    Did you ever wonder why Democrats are always asking about who will be the Republican candidate for President in 2012?

    Why they harp on Sarah Palin or any Republican that pokes out from the pack.

    Ya me too..?

    My guess is they want to distract from the dismal failures of a Democratic Controlled Congress and Obama. They can't face reality.

    Also, after Bush they need a new chew toy.

    The reason is simple

    Because it is blatantly obvious that the Republicans lack any viable candidates. As much as the Republicans attack President Obama and try to sidetrack initiatives, their bottom line is that they must ultimately appear in a voting booth and expect someone to vote the Republican line.

    Republicans have no candidates, no message and no funding

    All they have is NO

    They are scared. They are 1st afraid that Obama won't get them their liberal utopia before 2012 and then they worry that someones dead dog will beat him in the election.

    Well, if the economy stays in the dump, then President Obama will probably be a single term president. If the economy is just up a little, a strong Republican candidate might give him a good run. If the economy is doing well, then President Obama will be a two term president.

    If we get a real Health Care bill with a public option, and a strong economy, you just as well run Palin, and get it out of your system. Then you can run a serious candidate in 2016.

    Tell us Lumps, who do YOU want to run on the Republican Ticket for 2012, and why that person?

    Personally I think it's too soon to worry about 2012. I believe 2010 will be quite interesting.

    Quite correct - 2010 is the big battle right now, and itself will greatly impact 2012.

    Interestingly enough, large Republican gains in 2010 might very well be among Obama's best means of getting re-elected in 2012...

    If that true, why do you care? Seems you should be working on your own problems.

    The best way to avoid faults is to find them in someone or something else.
