You all carelessly throw around the idea that Mitt is a RINO, like a member of the Bush-Rove neocon gang. Funny, how come he had the nerve to stand up for Americans on the issue of illegal immigration? I believe Romney is neither RINO nor Establishment. He's himself, and has to have had a very smart group around him to have won the nomination. He DID get the votes he needed despite the wails of the so-called conservatives, who don't seem to mind turning the country over to a candidate who was going to immediately amnesty illegals. Pick one; there were a number of illegal panderers out there.

As readers know, this syndicated column is based out of the Republican-rich "First Coast" of Florida and Jacksonville's Florida Times-Union. Since 2000, I have been polling and analyzing Florida races for broadcast names such as Fox News' Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity, as well as CNN and a host of others. We polled Florida for Politico in 2008 and correctly showed Barack Obama winning by 1 percentage point.

As of now, were I to speak to Mitt Romney (which for most mortals is an impossible feat), I would advise him that touring the state is not enough to beat...
