OUR VIEW: Republicans' best bet for defeating President Barack Obama is Mitt Romney | al.com

Mitt Romney wins support of Alabama Gov. Bob Riley - Election 2012 - The Washington Post

Excellent to see Romney getting endorsements in Alabama ahead of the state's primary next Tuesday.

Yes it is good news. I am hoping Alabama comes through for us and sets a precedence for the south.

Me too. It would be amazing. I really don't think it will happen though, especially if Santorum wins Kansas on Saturday and gets momentum.

What is interesting is that Romney actually did a lot better in Oklahoma than I expected. There was only a 6-point margin between he and Santorum, which was less than the margin in Tennessee.

Republican establishment guys endorse Romney. What a shocker! They are trotting every old pol they can find in front of a microphone trying to put the cork in this one.

Funny, according to this site:

State and County Literacy Estimates - State Estimates

15% of the people in Alabama lack basic prose literacy skills...but

23% of the people in your state of California lack those same skills.

I wouldn't bet the farm on it, but one never knows. But yes, it would be great if MR could make inroads in the South, beginning with Alabama. Still, most of the people I have talked to here in the Heart of Dixie are for Gingrich or Santorum. You can't convince them otherwise, no matter how much you point out how flawed either of those two would be.
