Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee, has been mulling another campaign for several months, but his comments Friday marked a clear step forward in his thinking and come amid mounting tensions between the Romney and Bush camps.

  1. I want to know why Mitt Romney did not take Obama to court over his Social Security Number and his birth certificate. The court system says that he is the only one that can do this. They have fined several lawyers that have attempted to do so because they do not have a direct interest. The legal beagles out there will know more. It is on line the results of others trying to challenge on that basis.
