    Well, now its Romney versus Obama and it is time to deal with reality. Obama's constituency wants to ban guns, and he will have the support of his party in Congress to do it if he is re-elected and especially if he carries the House back to the Dems. Speaker Pelosi will insist upon it.

    Romney, even if he is not what we would wish for on guns, is not going to make gun control an agenda item, let alone a priority. In any case, he is not going to deal with an issue in any way that his party will not support.

    Bottom line: can you really be confused about how your vote should go?

    It's time to watch over his ailing little girl.

    Unlike John Edwards who continued to campaign and whore around on his dying wife.

    I agree with GunDr. I voted for Santorum in our Caucus and hate to see him leave but my hat is off to him. There are more important priorities in life and your child is on top of the list.

    No matter what the leftists put in their attack ads or how the sympathetic press spins obummer's record, Romney isn't a socialist pr!ck intent on harming our nation. obummer most certainly is.

    I truly cannot believe that the public is stupid enough to re-elect him, but unfortunately, I will probably get it proved to me again

    Romney isn't a socialist? Then please explain Romneycare, the prototype for Obamacare.

    Rick could not have possibly won anyway! We just need Obummer gone and Romney is our only hope. As far as Rick backing out for his child? He had a child with a serious ailment when he chose to run?? If Obama wins, there will be the biggest race war you ever saw and I will be one supporting it. I am sick of the SOB

    Hold your nose and vote for Romney..........or against O. I guess we could save money and forget the convention now right? Have not had primaries here yet and Santorum will still appear on the ballot. Being so close to Massachusetts and living in a neighbor state already know that the 'new boss will be same as the old boss' just wearing a different label. Hoping for the best but expect to be sorely disappointed.

    Romney would win handily if he picks Col. Allen West as the VP

    New York Times reports,


    Mitt Romney speaking via satellite last month to a meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Mr. Romney has criticized the Obama administration over its policies toward Israel.
    But in 1976, the lives of Mitt Romney and Benjamin Netanyahu intersected, briefly but indelibly, in the 16th-floor offices of the Boston Consulting Group, where both had been recruited as corporate advisers. At the most formative time of their careers, they sized each other up during the firm’s weekly brainstorming sessions, absorbing the same profoundly analytical view of the world.

    That shared experience decades ago led to a warm friendship, little known to outsiders, that is now rich with political intrigue. Mr. Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, is making the case for military action against Iran as Mr. Romney, the likely Republican presidential nominee, is attacking the Obama administration for not supporting Mr. Netanyahu more robustly.

    The relationship between Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Romney — nurtured over meals in Boston, New York and Jerusalem, strengthened by a network of mutual friends and heightened by their conservative ideologies — has resulted in an unusually frank exchange of advice and insights on topics like politics, economics and the Middle East.

    When Mr. Romney was the governor of Massachusetts, Mr. Netanyahu offered him firsthand pointers on how to shrink the size of government. When Mr. Netanyahu wanted to encourage pension funds to divest from businesses tied to Iran, Mr. Romney counseled him on which American officials to meet with. And when Mr. Romney first ran for president, Mr. Netanyahu presciently asked him whether he thought Newt Gingrich would ever jump into the race.

    Only a few weeks ago, on Super Tuesday, Mr. Netanyahu delivered a personal briefing by telephone to Mr. Romney about the situation in Iran.

    “We can almost speak in shorthand,” Mr. Romney said in an interview. “We share common experiences and have a perspective and underpinning which is similar.”

    Mr. Netanyahu attributed their “easy communication” to what he called “B.C.G.’s intellectually rigorous boot camp.”

    “So despite our very different backgrounds,” he said through an aide, “my sense is that we employ similar methods in analyzing problems and coming up with solutions for them.”

    The ties between Mr. Romney and Mr. Netanyahu stand out because there is little precedent for two politicians of their stature to have such a history together that predates their entry into government. And that history could well influence decision-making at a time when the United States may face crucial questions about whether to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities or support Israel in such an action.

    Mr. Romney has suggested that he would not make any significant policy decisions about Israel without consulting Mr. Netanyahu — a level of deference that could raise eyebrows given Mr. Netanyahu’s polarizing reputation, even as it appeals to the neoconservatives and evangelical Christians who are fiercely protective of Israel.

    In a telling exchange during a debate in December, Mr. Romney criticized Mr. Gingrich for making a disparaging remark about Palestinians, declaring: “Before I made a statement of that nature, I’d get on the phone to my friend Bibi Netanyahu and say: ‘Would it help if I say this? What would you like me to do?’ “

    Martin S. Indyk, a United States ambassador to Israel in the Clinton administration, said that whether intentional or not, Mr. Romney’s statement implied that he would “subcontract Middle East policy to Israel.”

    “That, of course, would be inappropriate,” he added.

    Mr. Netanyahu insists that he is neutral in the presidential election, but he has at best a fraught relationship with President Obama. For years, the prime minister has skillfully mobilized many Jewish groups and Congressional Republicans to pressure the Obama administration into taking a more confrontational approach against Iran.

    “To the extent that their personal relationship would give Netanyahu entree to the Romney White House in a way that he doesn’t now have to the Obama White House,” Mr. Indyk said, “the prime minister would certainly consider that to be a significant advantage.
