In a case of the GOP elites thinking they know what's best for their voters more than the voters themselves, the endorsements of Mitt Romney are piling up nearly as quickly as the attacks on Newt Gingrich.
The most recent Gallup Poll of Republican voters shows Gingrich with a lead over Romney, 32%-24%. That isn't stopping the Drudge Report, Fox News, or other "right-wing" publishers and aggregators from trying to repeat the mistake they made with Bob Dole and John McCain in recent elections.
There are many indicators that Mitt Romney cannot beat Obama, but arguably the most compelling is his history of flipping and flopping depending on which direction is currently serving his purposes.
Despite the endorsement of Ron Paul at the end of the video below, it's the Obama campaign that is happiest about the prospects of going up against Romney. As Charlie Rose points out in a report about Romney’s rise Florida, “It is said in Chicago where they are running the Obama campaign that they’re so giddy that they want to run naked in Millennium Park.”
Watching this video, it's easy to see why.
