The GOP establishment is out in force now--endorsing Mitt Romney from every direction--while blasting all other GOP candidates. So I had to wonder when Nikki Haley governor of South Carolina--who is considered a Tea Party conservative was thinking--when she came out for Mitt Romney--considered a more moderate candidate--over the other conservatives that are running for the GOP nomination.

Big endorsement: Romney picks up SC governor's aid - Houston Chronicle And then this article: Mitt Romney short on Tennessee endorsements | timesfreepress.com It's clear that the GOP establishment has circled the wagons around Mitt Romney.

It looks like we're going to get him shoved down our throats whether we like it or not. Politics as usual.
