Latest on Mitt Romney--What are your thoughts?
Mitt and McCain are about even in the latest Florida polls. And it looks like Romney is gaining momentum there, even taking the lead in one poll just released by Fox news. That's going to be a big day on Tuesday. Come on Florida--listen to Rush Limbaugh! On a side note, there was an interesting article in the New York Times today about Romney being the most hated by the other Republican candidates. I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts about it.
Here's what one commenter said, and I pretty much agree: "The thing the other presidential candidates dislike about Romney is that he makes them feel inferior. They are used to the same-old, same-old way things have always gotten done in politics, and here comes this new, highly successful and accomplished guy, a business genius. He's squeaky clean, no skeletons in the closet. He's smarter, taller and better looking than they are, has never been divorced, and has a wonderful, adoring family. Turns them green with envy.
Mitt is surging as people get to know him. I think he has a very good chance of becoming our next president, and I believe he will make a really great one. McCain is really not conservative, nor does he have the temperament for leader of the world's sole super power. His hair-trigger temper is a real drawback."
How do you see it?
