    Now that we have been treated to a series of GOP candidates' debates, as well as the subsequent analysis of each, which GOP candidate do you prefer, and why?

    If you prefer Obama for a second term, why?

    Inquiring mind would like to know.

    I give Obama an "A" for managing the ME, using drones, killing AQ, etc.
    then he gets an "F" for managing the economy and wasting so much time and money on Obamacare

    The dems talk a good game, save SS & Medicare, etc., but have no clue how to actually balance a Budget.

    BO needs to actually accomplish something. Hell, when a suck-up leg thriller like Chris Matthews critiques BO for not managing better, you know its bad.

    Ron Paul because he is the only candidate serious about taking an economic u-turn and revitalizing the US middle class.

    Newt because he has a firm grasp on what needs to be done and his record of accomplishments show that he can get the support needed to get things done.

    I'll give Obama an "A" on international affairs. I'll give him a "B-" on domestic affairs.

    Hopefully in the second term he treats Republicans as the adversaries they are...

    There should be no "consenus" with them. And he should leverage everything. Take lessons from both FDR and Truman. Throw in some LBJ.

    Don't try for "friendship". He won't get any.

    Newt is probably the only one I could stomach voting for. The rest of them just seem to be "good little Republicans" and I am so sick of both parties that I won't be voting for a "good little party member" of either party.

    The funny thing is that Newt is sure to prove to be just that if he were to win the nomination.

    Me? I think we should draft the President rather than elect him/her. Anyone who actually wants the job is automatically ineligible for the draft.

    I don't know the story so I am not sure what you are trying to say here.

    And in case you mean what I think you mean... I actually want the job ;) so I'm not eligible. :lol:

    Johnson, Paul, maybe Huntsman - if any of the other Republicans are nominated, I'll probably vote Libertarian.
