I am afraid that the republicans have thrown away their chance, however slim, to win the election. Not by selecting Romney as their candidate since I think he is the best of what's available to choose from, regardless of his religious affiliation. But rather by the way the potential candidates attacked each other up to this point. Obama doesn't need to make any campaign ads, all he needs to do is replay all the ads from Romney's primary opponents.

If the Republican party, meaning it's leaders, had really been sincere about wanting to win in November they would have had a private conclave to select their candidate and then scripted a primary campaign where everybody played nice and left out all the negative rhetoric about each other.

I hope you are right.

I think this thread is gonna be a busy one here...


Oh, and a tactic of manipulating the primaries with the goal of getting one winner with a positive image, would have been a smart one on their part, however wrong.

Either way the republican party is really p****** off women, and that's going to be a huge downfall for them.

Personally, I think "good!". Seems more people are seeing the party for what it really is.

I guess you never heard of George Bush, senior or junior. The Bush family is most likely a lot richer than Mit Romney's.

Oh, and also, I guess you never heard of the Kennedys either.

The general view over the Pond is that, rightly or wrongly, Obama is likely to get re-elected. Has that radically changed?

Looking Forward to Big Ears aka Potus The Pitiful saturating The Airwaves with A Billion Bucks of Neg Adverts against The Pukes.

My pause live TV function on my DVDR will always be on during TV Time, so as I can Fast Forward thru The Commercials.

Seeing The Antics of Pitiful and His Faithful and The Pukey Pukes in Triple Fast Forward is The Way To Go.

Don't count romMEH and His VP out. The NEG Backlash with all Of The Zombies Commercials will Fo Sho swang some vote MEHs Way.

I see MEH winning by a Bush.

Yes I have some limited knowledge about alien countries. What I was guessing is Romney maybe second richest candidate after Perot.

I don't really think so. I think Obama's got this one all wrapped up already. But it sure could be fun to discuss what's wrong with the republican party. :-D

I don't know the money facts. But Romney is rich, yes. However I HIGHLY DOUBT he has anywhere near the money of the Bush empire. That's a whole 'nother breed.

One of the richest families in the country/world the Bushs are. In bed with Saudi oil families. Making and breaking policies to fit their needs, not doing anyone any good but themselves. Bush Jr gets into office and him and his VP are heavily invested in fossil fuels, did anyone notice that when he got into office gas and oil skyrocketed. This is what some of us call market manipulation. I'll go a step further and call it theft.

Back on topic, I'd rather have a gov't that looks out for it's people. I do NOT consider that socialism (Guy).

Let's not forget that GHW Bush's daddy made his money selling to the Nazis even after it was illegal.
We could of course look at the Kennedy's who made their money off of rum running ... and so on.

BTW Perot did very well the first time around in 1992. His purposals sounded reasonable but in reality (and we found out more in 1996) that it was Bat $hi7 crazy. The teapartyers are just a rebirth of his failed idea.

Bob, I think Republican leadership really doesn't want to win in 2012. They see the economy as a trainwreck (including all their actions as well as actions by the Democrats) and prefer the idea of four more years in which they can blame the Democrats. The economy is not going to suddenly get better under a Romney + TeaParty domination in 2013/2014 and Republican leadership would prefer the safety of opposition.

yes 1936,1940,1944, and 1948 agree. Republican were great at being a side show then and can do it again now

Meine Pause Live TV(function of DVDR) Funktion auf meinem DVDR wird immer auf bei TV-Zeit, so wie ich kann Fast Forward thru the Commercials(self-explainatory).

Seeing(to notice) die Eskapaden erbärmlich und seine treue und The Pukey Pukes(GOPTers) im Triple Fast Forward(3 times normal) ist der Weg zu gehen.

Zählen Sie nicht romMEH(presumptive candidate of GOPTers) und Sein VP aus. Der NEG Backlash mit all den Zombies(Dem/LIbs) Commercials wird Fo Sho(for sure) schwang eine gewisse Abstimmung Mehs Way.

Ich sehe MEH(so what?[indifference/boredom) zu gewinnen von einem Bush(Ex-Prez).
