Romney hires Santorum campaign manager

posted at 10:01 am on April 27, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Mitt Romney’s task as presumptive nominee will be to unite the party behind his leadership in time for the general election against Barack Obama.  That requires a delicate balance of expanding the message beyond the GOP tent while embracing the conservatives who have been reluctant to back Romney.  He has to find ways to reach those voters, and Romney has made a significant move in that direction by drafting the man who helped make Rick Santorum their champion:

Veteran Manchester Republican activist Mike Biundo, the former national campaign manager for Rick Santorum, has signed on with the Mitt Romney campaign in a key post organizing conservative voters for the presumptive presidential nominee.

UnionLeader.com has learned that after guiding Romney’s chief rival’s presidential effort, Biundo has now been hired for the general election as the Romney campaign’s deputy national director of coalitions.

“Mike Biundo ran an outstanding campaign for Senator Santorum,” said Romney spokesman Ryan Williams. “We are excited that he has agreed to bring his considerable skills and abilities to our team.”

Santorum will meet next week with Romney, and some have criticized him for not offering an endorsement by now, more than two weeks after suspending his campaign.  However, Biundo tells the Union-Leader that Santorum gave him his blessing to make the change to Romney’s team:

“They called shortly after Rick dropped out,” Biundo said. “We had several conversations. I spoke with Rick and made sure it was OK with him before I moved, and he gave his full blessing on it.”

Both Santorum and Newt Gingrich will negotiate a place for themselves in the upcoming campaign and convention, and how much influence they will have on the message.  Putting Biundo into that slot helps both Romney and Santorum, and underscores the increased clout Santorum has after a surprisingly effective 2011-12 campaign.  It also creates a liaison between Romney’s team and Santorum that will make it more comfortable for his erstwhile competitor to engage with the Romney campaign in reaching Santorum backers to pull them into the fold.

It’s a smart move all around.  That doesn’t mean that Romney will have no issues in stoking enthusiasm among conservatives, but he now has a key player who has proven his ability to get that job done, and on much more of a shoestring, as opposed to Romney’s well-funded campaign.  Give him a couple of months and a couple of more ridiculous personal attacks from Team Obama, and it might be easier than anyone would have thought.

That isn’t consistency that is obstiancy.

Happy Nomad on April 27, 2012 at 11:45 AM

Yes, how horrible that I thought that Mitt was qualified to be the second most powerful person in the world…
His consistent low polling numbers, his consistent low numbers regarding him not being able to connect to the common voter is “consistency” or “obstinatcy” (if that’s a word)?
Yet, as I have stated for several years, he is a brilliant man, great family, and as I have stated one is judged by “works he has created” a good businessman, and in general he has created great works…but flawed in the areas I noted.
I notice none of his hard core cultist fans ever identify where he could improve…why? Because they view him as perfect, and as Buy Danish stated, no man is perfect, not even Mitt…sorry to disappoint you.
But you guys can keep hating, you keep throwing out how I am a “hater” but funny how you never step back and see how horrible your responses are.

right2bright on April 27, 2012 at 12:16 PM

You have to understand, most of his ardent supporters are of the same faith…they follow without question, he is all but a “prophet”, so they don’t dare question him, I have not seen one ardent supporter question anything he does, it would be heresy. Their leaders are chosen in the church is the same way, they ascend by order, it is like a “union” position. You don’t question, you do as you are told.right2bright on April 27, 2012 at 11:06 AM

Doodoodoodoodoodoodoodoo….

It can’t possibly be because, whether one shares his faith or not, his supporters admire and respect his discipline and competence, his work ethic, spirit of volunteerism, love of country, devotion to his family, stellar background in business and proven success as a turn-around expert, and so on. It can’t possibly be because Mormons, for whatever reason, tend to share these positive attributes (which is why, for example, the CIA seeks them out as recruits). Nope, it can’t be that…

..not when I posted a comment that said “..tax cuts” and inserted an “n” into cuts.

Buy Danish on April 27, 2012 at 12:25 PM

There is a profound difference between holding Mitt Accountable, and refusing to vote for him because you vesting your entire personal identity in another candidate and now suffer from Romney derangement syndrome. It’s time to grow up and act like adults.

