Obama's re-election would be a catastrophe for the limits of government, the possibilities of freedom and traditional American values, and Ingraham knows it.

Unfortunately, Bill Kristol isn't the only frustrated Obama critic inadvertently helping him by complaining about Mitt Romney. See "Mitt Romney is better off ignoring Bill Kristol's advice" (www.renewamerica.com/columns/gaynor/120507).

Matthew 7:3: "And why behold you the mote that is in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye?" American King James version of the Bible.

To nitpick is to be concerned with or find fault with insignificant details.

The upcoming presidential election is much too important for nitpicking and second guessing, and the upcoming Congressional elections are critical to reversing the damage inflicted in the Age of Obama.

The only alternative to Obama is Romney, not Santorum, or Gingrich, or anyone else.

Deal with it.

What is significant is whether Romney replaces Obama as President of the United States, not campaign detail.

Message for those who would make the perfect the enemy of the good: Get over it. Stop harping about everything from,how many public events Romney does each day to his decision to visit Israel to how many years of tax returns he produces and start looking into how Obama conned most voters in 2008.

The stakes are much too high to be looking to 2016 and putting ourselves first.

The winner of the 2012 presidential election will be either President Obama or Mitt Romney.

Romney beat all the other Republican presidential hopefuls and he did it without the endorsement of such conservatives as Bill Kristol and Laura Ingraham. They should realize that he's entitled to run his own campaign and enormously preferable to Obama.

These days Ingraham is saying that the upcoming election is an all hands of deck election.

About that, she's right.

Obama's re-election would be a catastrophe for the limits of government, the possibilities of freedom and traditional American values, and Ingraham knows it.

Unfortunately, Ingraham's ery noticeably upset that Romney is not conducting his presidential campaign the way she wants him to and publicly venting about it. In addition, she's worried that if he loses, she'll be blamed.

JFK was right: "Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan."

Forget about credit or blame and positioning to lose and focus on winning!

If Romney wins, there will be those who will say that he could have won bigger if only he'd heeded their advice.

If Romney loses, America loses and everyone who knows or should know that the upcoming presidential election will be to blame, Ingraham included.

Railing against Romney for not letting you micromanage his campaign is not helpful.

Election a Congress that would support Romney would be very helpful.

Exchange that there are two choices, attack Obama and back Romney.

Focus on why Obama is unfit and stop whining.
