DAYTON, OHIO - Mitt Romney ambled through the exhibits at the InfoTech 2010 conference here the other day, shaking hands, posing for photos, sneaking an occasional chocolate turtle and, ever the salesman, promoting the candidacy of yet another Republican candidate.

No thanks, Romney!
Romney in 2012 will do for the Republicans what McCain did for them in 2008.
And the Washington Post gets ready to endorse him.
Profiles in Courage, 2010 edition.
He’s getting ready? What, he went for a haircut?
Isn’t he brave? Speaking on behalf of a candidate who is leading his race by 20 points in the week before the election. I’m impressed—NOT
Only REAL conservatives need apply in 2012. Romney can take a hike with McCain.
The Washington ComPost (and others) is STILL pushing Romney at us.... makes me laugh!
Oh my goodness, what a night Tuesday is going to be!
He’s getting ready to get ready.
The candidate that the Washington Compost wants the GOP to elect. No thanks.
Karl Rove will be pushing Romney starting on Tuesday. Get ready.
Elegant snake oil salesman.
the poster forgot to add the “BARF” alert
We really, really, really don’t need “Obama light”
Mitt, Newt, Huckabee,
Is this going to be another well it’s his time b.s. for the pubbies?
Well Bob Dull Dole has been around a long time.
Well Juan Mclame has been around a long time.
Well Newt has been around a long time.
Well Mitt has been a rino a real long time.
Crappola to these goobers. Move on fellas you ain’t the ones to lead at this juncture. Insiders, washington types, etc need not apply
By 2012, Romney (and probably Rove too) will be nothing more than political caricatures.
A Zombie would be Romney. The Washington Post will not be picking the Republican presidential candidate this time.
