Every four years the right is faced with this because you have entrenched people running the GOP who can't think out of the box.

If the vote was held today I would have to write in my favorite candidate again, bozo the clown. He is better than obama and the repubs put together.

He's both prolife and prochoice, for and against gay marriage, etc. Seems like he's everybody's bitch.

To quote an article I just read: a conservative, a liberal and a moderate walk into a bar.... and the bartender says, "Hi, Mitt!"
You just made the case on why he's a perfect fit for professional American politics......


He's the ultimate cross over.....

A political chameleon......

If it's true that moderates swing elections, Mitt will be our next president.......

Romney would be a lateral or a step or two backward from Obama.

I would rather give Obama another four years, especially since the economy is improving. His foreign policy has been solid. Just needs to get Congress to quit bickering and compromise and come up with a sensible budget and we are all set.

If Ron Paul does not win the GOP nomination, which he won't, I will most likely be voting for Obama or a Libertarian if they are strong.

To back up what MrLiberty and I have said I just came across this, well worth the reading involved.
Mitt is not going to beat Obama and the GOP needs to realize this.. He keeps putting his foot in his mouth. Just walk away from him, please.

..What Mitt Romney gets wrong about the Detroit automakers’ bailouts


By Justin Hyde........ 14 Feb. 2012

Senior Editor of Motoramic

.By Justin Hyde | Motoramic – 6 hours ago.. .


Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney renewed his opposition to the Obama administration's bailout of General Motors and Chrysler today in several Michigan newspapers, contending President Obama's rescue made the companies worse. I wish I could leave politics to the professionals, but Romney's take just doesn't square with the facts as I lived them. Here's why:

Romney's a Michigan native; his father George Romney was a well-liked governor and head of American Motors. Yet Romney is neck-and-neck with rival Rick Santorum in polls ahead of Michigan's Feb. 28 primary in no small part because of his opposition in November 2008 to the bailouts that saved GM, Chrysler and thousands of Michigan jobs.

I covered those bailouts in Washington as a reporter for the Detroit Free Press, following them through Congress to the White House to the bankruptcy courts a few blocks off Wall Street. As a first-hand witness, I can attest that some of Romney's new arguments hold their own — but most don't. Let me explain, point by point:



"Three years ago, in the midst of an economic crisis, a newly elected President Barack Obama stepped in with a bailout for the auto industry."



In fact, the bailout began with President George W. Bush, who was forced to lend GM and Chrysler $17.4 billion in December 2008 after Senate Republicans blocked a rescue plan in Congress. Bush told reporters just last week that he was warned by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson that if he didn't act to shore up GM and Chrysler, up to 1 million jobs could vanish. Knowing what we know now, says Bush, "I'd do it again."

"The president tells us that without his intervention things in Detroit would be worse. I believe that without his intervention things there would be better."
