Michigan Is High Noon For Romney and Santorum [Video]

This could be the beginning of the end for Mitt Romney. From the beginning of this Presidential Primary season it has been established that in order for Romney to win the Primary and to be able to beat President Obama in 2012 he would have to prove that he could get people excited enough to vote for him.

So not happening!

Most polls have challenger Rick Santorum either tied with or ahead of Romney in Michigan. Michigan is a pretty significant state for Romney. He was born there. His father served three terms as governor there. He won it in 2008 against John McCain.

Now he is losing the State and it may be high noon for the Romney Campaign. Why is that?

Romney has had what the pundits are calling an enthusiasm gap. People will vote for him but they aren’t excited to do it. Romney has been running for President since 2008. The rest of the field has not. That is why when Rick Perry joined the pack Republicans were EXCITED. Then they were excited for Herman Cain. Then they were excited for Newt Gingrich. Now they are excited for Rick Santorum.

When you read between the lines it can easily be shown that what people are getting excited for over and over again is that there may just be a Republican out there who can beat Romney and actually challenge President Obama.

Romney is proving more and more what his critics all fear. That Romney and Obama are basically the same person. Yes they may disagree on certain policy questions, but in the end they are the same. They are both ambitious, they both really want to be President and they will both basically say anything to get elected.

For proof of the last point one need to look so far as Romney’s latest attacks against Santorum. Romney, the pro gun control, pro life, romneycare signing liberal from Massachusetts is saying that Rick Santorum is not a true conservative.

Obama couldn’t have said it better himself.

What is the difference between Romney, Santorum and Obama
