    Save the anybody but Obama BS. It doesn't really work that way.

    The RWers will lap it up, however, Independents and the rest won't.

    Do you believe you need a very extreme RW candidate to topple Obama?

    OR someone a bit right of center who has a more serious chance to bring parties and people together to get some good stuff done?

    What say you?

    Elections are won in the middle. The later they learn that the better.
    Its remarkable just how unsophisticated the supposed "experts" appear to be. Then again, once Romney or Huntsman get the nomination, I think you'll see Rabbi and all of the other wing nuts swallow what little manhood they have and endorse whomever the nominee is. They're all talk and their "principles" are circumstantial.

    Someone who is honest (yes I know how hard that is to come by)

    Someone who is actually going to cut spending and shrink the Federal Government.

    Someone who is going to restore the balance between the Federal government, the People, and the States.

    Someone who will give up power voluntarily.

    We are in a game and most of us are in the minors.

    It's incredible that no one can see the distractions.

    If lives weren't in the balance, we might be able to consider this a game. But they are.

    Those on the right want a TRUE alternative to business as usual.

    We want President Obama put out to pasture, but not to be replaced by some Dem-lite version of all the crap he stands for.

    Of course we want a nominee who can defeat the Nincompoop in Chief. But that is FAR from the only consideration. For again, there's not much point in replacing him with a liberal RINO type who will likely continue us more or less down the same path of failure -- just at a slower rate.

    We need a leader who can drag the Congress along with him and the with the Will of the majority of the American people who want to reverse the damage inflicted by President Obama and the liberal sputterings of the imbecile Congress. We want to fundamentally CHANGE COURSE.

    A President who can and will do that is NOT to be found in the likes of Mitt Romney.

    Would Mitt be a significant improvement over another term of President Obama's leadership? Obviously. But not enough.

    We want a leader who WILL at long last pare down the size and scope of the powers anf the Federal Government and bureaucracy Someone who WILL pay more than fucking lip service to the concept of a Constitutionally LIMITED Government of enumerated powers.

    The odd part is: this sounds like a very tall order. BUT, it damn well shouldn't be.

    If you guys end up with a RINO, you think voting for him will support your overall cause or no?

    G.W. Bush was a moderate right-winger and look were that got us. He was big spender--and not just on wars--but he signed off on 450 billion dollars for a prescription drug entitlement.

    Furthermore--it was moderates and liberals that formed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac policies--that has brought this economy to it's knees.

    The only way to right this country back to sane fiscal policy is to get a real CONSERVATIVE in office.
