Mitt Romney, the MSM/Republican establishment's designated "front-runner," has failed utterly to connect with or win affection or trust from the over two-thirds of Republican primary voters who self-identify as conservative.

I’m no longer sure of this so-called “not-so-secret fact.”
A case can be made that a Republican Congress would have an easier time reining in a runaway Obama, and could certainly defund all of his initiatives, especially including Obamacare, than that same Republican Congress would have denying a President Romney his wishes.
And we really don’t know what Romney’s wishes are, do we? He’s stated and restated his principles in so many forms that the only two things we know for sure are that he holds no obvious core principles, and that he refuses to call Romneycare a mistake.
In my opinion, voting for Obama is a better way to get Obamacare effectively off the books than is voting for Romney, because we can’t trust Romney to do any more than tweak the existing law. And if that’s all he does, we’ll be saddled with it forever...
