    ROMNEY is the Best and Only Electable Republican candidate. We need Romney's business savvy and depth of economic knowledge to get this country's economy rolling again. We need his seasoned judgement and team building talents to get things done. Romney will deliver a smaller, simpler, smarter government. Romney will rid us of excessive regulation and bring us fresh much needed efficiency.
    Santorum on the other hand is a Phony, a wealthy son of a psychologist who lobbied for coal companies and now claims to be a "blue collar" candidate. His extreme ultra-conservative religious views might be appropriate within his parish, but they are not appropriate in national presidential politics. Santorum has lots of insider political experience and seems to knowhow to work a segment of the public. But that does not make him electable or even decent presidential material.

    He has no authentic or spontaneous funny side: take a good look at his eyes.

    Romney must just QUIT!!!! Period. It's obvious that the republican electorate is rejecting him, since he's too far remove from most of us. Romney lives in a world of his own, on an affluence that more than 98% of Americans can't even dream about.

    So, he must just QUIT the race, distribute his tremendous wealth to the poor and go fallow Christ. As he knows it's almost impossible for a RICH MAN like him to enter into the Kingdom of god.

    At this juncture, QUITTING is the right thing for Romney to do. This will give him enough time to locate enough people to share his wealth with.

    QUIT NOW Romney! you just weren't cut out to be in the presidential suite, at least, not in the white house.

    "According to the poll released Sunday, 36% of registered Republicans said they are backing Santorum, while 28% prefer Romney."

    And the remaining 36% are backing Obama!

    Being God... just think of me as a kid with an ant-farm. Blame me, I'm responsible for everything that happens, including this train-wreck of a GOP primary... I work in mysterious ways, plus, I kinda like the black guy.. he's been through a lot, like my son..

    Romney is a funny guy... but more importantly, he knows how to make money – privately and publicly... and doesn't need to spend money to make money – like all the other candidates and current president.

    It's about time someone got a sense of humor.

    It is so amusing to watch the GOP self-destruct, done in by the fear and hate mongering factions of the far right. The emergence of Fecal Rick guarantees the Party will drive off anyone who is not an utter loon. In the end most Americans find religious fundamentalists frightening, whether they are the Taliban or some wing nut waving a Bible.

    It is time to start thinking about 2016, when all the chickens of Obama's reckless spending will have come home to roost. The scary thought is that things may get so desperate by then that a whacko like Santorum/Hitler may come to power.

    Mitt is a private person and to see him loosen up is great. We may be missing our greatest asset here.
