    Mittens has the GOP moving in 7 opposing positions and in different directions at the same time. I hope he sells the GOP to China, . . . oops, too late.

    I never thought, I would feel bad for the GOP. After all, they made Prairiebus head of the RNC.
    But with Romney, they are going to hell in a handbasket.

    President Obama going to wipe the floor with Mitt Romney, he already following President Obama lead, President Obama is leading in keeping student interest rate low, Mitt turn't back around to the reporters saying that he is in full support, now call your buddies in Congress and tell them to vote to keep the interest rates low. Oh, only thing they need from you is to sign the bills.

    Now to all of my followers – Where forth are thee??
    Come all of my children – The "far-right" too should follow and forget-me-not
    I will not forsake thee because I already FLIPPED and it will be difficult now to FLOP!!

    Those doggone Democrats are not going to let me forget
    They remember "everything" I said and they are taking bets
    To see how much I try to ignore what I said in the past
    “That’s right R-Money it’s going to be difficult – you picked the wrong PATH!!”

    Mitt Romney deserves the position of leadership. He is in the right place with the right capabilities at the right time. America needs this downward spiral to be stopped. Obama's federal government is all about politics. It doesn't help the nation and right now it's the nation's problems that need to be fixed. Mitt Romney is the guy. Republicans have picked a winner.

    What's next? Leaping tall buildings in a single bound? He's won one general election in his career, and raised fees on everything that moved in MA. He's a winner alright, for the Democrats. Thanks for the early Christmas gift!

    I'm not buying it. Romney doesn't have the support from the right wing of his party.

    "Move over Reince Priebus, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and the others. You have a new boss."

    Same as the old boss, spouting the same old worn out policies, eh, GOPers? Thing is, with Mitt, you never know what that Pandora box of surprises he's holding is going to bring forth. Kind of like a "is he, or isn't he" (conservative, moderate, liberal) showing of Twilight Zone comes to America ... one Etch A Sketch episode at a time.

    He cannot beat Obama, doesnt have the Paul supporters and that is a major chunk of the party, and since he is a democrat, he can never get those supporters either..

    Sorry, but NO, he is NOT the new leader. rove, limbaugh, the koch brothers, anybody on faux news, dick morris (who really doesn't like him).
