    WASHINGTON (AP) — "Remember Newt Gingrich calling Mitt Romney a liar? Michele Bachmann saying Romney's unelectable? Rick Santorum calling Romney "the worst Republican in the country" to run against Obama?

    "They're hoping you don't. And acting like it never happened — even though most of their words are just clicks away online.

    "One by one — with the exception of holdout Ron Paul — the GOP also-rans have coughed up endorsements of their onetime rival. And as they do, they're pulling rhetorical backflips to distance themselves from their former harsh assessments of Romney.

    Don't try this at home, folks. It takes a professional politician to pull it off with a straight face." Well they got this part wrong, there's nothing professional about those who now support Romney on this message board.

    You will learn to love President Romney.


    He is quite moderate.

    No question that Republicans will hold their noses and endorse Romney. That is what politicians do. Obama even made Biden and Hillary part of his team after a tough Democratic primary process

    Romneys challenge is that he is not getting groundswell support among everyday Republicans. A lack of enthusiastic support in November could hurt the entire GOP ticket

    Remember when Biden called Obama "Clean" and "Articulate"?

    They hate Romney, but they hate Obama even more. That's all that matters to the republicans.

    Par for the course, which is why Hillary isn't credited with starting the birther movement or a host of other things she threw at Obama during the primaries. Obama came back just as vicious, but later when he wanted her to be Sec of State, all was forgiven and forgotten.
