    Why in the world would I ever vote for Mitt Romney? Oh that's right, I wouldn't.

    Video at link introducing Mitt's 'collaborator and friend'. I fruckin hate politicians.

    Let's not forget that Mitt is a Mormon. The base of the Gop would never allow a Mormon on the ticket for POTUS, so you can stop worrying about having to vote for or against him.

    Good read Zoom.

    I wonder if the folks in MA voted for this dog, much like legalizing gay marriage, or if the Gov and Legislature did this all on their little linesome??

    Doesn't look like Romneycare is working very well. I'm sure Obamacare will mirror it to perfection.

    Why is it only leftists are concerned with Romney's religion. I have yet to hear any conservative make an issue out of it.
    Why are leftists so prejudiced about someone's religion?

    No, Romney is not a Republican outside of MA. Like Giuliani his candidacy will be a disaster of McCain proportions.

    History is the proof. Romney was the best candidate the GOP had in 2008 to address the declining economy and impending recession due to his business experience. Instead, they put a war hero and Caribou Barbie on the ticket. YOU explain it...

    And you, a known ignorant partisan hack, are qualified to say who the best GOP candidate is because????
    fwiw, McCain was the darling of the Left, the maverick who challenged GOP orthodoxy. Right up until he ran against THE ONE.
    And the recession started after the primaries.

    But why do you hate Mormons?

    I don't. In fact, so far...I LOVE the field of GOP candidates, Mitt, The Donald and Caribou Barbie. You must be so proud...

    Why do Americans choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America ?

    Because they won't let us have a field of 50.
    The chances are too good that a honest person would sneak in there.

    It's called "the news media." It helps to remember what happened too. Remember that McCain suspended his campaign after the primaries to deal with the crisis? You remember that, right?

    There are two Great Things about RomeneyCare:

    - Even the liberals in MA hate it.
    - The Obama Administration keeps using it as a justification for ObamaCare.

    The more the Obamanoids associate the Truly Horrible RomenyCare with ObamaCare, more people will have a chance to grok the premonition of what a Epic Fail ObamaCare will be.

    How to get the news out to all???

    50 days to see a doctor in Boston…Is Massachusetts’ universal coverage laws the cause?
    June 9, 2009 in Current Events, Health Insurance, Supply of Medical Services, Wait Times
    From the USA Today, here are the wait times to see a doctor in the following cities:
    • Boston: 49.6
    • Philadelphia: 27
    • Los Angeles: 24.2
    • Houston: 23.4
    • Washington, D.C.: 22.6
    • San Diego 20.2
    • Minneapolis: 19.8
    • Dallas: 19.2
    • New York: 19.2
    • Denver: 15.4 days
    • Miami: 15.4 days
    The first thing that jumps out from these numbers is that Boston has by far the longest wait to see a doctor. Is this caused by the universal health coverage enacted in Massachusetts? The answer is maybe. Physician supply adjusts slowly (i.e., it takes a long time to finish med school). On the other hand, Massachusetts decision to increase insurance coverage lead to a spike in the demand for medical services. Thus, universal health care may have caused the run up in wait times, …

    Boe....what do you make of the House GOP not going after ObamaCare in the 'compromise'?

    It may just be a case of wishes getting in the way of insight, but I sense that any candidate will beat Obama. While his personals remain high, he does not do well on polls on specific policies.....

    and I'm thinking that even the polls on personal may suffer from the Bradley Effect.

    Here's hoping.

    I'm okay with it. The CR Fracas was a delaying tactic for the Dems. They'd love to keep the focus on snipping a few billion here and there. And there is no way in Hell that Obama was going to cave on ObamaCare right now. It's best to have the CR Fracas at an end. Making the ObamaCare rider a dealbreaker would just play into the Dems' avoidance scheme.

    The real battles are the Debt Ceiling and the Ryan Budget Proposal, with a focus on cutting $Ts instead of $Bs.

    The added benefit of getting beyond the CR is that the dialogue has changed. We are no longer discussing how much of an additional Stimulus package to spend. Instead, the debate is about How Much To Cut.

    That is Change I Can Believe In. Now the GOP needs to deliver.

    My prediction: We will most likely have a stalemate of flatlined spending until 2012 when there is an opportunity to get rid of Obama and takeover the Senate (although I would be thrilled to be proven wrong by seeing the Ryan Plan put into effect).
