Stop-Romney movement sets skirmish lines in South Carolina

(CNN) - For most of 2011, South Carolina was the forgotten stepchild of the Republican race.

As former Republican Gov. Mark Sanford put it, "Just a few weeks ago, most people I talked to wouldn't know where to find a bumper sticker."

    Bridging the gaps between nations and political beliefs, Mitt Rmoney speaks fluent French, being there on a religious deferment during the Vietnam draft. He was spreading the word while supporting the war.

    Mitt Romney's dad was the first Mexican-American (born Chihuahua Mexico polygamous´╗┐ community) to run for President of the United States (1968, look it up, undisputed)

    Mitt Rmoney can bridge the political gap. He ran to the left of Ted Kennedy in MA and now he is Mr. Conservative and soon to be Mr. President. Left or right doesn't matter to him.

    Born to be President, looks Presidential, totally flexible on policy, he will redefine the republican brand when he wins.

    If conservatives continue to split their votes between Gingrich, Santorum, and Perry (and Paul?), Romney will be the GOP nominee. Then you will all have a choice between voting for a real liberal or for reelecting the President.

    I strongly dislike Romney, and today when John Huntsman made his now infamous remark which put Romney in his place, I could have HUGGED him. I hope Romney fully appreciated the response of the crowd! And I'm a Dem.
    Should Mr. Huntsman run again in '16 I do believe he would receive support from Dems. and Independents maybe even some Reps.-if there are any smart ones left.

    The Republican candidates cause me to lose hope in the democratic process. Out of 325 million people this is what they come up with? Religious freaks, corrupt business men who flip-flop every day, ignorant, ill-informed hicks, a slimey horn-dog of a lobbyist, a ridiculous old anarchist, and a closet Democrat who isn't mean or crazy enough to get attention. I would be absolutely ashamed to call myself a Republican.
