The reality is Romney will be the nominee in 2012 whether conservatives want him to be or not. I like Newt, but we all know he's had one too many wives to be president and has a hard time keeping his mouth shut. Romney will sit back for the next couple of months and let Newt self-destruct like Bachman, Perry, and Cain before him. Furthermore, Romney's machine is miles ahead of anything Newt can put together before January.

Obama v. Romney in 2012 and may Romney win!
