And he can still win Iowa, and almost certainly effectively end the nomination battle. But there is no hiding from the outcome any more. December's two big debates are in the Hawkeye State, and the stakes on them have now been raised.

Script For “The Right Answer – Iowa” (TV:30)

Mitt Romney: “I spent my life in the private sector. I’ve competed with companies around the world. I’ve learned something about how it is that economies grow.

“But we’re not going to balance the budget just by pretending that all they have to do is take out the waste. We’re going to have to cut spending. And I’m in favor of cutting spending, capping federal spending as a percentage of GDP at 20 percent or less, and having a balanced budget amendment.

“The right answer for America is to stop the growth of the federal government and to start the growth of the private sector.

“I’m Mitt Romney and I approve this message.”