Not everyone who is hesitant about Romney is pissed off because their candidate lost. Better try again.

The other candidates made their cases as best as they could but more people voted for Romney than for any other of the candidates, that is the indisputable fact. Now throw yourself on the floor like a 2 year old and have your tantrum if you must, or accept the painful reality that the candidate you wanted didn’t convince enough people of the strength of their candidacy. Time to take your pampers off and put your big boy pants on.

No, Romney was not my first pick, not even my second or third, but he is the ONLY serious challenger to Obama. And I seriously want Obama out of office, he is destroying America.

SWalker on April 27, 2012 at 10:44 AM

This is fine, as long as you don’t blame anyone but Romney if he loses to Obama in the fall. But we all know you and your Mittwit buddies will be blaming anybody BUT Romney and themselves if he doesn’t win.

Some of us are hesitant to vote for a candidate that we have reason to believe would be little or no better than Obama. All we have to do is look at recent history. Moderate George H.W. Bush gave us eight years of Clinton. Moderate George W. Bush gave us Obama, and Romney is a helluva lot more “moderate” than George W. Bush and his daddy.

So many of you just don’t get that some people are using reasoning skills and logic in questioning Romney as a candidate. All of the opposition to Romney isn’t about “hating” or “childish temper tantrums.” You and your Mittwit buddies would do well to try to understand that concept.

The truth is that most conservatives had no candidate in this race. It was the least of all the “moderates” to choose from, and now we’re looking at the king of the moderates as a candidate, and you wonder why we’re frustrated and reluctant to cave in and fall in line behind him?

The only ones who are ENTHUSED with the Romney candidacy are the squishy, conservative hating MODERATES, who recognize Romney as one of their own. RINOS like KingGold and MJBrutus admit that Romney isn’t a conservative, and they’re thrilled that he isn’t! They don’t understand what another squishy, moderate RINO can do to the Republican Party…or maybe they do, and they look forward to destroying conservatism, and our country MORE SLOWLY than the Marxist in chief would. They are the ones who have been sitting here for months calling anyone who is hesitant to see Romney as anything other than the moderate squish that he is idiots, morons, etc. If anyone has been acting childish, it’s them. You get them to take their pampers off and put on their big boy pants and maybe we’ll start listening to them. Until they do, you’re doing nothing but aiding and abetting them in discouraging fence-sitters to consider Romney, when you insult them like this.

JannyMae on April 27, 2012 at 12:26 PM

When you lump all his supporters together under one religious umbrella and use the tedious threat to vote Obama, you present as a hater with an agenda to undermine our winning back the WH.

Slainte on April 27, 2012 at 11:20 AM

Redford on April 27, 2012 at 11:41 AM

I guess you missed this:

You have to understand, most of his ardent supporters are of the same faith

See the word “MOST”, it doesn’t mean all…but he carries well over 90%, probably 95% of the Mormon vote, and they have been manning the phone banks, manning the blogs, relentlessly…and there is nothing wrong with that.
But they are strident…look at some of the posts, good grief, some of the most hateful, spiteful, foolish statements have come from that segment of ardent, 100% Mitt supporters…and at times it’s creepy how strident they are…just look at Buy Danish (don’t know if she is Mormon, but she should be, her anger would be embraced), and her ranting, over me saying he should move to the right or he will lose…it’s just an opinion. Or me saying that his most ardent supporters find nothing wrong him him, absolutely nothing, as if he is a prophet or a god…the worship of any political person is weird and creepy, I put it in the same category of worshiping Hollywood stars.
News to all of you…politicians should be working for us, they should be our employees, not some one to worship and idolize…

Well stated. That’s what I was trying to allude to, but you said it better than I.

That’s okay. Let them keep ripping on people who don’t agree with them. Then they can blame “us” when Romney fails, because we know damned well that they wouldn’t have fallen in behind a candidate they didn’t like. But they’re the “adults” in the room.

Heh.

JannyMae on April 27, 2012 at 12:29 PM

It would just be nice to be voting for someone more than voting against the other guy.

Bitter Clinger on April 27, 2012 at 10:31 AM

Yes, it would. The only time I recall doing that was voting for Palin.

