    I have to give the GOP some credit. There's no way any of those other moronic nitwits could mount a decent challenge. Every one of the other candidates are so out of lockstep with America they would try and march this nation back to the dark ages.

    This could spell trouble for Obama. From the beginning Mitt was the ONLY one that had any chance at all to unseat him.

    He probably spells as much trouble for Obama as Kerry spelled for Bush. For very much the same reasons. While one may loathe Obama for his policies, he hasn't really flipflopped on anything. For Romney, it's hard to tell his position from hour to hour. And his positons on the Ohio Union busting bill is going to be pretty deadly.

    people need to get real... gingrich's "surge" (which they really should complain is media generated, but that's another story) only puts him at about 15% support of repub voters. the race is still between mitt and cain... on average, mitt is ahead by 0.5%. that isn't statistically significant, although cain has dropped about 8 points since the sleeze factor kicked in.

    (or maybe people are actually listening to the nonsense he spouts).

    independents don't like either of these guys.

    If Mit Romney were president he would have already committed our troops to military action in Iran. From his own mouth, he proudly declared this.

    Which hour of which day did he forcefully declare this? Because I'm sure he's changed his mind on it at least 100 times since then.

    The campaign commercials have already been made...by Reversible Mittens himself. All it takes is a little editing and you can have Romney debating Romney. I don't know if you can name an issue he HASN'T flip flopped on.

    You are absolutely right that his position on the anti-union bill is going to hurt him, especially coupled with his statements about letting GM fail. (which, again, would have just been another way to drive unions out)

    WTF do you care? You're voting Obama again. Because he's done such a stellar job.
    Romney has never polled more than 30% support. Polls at this stage are stupid, as most people are still nt paying attention.
    Check the fundraising numbers. Perry is doing just fine, leading Romney. Shockingly Paul is in third place.

    I already said why I care. This could spell trouble for Obama.

    Perry's done, Rabbi. The sonner you face that fact the better off you'll be.
