Romney hopes to regain momentum in Florida

Columbia, South Carolina (CNN) - After riding into South Carolina on a wave of seeming inevitability, Mitt Romney was dealt a series of blows here that culminated with a disappointing second-place finish in the state's high-stakes primary.

Even before losing to Newt Gingrich by a large margin Saturday night, Romney's team began to look ahead to Florida, where the campaign hoped a big lead in fundraising and on-the-ground organization could help him regain his momentum.

    Romney has run a very thin campaign and his message is that just because he ran a business he has all the answers on the economy, but the only answer he provides is that Obama is bad and Romney good. Romney was a little to cocky and thought he would take it easy on Newt and Santorum because he was entitled to win the Republican nomination because he made millions of dollars in business, and he failed to realize people are much smarter then he thinks and want more then past business experience on the resume for the toughest job in the land

    Romney's campaign is collapsing faster than the walls of Jericho.

    The first thing Flipper the Elitist Robot should do is make a big public show of getting Gov. Scott's endorsement. I mean, it worked so well in SC . . . .
