Mitt Romney communications director Eric Fehrnstom, last night:
I don't think anybody expected Mitt to win Alabama or Mississippi. As Mitt said, this was an away game for him, and I think that's absolutely true.
True enough, Mitt Romney did say exactly that. But then again, Mitt Romney also said he would win.
Maybe Fehrnstrom meant nobody expected Mitt Romney to win Alabama or Mississippi except for Mitt Romney.
