Rick Santorum’s withdrawal from the 2012 presidential race has most Republicans concluding that Mitt Romney will be the nominee.

And John Gizzi expects that conservatives will embrace Romney because they can’t stomach the thought of another Obama term.  He also expects Romney to choose a conservative running mate.

“This election will be about Romney versus the prospect of Obama being president for 4 more years.

“Anyone with doubts about the Republican nominee will be cured of that once they start looking at that,” Gizzi told WND.

Gizzi also explains why he believes President Obama is being dishonest in claiming President Reagan would have supported the “Buffett Rule” and why Romney may be able to make progress with female voters by hammering Obama’s economic record with respect to women.

Gizzi also shares a little known political anecdote about the late news legend Mike Wallace.
