In what appears to be a preemptive excuse for a Romney loss, former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour said today on CNN's State of the Union that Hurricane Sandy "broke Romney's momentum." Watch (starting at 1:00):
BARBOUR: The hurricane is what broke Romney’s momentum. I don’t think there’s any question about it. Any day that the news media is not talking about jobs and the economy, taxes and spending, deficits and debt, Obamacare and energy, is a good day for Barack Obama. When you had a blackout on all of those issues that started about last Saturday and lasted until about yesterday — that is what really was good for Barack Obama. Now whether it will be good enough remains to be seen.
