The Ed Morrissey Show: Gov. Mitt Romney, Duane Patterson, Week in Review

posted at 1:21 pm on March 23, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (special time: 2:45 pm ET), Governor Mitt Romney will join us for a few minutes as he campaigns in Louisiana.  I’ll ask him about Rick Santorum’s comments, the two-year anniversary of ObamaCare, how he will engage the conservative base, and perhaps a little on foreign policy, if we have the time.

After, we’ll take a look at the past week with Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson of the Hugh Hewitt Show. Duane and I will talk about the Governor’s comments, as well as the rest of the news this week. All of this and more — and stay tuned for a preview of tonight’s Hugh Hewitt Show.

The Ed Morrissey Show and its dynamic chatroom can be seen on the permanent TEMS page — be sure to join us, and don’t forget to keep up with the debate on my Facebook page, too!

Marizela Perez has been missing for a year.

Marizela’s case has a connection here at Hot Air, as she is the cousin of the Boss Emeritus, Michelle Malkin. Michelle is trying to spread the word through Facebook and Q13Fox/KCPQ in Seattle. We want to encourage prayers for Marizela’s family, and also try to reach anyone in the area who knows where Marizela might be and ask them to contact the police.

The search has its own website now, Find Marizela, for the latest in the efforts to bring Marizela home. There is also a fund for the family to keep the search efforts going. Be sure to check there and at Michelle’s site for further developments, and keep the family in your prayers.

America’s Most Wanted is now on the case, too.

Michelle has a new update on the case on the one-year anniversary:

Exactly one year ago today, my 18-year-old cousin Marizela (known affectionately to her family and friends as “Emem” or “Mei”) Perez disappeared from the University of Washington campus in Seattle.

She is still missing.

Those words form on the computer screen with disembodied disbelief. But my heart is screaming:

SHE IS STILL MISSING. WHY, DEAR GOD, WHY?!!!!!

The not-knowing is every parent’s worst nightmare. It brought normal life to a standstill for Marizela’s parents, Edgar and Jasmin. And yet, they have to keep living and working and praying for their only daughter. Because that is what they must do. Their strength and dignity through all the suffering has been an inspiration to me.

There have been no new developments in Emem’s case. No word from the police or the medical examiner’s office. No activity on her bank accounts or social media accounts.

And no response from the Google legal department to our request for help in January.

Keep the prayers coming.

Have you picked bumper music yet?

Bmore on March 23, 2012 at 1:39 PM

Ed,

does Romney know your caucusung for santorum

gerrym51 on March 23, 2012 at 1:48 PM

I can recommend these folks. Very good sound.

Bmore on March 23, 2012 at 1:49 PM

A T T E N T I O N Bluegill !!! a broadcast especially for YOU!….(Special time : 2:45 pm ET)

KOOLAID2 on March 23, 2012 at 1:50 PM

Sorry Ed, wrong page for the link. This one.

Bmore on March 23, 2012 at 1:51 PM

Mr. Morrissey, tear down this endorsement!

EddieC on March 23, 2012 at 2:19 PM

Why does he still get to be called “governor” when he isn’t, and hasn’t been for years, and Sarah Palin doesn’t merit that?

Just curious. :)

Ed Snyder on March 23, 2012 at 2:38 PM

Coalescing much ?

FlaMurph on March 23, 2012 at 2:40 PM

Yay!

Bmore on March 23, 2012 at 2:45 PM

Hopefully he will ask for our vote.

If you don’t finish the term, and go into reality TV, you are just called an attention whore.

hanzblinx on March 23, 2012 at 2:53 PM

Ask for our vote!

Bmore on March 23, 2012 at 2:54 PM

If you don’t finish the term, and go into reality TV, you are just called an attention whore.

hanzblinx on March 23, 2012 at 2:53 PM

And if you finish the term and you wind up being a socialist RINO, then what do you get to be called?

Oh yeah… Obama Lite!

