    and last you had McCain...
    Before him Bush...

    I think it's pretty telling that we'll never elect a "staunch" Conservative. :razz:

    A staunch conservative is no more likely to win than a far left wing candidate. Because the fact remains that American is a centerist nation. We don't do 'far' on either side.... and, despite being a conservative, I think that's great.

    Did you hear that?

    That was the sound of yet another GOP pundit supressing the urge to vomit while expressing support for Romney.

    Excellent. This comment recognizes that the majority of Americans are capable, thinking people who, when exposed to factual information, make independent decisions.

    Me too, but I still think it's bullshit the way Obama was portrayed as some deep leftist outsider when it appeared to me, and still does, that he was a centerist also all along.

    (of course when we say "centerist" they still have a predominant lean, it's just not extreme).

    Of course he was. A president that is too far right or left can't reward all the interests that got him there without blowing his cover.

    I consider myself a pragmatist more than a conservative. I look for the most pragmatic solution and I go with that. So I'm on the left on some issues, on the right on others.

    My problem with Romney isn't his idealogy. I mean, he's had a bunch of them over the last few years, I'm sure I can find one I agree with. :razz:

    My problem with him is that he belongs to a cult that I utterly despise.

    My problem with him is that he has sleazy business practices that screws working folks like me.

    My problem with him is that he has no problem race-baiting when he wants to gain a political advantage.

    So, yeah, even though I've voted Republican in every election since 1980, I will vote Democrat rather than even take the chance this puke will be Presdient.

    And a corrolary to my previous post, my problem with Obama is not that he's a leftist or a centrist, but that he's INCOMPETENT!

    He couldn't even get a centrist agenda passed when he had an 80 seat majority in the HOuse and a filibuster proof senate. He put the priorities in the wrong places, he's fumbled one operation after another, he squandered his political capital.

    So Romney is a sleazy cultist and Obama is an incompetent Boob.

    Some choice.

    Third Party, anyone?

    I understand your sentiments. I saw this video of him the other day saying he'd Nationalize Romneycare a few years back, and now his tone is that he'd never do such a thing but leave it up to the States.

    He's like any other Politician though. Licks his finger, sticks it in the air, and rolls with it.

    Everyone keeps saying that, but when your fillibuster "proof" number includes Joe Lieberman, it's not fillibuster proof.

    I've heard this man (Lieberman) sucking Sean Hannity's toes for the last 5-6 years now. He's a rat in rat's clothing.
