Shame, really. Paul is the only one who would effectively beat Obama. Which is why the MSM avoids any and all talk of him.


Paul can't effectively beat anyone. He hasn't won a single state against the likes of Romney, Gingrich or Santorum. Not exactly a murderer's row.

What in the hell makes you think he can beat Obama when he can't win in his own clubhouse?

In the political climate of 2008, with Palin on the ticket, the GOP was damned lucky to lose to Obama by 7.


McCain would have lost even bigger without Palin stop buying into the groupthink narratives.

In the political climate of 2012 we don't have to settle for a liberal from Massachusetts.

what I care about is finding out how to get conservative politicians elected that hold my beliefs. I have no desire to see a liberal Massachusetts Democrat pretending to be a Republican become president.

A vote for Romney is a vote for the same. The same can be said for Gingrich and Santorum. All of their proposed budgets increase the deficit. All of them want to go to war with Iran, who our own intelligence agencies have said are not building a nuclear weapon, purchasing a nuclear weapon, or planning on doing either. All of them are lying and pandering to so-called conservatives in order to win delegates.

Beating Obama with Romney does nothing to help America. In fact, keeping Obama with a Republican House and Republican Senate might be the best thing for America. Having Romney in the White House with a Republican House and Republican Senate would be disaster for the present and the future.

Appreciate the advice, but I was there. She was popular for about 10 minutes after giving a decent convention speech, but it was downhill from there.

Again, didn't read about it in a book. I watched the interviews and poll numbers and the idiocy.

He still would have lost with a decent running mate, though. I'll give you that.

We all were there. And it's just dishonest to say that Palin hurt McCain. He would have had even less votes without her.

I'm still trying to see it. I just...can't. How can anyone possibly believe this.

You mean you watched an edited Katie Couric gotcha interview, watched Tina Fey make fun of her and that was enough for you to buy into the groupthink that Palin is unacceptable but Biden is ok.

I legally can't insult the Vice President in uniform.

Edit: He still probably helped Obama among blue collar voters in states that were actually contested. Palin may have helped McCain among some women and evangelicals in the deep south--which he would have won anyway.

No McCain hurt McCain. If the VP pick was so critical to how people vote Biden would have sank Obama.

It's at least time for Paul and either Gingrich or Santorum to hang it up. Paul's not going to win and Gingrich and Santorum are vying for the same anti-Romney, non-Paul voters.


1. Yes to your supposition.

2. I suspect its a little too late now and besides none of them show signs of understanding your post.

Bull shite. The main stream media controls so much of the voting populace's minds it's insane


If that were true, it would be a really great reason to discard Paul. The MSM would have an absolute field day with him. By the time it was over most of the country would be aware of at least one thing that would make Paul a no-go for them.

Plus a tea party VP
Plus state waivers for Obamacare
Plus a myriad of positives

It's just obtuse to say it's NO different than Obama. I'm not happy with Romney either, but it would be meaningfully different.

False unless you think Obamacare is meaningless. Try to refute that.

Agreed. But these guys are RP purists. It's all or nothing. If it's not Paul, it may as well be the bastard child of Hugo Chavez and Ségolène Royal.