Ed Snyder on March 23, 2012 at 3:02 PM

Never once did I hear him ask for our vote. Correct me if I’m wrong. Not one mention of the South. Not surprising, but very telling. Nice interview on your part Ed. Thanks.

Bmore on March 23, 2012 at 3:03 PM

The only redeeming aspect to Romney winning the nomination is that it’s the final nail in the Republican Party’s coffin. The rank and file are finally waking up to the fact that the GOP Leadership really honestly doesn’t care what they think or want.

Bmore on March 23, 2012 at 3:03 PM

Sorry, but this strikes me as very childish.

Is Duane eating french fries ?

FlaMurph on March 23, 2012 at 3:07 PM

Oh yeah… Obama Lite!

Ed Snyder on March 23, 2012 at 3:02 PM

LOL! First his enemies call him a vulture capitalist. Then they call him a socialist. You see why they lose all credibility?

No mention of Tweenkie’s either. I knew it.

gatorboy on March 23, 2012 at 3:08 PM

Sorry, but this strikes me as very childish.

changer1701 on March 23, 2012 at 3:06 PM

Did I call you a derogatory name? Did I insinuate any thing to you at all?

Bmore on March 23, 2012 at 3:08 PM

Did I call you a derogatory name? Did I insinuate any thing to you at all?

Bmore on March 23, 2012 at 3:08 PM

I didn’t say you did. I was referring to the ‘never once did he ask for our vote’ thing. He’s out there campaigning for it…does he have to be on bended knee in front of you or something? I just don’t understand that particular criticism (and maybe saying childish was a little harsh).

changer1701 on March 23, 2012 at 3:15 PM

changer1701 on March 23, 2012 at 3:15 PM

Just got done going back and looking at some of your past comments. Just to see who you were having never heard of you. I see now the cut of your jib. Feel free to keep your remarks to me to yourself. I’m not worth your time. Here, let me lend you a mirror.

Your welcomed.

Bmore on March 23, 2012 at 3:48 PM

OT: The Weekly Standard site has a video of Occupy Wall Street taunting police with a doughnut on a string — tossing it toward them and then pulling it back. Sounds like “Here, piggy, piggy” at one point. “This – is – a peaceful doughnut” chant is included.

KyMouse on March 23, 2012 at 3:55 PM

I thought Romney did pretty well. I think it’s time for Ed to let Rick down gently and withdraw his endorsement.

CatoRenasci on March 23, 2012 at 3:58 PM

peaceful doughnut
KyMouse on March 23, 2012 at 3:55 PM

LOL! Sure but are they free doughnuts?

Bmore on March 23, 2012 at 3:58 PM

CatoRenasci on March 23, 2012 at 3:58 PM

I thought he did pretty well, too. Not that Ed was throwing any hard stuff at him, but it reinforced my belief he’s the best man for the nomination.

changer1701 on March 23, 2012 at 4:16 PM

Ed Morrissey lands an interview with Gov Romney.

That’s great. Ed has ultimate power and respect and its growing.

SparkPlug on March 23, 2012 at 4:18 PM

Ed don’t bring an Etch-A-Sketch or if you do you can joke about it.

But my advice is pretty much useless.

SparkPlug on March 23, 2012 at 4:20 PM

Sorry, but this strikes me as very childish.

changer1701 on March 23, 2012 at 3:06 PM

Considering Rmoney has made it plain that he’s not worried about conservatives because he thinks we’ll come around in the end, I don’t think it’s childish to expect a token effort from the plastic candidate.

Lightswitch on March 23, 2012 at 4:30 PM

This place is slowly turning into a cesspit….

What do you want him to say/do?

changer1701 on March 23, 2012 at 4:40 PM

Great show Ed, appreciate you explaining your take on Santorum walking it back. ; ) Thanks. Hey look a few comments! Which reminds me. You could give the cats in here a shout out every so often. Be good for morale. We can’t all be in the chat room, ya know.
