Romney promises to get more aggressive with Santorum

Washington (CNN) - Suddenly facing new questions about the strength of his candidacy, GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney indicated Wednesday he's prepared to wage a more aggressive campaign against Rick Santorum, the surprise winner of all three of Tuesday's Republican contests.

"We think we can beat Sen. Santorum where we compete head-to-head in an aggressive way, and we obviously didn't do that in Colorado or Minnesota to the extent that (Santorum's) campaign did," Romney told reporters.

    Romney cannot beat Santorum one on one, face to face. That's why he invites the super pacs to get dirty on his opponents. He ought to stand up on his own and defend and define himself.

    Actually, what Americans want to see out of the Republican candidates is an optimistic, clear path to the bright future of our country in a stark contrast with the pile of excuses and misfires we have been getting from the Obama "Administration". We can do better. Tell us all how. You know how. Highlight that and lead us there. People are tired of the unproductive politics in Washington and the reckless squandering of the resources of our country with no plan.

    Hahahaa. I love this. Let's drag this sucker out until the GOP Convention. And we thought that John McCain had a mess on his hands. LOL I hope Newt wins and picks Sarah Palin for his running mate. Can we say de ja vu?

    Reasonable Republicans don't turnout to vote because the Party offers nothing but ridiculous choices. The Tea Party is to blame for this mess – the radical right-wing does not really represent the American people but it forced these clown down our throats.
