    It seems like more often than not I end up voting against someone instead of for someone. I believe Romney is the best of the two.

    Michelle Bachmann, Jan 2, 2012, when asked if Mitt Romney can beat Obama:
    "No, he can't beat Obama because his policy is the basis of Obamacare."

    So much for the highly vaunted conservative value of standing firmly on principle. Realpolitik and expedience prevail. So far Romney has a slew of tepid and reluctant endorsemments from Republicans who aren't fond of him but have to support the team. Are there any prominent conservative leaders outside of Utah who endorse Romney because they actually like him and his policies and not because he happens to be the last one standing?

    Governor Romney knows how to work with all people and with different backgrounds and specialties. This is definitely not going to hurt a balance of people that it takes to campaign, win and then manage the government in the many agencies and departments and with a philosophy of the United States of America Constitution. The government can't be an Ad Hoc group as is happening right now. There are solid principles that the United States of America was founded and has endured through thick and thin. We can't let the thin get stretched without regrouping on the basic principles and bending the rules and regulations by a Constitutional type attorney or lawyer or college instructor of those principles. Michelle Bachman is a good person and is not afraid to speak about adhering to the basic principles of the Constitution and how to do that. She is dedicated and will blend in with the message that Mitt Romney has to offer. As a non-incumbent, Mitt Romney is at a disadvantage not able to use the vast resources of the government to get the message out in a way that President Obama does. She adds a special perspective.

    I AM a Republican. A mainstream (conservative, not far right wing) Republican. I certainly don't "hate" the GOP -- I'm trying to get it back to what it should be instead of what the far right has turned it into.

    I don't "hate" Romney. I just find him unqualified by his actions, experience and temperament to be President. I'm willing to be proved wrong, but the facts (everything I see and hear about him) make it more and more clear that the assessment I've made concerning him is correct. I don't want to see Romney inflicted on the United States. (BTW -- as I've said before, I don't want Obama either. It's very likely that I'm going to write in Jill, my border collie.)

    "And that's one more reason to vote against Mitt. I am still waiting to see any reason to vote for him. Somehow I don't think I ever will."

    Somehow I don't think you ever will, either. It seems you have made up your mind and aren't willing to let any facts get in the way of your hatred of Romney and the GOP.

    Wow! I'm all in! If Michelle is endorsing Romney I'm convinced. She knows so much about what it takes to be President. After all she did run for "15 minutes".

    And that's one more reason to vote against Mitt. I am still waiting to see any reason to vote for him. Somehow I don't think I ever will.

    Very typical. Bought and paid for establishment candidates endorse Bought and paid for establishment cadidates. They hate the constitution unlike Ron Paul.

    Well"who's", let's compare, Mitt receives an endorsement from a classy Michele Bachmann, and Obama gets Michael Moore.
    Remember the phrase, we are judged by the company we keep.;)

    Bachmam isn't my favorite politician, but a lot of people really like her in the Tea Party. This is a good endorsement. What's interesting is that this 'severely divided' GOP, as the media likes to call it, is getting behind Romney.

    It's only May and nobody, despite all the prognostications and predictions, can say what will happen six months from now. However, I have a feeling that on November 7th, Barack Obama is going to look like the man behind the curtain in the Wizard Of Oz.
