For those who watch the Fox News Channel on a regular basis, being treated to a daily dose of Romney-praise has become a matter of course. Apart from its hard news programs which aim at a balanced approach to the stories of the day, the programs that are purely political commentary have generally decided that the former Massachusetts Governor should be the next President, that is, among the candidates who have already announced. Outside of Romney, only New Jersey Governor Chris Christie fits the bill for the Fox pundits.
From Bill O’Reilly to Dick Morris, from Ann Coulter to Bill Kristol, in one accord most of the Fox personalities and consultants seem to believe that only Romney is capable of beating Barack Obama and that he is the best candidate for the job. Even Laura Ingraham, who often substitutes for O’Reilly, admitted this week that she supported Romney in 2008.
