I'm hoping that SC voters

I'm hoping that SC voters will be smart enough to not hand the nomination over to Romney. SC can be the turning point against Mitt. Lets hope they can rise to the occasion. Romney will guarantee Obama a second term.

You could be right, but the conventional wisdom says that Romney would be the toughest one for Obama to beat. They say that the independents do not like the "extremists" (as the mainstream media calls Gingrich, Paul, Perry, Santorum).

Romney it must be! We cannot

Romney it must be! We cannot leave the country in the hands of Obama and we certainly don't want a loose cannon such as Newt.

Lamb.. that's what the Obama

Lamb.. that's what the Obama camp wants everyone to believe.. that's why they have engaged in this campaign to make it appear that they are most worried about Romney. Actually they relish the idea of running against him. You are already seeing their strategy with Bain Capital. Plus, Romney doesn't exactly excite evangelicals and many of them will never vote for him.. suspicious of his mormonism and his true convictions on social issues. If turnout of the base is depressed, that can easily hand Obama a victory in key swing states. But I think at this point with this GOP line up, Obama gets a 2nd term. But don't be fooled that they are terrified of Romney.. they have a strategy to beat him and it will work.

The GOP doesn't do well with

The GOP doesn't do well with wishy washy milque-toast candidates seen as the "most electable".. if that was the case we would have President McCain running for reelection

Dipshot..So you are saying no

Dipshot..So you are saying no Republican can beat Obama. And of course we know without a doubt that the remaining field has zero chance.

Evidently you are a Democrat..you see, we conservatives know better.

I warned everyone back in

I warned everyone back in 2008 that nominating worn-out, septuagenarian John McCain would bring defeat to the Republicans. I voted against both McCain and Obama in the general election back then.

I'm not saying no republican

I'm not saying no republican can beat Obama.. but this line-up leaves a lot to be desired. Plus I don't buy the argument that the Dems are most afraid of Romney. I think that is a ruse. If they truly were afraid of running against him, they wouldn't let that out.

I dislike Romney although he

I dislike Romney although he will probably be the top runner. AS bad as I hate to admit it and worry how we will survive I believe that Obama will go in for another 4. Why is it no one on here ever mentions Ron Paul? I happen to like him.....
