  1. #1 Romney runs in front; Democrats try trip-ups 
    Romney runs in front; Democrats try trip-ups
    Polls indicate tight race with Obama

    In the past month, Mitt Romney has delivered a widely panned defense of the health care legislation he signed as governor of Massachusetts and been the constant target of national Democratic attacks — and also has seen his poll numbers rise and his status solidified as the best-positioned candidate to win the GOP nomination and take on President Obama.

    The latest data came Wednesday from a Quinnipiac University Poll that shows Mr. Romney running nearest to Mr. Obama. An ABC-Washington Post survey on Tuesday found Mr. Romney topping Mr. Obama, 49 percent to 46 percent, among registered voters. Both surveys showed the former governor at the top of the crowded field of GOP candidates vying for the chance to run.

    Some analysts said Mr. Romney’s staying power is a sign of the groundwork he has laid since 2008 and his strength on the key economic issues likely to dominate next year’s election, while others said he is just cruising on his near-universal name recognition. His strong showing, skeptics assert, says more about Mr. Obama’s vulnerabilities than about the GOP field.

    ”They know [Mr. Romney‘s] name. They don’t know anything about him,” said Republican strategist Michael McKenna. “What that survey question really is is: ‘Would you rather have somebody other than the current occupant?’“

    The Washington Times might be jumping the rally-round-the-candidate gun. Perry is still thinking about it.

    Perry is the whole package. I hope he runs. I think he would wipe the floor up with Romney and the Magic Negro.

    Foxnews.com is reporting that Perry is "very likely" to run.

    Also, the report is sloppy with regards to Perry's abilities in courting the Hispanic vote. I agree that he did not jump on the Arizona silliness like most of the so-called Tea Party types but he did have a special session of the Texas Leg and the use of state police power with regards to immigration status came up. I am not sure that is enough to satisfy the nativists in the Republican Party, though.

    More of the childish "so called?" What are you, a "so called" human?

    So called moderate, lib has too much of a distasteful stigma attached to it for him.

    Why is it that someone who opposes illegal immigration is automatically a nativist? My wife is an immigrant. We had to pay fines and back taxes to make her legal, and that was after we were married. Is it too much to expect that legal immigrants who follow the rules, obey the law and demonstrate respect for our institutions not be insulted by a blanket amnesty to illegals who have demonstrated a lack of respect for our laws and institutions?

    Yes, apparently. I'm still trying to figure out how Mexicans citizens are to be granted blanket citizenship here without any kind of a check on them.

    Yeah. Who are they to try to uphold federal law.

    They'll put a big pinata in the middle of every major city and fill it with Democratic Party voter registration forms.

    Exactly. If the Feds won't do it, why should anyone else? And why is it that the Feds will sue a state for enforcing federal law, but take no action if a state or municipality openly flouts it? The so-called "sanctuary cities" have no more legal standing to violate immigration law than the Democrats in the south had to violate civil rights laws.
