    You're right lets stick to straight forward questions. For example Romney proposes increasing and maintaining defense spending at 4% of GDP, it is certainly at 3.5% of GDP just for comparison, I'd like to ask Mr. Romney where he'll find the extra money to increase defense spending without increasing the debt, I'm assuming this will mean cut backs in government as he won't raise taxes. So what programs will he cut to come up with this extra money?

    Many good suggested explanations in this thread. I'm going to go with all of the above.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well, I'm sure Mr. Romney would be happy to answer your questions if he were here. But he's not, so why are you asking ME these questions?

    Classic Conservative Victim/Perscution Complex.

    The fault lies in the fact that you picked a lousy candidate, he was the best of a bad bunch... and the GOP primary was a BAD bunch (except Huntsman).

    At the end of the day, whether you like it or not, a candidate has to have some likeablity, some charisma and be able to connect with voters, Mitt Romney doesn't have these things.

    I don't like him, but right now I think Santorum was better choice. He can at least relate to the common man, and he is not potrayed as a rich lying asshole.

    You know, I don't think Kerry enjoyed the same adoration or assistance from the media that Obama has been getting. Too bad for him, eh?

    Anyway, your attempt to deflect to Kerry to dispute a point I didn't make kind of fell flat on it's face, didn't it?

    Me (and probably Jon Stewart, Bill Maher and Stephen Colbert) would have given our left nuts to see Santorum go up against Obama.

    Would have made for some pretty good television.

    It's not a deflection. It's a mockery of your simplistic guess as to how the news world operates.
