Where's Mitt Romney?

Funny, isn't it, that Mitt Romney is absent from the scene in the biggest Senate race in Massachusetts since Bill Weld challenged John Kerry?

Why do you suppose that is? Romney was a two-term governor of the Bay State, yet Scott Brown hasn't, to my knowledge, invited Mitt onto a podium with him.

Curt Schilling is obviously a welcome endorsement. But not the former Massachusetts governor and presidential candidate.

It's got to be due to Brown's salient issue, health care. Romney is responsible for having gullibly signed the current Massachusetts socialized health care bill into law. And what a mess it's become.

You have to believe that Brown doesn't want Romney to come near him this week. If anything, Brown might invite Romney to a rally and send him, instead, to one of Martha Coakley's.

The fact that a heretofore unknown Republican state senator is about to win a Senate seat in Massachusetts does seem to reflect the state's voters' anger with spending, their own health care, and, probably, as Bill Weld said recently, other local issues.

In any case, I find it odd that Romney has been so absent during this surprising campaign. He hasn't even appeared on the usual Fox News programs with Neil Cavuto or Sean Hannity.

Very telling, is it not?

I'd say this whole debacle also signals that you've seen the last of Mitt as a GOP presidential contender- ever.
