Wasn't Ted Cruz born in Canada anyway, so he's not eligible to run for president? What am I missing here? The Tea Party was great for getting back control of the house, but they cost the GOP the senate with incapable candidates and it was Tea Party candidates', (Mourdock et al) gaffes that turned the 2012 presidential election into a ridiculous campaign on women's rights.

"Obama's 'fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril' his second term in the White House, Romney said."

That's funny. A lot of people, me included, say your fundamental dishonesty on so many things during the 2012 presidential campaign kept winning that election.

It would be well for Mitt to acknowledge the dishonesty of Republican party leaders as well. It was the Republican administration of George W. Bush and the Republican majorities in the Congress who passed tax cuts, while increasing spending on defense and wars as well as social spending that created the largest deficits the country had ever seen up until that time. The Republican passage of Medicare Part D with no planning for how to pay for it other than deficit spending is fundamentally dishonest to taxpayers and those who think Medicare will be there for them in the future. The Romney-Ryan budget that Mitt campaigned on was built on deficit spending for many years. Isn't deficit spending fundamentally dishonest in robbing future prosperity for current appetites? Who besides the Tea Party folks are really trying to demand fiscal responsibility and fiscal honesty in Washington?

Gotta love how Mitt Romney slams the Tea-Party...

I guess that makes him a full-blown RINO too.

@Gandalf: Your dredging up Romney's so-called "dishonesty" (which you haven't a shred of evidence for) doesn't disprove the truth of his report on Obama and his outright misleading (OK, lies) of the voters. I weep when I realize we could have had a distinguished, competent and transparent American President capable of "reaching across the aisle" instead of the pick of the low-information electorate.

Really? Obama's dishonesty.

Romney basically denied he was the first person to ever implement mandatory health insurance coverage and insurance pools.

That's just plain rich.

I'd reword it as our citizen's fundamental greed, gullibility and laziness got Obama elected, but that's just me.

I would rather save the Nation than the Republican Party. RINO Republicans continue to break the Eleventh Commandment: 'Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.' The party is mostly run by self-serving Moderates and Progressives who will allow our freedoms to erode and our economy to collapse as they watch from the sidelines waiting to get a majority. And when anyone dares to stand up and try to act on principle they shout them down and call for 'rehabilitation.'

What could Mr. Romney mean by saying 'Obama's "fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril" his second term in the White House...?' Does he meant that Obama will not be well thought of after he is gone or that someone in the House of Representatives is drawing up the Articles of Impeachment?

Mitt Romney's insights are helpful. Universal and affordable health care are a given but Mr. Obama seems to blame Romneycare for his own mistakes. The tragically partisan fashion in which the ACA was formed has been met with equally tragic partisan opposition and the American people are the ones who suffer the consequences.

To Jim Morrison. One of Cruz's parents was a United States citizen therefore he is a United States citizen.

play by the rules

Romney's stance against the tea party, many of whom supported him, makes me glad he did not get elected. Thank you senator Lee for standing strong. If Chris Christie is the best the GOP can do I will find a new party.

@ Gandalf Provide us examples of those "so many things".

"Obama's 'fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril' his second term in the White House, Romney said."

Romney just proved that HE is the dishonest one.

Mitt's got a lot of nerve calling anyone fundamentally dishonest.
He was caught--on camera, no less, pulling notes from his pocket as he slyly rounded the dais at the first Presidential debate, then slipping them into his sleeve after.
Notes were specifically not allowed. Mitt should go away.

Anyone seen Mitt's tax returns yet? Everyone is asking. Just wondering...
Fundamentally dishonest? So what's up, Mitt?
Show us so we back off.

Every time I see a picture of Mr. Etch-a-Scetch, I am very grateful that Brack Obama is our president and he isn't.

Virginia Beach, Va

Obama outright lied to our nation to get re-elected. Romney would not have been perfect but would have been much better then Obama. The last two Presidents have been in over thier heads.

Kaysville, UT

Wait a sec...isn't Romney the guy who said he was a "severe conservative?" I guess Romney was lying, huh? And Chris Christie is a moderate along the lines of McCain and Romney. Un-freakin'-electable.

mikey and jimmy,
calm down. mitt isn't running again and your boy continues to run the country into the ground. you might worry more about barry than mitt.

Boise, ID

Too many old-school Republicans give more lip service to "working across the aisle" (with Democrats who have no interest in compromise), and too little lip service to conservative principles, at least fiscally speaking.

This long-time disaffected conservative will GLADLY support a true fiscal conservative over the wishy-washy RINO types - Cruz, Romney, McCain, Orrin Hatch.

It may be too late to save our economy, but continuing to pile more debt on the house of cards is NOT the answer!
