Advice for Mitt Romney: Start the General Election Campaign

Obama has already figured out that Romney will be the nominee, it's time for Romney to quit messing with Santorum and Gingrich and focus on the president:
President Obama's administration launched a multi-pronged assault on Mitt Romney's values and foreign policy credentials Sunday, while a fresh set of prominent Republicans rallied behind the GOP front-runner as the odds-on nominee, further signs the general election is overtaking the primary season.

A defiant Rick Santorum outlined plans to leave Wisconsin the day before the state's contest Tuesday, an indication that the conservative favorite may be in retreat, his chances to stop Romney rapidly dwindling.

"I think the chances are overwhelming that (Romney) will be our nominee," Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "It seems to me we're in the final phases of wrapping up this nomination. And most of the members of the Senate Republican conference are either supporting him, or they have the view that I do, that it's time to turn our attention to the fall campaign and begin to make the case against the president of the United States."

Both Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden went after Romney Sunday, underscoring the belief inside Obama's Chicago re-election headquarters that Romney will -- sooner than later -- secure the right to face Obama this fall. Their involvement comes as both sides sharpen their general election strategy, perhaps weeks before the GOP contest formally comes to an end.
I'm not happy about Romney being our nominee, but it is what it is. From this point on he should quit responding to anything Santorum or Gingrich says. They don't matter anymore. They really can't hurt him. He needs to focus on Obama, his idiot sidekick Biden, and the rest of the Star Wars bar scene that runs the government.