At this point, in addition to voting against Obama, for whom I have the same degree of hatred as angryed has for Romney, I plan to vote for Romney because I think he’s a competent businessman and the worst problems the US faces now are financial. I think Romney has the business, financial and economic knowledge to give us the best chance of moving toward a financially stable America. I think he understands the disaster that is ahead for Medicare and Social Security. I think he understands the importance of energy independence. I think he loves America. I think he wants a prosperous America for his 5 kids and 16 grandkids.

There are lots of issues to worry about. Obama does not have a single redeeming quality. I can’t think of a single position where Obama is superior to Romney. While Romney may not be as socially conservative as some had hoped the nominee would be, he is an improvement in every respect over Obama. Romney also manged to win the most Republican primary votes-by a large margin. If any of the other candidates had been as strong, or stronger, they would have won more votes and Romney wouldn’t be the nominee.

Romney will make a very good US CEO-much better than Obama. I’m sure we’ll get a budget. I’m sure he’ll cut spending growth. I hope he’ll cut the deficit and national debt. He’ll probably make better Supreme Court nominations than Obama. He’ll reign in the EPA. He’ll expand the use of domestic energy. He’ll stop making stupid investments in non-viable “green” energy initiatives whose only recommendation is they gave money to Obama. We only have 2 choices-Romney or Obama. Hopefully, everyone that hopes to preserve the safety nets of Social Security and Medicare for more than the next few years, that wants American energy independence and that doesn’t want themselves or their children to be burdened with an intolerable amount of national debt will pull the Republican presidential lever in November.

I think Romney is a good choice-not great, but not atrocious. Obama is the worst president the US has ever had. He has done untold damage in just over 3 years. The misery he could inflict in 4 more years, unrestrained by the need to run for re-election is terrifying.

talkingpoints on April 27, 2012 at 12:30 PM

Mitt understands that effective organizations whether his campaign, job-creating businesses, churches, the Boy Scouts, or state and federal government organizations need competent and outstanding people.

He chose Mike Biundo and Richard Grinnell because of their professional excellence. That is foremost. Everything else is secondary and a side bennie.

Obama does not understand this because he never ran an effective organization in his life. All he can do is surround himself with ideologues like Valerie Jarrett and Eric Holder.

It is precisely Mitt’s own excellence in the management of all kinds of organizations that makes him the only man who can lead the country through its multiple looming catastrophes.

In fact to make you feel better for the weekend…you are right, Mitt shouldn’t move to the right, he should keep his moderate policies, and he has done nothing wrong, he is perfect…and yes it is ridiculous to claim that people who find no fault in him, and lash out in anger at anyone who thinks different, think he is a “prophet”…of course he isn’t, he is just, just, just, soooo perfect, and dang gum kind of cute and sexy.
There, now you can have a nice relaxing day, not worry about my posts…a gift to you.

Mitt is much better qualified to run the country…but the danger in your post is the first paragraph…Obama ran a magnificent campaign last time, he trounced McCain, and the excitement for him was all but unprecedented…and we got stuck with the worst president in our history…don’t underestimate his popularity and his ability to sway people to vote for the “personality” and not the issues.
Mitt cannot compete with him in “likability”, so he has to separate himself with policies, but still make them exciting…it’s going to be tough for Mitt.
He should be double digits ahead…but as I said in the other post, Mitt only needs to win by 1% in each state, he doesn’t need to “conquer” Obama, just defeat him.

I am a Romney supporter at this time but wasn’t always. My support is mainly for economic and organizational reasons. He’s just the best man we have right now with the skills we need for the challenges that are facing us.

I believe he will do a better job in working with Congress to shrink the size of government and ease things in the economy that hamstring business growth than either Santorum or Gingrich will. He is also a rather devout Federalist and wants to have more done by the various states and I like that as well.

He’s probably the best candidate for President we have run since Reagan. He is to the right of George H.W. Bush, to the right of Bob Dole, to the right of John McCain. He SEEMS to be to the right of George W. Bush but that remains to be seen.

He is NOT a bad choice for President at all and a better choice than what we had to pick from this cycle.

