    i think that's a good point. independents are far more likely to vote for romney.
    I would have no problem voting for Romney especially in the light of his states' rights position and business experience. He is a former Governor that has dealt with an actual budget.

    You think that dividing the support between 8 Republicans today is going to be the same when there is one candidate? You don't believe the Republicans are going to unite to remove Obama? You really are naive if that is the case

    And he implemented a health care plan that is exactly like Obamacare. His business experience mainly consisted of buying companies, firing and offshoring a bunch of employees, and then selling the companies again.

    That said, he is by far the best Republican candidate. He has no actual beliefs of his own, but he is at least smart and not crazy. No other Republican candidate combines those two qualities.

    If your state wants universal healthcare, so be it, that is what states are designed to do, not a one size fits all Govt. program. As for buying companies and firing and shutting them down, that is a great guideline for the Federal Govt, eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 39% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings and now 26% supporting his handling of the economy
    You dodged the question AGAIN and made the classic correlation-does-not-equal-causation fallacy. Typical conservative troll.

    Romney is a feather in the wind. Now he says that health care should be left to the states. In 2006 he said, "I think there are a number of features in the Massachusetts plan that could inform Washington on ways to improve health care for all Americans."

    I think it's going to come down to Perry and Palin in a GOP run-off. Perry will get the nod because next to Palin he'll look moderate.

    True. He appeals to the wacky rightwing republican base, *and* the wackier rightwing republican base

    But he never forced it on the nation nor will he and that is the point.

    I would bet that he would have if he had been elected in '08, and I would further bet that Republicans would have supported him and the exact plan that they're demonizing now.
