“I am 100% behind Newt Gingrich because I want Romney to get beaten as badly as possible.
Romney and Gingrich are both incredibly weak in the general election, so I say: send Mr. capitalism back to the private sector first and let Newt get his wish to debate Obama, then we'll see how good of a debater he really is when he's not debating lightweights.”
He acted so dumb he made Texas republicans ashamed.”

“I don't think that's an act. I have a theory that George Jr., a frustrated actor, used Rick as his inspiration for what a real cowboy governor/president would be like. And people bought it, and not just in Texas!”
“And he's been practicing for like twenty years. Twenty years in and he still can't perform some of the basic functions of a successful politician.
He really has no talent for politics.”

“Right. I am astounded at how stiff and sophmoric he is at campaigning after all this time. There are high school freshman running for class president with more inherent ability. The GOP is really scrapping the bottom of the barrel at a time that demands brilliance and charisma. They are handing us their dregs when we need some strong medicine.”
But, after watching Romney lately move along at his gaffe-a-week pace, I think once the general election starts and the whole american electorate meets Mitt, he might be rejected in big enough numbers before the debates begin.”
“I see Romney as too weak; currently, he's average a gaffe a week; he's got this tax return issue now; he always been stiff as a board, a total flip flopper, a real inauthentic character and I don't know if I've ever seen him connect with a voter.
The debates may be inconsequential, for a big enough of the percentage of americans might reject Mitt before we have them.”
“What a strategic blunder by Romney. Holding this tax return thing up and letting it snowball into an issue. Whatever is in there has to come out eventually and it will only get worse the longer he waits.
The only thing the Romney campaign has done right is fool the republican voters into thinking that he's electable.”
“Another example of how much of a lightweight Romney is as a politician.
Santorum, who is a dope, just easily out pointed Romney.
If Romney faces Obama in a debate: flawless victory with a fatality for Obama.”

“Calling a TKO kinda early. Obama will work more with his gravitas of the office. He knows the job, and really knows the law. Every detail. Romney always ducks questions by going on what he perceives as offense, changing the subject. That doesn't cut in on the national stage, with a genuine moderator, who will just re-ask the question. What Romney can do is brag about the miracles he will perform as president, in contrast to the ones Obama didn't. It's hard to answer that stuff, and I'm not sure Obama is nimble enough.”
