    I wish we had had Romney at the helm during 2009 because he would have prioritized economic recovery and not been sidetracked like Obama was. But hopefully we'll get him now. He's our best hope for good change.









    That is all.

    Willard's been running for years. This will be his swan song.

    Republicans did have Romney in 2008 and chose McCan't instead ..... that is all.

    Unfortunately, you are right. I personally never liked McCain. But nobody was stopping the O train in 2008. Alas, though, we have 4 years of complete incompetency that we've been force fed and had to digest, so the country just might be in for a change... that is all.

    You had Romney in 2008, and McCain didn't pick him after looking at his tax returns!!!

    It's been good for the country to see what the democrats can't do.

    With the country headed towards another recession (I can't wait to hear who they blame this one on !), we'll see just how stupid America really is.

    Romney could have fought it out and might have pulled it off. But when that appreciable bloc of Huckabee voters decided they'd rather throw their support to the non-conservative McCain than get past their reservations about voting for a Mormon, Romney graciously stepped aside to help unify the party rather than prolonging the chaos.

    I was proud of him and very disappointed at the same time.


    Nominating McCain was definitely cutting off our collective nose to spite our face.

    I really didn't matter. The GOP was toxic in 2008. Given the wars and the mess Bush had created, we deserved to lose. I am just sorry we didn't have Hillary on the other side. We might actually have an economy worth talking about (in positive terms) now.

    Instead, we got Hope And Change (you know...after the Hope....all you have in some Change), was the lie of the day.

    I more or less agree.

    Hillary would also have been better at prioritizing our national needs than Obama.




    Hmmm, no, on 2nd thought I do think it could have made a difference if we had Romney on the ticket. When the economy totally started to tank in the Fall, it is possible that having Romney on the ticket could have made the difference. McCain was totally the wrong person at the time. The nation might have preferred Romney's business experience to Obama's non-experience at that point.

    The NATION will continue to exist, regardless of which man is elected. Be it Romney, we will have four years of idiotic critiques of the LDS church; many forget Reid is also LDS. From MUSLIM TO MORMAN, "information overload" keeps obscuring necessary INFORMATION.
