Christian right, tea party still wary of front-runner Romney

Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney seems to have everything going his way. The former Massachusetts governor is certainly ahead of the pack where it counts in fundraising and in many recent polls. He's the front-runner, right?

"Certainly that is where Mitt Romney is now. He's running really a strategy as a front-runner. He's not engaging the other candidates. He's focusing his attacks on Barack Obama. I think that's smart," said Doug Heye, a Republican strategist.

  2. Had ENOUGH CHANGE yet???

    Don't worry. When the choice is another four years of failure with Obama or Romney, the American people will choose Romney.

    Christian leaders who involve themselves in politics are not following the word of their Bible. They should not involve themselves in politics at all. It is their job to spread the word, not deliver the word. There's a significant difference between the two approaches.

    The whole country is wary of Romney. In fact, the whole country is wary of MOST of the republican candidates.

    They have lied too much. We no longer trust them. Corporations will buy the votes or rig the machines. It's all a big joke.

    Who care what the Tea Party think , they are the one In the last two years that Is tearing This country apart. The Tea Party Is all about Millionaire and Billionaire. They could less about the American People or America.All they care about Is how much more money they can put In there Pocket. Why do you think the Republican are fighting so hard not to rise taxes on the Rich, but so willing to take as much as they can from the Middle Class,the Poor ,the OLD and the Disable. So you tell me how fair Is this.
