Obama's campaign is singling out Romney - perhaps this is the only candidate that they fear in November? TV ads and fliers urging the unions in Michigan to get out against Romney in the Open Primary.


Its official the Democratic leadership wants to have a say for who will face their guy.

They did the same thing in Florida as far as negative ads. They do not want to face Romney.

It stands to reason Team Obama would probably PREFER to face the weakest opponent. But I really don't think Obama's overly concerned about ANY of them.

The GOP better hope for a "game changer" of some kind, or it's all over but the cryin'

Romney is the presumed nominee by both the Democrats and the Republicans. It makes sense that the Democrats would be positioning themselves against the candidate they believe they'll be facing in November. It's called politics.

Romney's been attacking Obama for months. Why are you guys because Obama's team is attacking their presumed opponent? It's what they're supposed to do. At some point this year Willard is going to have to answer the questions asked and not give a canned stump speech.

Where was I crying or even disapproving of it? You are full of drama...and why do you have the maturity of a 12 year old...yes Romney has a silly first name.

All 4 candidates have attacked Obama. Conversely, Obama is singling out just Romney and his PAC is essentially encouraging non-Republicans to go out and vote against Romney in the Republican Open Primary. Why? Perhaps he fears Romney the most. That is my point. What other reason would there realistically be to single out Romney?

Speaking of canned speeches.....what does Obama do when the teleprompter malfunctions?!?!

I think Obama's stand on Santorum is to just leave him alone, let him do his thing, let him keep talking, and he'll self destruct pretty quickly. Gingrich and Paul aren't threats, so it leaves Romney to be his main opposition.

I agree. He'd rather face a non-threat or a self-destructer.

Although I do think Ron Paul could stand a chance if the economy gets worse.
