    "This is why people don’t trust Romney and it is Mitt Romney’s real weakness in the race. Conservatives do not trust Mitt Romney because they think he will say or do anything to get elected. And his unguarded, unscripted statement last night, which sounded like he couldn’t have illegals solely because he was running for office and how it might look, reinforces the view many conservatives have that he is an opportunist. "

    ----Erick Erickson on his site RedState.com

    referring to Mitt's claim of not hiring illegals

    " which sounded like he couldn’t have illegals solely because he was running for office and how it might look " says Erickson

    "CONSERVATIVES DO NOT TRUST MITT ROMNEY BECAUSE THEY THINK HE WILL SAY OR DO ANYTHING TO GET ELECTED. "

    Yep, Erick, that's the way it seems to the rest of us too !

    Mitt Romney will likely get the nomination, pick a very viable V.P., and then the American people will decide who they trust with the future path this country takes

    Romney may not be very good but at least I can feel comfortable that inside he really has no issue with gay people other than his lip service and he won't actively have an agenda like the others.

    Yeah, I did notice that last night. I watched/listened to the debate live and then watched the rerun later. Mitt gets nervous and then starts stuttering.

    I did for a moment think there was going to be fists flying between Romney and Perry. I think it was Newt who clearly had the best debate performance last night, but he’s unelectable. Huntsman is down to a one trick pony - New Hampshire.

    IT IS FUNNY in a bad joke sort of way.

    I suspect you are right, MockTwinkie, that Mitt "won't actively have an (ANTI GAY) agenda like the others".

    BUT would he sit idly while the Far Right Religionists go after us???

    If he saw any political benefit, I believe he would.

    As even the Far Right's Erick Erickson says

    "MITT WILL SAY AND DO ANYTHING" for political gain.

    No No, you made much too serious.

    "no issue with gay people other than his lip service"

    Lip service and gay people. I thought the use of the term 'lip service' was an intentional double entendre !

    Mock, you say about Mitt

    "that inside he really has no issue with gay people" .

    What gives you this 'inside' glimpse into Mitt ?

    jpBITCHva saidMittens Romney = Flippity McFlopper

    "Hey Mitt, what's your position on healthcare?"
    "Flip, ok?"

    "What's your position on gays getting married?"
    "Like I didn't say earlier, Flop. Okay?"

    "What's your view on taxation?"
    "Flip. No, I mean flop. No, I was right the first time: Flip. WILL YOU PEOPLE STOP HOUNDING ME?"

    "All right, governor: what's your positiion on driving to Canada for a family vacation with your dog tied to the car roof?"
    "Whew, I thought you were going to ask a hard one. I'm okay with it."
    He's running for office for petes sake! icon_wink.gif

    I think Mitt Romney being a "flip flopper" is more the left finding anything they can about Mitt (which is very little) and blowing it WAY out of proportion and losing all perspective. Like anyone his age running for office, Romney's feelings about any number of issues have evolved over time with the changing times. I think the USA would be damn lucky to have some one of his experience, stature, and knowledge leading our country into the future. We could do a hell of a lot worse -- and we have.

    Oh Curious, whenever it's convenient for you, try to give us some of this grand vision you see of Mitt's leadership.

    However it must be said that Mitt has brought us all together on one point:

    The Left and The Right SEE MITT AS AN OPPORTUNIST WHO CAN'T BE TRUSTED.

    Why ? ... Because he's a moderate .... in a crazy lunatic knuckle dragging party
    His flip-flopping comes from his vain attempts to cover his moderate track and trying to make him self out to be just as crazy as they are

    I see...Guess that is why among ALL the Republican candidates he remains consistently leading or near the top of the pack. I don't believe anything he has done or said in the past will keep him from getting the nomination, short of any surprises that may enter the picture before the Republican convention.

    WHAT you see is what we all see: In a pathetic field of panderers, each one desperate to achieve the LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR to appeal to an angry, DUMB base...........Romney Leads.

    We've had trump, bachmann, perry, romney, and cain leading at some point in time. Romney will prolly get the nod, but not because the GOP is overwhelmed by his candidacy.

    The first primary hasn't even been held yet for God's sake. Americans aren't really even paying attention yet

    Huntsman is thoughtful, sane and vaguely pro-gay.
    So he has zero chance with the Republicans, sadly. icon_confused.gif
    He'd probably be a pretty good President.

    Yep, but he's gotta get through the primaries first. Hell, for Huntsman, I'd take some time off work to work on his campaign. I've worked on pretty much all of them from Gerry Ford on. Now, I'm not counting the Goldwater / Miller buttons I used to wear to school as a 4th or 5th grader.

    If Huntsman started winning primaries, I would definitely try to work on his campaign in Arizona --- he'd be a great President!
