    Apparently, despite the best efforts of the rightwingnuts, the president still appears to be in good shape for 2012. And while I am not much on the predictive value of a poll taken two years before an election, I think it's time to start responding to the losers who keep talking about how they've already somehow destroyed him politically.

    my favorite is the numbers versus palin in bold...

    I never understood how so called conservatives could support Romney. I never would even consider voting for him until he admits what an enormous fuck up the Assachusetts health care system became under his watch. He won't do that and I probably still wouldn't vote for him if he did.

    He did the right thing for the people of his state. Other states should do likewise. The federal government should not be forcing healthcare onto the entire population. It's a state issue.

    And the "right" thing resulted in premiums in Assachusetts rising 30% faster than the rest of the country. and nearly put the state's 3 biggest non profit insurance providers out of business. Yeah real good for the state.

    No government at any level should be forcing people to buy health insurance.

    What about Jimmy Carter vs Romney?

    There's just as much chance of that being the ballot as there is Obama.

    It will be impossible to destroy him politically when the liberal controlled media twists the truth and the casual left wing population doesn't bother to spend the time to see what this
    administration does.

    The left will just put their trust in the MSNBC crowd that pushes out the WH talking points and once again they will get caught up in the catchy phrases that the media consultants come up with.

    It's scary when people who voted for Obama were given quotes from President Bush,Sarah Palin,John McCain,Rush Limbaugh and others on the right,and they were told President Obama had said it....They totally agreed with those comments...they had no idea
    that others had made those statements.These are the people who have the power to vote
    for our leaders. :(

    I disagree that it's a state issue because the economics of it make it necessary for the feds to interject. But I do agree that we'd be better off if people did what was right for their constituents (which is what they're supposed to do) and not grandstand and try to create dissent.

    Someone needs to tell the half governor there's no such thing as "pro america parts of the country"

    i'm not sure why real conservatives wouldn't support romney. he's smart economically and he stays out of people's personal business.

    i figure that's exactly what 'conservatives' should be doing.

    unlike the reactionaries and right wing religious activists who like to call themselves 'conservative'.
