    Seriously.
    Think about it. Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said that the U.S. health insurance system isn't working and endorsed replacing it with a pay-as-you-go model that would require people to pay their medical bills out-of-pocket, except in the case of catastrophic, "unanticipated" costs.
    Anyone know how much say, a medical exam with a normal blood screen and maybe a check for one thing specific (say LDL levels for example) would cost? And if you have a family with three kids?
    Then there's his view that ALL contraception is wrong because it is a license to enter a sexual realm that "isn't right"! (apparently, because my wife and I don't want to have nine kids, we're not "right").

    Put just those two things on the air. Then ask the GOP "Is THIS the guy you think can win enough Moderates and Independents to beat Obama?!?!?!

    No frikkin' way.

    But I think Romney is trying SO HARD to be the New & Improved ConservaRomney V.2.1 that's he's afraid to address how Santorum's ultra-conserv social whackjobbery will ruin any chances the GOP has with all but the most faithful Right Wingers.

    The time when the debates "helped prep" Romney have passed. Obama's approval ratings have been rising steadily and this is going to be a tough race - unless Santorum or Gingrich get the nomination - then it's over. Romney needs to get his shet together.

    Because Romney is a turd that is no different than Obama and most of the GOP voters are realizing it.

    It's looking good for Obama in November.

    Barring more political gaffes like the one with the Catholics, an anomolous turn in the economy or the X-Factor, yes it actually looks very good for Obama.

    what a crock of shit....Once the GOP has a nominee the party faithful will support him. The Democrats were split over Obama and Hilary- guess what? After Obama sewed up the nomination, the Hilary supporters supported Obama. The same thing will happen for the GOP. Seriously, what conservative is going to vote for Obama over any of the Republicans?

    Obama is in for a very tough fight, regardless of whom the GOP nominee is.

    Mostly, it's because the U.S. health insurance system isn't working, and we should return a pay as you go model with catastrophic coverage.

    My wife just had a physical with full lab work up to include hormone levels, vitamin and mineral levels, liver function, kidney function, white and red blood cell levels, and a host of other information...$100.

    We pay as you go, with catastrophic care insurance...saved thousands of dollars...we are both damn near 40 and in excellent health.

    I love how you people build fake positions for us and then rail against them. It's so stupid it's getting monotonous. People are immune anymore because you don't control all of the presses anymore. You never will again.

    Romney lost me when he tried to go ultra-conservative, which he is not. As for Sanitorium, he is a joke.
