I am tired of the reporters who say that GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is not exciting to the voters. I’m a voter who is very excited about Mr. Romney. He is a brilliant, distinguished, gentleman businessman.

Mr. Romney reflects a face of calmness, as opposed to the angry, Stalin-like face of finger-pointing President Obama.

Mr. Romney is intelligent, accomplished, gracious and presidential. We supporters are waiting to display our excitement until after his undercutting Republican competition has disappeared. We do not want premature balloting. We do not want Mr. Obama to make him shoot his best shot until we are ready. We will elect Mr. Romney when the time is ripe. In the words of Prince Hamlet: “There’s a special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, ‘tis not to come. If it be not to come, it will be now. If it be not now, yet it will come - the readiness is all.”

Mr. Romney is all about getting ready. Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich are his falling sparrows.
