    It's pretty clear that the only thing Obama likes more than killing the US Space Program and permanent unemployment for a large section of the population would be to run against Newt in 2012.

    Obama's got a war chest of $1 billion to run the most negative, nastiest campaign in American history (ironically, $1billion is about the amount that the financial architect of the Failed Stimulus, Jon Corzine, apparently took from his clients).

    That's how we got Juan McCain as candidate in 08.

    It's important that you, the real Americans, participate in the primary and not let Progressives pick our candidate for us again

    Newt will destroy the Republican party, I am oddly ok with him getting the nomination over Mitt for that reason.

    Oh I think REAL Americans are going to vote in the GOP primary this year. But you're right the LIBERALS took over the Democrat primary in 2008 and managed to kick the best candidate (Hillary Clinton) to the curb to elect an economic moron.

    Is that how you saw it? I saw America reject anyone who had voted for the Iraq invasion.

    Then they need to consolidate the dates of each States primary. By the time it reaches here its usually over.

    Democrat consultant Pat Caddel (Carter) and Democrat pollster and consultant Doug Schoen asked Obama to do the right thing and step aside to allow HRC to run as Democrat candidate. Schoen also said the two if them are considering making a public call for a Democrat primary leading up to the convention. Maybe we'll get a smoke filled room.

    This is one reason why every state should have CLOSED Primaries. In Illinois you are REQUIRED to declare your party when voting in a Primary election. Once you do that you are AUTOMATICALLY a member of that state political party for the next two years.

    The Obama administration wants to run against Romney. They're stupid for it. Romney would have the best chance of defeating Obama because he has the most appeal to independent and Democratic swing voters. But Obama wants Romney. Perhaps more savvy individuals prefer to see Newt win the nomination. This is probably the most preferable option for those who support Obama. Newt is the safest bet. He's not likely to be elected in the GE, but in case he his he won't be horrible at the job. By contrast, Perry is a bit less likely to be elected in a GE, but he'd be much less capable than Newt at the job.

    Y'all realize there haven't been any Republican primaries yet, right?
