Bearing Drift's JR Hoeft post hits multiple news outlets

Jim Hoeft, proprietor at Virginia's Bearing Drift blog, wrote a post on Tuesday titled Romney-McDonnell 2012? In it, he noted that former Massachusetts governor and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney headlined a fundraiser in Virginia Beach on Monday.

JR picked up on a comment from Romney, who is currently considered at the head of the GOP pack:
"Romney said that McDonnell has been an 'incredible governor' and will be on 'any candidate’s short-list' for Vice President."
Which helped lead to the question of a possible Romney-McDonnell ticket in 2012.

The news outlets jumped on it and have been running with JR's supposition ever since with multiple links to Bearing Drift from nationwide sources.
