Romney..damaged goods for presidential election.
Anybody but Romney is just as wanted as anybody but Obama for many republicans
After the Iowa caucus it is clear that the Republican electorate in its majority is not thrilled to have Mitt Romney as their presidential candidate, and the search for the non Romney candidate continues with Rick Santorum as the latest beneficiary of this quest.The inevitability of the Romney candidacy continues to be put into question and he is not able to close the deal,no matter how hard some power structure operatives keep forecasting it.the Romney candidacy is like the tropical storm that never becomes a hurricane.And at this point the search does look desperate, after we've seen every other candidate rise and fall, even candidates that never were like Donald Trump enjoyed the advantage of not being named Romney to have their fifteen minutes of fame and lead the republican field of candidates or almost candidates.What also appears to be apparent at this point is that this is a weak field of candidates,with huge vulnerabilities who will face an incumbent president that in theory should have been an easy opponent for the republican candidate but as the primaries go forward is looking more as a formidable adversary when contrasted with republican hopefuls that not only have huge shortcomings in every case but have engaged in brutal character assassination practices against one another providing the Obama camp with hours of video that no doubt will be used in the race for the white house once the kneecapped republican candidate is proclaimed.
So now if both Santorum and Gingrich continue in the race it will ensure Romney's nomination
So after Nevada is over,and Romney's lead continues to expand the only chance of there being any continued opposition to Romney is a unified conservative electorate going forward,it is not likely at this point that either Gingrich or Santorum can defeat Romney , but what is an undeniable fact is that if one of the two doesn't drop out they might as well nominate him now and save useless waste of time,it is problematic because both Gingrich and Santorum think they would have a better choice against Obama, so they feel if they drop out it would benefit Obama's reelection. But in their heart of hearts I think they know this and each one is waiting to see if the other one will drop out.
