Romney regains footing, shifts focus to Obama

Novi, Michigan (CNN) - As a television broadcast showed Mitt Romney pulling ahead in Michigan's hotly contested primary race, campaign advisers began streaming into the hall where he would speak.

The cheerful group's appearance en masse came minutes before Romney was declared the winner, and underlined his team's confidence after weeks of doubt about his Michigan prospects.

    Shifting the focus to the growing list of Obama Failures is easy pickins for Mitt Romney.
    The facts show Obama will go in history as the worst president we ever had. The country knows what Obama is and his legacy of Failures is well documented. There has been nothing but a lack of leadership from the White House and the Democrats in Congress. The majority of Americans see president Obama; the Obama administration as a complete FAILURE, November 2012 is coming; the 2010 election for Democrats was a slaughter; the 2012 election cycle is going to be a massacre for Democrats.

    "We didn't win by a lot, but we won by enough, and that's all that counts."
    It won't be enough come November Willard. Your flip flopping days are over.

    Poor little rich guy cant get people to like him, and has to spend like a drunken sailor to get people to vote for him. If you can't come up with a decisive win against the wako Santorum you know you are a weak candidate. Romney is going to have to to offer yet another tax break for the wealthy so he can buy a few more votes

    Listen to Romney's victory speech. He says we need a President to tell the truth, then he goes on to tell lies on Obama, like he will create jobs, unlike Obama. LOL

    I wouldn't say Romney got a foot hold in Michigan. More like toes on the treehouse ladder. The Republican party has moved too far off base for me. If America would put morals first the economy would prosper. Looking forward to hearing from third parties atp!

    Listen to Romney talk about “honesty” and “integrity” makes the stomach turn! We had to watch the GOP now for years and the “resulting” candidates for months. We know who and what they are from their own “work” and “statements”!
    Who do you think would run their show in the WH? It does not take much to know: Guarantied the same type of people that run Bushes presidency. Remember how that ended? The “rich” stuffed their pockets and what is left of the “middle class” and “poor” gets stuck with the disaster. If one listens to some of the GOP “voters”, the disaster was not nearly big enough for them – they want more of the same from the GOP…
