  •  How is he dangerous? (3+ / 0-)

    I have religious (Southern Baptist) relatives who are very Republican and won't vote for him because of his Mormonism.  Independents don't care for him; he's too slick.  He's probably the easiest of the candidates that we can hope to fight.  Well, Giulliani is even better, but that likely won't happen.

    •  he's telegenic former governor (4+ / 0-)

      and the GOP will rally around theirs, just as we'll rally around Clinton should she get to be the nominee.

      Plus, he's the only one with a record to speak of on healthcare.

      •  You're too forward-thinking for this site! (0+ / 0-)

        And absolutely correct that support will eventually coalesce around whichever candidate the Republicans vote least despicable. The real question is whether they will have enough supporters to hold back the wave our Dem candidate will be riding to the White House. I'm thinking not.

        I'm a bit leery of lending any support to the pond scum that they have dredged from the depths of their candidate pool.

      •  Kos is right (5+ / 0-)

        Remember this, the benefit of boosting Mitt is the same reason we all hate him, he's slippery and insincere.

        If he wins Michigan because of outside votes, he'll use his endless wealth to parlay that into momentum. And he'll continue to blast his opponents non-stop. This will further fragment the republicans as he points out how unacceptable Huck or McCain are on illegal immigration and other issues.

        Romney's a slimeball fueled by pure ambition. The longer he stays in the better. Oh, and he is telegenic but, other than Giuliani, is there any more unlikeable candidate on the right?

        McCain and Huckabee would likely lose but it would be hard, Romney is easy pickins. Low-hanging fruit, if you will.
