Mitt Romney’s health care speech takes a beating — on Fox News

Now this is brutal: The Democratic National Committee, which has been having a lot of fun with Mitt Romney’s tribulations, is set to go out to its list with a video compilation of pundits and commentators hammering Mitt over yesterday’s health care speech. But the kicker is that all the footage compiled by the DNC comes from Fox News:

As you can see, Fox commentators, reporters and contributors were withering in their criticism, at best suggesting that his speech was a flop and at worst claiming his candidacy is over.

The point here is that Romney is taking a beating from the critics who actually matter — the conservative talking head types who communicate directly with GOP primary voters. Romney’s speech has succeeded in setting him well on his way to losing one of the most important contests of 2012: The Fox News primary.
