And if Romney weren't a good candidate, you wouldn't feel the need to put him down. The more a candidate gets put down by the left, the better. Remember, they loved McCain and many claimed to "almost" vote for him...darn that Sarah Palin. Nobody should ever buy all of that bs.

Find me a candidate that the other side wont put down.

Talk is cheap. Like I said watch Romneys debates with Kennedy (I'll make it easy for you
video proof of flip flopping) or just check Romney Flip Flop for even more examples.

BTW, I'm not a member of the left. I am an average centrist who is slightly more informed. When we are against your candidate you should reconsider your fundamentals instead of blaming the opposition. Or you can keep pretending you are right somehow and everyone else is wrong, whatever works for you.

Mitt Romney won the straw poll at CPAC for who you would like the nominee to be in 2012 for the second year in a row. He won by over 20% above all else. Why can't people understand that is who the people want.

That last sentence is kind of confusing. If people want him, they'll vote for him. Or were you trying to say that some Republicans can't see that other Republicans want him? Maybe some Republicans want Palin or Jindal. If Republicans truly want him, they'll vote for him in the primary. I think that's generally the best indicator of how much a party wants someone. Who knows, maybe he'll win the primary this time around. Then you'll know that people really want him.

If you don't understand that each party promotes who they want to win the nomination and manipulates it that way, you didn't watch the last one closely enough. If it were the will of the people, without outside manipulation, Romney would have been the nominee last time.

Whoa, down Cujo. I'm just saying...if people want someone to win, they'll vote for that person. Someone always wins and others always lose, that's just how it works. Huckabee's supporters probably weren't happy, I doubt Paul's were either. So, like I said, if Republicans want him in 2012, they'll vote for him. Until that time, I think it's ridiculous to make a statement that Republicans don't "get" that other Republicans want him. Why would the Republicans sabotage Romney? What's your theory on that? Are you really suggesting that members of either party can't accurately assess a candidate and decide to support or oppose said candidate?
