    Keep in mind though, those polls can change drastically when the real Presidential Race begins. Obama has just now started taking some shots at the GOP candidates, but remember Obama has something like a billion dollars to spend. Hes a president in a bad economy, that right there is a huge advantage to the GOP, but I still predict Obama winning.

    But I thought OWS was opposed to big money in elections?

    Barack Obama won't get 40% of the vote in TX and although not a swing state it is an example of what can be done at the state level if the govt. has the political will to do what is right.

    What a sad commentary that would be were it to become a reality.

    It is sad if republicans fail to field a viable option, but looking at the current corp, that is a possibility.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    What you perceive as a viable candidate was destroyed when the Democrats nominated Barack Obama who lacked the resume and experience for the job. Everyone of those on the Republican side has more experience than Obama had when he was elected

    You may not see it, but who matters against him matters. His supporters likely wish you'd run Bachman or Perry. Newt is smart, but does carry a lot of bagage. You claim to have been around awhile. if that is true, you remember how unpopular he was. And do you really think it would be hard to dredge all that up?

    Romeny is the least objectionable among the contenters, but also the least inspiring.

    Paul is interesting, but can't seem to get the support needed.

    Like I said, who republicans pick matters.

    So you have to approve of the republican nominee?

    Nope. A comon dodge on your part. But being a thinking person, I can speculate and see problems. You could as well, if you took the time to look it over.

    The Obama record matters more to me and if forced to choose Newt I will vote AGAINST Obama rather than voting for Newt. Any of those Republicans are better qualified than Obama yet he won the election. He had his chance and failed. I prefer the Conservative alternative which has been successful in TX
