Random Observations

Romney's Wealth
It's not that Mittens is rich (JFK and FDR were stinking rich too), it's that he can't seem to open his mouth without sounding arrogant and condescending about it. He never says, "Every car I ever owned has been American made," that sounds patriotic. RomneySpeak is "Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs," sounds like bragging.

Rand Paul for Veep
I, and lots of other people, are convinced that Romney and Ron Paul have negotiated an agreement. Ron will support Mitt by attacking only Mitt's opponents and Romney will elevate Ron's son to a major level on the national stage, the Vice Presidential nomination.

Caricature Studies
It's amazing how all the Republican presidential candidates are campaigning as cartoon caricatures of themselves. Romney is the robot clone of Thurston Howell III and Richie Rich. Santorum is the sex obsessed Puritan who demands a theocracy. Gingrich is the randy man-whore who can't control his emotions. Ron Paul is the crazy old coot who says things like "We are all Austrians now" like anyone can understand what that means. This is not some liberal distortion of them, they are voluntarily doing this to themselves.
