@Cycloptichorn,
I agree; Mitt is very secretive about everything, and he's not about to change his character.

He reveals all the flaws of his character when he opens his mouth, and that will also continue until November.

@cicerone imposter,
Here's the latest news on Obama vs Romney.

Quote:
Romney and Obama Are in a Tight Contest, Poll Finds
By DALIA SUSSMAN
Mitt Romney has solidified support within his party for the presidential nomination after Rick Santorum’s exit from the race, but is locked in a tight race with President Obama as attention turns to the general election phase of the campaign, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll finds.

Registered voters are evenly split between Mr. Romney and Mr. Obama. The poll finds 46 percent support Mr. Obama, while as many prefer Mr. Romney. Last month’s Times/CBS News poll also showed a close race, with 47 percent supporting Mr. Obama and 44 percent Mr. Romney.


Since those favoring Romney is based on voting out Obama, I just wonder how successful that will turn out in November?

******
On another issue, the Republicans are trying to cut food stamps to save money for our military. I wonder how many registered Republicans are living on food stamps? I'm sure they'll vote for their own party members to starve to death.

@ossobuco,
Yes, RJB. Have a quick and full recovery. As far as your value to A2K is concerned you're too big to fail.

Paul's quitting the active campaigning:

Ron Paul just called it quits — sort of.

In an e-mail to supporters, Mr. Paul said he would no longer actively campaign in states that have not yet held Republican presidential primaries. To do so, he said, “would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have.”

But Mr. Paul made no mention of Mitt Romney, and he did not say he would spend time helping defeat President Obama. Instead, he vowed to continue pursuing a “delegate strategy” that would provide his movement influence at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., this summer.

“I hope all supporters of liberty will remain deeply involved — become delegates, win office and take leadership positions,” he wrote. “I will be right there with you. In the coming days, my campaign leadership will lay out to you our delegate strategy and what you can do to help, so please stay tuned.”

It is probably is a good idea for Paul to scale back his quixotic campaign. He has his fervent supporters and it seems unlikely that spending a bundle of more money will result in many more voters for him.
He seems to have a plan for making "a scene" at the Repub convention. I can't see that happening.

I lost track of how many times Paul has campaigned for President. He never got any traction before and barely got any now. Hopefully this is the last time.

Hmmm... I thought you supported third party candidacies. Or are Paul's ideas just too far out for you?

@snood,
It has to be somebody worth following before they get my support. Most third party candidates have little to offer, in my view. But I keep hoping.
