BLITZER'S BLOG: Dems ramp up Romney attacks

(CNN) – Among the Republican presidential hopefuls, Mitt Romney is the candidate the Democrats fear most. That’s been clear to me for weeks.

Obama campaign staffers and Democratic Party activists have been going after the former Massachusetts governor on a whole host of issues, but especially on his so-called "flip-flops."

    Romney has presented a good economic policy that makes him somewhat attractive to us independent voters. However, to state, "so-called flip-flops" is being generous. He flip flops way too often on social issues and issues he feels will lose him votes. Mitt, if you want to be President, you need to learn to man-up, make decisions and then explain those decisions. If not, you can't get our vote.

    I've said it 100 times...too bad Huntsman can't get more traction. He's way too moderate to win the primary but he's exactly what this country needs. Not sure why a moderate can't win anymore, but it's the sad reality.

    "So called" flip flops??? "So called"??? Really??? A couple of principled changes based on new information or reevaluation are one thing, but when it's almost everything??? He's never held a position he wouldn't change on a dime if he though it would yield 20 votes. His campaign logo should be a chameleon.

    As Perry said, "he was for it before he was against it, which is before he was before it and against before it...."

    Oh, whatever!

    When Mittens told Mike Huckabee that he supported life at conception, he took a Taliban position against women. If a woman caused the death of an egg, they could be convicted of murder. If that idea spread to other states, like Texas, the woman would be fried before she was tried. Not much thought goes into Mittens positions.

    Romney is the most legitimate candidate because huntsman cannot act lunatic as he can. Romney ideology is classic trickle down philosophy. The problem is we are living in a global economy now and at the mercy of china. How the he'll we are going to compete with china whose middle class is like our minimum wage workers. Their is no comparison. When mitten release the chains off the corporations and set them free to do their businesses in more profitable countries "just like bush did when we saw an exodus of factories left our shores".how the hell we're suppose to get trickled on. Wake up America we need to bring the money here to circulate tax the rich. And these corporations will see so much demand from money coming back from them and their billionaire colleagues, that they will fight like hell to get the customers. Tax the rich so money can come back in America and create demand. Now we can start rebuilding our cities and infrastructures.
