do you think the MSM ran this photo of Romney on purpose. They couldn't find a better photo of him than this? sure.

One would guess that Romney is the anti-Tea Party candidate with his moderate approach to finance. Perhaps this will bode well as he runs the primary gauntlet. But the fact remains that the most active and ardent Republican primary voters are conservative, Tea Party ideologues.

This will certainly be fun to watch as Romney competes for these Tea Party votes throughout the South and moves more toward the wingnut fringe in the pursuit. However, current thinking is that the Tea Party would be satisfied to control Romney through its control of Congress. He might be more amenable to Tea Party demands and therefore perform like an actual Tea Party president.

I'm holding out hope for Ron Paul. he's the one single GOP candidate who could get my vote.

Romney is reportedly getting heavy backing from Wall Street, which has largely abandoned Obama, as Wall Street donors are resentful of the financial reporting requirements they are now having to produce, and also wary of the Occupy Wall Stree & related protests.

This should be an interesting development to watch.

I don't believe that Wall Street donors are abandoning Obama. He's their man.

ps. where did these financial reporting requirments come from? Probably hidden deep within a so-called peice of legislation called ObamaCare.

And in this corner the republican than forced people to buy health insurance. And in the other corner the democrat trying to make everyone buy health insurance...

The only difference is we havn't seen Romney's birth certificate.

I am really tired of hearing everything blamed on the mainstream media.

Can someone please explain to me who is NOT part of the mainstream media?

And........Mitt Romney's father, George Romney was born in Mexico. Although he was born in a foreign country, George Romney ran for President of the United states 30+ years ago.
Has anyone questioned their birth certificates?
Apparently, times have changed since back then.

JoeBlow (and all),

When deciding who the "mainstream" media is, we would do well to remember the following (per the Wiki folk):

"News Corp. is an American multinational media conglomerate. It is the world's second-largest media conglomerate as of 2011 in terms of revenue, and the world's third largest in entertainment as of 2009".

"Clear Channel is the largest owner of full-power AM, FM, and shortwave radio stations and twelve radio channels on XM Satellite Radio, and is also the largest pure-play radio station owner and operator."

You don't get much more "mainstream" than these folks.

News Corp. of course, is the owner of Fox. Clear Channel runs a lot of Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, etc.

So who is the "mainstream" media? The same folks who keep telling us to beware the "mainstream" media.

Ironic in the extreme.
