    Isn't this old news now? And way overblown? Romney is no stronger now than he was in 2008. He will be the default GOP candidate because of incredibly weak competition.

    Obama must be kicked out of office, whether by 1 vote or a million makes no difference

    The goal is to defeat Obama.

    These were only 3 main competitors in 2008 (Romney, Huckabee, and McCain) while there are 4 now, so you would expect each candidate to have a lower percentage of votes because they are split among 4 voters rather than 3. Getting 50% when there are 4 main candidates is a big deal.

    Time for Fig Newt and Paul and Santorum to hang it up. Let's unite the party and get ready for what will undoubtedly be the dirtiest campaign the liberals have ever waged against an opponent. The air waves are going to be flooded with nasty stuff thanks to the great uniter and his followers.

    Why in the world have they chosen such a terrible picture of Romney for this article?

    Why does Romney have to receive more votes than he did in 2008 during the primaries? I thought he just had to win by a majority.

    It won't matter if he beats Obama by 0.5% or 15%, just so long as he beats him.

    Doesn't matter if Romney wins Nevada by 50% or 51% so long as he gains the necessary delegates to win the nomination.

    To "Anti Bush-Obama" and who would you vote for if Romney = Obama? Newt also idealizes the same past Presidents that Obama does. Tell us, which one of the frontrunners do you like?

    50% is good... but he had 51% in 2008 when he didn't get the nomination. So far he's had two good wins and three showings (SC IA NV) where he did no better than last time. He won CO and MN last go around and he's losing to Santorum in MN in the PPP poll. If Romney is going to be the presumptive nominee he needs to be consistently beating 2008 Romney.

    You got my vote Mr Romney, after all, they still love me in Congress to.

    Dear Mr. Schroeder,

    Thank you for contacting me regarding the temporary Social Security tax holiday. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this issue.

    Social Security is financed by payroll taxes, which are paid by workers and their employers. Normally employees and employers each pay 6.2 percent of covered earnings, up to an annual limit, whereas self-employed individuals pay 12.4 percent of net self-employment income, up to an annual limit.

    Several proposals to extend and increase the size of the Social Security tax holiday have been debated and voted on in the Senate. I have voted for proposals to extend the tax holiday and give workers a net tax cut that were accompanied with spending cuts so the proposal did not add to the national debt. At the same time, I voted against extensions that were accompanied with tax increases.

    Again, thank you for contacting me regarding the payroll tax holiday. Rest assured as this issue is debated in the future, I will keep your thoughts in mind.

    This draft dodging chickenhawk will not fix washington. Freedom and Obamney are down opposite roads. You can either vote for freedom or you can vote for Obamney.
