    should Obama thank the evangelicals for their bigotry?

    They may stay home because they won't support a Mormon.

    His vp pick should he win the nomination will solidify the base. I see him picking a hard right conservative.

    Ed Rollins said last night that over 20% of evangelicals will not vote for Romney because he is a Mormon. That's amazing.

    I don't like Romney..and I don't plan to vote for him. But he's never injected his religion into the political debates or conversation. It should not be a factor.

    If I was Obama, I'd begin to look for someplace to live cause he ain't going to be living in Washington, DC too much longer.

    Funny you should say that. I saw a republican and democratic pudit suggesting that he might be thinking about Herman Cain. Given his behavior toward Cain, that's not so farfetched. It would be a more exciting ticket then say, Romney/Pawlenty..but not as safe.

    This. I don't see it as completely out of the realm of possibility that Romney would pick Bachmann or someone as far tot he right as her for a Veep.

    The problem with that strategy though is that even with a Veep specifically picked to motivate the base, McCain had at best lukewarm support. I'm thinking that the GOP is so strongly motivated by defeating Obama that Romney would do a little better, but that could be his biggest weakness.

    Most exciting things are not safe.

    Ed Rollins, Bachmann's campaign manager..why ever would he say that? :lol:


    Link?


    Mostly the only people I ever see claiming that lately are Democrats...



    So if it came true in 2012, that's 20% of what, 20% ?

    They definitely won't be voting for Obama, so.....
