    I had to go 4 pages deep to find anything about Romney. Talk about staying below the radar. The GOP have no clue who to run. This is great.

    But Romney has the money. I've seen lots of commercials and my buddy just brought me a yard sign he picked up at the Romney HQ in Livonia, MI. He wanted me to keep it up until my friends saw it but I couldn't allow it to be seen by anyone who might think I'm seriously a supporter, so I trashed it. It wasn't a cheap sign. Very strong plastic. I'mpossible to tear. But I folded it up so its impossible to see what it says and its at the bottom of the dumpster in my condo.

    Who says one person can't make a difference.

    There's a reason why Romney does not do interviews that are not on Fox News.

    I think the problem is that 19-20 debates is just way over the line for any party.
    If you can't figure it out with say 6-7 debates a person is too stupid and shouldn't be voting anyways. I hope the candidates have learned from this.

    .

    The debates don't matter. He still has to speak in public with cameras present. That wonderful "my wife drives two Cadillacs" classic was on the stump, wasn't it?

    and thus the problem with Romney. He just doesn't get that he comes off with this "Thurston Howell IV" Vibe.

    You know what he was going for here. He wanted to say his family drives cars made in Michigan. But he comes off as he's looking for a jar of Grey Poupon.

    Class warfare is when you close down a bunch of working people's jobs and ship them off to China to create "profitability" for investors.

    Mike Huckabee said it best. Mitt Romney looks like "the guy who lays you off."

    But here's the problem- when do you have the debates?

    We insist on dragging out this process for months and months.

    Let's review everyone foolish enough to get into this and be in debates-

    Pawlenty- Dropped out after the Ames Poll
    Cain- Dropped out after the revelation he was a player
    Bachmann- Dropped out after Iowa caucus
    Huntsman _ dropped out after New Hampshire
    Perry- Dropped out after New Hampshire

    So really, after only two contests, we lost five of the nine contenders.

    Ron Paul is never going to be the nominee. But they insisted on letting him be in every debate.

    Meanwhile, Buddy Roemer and Gary Johnson never got high enough in a poll to ever be invited to a debate. The only thing that separates them from Romney is not qualification, but Romney's willingness to spend his millions promoting himself. They were both accomplished governors.

    The real reason this has dragged on for so long is that Romney is that the GOP rank and file doesn't really want Romney, but there aren't any better choices out there. So we need 20 debates to let you guys talk yourself into thinking this was a really good idea.
