    The Republican Primary was over when the fat-cats selected Romney as their lackey. They knew how profitable it would be to have a boy who's in the "club" and who's such a flip-flopper he can be directed to change course at a moment's notice. The other candidates were nothing more than window-dressing to make the toothless masses believe they had a choice.

    It is time for Newt and Rick and Paul to step down. It is time to move on and unit your party. Don't any of you worry, you will not be the only losers, Mitt will lose in November, so have heart.

    Captions for the candidate photos –
    Romney: (smirking) "I'm the nominee, get used to it."
    Santorum: "Help me, Jesus!"
    Gingrich: "Gotta lose some weight, I can't even see it anymore."
    Paul: "Now, what was it I came into the kitchen for??"

    This process is taking more time and causing more boredom than Jessica Simpson's pregnancy.

    I still say that picture of Santorum makes him look constipated.

    149 days until the Mitt McCain bloodbath in Tampa. A backroom convention while Ron Paulbots run wild on the floor like they did at the Missouri voting.

    Why go through all this headache. These men don't have anything else to do with their time. Seeing Romney and Paul Ryan together is like seeing two evil demons ready to send the US to oblivion. These are selfish and heartless men who rather see the elderly and the poor suffer more than to give up oil subsidies and keep the healthcare reforms. There is NO way the Americans are going to vote for Romney and Paul Ryan together. Wake up Romney! You keep getting all these Republican endorsements from men who are as bad as you are. It is only making Santourum look better. All these Republican Candidates should be planning what they are going to do after the elections because you sure are not going to be in the White House. Americans are smart, they are not going to vote Republican so that we can be where we were three years ago. You must think we are crazy. President Obama is getting us out of the stinking hole we were in. Do you think we want to go back to where the Republicans put us in especially the three Wars that brought our economy down the tubes. How stupid can you be for calling the Russians our enemies. You have no sense at all. Romney, you don't have any tact or brains. How are you going to work with diplomacy?
