt Romney no longer thinks it will take an “Act of God” for Rick Santorum to be the Republican nominee, as a top aide told reporters last week.
Fox News’ Bill Hemmer asked Romney whether he agreed with the top aide’s quote, given to reporters at a background briefing at his Boston campaign headquarters last week, Romney replied, “No, no no.”
“Anybody has a shot at becoming the nominee,” Romney continued.
In related news: Romney could have kept Rick Santorum completely off the ballot in Illinois (as he did in Virginia) but didn’t. And now he’s saying Rick Santorum doesn’t need an act of God to win the nomination. Next thing you know, Romney will say that Santorum is the front-runner. Or maybe even Newt.
