Mitt has a problem. Hes had his chance to run away with the GOP nomination but the man that so many were eager to name the GOP frontrunner has won only one primary, the same number as his two major competitors, Gingrich and Santorum.
One would think that Romney might have had more success in the primaries so far, given the clear weaknesses of his competition. The most distinctive things about Santorum are his religion and his sweater vests. Newt has his own problems, named Jackie, Marianne, and Freddie Mac. Romney gets to be the frontrunner by default, but because of his ambiguity, Republicans arent rallying around Mitt.
Even after Mitts strong showing in the debate last Thursday, he remains a whopping nine points behind Gingrich in nationwide polls among Republican voters. Unless he makes a strong showing in the Florida Primary, Mitt may have missed his chance to really take a stand on the issues that have plagued his public image and campaign.
Just a disclaimer: I volunteer for the Gingrich campaign.
Mitt has failed to gain traction due to his record as a flip-flopper. In his defense, he is not nearly as extreme as the Democrats Mitt v. Mitt video makes him out to be. The video uses quotes taken out of context to say that he supported Obamacare when, in fact, Politifact finds no evidence that he was ever in support of the federal health care law. If you ask me, manipulating someones quotations is a pretty shady form of political lying. If you ask U.S. law, its slander. No matter what you call it, Mitt missed a chance to respond to that video and clear his name of the most egregious flip-flopping.

Why gave you excerpted your own blog?
Is Free Republic just a hit-farm to you?
You might want to reply.
Just heard my first “scorched Newt” radio ad here in northern Nevada. Let the games begin.
When you decide to become a freeper then let us know, in the meantime why not take your blog pimping, and stuff it.
Not entirely a hotbed of scum and villainy but not Simon-pure either?
