Poll: What Do You Think of Romney?

The former Massachusetts governor won Iowa, New Hampshire.

Oh, the weary road of the front-runner.

Mitt Romney, who has won both Iowa and New Hampshire in the race to the August nomination, said he’s suffering “envy-oriented attacks” from his rivals following his early winning streak.

Romney won 40 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s New Hampshire primaries, followed by Rep. Ron Paul and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, with 23 and 17 percent respectively, according to CBS News.

Various news outlets are reporting that Romney’s opponents are focusing on his experience at Bain Capital. In South Carolina Tuesday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry compared the private equity firm to “vultures.”

He told a retiree community in South Carolina that business deals undertaken at Romney’s firm have resulted in job losses, according to the Huffington Post

The Washington Post is reporting that Romney says these attacks actually highlight his business experience in a time the economy needs help.

Baltimore County Republican Central Committee Chairman Steve Kolbe is among those locally supporting Romney. Kolbe was in New Hampshire last week for business and said he found Romney supporters wherever he went.

The central committee is not endorsing candidates at this time, but Kolbe said it is united behind unseating the current Democratic leadership.

No Republican meets the needs of most people. I'm afraid of their exclusive religious views, their guns for everyone view, and their lack of compassion for poor people's medical and educational needs.

So what is your solution? Throw money at problems at the expense of taxing the middle class? Allow murderers, rapists etc. to continue to walk after minimal sentences? Infringe on first ammendment freedom of religion just because you don't agree. Why don't you go to the Owings Mills Wal-Mart and be discriminated against for being white while you watch those with the Gucci purses paying with food stamps as they talk on their i-pods? But yes we need to help them even more!!!! Why not take those that are able to work and put them to work through free-enterprise not subsidies!
