    An interesting observation.

    I noticed that there are almost no Romney threads. While people are stewing about whether or not Newt will be the nominee or not, I was sure that there would be a thread on the person everyone INSISTS will be the nominee.

    So I actually went back a whole 9 pages before I could find a thread on Mitt Romney himself.

    Joe, you aren't still holding out hope that he won't be the nominee are you? You really think this Newtie thing has legs? Really?

    So far we've seen the rise and fall of Bachmann, Cain, Perry and now the rise of Newt. It won't be long until he's back down in single digits and good old Romney is left standing alone.

    There will be plenty of threads about the cardboard cutout man then, don't worry.

    The support for Romney is unenthusiastic. Romney is kind of like taking your cousin to the prom. You don't want to do it but you know he is there if all other options fail.

    So far, it looks like Republicans will be taking their cousin to the prom

    The primaries will decide that. It all depends on who has the better campaign.

    The press wants Romney, which is why most Repugs don't want him. We don't need another McCain backing down to Obama after the primaries.

    Newt is the better candidate and the press will be attempting to bring him down.

    Personally I'm for giving the press a big shit-sandwich with a win by Newt. It would also tickle me to no end if the prospect rubbed you the wrong way as well.
