    Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has come out in support of President Obama's decision regarding the Osama bin Laden pictures. This took place after all GOP candidates taking part in a debate yesterday with the exception of Herman Cain said that they would (even Ron Paul). Romney is towing a different line: "It's best not to release the photo because it has the potential to incite retaliatory violence against Americans," Romney, the nominal front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, said in a statement to POLITICO.

    LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Sen. Orrin Hatch says he would support former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney over former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. for president in 2012, citing Romney's efforts on behalf of the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City. Hatch told a newspaper in Logan that even though he likes Huntsman "very much" and is close to the Huntsman family, he has always been a Romney supporter and fully expects him to seek the White House again. He praised what he called Romney's economic background and ability to make decisions, including his role as chief executive of the...

    The Boston Globe has an interesting story pointing out that once-and-future GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is not trying to suck up to the Tea Party movement, a fact which distinguishes Romney from virtually every other potential Republican presidential candidate. According to the Globe: As the former Massachusetts governor lays the groundwork for a possible second presidential run, he has largely shunned Tea Party activists in key primary states, including the state he must win if he enters the race, New Hampshire. Thus far, Romney is on track to present himself as the establishment candidate--a responsible, mainstream Republican leader with...

    FOR MITT Romney, running for president in 2012 looks a lot like running for governor in 2002. All he has to do is elbow aside a Republican woman, run against Democratic leaders and their liberal lockstep politics, and keep talking about the economy. Eight years ago, that was the Massachusetts game plan. After Romney thrust himself into the governor’s race as the can-do candidate with a Harvard MBA, acting Governor Jane Swift took herself out of it. Romney then turned Shannon O’Brien, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate and the Democratic leaders of the Massachusetts Legislature, into the so-called “gang of three.’’...

    Is O'Reilly in the tank for Romney? I realize this was a charity event, but O'Reilly's snarkiness towards all things Palin leads me to believe that Romney has already made his choice for 2012. out Romney's twitter feed for more photos.
