    In another thread about Romney sheltering money, I told you guys just the mere appearance of impropriety on this subject was going to hurt him. I said that when you combine this story with the Bain issue and the I "may" release my taxes issues that it would hurt him. I was right.....

    Snip:
    PRINCETON, NJ -- Mitt Romney is a considerably weaker front-runner among Republican registered voters nationally than he was at the beginning of the week. Romney now leads Newt Gingrich by 30% to 20%, with Rick Santorum and Ron Paul tied at 13%. At the beginning of the week, Romney had a 23-percentage-point lead over Gingrich and Santorum.
    Romney's National Lead Down to 10 Points

    And this latest issue with the Cayman Islands hasn't even made it into any commercials yet. Once it hits the political ads on TV the damage will multiply.

    I think this all combined gives Obama far too much ammo to use in the general. I think it severely hampers his chances at beating Obama. The left have been beating the class warfare drums for some time now. And one could attribute Obamas rise in the polls to part of this tactic. Now he could have a totally refreshed reason to keep pounding on the issue if Romney is our nominee.

    I'm beginning to think nominating Romney may be a mistake.

    Who the hell cares, Perry was a perpetual 4th or 5th. Do you really believe he could have beat Obama?

    Of course it's going to hurt him, the only ones that dont believe it will are retards or dont understand how perception plays a part in politics

    None of the clown show members can beat Obama. Just listen to him do his rendition of Al Green yesterday on You Tube... That guy is good! :lol:

    The GOP should grow a fucking spine and stop looking for a flawless, perfect candidate.... I have news for ya.... ya ain't gonna find one. The Democrats can't and nor can you.

    Get your fucking backbone out - for once - nominate the best man to fix the clusterfuck that is America and get your fucking message out. It is not overly complicated. Just, for once, stay the fucking distance and stop fucking whining.

    Fair enough. He was good. Tell you what, he can have the American Idol title and we'll take the whitehouse. That way everyone ends up where they belong based on their true skills.

    This won't hurt Romney just like Bain didn't hurt him, except among democrats and who cares what they think.

    What hurt Romney is Gingrich and ABCs plan to derail the campaign with an ex-wife hit piece. Romney is still pretty steady in his position, Gingrich is rising as Paul and Santorum are falling.

    According to this weeks polls it did hurt him. Significantly at that.
