    Mitt Romney, vowing a campaign to “end the scourge of poverty” if he runs for president a third time, has backed raising the minimum wage over the wishes of congressional leaders.

    Similarly, Jeb Bush’s new “super PAC,” announced with the fanfare of a presidential declaration, proclaimed, “While the last eight years have been pretty good ones for top earners, they’ve been a lost decade for the rest of America.”
    Another illustration of just how little difference there is between the current GOP front runners, and the Dims.

    History has shown this opinion to be wrong. When was the last time the GOP nominated a conservative?

    It's unavoidable, it's your destiny.

    Mitt needs to hire better message people. Too many poor people will hear that as "poor people are the scourge of society".
    I... don't think they will hear it that way, no.

    When has Hillary Clinton ran against a tea party nutter?

    When you get in touch with reality, let me know. I will waste no more energy on you.

    It's not that I'm right, it's that you cannot be serious, ever. All you do is **** with people. Your response had nothing whatsoever to do with my comment, and you know it full well.

    Incorrect.

    These are specific candidates I am comparing. I do not believe Romney or Bush can win the primary, especially by running to the left.

    And I believe Hillary Clinton will wipe the floor with any far-right candidate that comes up.

    What's your historical precedent for this?

    well if Mitt Romney really runs, you can better bet they will hear it that way. He has a bit of a history in this regard....
