You vote for ?
Who wouldn't you vote for ?
If Mitt (Mutt) Romney (Rumnuts) runs against King Obama, I will be voting for King Obama. I refuse to vote for another criminal, another liar for "president."
Why replace the liar already in the Outhouse with a new liar ?
.... I can't think of any good reasons. One lying manipulator ... another lying manipulator... there's no good reason to vote for Mutt.
Anybody but Mutt or Barack for me
How 'bout you ?

to live is to suffer-Fritz lang
It is a case of "the devil you know". Also a gop congress limits the amount of damage Obama can do.
I'd vote for Ron Paul. At this point, that might be it.
Romney - used car salesman, no principles
Bachman - bat shit crazy
Cain - inexperienced, and bat shit crazy
Newt - uh if people want to vote for a guy who had to step down in the first place for numerous ethics violations...be my guest
Santorum - lol, I'm from Pa. He couldn't win an election against a demmy who barely campaigned against him. Everyone here hated him...right and left
Pawlenty - doesn't look like a commander in chief to me, but I haven't ruled him out
I'd also vote for Ron Paul, but I highly doubt he'll get the nomination. Americans want "looks and charisma" over common sense and decency. That's part of what is going wrong in this country.
Romney - used car salesman, no principles, typical lying politician
Bachman - Very good. No, she's not what you call "bat shit crazy," but she's female and Americans probably aren't ready for a female president.
Cain - He is not "inexperienced," or "bat shit crazy." I'd give him my vote. He probably won't get the nomination, Americans want "looks and charisma" over common sense and decency.
Newt the GOPAC tick, hell no, he is "bat shit crazy," in some creepy ways.
- Romney - The moderate of the group. Won't appeal to the stark right, but just might be reasoned enough to pull in disaffected liberals and independents.
- Bachman - VERRRRRRRRYYYYYY Interesting ... to quote Arte Johnson. Until I saw her perform last night, would not have given her a snowball's chance: Her stock may well rise but enough to grab the independents?
- Cain - Makes a lot of sense but isn't a politician: Does the GOP really want to promote him to the head of the line without some seasoning? I like what he says but I'm not sure whether or not he can pull it off.
- Newt - Definitely one of my top candidates: I've wanted to hear him declare for a long time. However, his top staff abandoned him just last week: We HAVE to want to know why and whether it really is "because he's difficult to handle" (which I doubt as THE reason).
- Santorum - He's a politician. That is a negative in my book. He's won against a few democrats in a democrat area ... but I don't really know anything that differentiates him from others so another "remains to be seen."
- Pawlenty - Like what he's done and what he said last night, but he was stiff like he had a misplaced popsicle stick. I really wanted him to declare because I like what little I know of his work in Minnesota ... but remains to be seen if he can win over voters.
- Ron Paul - Can't win: His own party has marginalized him. That said, however, he showed a lot of spark last night so MAYBE he can pull it out ... but I'm doubting it at this point.
That's all for now.
Cain went off the deep end with his sharia law boogyman and litmus tests for muslims.
Today it is warranted.
Lawmaking has become a criminal enterprise and it needs to come to a stop if we want to keep what we know of as a country called America.
There's no such thing as "gay marriage" and there never will be
Calling a car a bowl of oatmeal will never make it a bowl of oatmeal you see ?
That there are enough people in America to be confused about such things is only another sign of problems to come. I didn't even watch the "debates," it's too early for this crap. I'm not sure why she would even bring such a nonsensical subject up :rolleyes:
Romney and Gingrich both have the same problem...they've been "institutionalized" and I'd be loathe to count on either one. Both have a tendency to gravitate toward whatever "principles" are most politically expedient at any given time.
Santorum just strikes me as a dead fish. He really didn't show any true passion for leadership.
Pawlenty is a bit more focused than the others but doesn't seem to have enough backbone to really stand effectively on his principles.
Bachman, Paul and Cain struck me as being the most resolute and the most likely to stick to their guns when the flak starts flying. Paul is a good bit more isolationist than I like. Cain is solid but he's definitely not a politician and hasn't yet acclimated himself to that landscape. Bachman is also a bit "green" but appears to have more "upside" than the other candidates.
I wouldn't hesitate to vote for any of the 7 that debated last night if Obama was the opponent but Romney or Santorum would be my last choice.
On the lies and deception, every politician who has ever held any kind of office lies 40% of the time. 10% of the time they tell the truth. Usually seriously obvious things like, "Health care is expensive." but that is about as much truth as you get out of them. The other 50% are only telling portions of the truth that support their claims and ignoring the multitude of stuff that debunks it.
Gingrich is done. Stick a fork in him. He'll never be nominated. I mean the guy's own staff kinda fired him. Santorum and Pawlenty simply do not have the juice. Obama would cut them to pieces in the debates over and over again and they are too far right for those in the middle.
Paul - Cool guy. I like him but he goes way to far on some things but I do believe that his heart is in the right place. He is just a little out of touch with the mainstream and his son is kind of a whack job so I doubt we will ever see any of the Paul dynasty ever make it to the oval office.
Cain - Relative unknown and many republicans in this country do not like black people (just a fact it--is actually a fairly sizable demographic for the right). Look what they did to Colon Powell with the Iraq war scandal. They hung him out to dry.
Bachman is a Tea Bagger parasite. She'll never see the oval office. Ever. No Tea Bagger will ever become president. Ever. America is not THAT stupid.....I hope.
2. True enough. Nothing says smaller government than expanding the powers of the federal government to overturn state sovereignty. I guess you agree with Roe V. Wade, because in essence its the same thing. As for me, I will support the states to make up their own minds about state issued licenses, as was intended by the constitution.
3. She brought it up because she was asked. They all were. They are mostly in lock step on economic issues. All want lower taxes, less government regulation, repeal Obamacare, serious entitlement reform (though Paul seems to be the only one willing to take on the sacred cow of the military industrial complex). So its far to ask questions about social issues so they can distinguish themselves from one another.
