    I happen to hope he wusses out-but it will be whatever his bimbo advisor (VJ) tells him to do

    Republicans who want to blame someone for Obama being elected again should look no further than the piss-poor group of candidates the party offered up.

    Easy. He's going to play golf. Same as he would have done with a yes vote. Obama is more concerned with his literary advance and buying property in Hawaii at this point, than Syria. Syria is a pain in the ass. He wishes he had not opened his trap as he is being owned.

    A moderate pub has to make himself look like a flip flopping panderer to win the primary. Then he has to reverse course for the general.

    That is about right. And democrats just need to promise free $hit that no one has to pay for and they win.

    Yeah, that's true. But I think it's the Republican message that's getting muddled. I dislike the GOP... we need the GTP (Grand Tea Party) to start controlling the narrative for the Right/conservatives.

    What's funny here, guys, is that these posters never learn from history. You have to govern from the center. The more they try and drag people kicking and screaming to the left, the more animosity and resentment it builds until something blows. It's these types of situations that can lead to some good changes in direction ala Margaret thatcher, but more often than not, can cause a country to veer sharply off course or too far the other direction. History is littered with evildoers like Hitler and Duke who lived by taking advantage of pent-up paranoia and discontent and resentment. Let's hope we can avoid similar catastrophes in poor judgment here. But if we are lucky, 8 years of this BS may actually open people's ears and have them seriously listen to honest decent men like Rand Paul and Marco Rubio.

    Totally disagree with you Bill. Bush was elected twice and he was more middle of the road. Romney was not elected because many people just didn't like him. In addition you couldn't discern any real plan he had for solving our issues along with absolutely insane comment he made about the 47%. He might be rich and a good businessman but that was simply stupid.

    If the Republicans run another slate of candidates like Newt, Cain, or Bachman and Hillary runs then look for another Clinton in the White House.

    You probably could not pick a worse person to run this country than Hillary. There is absolutely nothing she has accomplished, except some shady business dealings and turning away from Bill's trangressions for the sole reason of politics. The Clinton's and Obama are the most political people in the country.

    That's funny that you make that comparison. Winston Churchill was unpopular and a punch line in his day as well. He only became PM because of a unique set of circumstances in which a national government (meaning party affiliations were officially set aside) was required to deal with the crisis of Nazi Germany overrunning Europe. As soon as Germany was defeated (and before Japan was), the Labor Party officially dropped out of the national government and promised the British a bunch of free stuff if they voted Churchill out. Churchill warned the people about the insidious nature of a welfare state and the rising menace if the Soviet Union. The Labor leaders mocked him for his views and won the election. Churchill became PM again briefly in the early 50s and was again run off due in part to his perceived poor handling of the Malaya Crisis. History did start seriously evaluating Churchill's leadership in an unbiased way until about the 1970s. The British anti-communist campaign in modern-day Malaysia is now considered a textbook model for the proper handling of a counterinsurgency.

    No offense to the OP, but I disagree.
    Romney was WRONG.
    He said 47% of the country were deadbeats.
    We found out the actual number was 51.1%.

    If you feel that way then do everything you can do to influence the outcome of the Rep primaries and hope someone runs a majority of the people can get behind. Hell, run Jeb Bush if that is what it takes.

    True to a point, with one huge problem. As horrible as those dudes were, they didn't have Obama's HORRIBLE track record.

    Hey, I actually got two strangers standing in line to vote for Gary Johnson :)