The primary challenges facing us are economic and foreign relations. I believe Romney is the best man we have right now for those jobs.

right2bright on April 27, 2012 at 12:37 PM

Not sure I would totally agree.
It was a good campaign by way of comparison to McCain’s mess (gee thanks Steve Schmidt) of a campaign.

And because he had built a kind of cult of personality around himself, he and his people probably started thinking that they had indeed run a good campaign.

But… seriously. Obama as a campaigner is completely tone deaf.

Romney’s campaign has been obliterating the Obama campaign so far…and he isn’t even the “official” nominee!

Obama just kind of lucked into things in 2008. There was no skill involved.

Doesn’t mean that his luck will be easy to defeat… but Campaign Prowess and Obama don’t belong in the same sentence.

right2bright on April 27, 2012 at 1:36 PM

I’m sick of this idea that Romney has to do all the heavy lifting if some vague group of ticked off conservatives are going to support the GOP nominee. Romney can not take the conservative vote for granted but, come on!, he is the nominee. These fickle conservatives that are demanding to be pandered to need to grow up and see the big picture. Does anger that your more ideologically pure guy ran a bad campaign really justify allowing the reelection of Obama?

That Romney hired Santorum’s campaign manager shows that he is making an effort to build a broad coalition. All you selfish idiots who are just too conservative for Romney need to reassess your priorities because as much as you allow your hatred to drive you to support Obama by default, you won’t be any happier during the next four years and you actually have the ability to do something about it between now and November.
Happy Nomad on April 27, 2012 at 10:26 AM

Exactly…Like many have already said on here…Romney received the most votes through a hard fought primary season and now we need to back the R candidate that we are ALL hopefully wanting to defeat the D candidate…I know some will quibble on my simple analogy but really IT IS THAT SIMPLE. Obama and his administration is destroying our country as all you need to do is read the daily headlines and see all the power grabbing going on.

For those of you that for whatever reason are still arguing about Romney and his “moderate” stances you need to get over it. Yes, that is going to be rude but I would expect you to be an adult about this and would expect you to say the same thing to me if Gingrich, Santorum, or whoever had won. And you would be absolutely correct in saying it. Romney is our candidate so let’s focus on Obama.

Cross…as you and others know I have been a Romney supporter since before his first run in 2008. I am solely based on his turnaround abilities. He has abilities in this area, that our country needs, that have been rarely seen in our POTUS history.

Will Romney implement policies that we do NOT like? It is very likely and also not out of the ordinary. EVERY POTUS has if you study presidential history. W implemented policies that went against conservative thinking, Reagan did with Amnesty and other policies, GHWB did, Ford, Nixon, etc they all did things that the “true-con” would hate but that is where “those” on that side of the aisle need to realize there are not enough Americans to vote a pure candidate. There are not. So you have to run as a conservative to win but to get things done in DC you will have to from time to time vote on bills that have amendments you do not like.

I get “snarky” because his Mormon supporters get snarky, it started when many of us were against some of his liberal policies, so we were immediately called Mormon bigot…so don’t throw out your faux indignation, I am just carrying on what you guys imagine existed, what you created in your own minds. And I don’t mind jerking your chain.
I have called the extreme Palin supporters “cultists”, but you wouldn’t see that because you are only geared to read what you want to read.
The above retort to your post is a good example, I pointed out where you totally misread what I posted…and again I state, you completely ignored your error…but instead tried to create some new controversy in its place.
My suggestion…quit being paranoid, read the posts, than read them again before responding, and quit whining…

right2bright on April 27, 2012 at 2:11 PM

All I’m asking is that the whining little crybabies with all their hatred of Romney shut up long enough to see what those positions are.

Happy Nomad on April 27, 2012 at 10:56 AM

I know what his positions are. He spent years in Massachusetts making them a reality. Those that need convincing won’t be convinced when Romney’s words now literally and directly contradict years worth of his actions.

To me, this isn’t personal. It never was. I’m sure Romney is a nice guy (and Bluegill told me that’s not a compliment anyway, so whatever). I am with a significant percentage of the Republican electorate in believing that Romney doesn’t deserve the post he seeks. While that is not too big an obstacle to overcome in working to ensure Obama’s loss for me, it is for others. The sooner Etch-a-sketch and his supporters accept that, the sooner the real damage control can begin.
