He's the new comeback kid, giving Sara a good and hard thrashing.

"Mitt Romney's hopes of securing the Republican nomination for the 2012 US presidential election received a major boost today after the wealthy former governor of Massachusetts easily won a poll of delegates from his party who were asked who should take on Barack Obama.

Romney won 35% of the poll, trouncing Texas congressman Ron Paul, with 11%, former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty, with 8%, and 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who took 7%."

"Romney the RINO", as Tea Party people call him, is sure to really infuriate them if he becomes the Republican nominee for POTUS.

Are there any right leaners here who'd rather he won the nomination instead of Sarah Palin?

You're paranoid!

Who's Alex?

Do you think they'll run together? Maybe Romney's VP this time. "Vice" seems to be her thing, after getting McCain's solid backing.

I believe "observant" is the word you're looking for there. No, I'm not paranoid at all.

I have no idea. I don't really care. Neither one of them is the answer to what ails this country. The best we can hope for is someone to slow down the runaway freight train. Possible a contentious "do nothing" Republican Congress and a whiny, smug, cocky Democratic President will achieve that goal.

Ohhh...I got it now. Who is the answer to what ails this nation...right. Got it. Ummm...I'd say the best candidate would be Ron Paul. Honest. Intelligent. No bullshit. Understands the constitution and wants to follow it. Understands economics and the right policies to return the nation to growth. Understands monetary policy and how to end the silent and stealth plundering of the people of this country via the Fed and the fiat money system.

He'll never get elected of course. Several reasons:

1. He's not good looking enough.
2. Though he's intelligent and a decent speaker...he's not as eloquent, poetic as some.
3. No one actually wants to hear the truth, they want to hear slickly polished, but empty promises of "Hope" and "Change."

You said neither is the answer to what ails us, so I'm asking who you think is. I'm guessing you'd rather have Ron Paul than either of those two mentioned already, but perhaps you have someone else you'd prefer?

Not very thinly veiled either. Hands, you keep trying to draw people in to your threads with shocking titles and racy or highly controversial dialogue. Why? Is having a highly read thread with lots of responses that important to you? Some of your topics are quite interesting without the innuendo.

In the office yesterday one of my democrat friends was discussing this topic. He feels that Palin will be the sacrificial lamb leading to the presidency. She will be put out as a front runner then have the carpet pulled from under her and that Jeb Bush will come from nowhere to secure the nomination. I don't know if this is the case, but it was far more interesting a theory than most I have heard. And not only that but if you add in Palin as VP you have a very interesting ticket indeed. Is it a winner? Depends on too many variables right now. Will it make any difference if it is? Don't know, but I do believe that Obama is not wowing right now. We shall see if that changes as the election comes closer.

However, Rather than him focusing on that, he should be focused "like a laser beam" on the economy.

Mitt Romney is a piece of meat with no taste.He is no personality hardly and Obama would trounce him in 2012.Palin is just an imbecile to begin with.

I'd prefer Romney to Palin. I'd also prefer him over Jeb.

Like MJ, I'd absolutely love to see Ron Paul get elected, but don't believe it can happen with our uninformed, shallow voters.
Even then, I'd prefer he run as an independent, because I'd hate for him to be beholden to the republican party.

You lost me at the begining there.

I'm not in the US anymore, so it's much harder to have a good sense of how people's views are going. I'd be amazed though if a Bush and a Palin could team up. You're talking a lot of aminosity there from the middle and the left over W's wars etc.

Romney isn't stupid either and he knows he has to win the middle ground. McCains attempts to draw in the right through Palin failed to win him POTUS and Romney knows that she's a death wish because of that.

Palin may run and run with someone like Ron Paul, but then would Ron Paul want to be tarnished by Palin and compromise enough, I doubt it, but he may. I think more likely would be that guy from Texas, Rick Perry, him running with Palin as VP, but it's such a right wing ticket I think they'd get hammered come election time.

Romney with another moderately moderate seems to be the Repubs best chance.

Ok, I am going with benefit of the doubt here and say that this time you did not intend for your title to be anything but political commentary and drop it.

As for the rest. Do you have brothers or sisters? If so, are you and them alike in every way? I have siblings and for the most part we are all VERY different. To say that Palin could not run with a Bush shows to me a lack of realization that just because one is from the same family does not mean that one would lead the same way that their brother did. Let a man be judged on his own actions and beliefs, not his brothers or fathers. Does this mean that Jeb Bush will be the next nominee in my opinion? No. But he should not be dismissed based on W's wars.

I honestly like Ron Paul from what I have heard about hihm and the fact that he is not electable by the mainstream makes me like him more. So far, mainstream electable characters have not been that great for our nation. People need to judge on actual intelligence and policy, not sound bytes and whether someone looks like a person you would invite to a party.

If we elect another Bush, we might as well have a royal family. Enough with the Bushes already.

Hating a person for the family they are in is not a reason.

Simply on a gut level people will dislike/hate Jeb, because of W. They are bound not to be politically very different from eachother either. That means Jeb's would get out the vote for Obama, just as Palin would.

I do have brothers and sisters and we're all very different, but were not running for POTUS and none of us have been elected to that office (yet!).

I can't stand Ron Paul. Basically he just wants to pretend it's still 1776. He can sound convincing, I'll give him that, but all his jibberish populist talk amounts to is whining on about white people being disenfranchised. The fact that anyone falls for it is a sad reflection of the alienation those people must feel from there fellow citizens of all races.
