Romney rides high toward Super Tuesday

Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney picked up two conservative endorsements Sunday to add to victories in three states last week heading into Super Tuesday, the biggest single day of the Republican presidential campaign.

With two days before contests in 10 states will decide how more than 400 delegates get allocated, Romney's three opponents all appeared on Sunday talk shows to outline how they can catch the front-running former Massachusetts governor as the primary season heats up.

    Wake up America. Romney IS our future. Santorum is a nice enough guy but Obama will eat him like a snack!. Like it or not Romney is the only one seasoned and polished enough to beat Obama. As republicans it's time to rally and get started beating on Obama not each other. Romney will swing moderates to us and if we, as strong conservatives, unite behind him Romney WILL beat Obama. Time for wishing and dreaming is over. It's time to rally and prepare for the real battle. Swallow your stubborn ideology pride and rally around the only Conservative who can actually beat Obama. He has a public record that people can pick apart, bit he has no skeletons in the closet. He is a Mormon for crying out loud! Off the chart family values, loyal to 1 wife, honest in business and acknowledges Jesus as his savior. He is by FAR the best we got. Let's rally around him and unite and heal our wounds and start the Obama fight. Bring it!!!

    Rmoney is riding high alright; high in ridiculous ad spending per delegate from an ever more anemic voter base too tired, bored or disgusted to show any enthusiasm whatsoever for this flaccid field of clown car candidates. In other words, Rmoney is riding about a high as the tallest kid on an elementary school basketball team. Ain't gonna cut it with the adults. And a steady 60-70% of his party dislikes him enough to vote for someone else.

  5. Former Republican, now an Independent

    These 2 endorsements could be the kiss of death, especially the one from Eric Cantor.

    You know what they say" the higher the top the longer the drop!!??"
    Voting Republican gets you back to Bush era politics and policies namely:-
    Repeal everything Obama passed.
    Pass Social legislation on Gays Abortion and planned parenthood as priority
    Lower taxes to reduce debt..... not one economist in a recessionary ( global) environment says it will increase revenue
    The budgets proposed by 3 out of 4 candidates ( RP =exception) are all budget deficits and debt increasing to either similar or greater levels than the Obama plans/ budgets.They are spending cuts heavy RP and will further damage employment numbers i.e increase unemployment.
    Please remember the 8 years of bush tax cuts created the lowest number of Jobs over that timescale than ever in the past 50 years. So much for high earners being Job creators. The real effect was the rich got richer and the poor got poorer.
    Obama will beat any candidate of the current republican potentials
