The thing is that Mitt isn't losing, Mitt is winning. Polls show that the election is too close to call right now which means that Romney has already won.

teabrains have turned the GOP into a National Circus! A veritable Clown Show of Bozo's. A bad reality show if you will. Just look at who are the Republicans leaders these days...you'll be seeing a lot of them come convention time! Ugh.....

Gingrich
Michel Bachman
Donald Trump
Ann Coulter
Resius prisbius, douchemas maximus
Rick Santorum
Sarah Palin
Rush Limpbaugh
Herman Cain
Governor Government forced trans vaginal probe Bob O'Connor
Rick Perry
Alan West
Breitbart.com

And who have they vaulted into the highest position of Presidential Candidate, Leader of all Republicans, why non other than the runner up to Sarah Failin Palin for VP in 2008

Swiss Mitt, Etch A Sketch, Flip Flopping, Cash-Hole, you can't see me cause I'm hiding behind my hand Willard Rmoney!

The GOP have circled down the toilet these last 3 years, best of luck losing 2012 and years beyond.

Really? When were anyone of them President of the United states for 3 1/2 years?

Romney and Ryan;
No foreign policy experience whatsoever.
Two rich white guys who never worked
a day in their lives.
One wants to close all Planned Parenthood clinics
and the other wants to shut down Medicare.
Can't wait to see how that plays with
women and old people, two of the largest
voting blocks in the country.

FOX news, yesterday, had President Obama
up 9 points over Romney.

Are you saying that FOX news is lying?
Why would they lie FOR President Obama?
They don't even believe he is American.

Romney is behind a bit because he's not a street-fighting man, like Obama. Obama cares about ONE thing: his re-election. And he doesn't care who knows it. If a few Seals die so he can brag about killing Osama, too bad for them. If all the intell gathered in that raid is rendered useless, who cares? If the Iranians are given a huge clue about the nature of their computer virus, that's just the cost of letting the Little Man brag and earn more votes.

Furthermore, Romney has let this "if you talk about Obama's radical past, you're a racist" crap takeover his thinking. That's pure BS. WTF does Obama's race have to do with his political philosophy? There are thousands & thousand of lily-white left-wing radical. Then entire socialist movement was invented by a bunch of old, dead white men over 100 years ago. You can be a left-wing nutjob from ANY background.

Romney needs to ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK! And quit all this pussy-footing around. Go for the jugular... or lose like a wimp. Obama'a achilles heel is that he is, and always has been, a far-left, America-hating, semi-pathological radical and liar.(How many terrorist bombers do you know personally? How many politicians do you know who started their political career in the home of a terrorist bomber?)

It may take another four years of the Amazing Shrinking President to convince people that Obama's socialism is a dead end. After eight years of terrible performance, growing danger on the international front and more boring blame-shifting, maybe the public will tire of Obama's failed policies.
