    I have to say that this article makes some good points. Four more years of Obama might not be as bad as 4 to 8 years of Romney.

    No.

    There needs to be a single-payer healthcare program allowing health insurance to go back to being actual insurance again, supplemental insurance you rarely if ever use.

    True. The republican nominee in 2016 will be the next president. That won’t be the case if Ryan is the nominee, however.

    The first, most important, and most difficult step toward establishing stability and consistency in the GOP is to isolate and render irrelevant the social conservatives and radial right, particularly with a Nation becoming more culturally, ethnically, and racial diverse.

    Romney is not the best choice, but better than Obama. I don't know that the damage done after 8 years of Obama could be undone.

    Cain was the best choice. The media was brutal with him while leaving Romney alone for the most part. They went after the other candidates one by one and took it easy on Mitt, hoping he'd be the candidate because they felt Obama could beat him.

    Now we're stuck.

    After hearing the remark Obama made when he didn't know the mic was on about being more flexible after the election, I am scared about what he'll do. If he can't talk about his plans now, there is a reason, such as he knows he won't be re-elected if people know what he is really about. The fact that he wants to secure another term before revealing his true plans is reason for alarm.
