Romney Takes Nevada

Obama campaign makes remarks.

Mitt Romney won his second caucus since wowing in Florida.   With 48% of the vote, and an endorsement from Donald Trump, Romney has gained Republican momentum in his bid for the White House.

"This isn't the first time you gave me your vote of confidence, but this time I'm going to take it to the White House", Romney said.

Romney also won Nevada in 2008.  (How many times have you won twice in Vegas?)

Romney's running mates, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Super Tuesday bound, came in with 23% of the Nevada votes, while Rep. Ron Paul gained a jump at 18% over Pennsylvania's Sen. Rick Santorum who managed 11% of the Nevada's votes.

The White House won't speak (at least publicly) about the Republican debates and caucuses, but sure make mention of them in campaign emails.

Here's what one Obama campaign email read last week about Romney's Trump endorsement suggesting they are not impressed, nor amused, by the event at hand:
"Yesterday, Mitt Romney said he was "humbled" to accept Donald Trump's endorsement. Seriously.

Yes, Donald Trump -- birth certificate conspiracy leader -- has decided that Mitt Romney's his guy, and Romney has embraced him without reservation. He made a speech and even sent out a press release welcoming him.

Meanwhile, here's what we're humbled by: 38,830 supporters have donated to the Two-Term Fund."
We can only image what they must the saying (and thinking) about actor/comedienne Rosanne Barr's bid for the Green Party nomination.  Yes, the woman who demolished the National Anthem at the 1990 Super Bowl and wants hemp legalized, is running for president.

Ron Paul, it's time you stepped up your game.

Actually, she does make a little sense in this video. But who, and how many, will actually agree with and take heed of her message?
