    By getting behind the Big Mo's candidacy he is basically telling Santorum & Gingrich to bail.

    What say you?

    He is free to endorse whomever he chooses. Why would anyone have a problem with that?

    I think that Romney is the most electable out of the 4 candidates the GOP has now. Makes sense to support the guy that has the best chance to win in November.

    Santorum and Gingrich at this point are nothing more than also rans. If Rubio believes that Romeny is the best candidate or that the time has come to recognize that the also rans will never advance he is entitled to make that decision. At some point, the also rans will have to accept a loss and move on to the larger war. The sooner the better. obama must be defeated. That's the overriding goal.

    I totally agree with Wiseacre. Romney has the best shot in November and the sooner the GOP supports him and rallies behind him, the better their chances will be.

    Santorum and Gingrich are doing a huge dis-service to their party by staying in the race.

    When did the Tea Party become official? I like Rubio, but there is no Tea Party "party".

    There should be a "Tea Party" party. They are missing a HUGE opportunity.

    It certainly shows just how far out of the bounds of original intent the tea party has become.

    Romney or Obama. Those are great choices if we're interested in more of what the last 12 years have brought us. It's like choosing store brand or name brand products.
