I can’t believe what a nightmare the Republicans haven’t themselves into with these candidates. Obama hasn’t even begun his full frontal attack and the Republicans are pitiful. I pray the majority of Americans, especially independents who will be necessary to swing the vote, see that obama is worse than these Republican nitwits and hold their nose and vote for whoever ends up being nominated. I held my nose last time and voted for McCain vs. obama, however, i feel the same twinge coming over me, the only difference being the devil himself needs to be voted out of office. A true conservative has yet to surface; and RR is long gone and there’s no one close to him. America will go on limping even if the Republicans win in November, but the pressure has to be on them at ever level in order to force the necessary change or the slide down the slope of socialism and the dream of America will continue to wither. I can’t believe what we’re leaving our kids and grandkids. It’s more than nauseating, it is treason. America, you out there, are you going to wake up anytime soon? Do you care enough?
What I come back is the question: can Romney be any weaker than McCain was in 2008 — in other words, are there people who voted for McCain in 2008 who see something in Obama’s job performance that merits a change of vote?
In November 2008, many folks without strong policy preferences bought Obama’s whole black-kid-of-a-single-mother-made-good thing as an opportunity to cast a (self?)-validating history-making vote; other people of good will could seriously conclude that Obama was more competent to navigate the global financial crisis than old and out of touch McCain and unsophisticated Palin. Nobody’s going to cast a toss-up vote Obama’s way in order to re-”make history.” There’s no global financial crisis (yet!) for 2012, and Romney will cede no ground on financial and economic competence to Obama to anyone who regards government’s role in the economy to go beyond taxing the mean rich guys for the benefit of the less fortunate.
May I go out on a limb here? I think the Republican Party IS the third party because it no longer represents those who thoroughly oppose LIBERALISM. And, it hasn't for some time (Dole, Bush I, Bush II, McCain, McRomney, etc).
I hope Sarah does something unthinkable and runs as the Real Republican. Yes, beyond the norm, outside the box, but not heretical. Ask yourself this: "Has my party (Republican) left me?" Reagan felt that way about the Democrats, didn't he? So, he left them and the rest was history.
But is there time to mount an effective campaign against the biggest Marxist ever to "occupy" the White House? With money and volunteers, anything is possible (ask ACORN and any Chicago politician).
'08 was the last time I go to the polls holding my nose and this time, I refuse to carry a barf bag to vote for Romney. What to do?
If you do view Sarah's speech remember, she's everything the media has said about her: dimwit, slutty, stupid, uninspiring, hated by more people than any other politician. And then, watch the audience's response to her.
This mother from Alaska with five kids gets it. Should she run as the Real Republican, perhaps as the TEA Party candidate, she'd get my vote. And, I could vote without the clothespin or airsickness bag. A refreshing change, no?
I think that you--unfortunately--know the answer.
Enough might if they were informed, but the MSM controls those levers and it does not appear that enough people just give a damn about the future of this country to seek out the information they need.
I feel extremely sorry for those of you who have children and grandchildren. I really, really do.
First of all, what does being a lawyer have anything to do with it?
Second, the republicans are doing every thing they can to get obama re-elected just like they did to get him elected the first time.
