Romney gets more good news ahead of Super Tuesday

Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney picked up another conservative endorsement Monday and a new poll showed him pulling ahead in Ohio heading into Super Tuesday, the biggest single day of the Republican presidential campaign.

A day before contests in 10 states will decide how more than 400 delegates get allocated, Romney announced that former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft had joined fellow conservatives Rep. Eric Cantor, the House Majority Leader from Virginia, and Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma in endorsing him.

    These endorsements don't mean anything. I'd be running for cover if I got endorsed by Eric Cantor and Christine "I'm Not A Witch" McDonnell. Endorsements from former Bush aides isn't that much better.

    While Rmoney may be "leading" lets see if fewer voters turnout out as compared to four years ago. That seems to be a pattern for the GOBP deathcult this year.

    "Looks like the Romney campaign is shaping up into another George W. Bush campaign in disguise"
    Exactly, but not very well disguised. Check out Romney's extensive list of Foreign Policy advisers on Yahoo.
    Bush retreads for sure.

    Thank goodness conservatives are waking up and realizing that Rick Santorum would be an embarrassment as president.

    They can endoses away that doesn't change the fact that this flip flop clown has no balls at all. He could have used the limbaugh mess to take a stand . He did not. For than matter neither did any of the repos candidates. They brought up all this contraseptions stuff and now all have backed away. When testifying to what you believe in gets the response it did from right wing media and none of the candidates say this is wrong then every woman out there should relize where they stand. Vote out all the repo pigs. Hope every sponsor rush has pulls the plug. Absolutly scary to think that his show draws the amount of people that it does. Mitt is no match for President Obama and being rich should not allow you to buy the presidency.

    Right on PJ/TX. It's been clear for quite some time that Rmoney is GWB V 2.0 (minus the "compassion" and public speaking skills). He has indeed surrounded himself with the exact same delusional neocons who caused so many problems during the Bush reign of error. His tax plans look exactly the same. The GOBP deathcult continues to sell the same failed ideas and plans election after election. Our nation needs to wise up and realize we need to vote straight Dem until the GOBP grows up and comes up with some new and viable plans.

    Does he really want an endorsement from that loser Cantor? Seem to me every tie he gets a "big name" endorsement, it does not mean squat in the final analysis. And John Ashcroft? Who cares?

    Is Mitt conducting a sing-a-long in that photo? Mitt is trying to bring back those small old time town hall rallies, that's a wise plan for Team Romney–it takes care of optic issues since no townhall in America seats 65,000 people. LOL Mitt this is the internet age and you just can't pull off that spontaneity no matter what venue you chose, but keep trying.
