All the biased polls might discourage some not to vote but it won't stop me. I think he wins in spite of the media and the Paulites.

Romney is an Etch-A-Sketch. He just gets shaken and comes up with something new to say depending on the crowd. His campaign manager even admitted the strategy.

Stop giving the GOP a participation trophy. Trophies are for winners.

If Romney loses maybe the Republicans will get themselves a Rocky montage.

As each day passes, more and more people are losing at the game of life. Because of this, they will vote for the candidate that is perceived to give them stuff. Obama and the Dems fit the criteria for this and the Repubs. just don't.

The election will still be close, but Obama is gonna steal it. Ohio is a must win and Obama is ahead there.

The Soviets collapsed thanks to Reaganís military buildup and unwavering resolve.

Reagan was the Great Communicator.

Obama will go down as the Great Divider.

Both are Teflon Presidents.

Reagan was Teflon because while the media hated him, the people loved him so nothing would stick.

Obama is Teflon because the media protects him while 50% of the people despise him.

We need a real choice.
1) That's what I'm saying the continued failure to produce a viable candidate.
2) Wait... is Obama the Social Democrat and Romney is the PRWP, or the other way around?
3) +1000

That's what I'm saying... and yet Miami is always held up as this place full of conservative Latinos... because they're CUBAN!

(I have no idea what that means, but that's what they always say...)

And this is why we should stop accepting the "lesser evil" put forth by the RNC. Only when the Republican Party is rendered moot on the national political stage will there be an opportunity for a new/honest conservative party to take hold.

From today's AP story...

If the election were held today, an Associated Press analysis shows Obama would win at least 271 electoral votes, with likely victories in crucial Ohio and Iowa along with 19 other states and the District of Columbia. Romney would win 23 states for a total of 206.

To oust the Democratic incumbent, Romney would need to take up-for-grabs Florida, Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina, New Hampshire and Virginia, which would put him at 267 votes, and upend Obama in either Ohio or Iowa.

Mitt would have to pull off a miracle.

Republicans seem to be doing the same thing

Florida elections officials said Friday that at least 10 counties have identified suspicious and possibly fraudulent voter registration forms turned in by a firm working for the Republican Party of Florida

I do agree that the Democrats do a better job at voter fraud

The funny thing about it is if Obama wins, unless he locks down the Country like a dictator, the Tea Party will be fired up into a frenzy and make great gains.

It would be the best thing for the Tea Party. Very bad for the Country though.

Obama will end up the most despised President ever if he wins a second term.

I guess this is the new Republican party. We haven't had a REAL Conservative or a candidate that took it to the democRATs and wouldn't let them get away with their usual trash for over 30 years, Reagan. Is there anyone reading this that really thinks that if given the same situation that Reagan would be wiping the floor with Soetero? This guy is a friggin' clown, dumb as a damn post and a bigger liar than Klinton and our candidate is so damn bad that he can beat him. That really says something there. I just don't think the establishment republican party members, the ones that actually RUN the party, have it in them to actually fight. They're content to have an intellectual discourse in a gentlemanly manner and if they lose, well they'll still get to be on nice committees and their Cocktail Party Circuit invites will still be there. They don't like people like us that are conservatives. We embarrass them with the abortion talk, gun stuff, the occasional Birth Certificate questions and demanding the border be controlled. They don't like that and as soon as they get our votes, they are back to their usual selves.

The Romney campaign has to be one of the worst run presidential campaigns I have ever seen and I've been a political follower since my first repub presidential vote for REAGAN. He is NOT going to take it to Soetero. That's just not the way he is or thinks things need to be done. He and his team ought to be totally ashamed to be trailing in this race, it should literally be a walk and if we had a decent candidate that really FIGHTS, it would be. Have you seen Soetero taking his gloves off at ANY time? NO. He doesn't mind one bit about putting an ad out accusing your opponent of being responsible for the death of a mans wife from Cancer. That's what Romney is running against and his response is to continually call Soetero a "Nice Guy, Good Husband and father." How's that worked for ya Mitt?

Well my thoughts are if we can't win this one, I'm done with politics and the Republican party. There won't be anything left in 5 years worth fighting for. I'll just stay here in Texas and hope they decide to secede from the union.

Anyone else find ANY reason in this race to be optimistic?

Nalajr


P.S. If Soetero wins again, we all better gird our loins cause we ain't seen nothing yet. You think he was bad these 4 years, he'll pull everything he can to get whatever he wants. He's already showed he could care less about going thru Congress for anything. I'm talking all illegals being "effectively" legalized with the stroke of a pen. Probably lots of onerous gun and ammo rules and regulations, especially with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is what their plan has been for a while, and the UN. It'll be a helluva mess for us, a paradise for the Marxists though.
This is a much different country than post world war 2 where all Americans were hard working patriotic people, these are the people who built this country to be the greatest in the world, the immigrants entering this country followed that dream of hard work and they would be rewarded , as they were.The Democratic presidents as Harry Truman was a true American with a no Bull**** attitude, and then there was John Kennedy who in his inauguration speech said Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.

Our new society are lazy complacent computer raised moochers,their idea of working hard is typing something in the Google bar, turning to Hollywood for moral values and a way of life,75 per cent of the legal immigrants are looking for something for nothing, so of course they are going to vote for this socialist President.

As for the way Romney is handling his campaign, having dealt with millionaires my whole life, they are very short on talk and have much dryer personalities, they are more on action and less on talk, and I think the average person is having a hard time relating to a very successful semi conservative person trying to be a regular person.


Lets wait and see what the debates bring.

IMO, those who voted for McCain/Palin and have not lowered their IQ scores since will vote for Romney/Ryan. Some of those who voted for Obama/Biden will not make the same mistake again.

Now I understand the black bigots and liberals of all colors will still do so, but others who did it for other reasons will realize the huge mistake they made and either not vote or vote correctly this time.

At least this is my theory.

The TEA Party is in worse shape than the GOP!

The GOP doesn't know who they are anymore... the TEA Party never (or perhaps only for a brief moment) did!

The TEA (as in Taxed-Enough-Already) Party has been hijacked by the Bible Thumping American Taliban and the Kookistani Patriot Movement to capitalize on the momentum.

A lot of us can get behind any smaller gov/ lower taxes movement, but as soon as you get some fool out there saying, "Faaaaaags is gunna BURN!" at the TEA Party rally?

Anyone with a brain is going to run far away...

Exactly right. Most of the local Tea Party folks here hate gays and are anti-choice. They are also religious hypocrites.

That's not liberty. That's bigotry and fascism. The Tea Party sold out Ron Paul for Mitt. They are pathetic.

I think the current polls and TV talking head dialogues are all more-or-less meaningless. It's all about the debates and we'll see how things stand then.

I recall the same "Bush doesn't have a chance" talk when he was running (and faltering) against Gore. When he held his own in the debates, however, momentum started to shift and he managed to pull it off. Reagan did the same against Carter, as did Clinton against Bush #1 (with some help from Perot!).

Bit of history for the uninformed:

At this point in 1980, Reagan was behind Carter by a good bit.

How did that turn out?
