Romney gets two big endorsements

Washington (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney picked up two more big endorsements this week, but neither appears likely to have much impact on sealing the deal for the GOP front-runner.

Tea party favorite Sen. Marco Rubio, often touted as a top possibility to be No. 2 on a GOP ticket, endorsed Romney on Wednesday, telling Fox News that, "It's evidently and increasingly clear that Mitt Romney is going to become the Republican nominee. We have to come together behind who I think has earned the nomination, and that's Mitt Romney."

    A CNN/ORC International poll released Tuesday showed most Republicans favor Rick Santorum staying in to present a conservative challenge to Romney.

    ..and therefore push Mittens farther and farther to the right, and guarenteeing his resounding loss in the general election. What a bunch of ........

    Just like the contraceptive issue, the gas price argument will also backfire against the GOP as soon as Rmoney starts to rake in big oil donations for his campaign.

    So what? Willard also has BIG houses, BIG cars, BIG bank accounts (offshore), BIG LIES and a BIG head to go along with those BIG endorsements. The guy loves BIG so much he's willing to sell the American people down the drain BIG TIME just to become president. The more I think about it the more Willard and Rubio would make a great pair. ALL lies ALL the time. You'll never be disappointed.

    Willard/Rubio a pair made in Anchor, U.S.A.

    Endorsements nowadays do not sway anyone. It is like: "Hey, do you still remember me, my name is so and so and would like to raise my voice"!

    Rubio is considered a "big endorsement"? Really? How can the endorsement by yet another corrupt GOBP liar be considered of value to anyone but other corrupt liars?
