Columnist Dick Polman says the Republicans are doing to Romney what Obama doesn't yet have to.

Thanks, guys.

I wouldn't be so thankful. If it all gets hashed out now and people are able to realize that what Romney did actually resulted in there being more jobs in the longrun, Obama won't be able to use all this against him.

Shouldn't Romney, or any of the candidates for that matter, be able to show the party faithful that they are able to withstand and counter any challenge the dems may throw at them. Better you find any insurmountable flaws now than being surprised in the fall. Better the dirt is out now, give the public time to get use to it and draw their conclusions. A late October surprise can be deadly.

All the dirt flying around early like this will actually help Romney (or which ever candidate gets the nomination) because by the time the general election rolls around the public will be desensitized to it.

Unless, of course, one of them had their pictures taken with Donna Rice.

I can say that the vetting Romney will undergo will leave no stone unturned, and therefore no surprises for obama to spring on anyone.

Eventually this campaign will come down to obama's record...and then what? Yes that's right you poor dimwitted leftwingers....it will be time to turn out the lights...because the party for Mr. obama will be over. He can slink off to join the ranks of the completel failures with jimmy carter.

Maybe someday they will be on a reality show together...we can call it 'CELEBRITY APRESIDENT'...Starring Donald Trump...where he gets them to perform whacky tasks to score points. And whichever one of them scores the most points, gets to drive Donald around in his Limo for a full year.
