Romney appears to be GOP nominee - now what?

St. Louis (CNN) - After devoting seven years and tens of millions of dollars trying to convince conservatives that he is one of them, Mitt Romney finally has a firm grip on the Republican presidential nomination.

Now comes the hard part.

    What now ? Take a side,one side ? Stand up like a man to Ted Nugent ? Tell us how you are going to fix the economy in detail,including how you will measure success. ? Show us your plan for healthcare for the middle class ? Explain in detail why Russia is in your crosshairs ? Produce your tax returns for the past ten years ? Explain why you do so many things that are against the mormon religion ? Explain in detail why you send American made profits to other countries ?

    The basic facts still have not changed. Most people still think Romney is a flip-flopper. Many conservatives still hate him. His reputation has taken a beating among independents. His support among women has nosedived. Democrats never like him. Romney has too much working against him. He has no prayer in November

    Good luck won't be enough. This man and his "no dignity wife" by his own words are sliding into a black hole. He has no character nor integrity, can't figure out what he really believes in from one day to another, lies about everything he ever did or said and to top it off should have been fined for animal cruelty.
    Never mind those rich sons of his who are too good to serve their country. I am sure they have been busy trying to figure out how that car in their La Jolla mansion is going to work!

    Mitt Romney has lived a comfortable life in world completely different and isolated from middle class existence, and it shows. His visible discomfiture when interacting with ordinary people is startling at times. I don't know if he has a bad back or neck problems, but he cannot seem to be able to turn his head without turning his shoulders. He moves like C3PO.

    The hard things for Romney will be to stop lying every time he opens his mouth and not switching positions based on what he thinks voters want to hear. All Romney does it run his mouth and he offers no facts and no details to back up anything he says. These lame tactics may work with dumb right-wingers during a primary, but it won't work when intelligent voters are actually paying attention.

    Sorry, Mitt. Obama is going to mop the floor with you and it will be fun to watch.

    Win the White house and Congress,
    1) Repeal Obamacare .
    2) Prosecute the current administration and everyone who signed the Obamacare bill.
    3) Fix everything else

    Now CNN has a chance to redeem itself as an independent unbiased news organization.
