    The contradictions is delicious.
    Aw, that's cute....You think everyone is liberal...

    Trickle down is more like piss down.
    No worries, a few more months and Obama and piss down economics will all be a thing of the past.

    Ah. This might get a bit complex, so, if you need me to draw it out a bit and explain some of the more tricky parts, let me know:

    The GOP Primaries? They determine (that means "decides") who gets nominated.

    Romney was not popular with the base until he got the nomination.
    Romney remained unpopular with the base. They simply thought he was far superior to the alternative.

    Well, due to the fact that he didn't do a good job of representing them, and they distrusted him.

    what you just described is money laundering. it is illegal and a criminal offense.
    people that make money overseas with overseas investment is not shipping money offshore.

    any money that has been invested overseas has already had taxes paid on that money.

    Romney and Bush are not going to beat democrats at their own game of class warfare.
    they need to come up with a better plan.

    So according to you loans only come from the rich and they control the banks?

    And no doing whatever you can to avoid paying taxes is not money laundering. It's very common to see corporate shell offices in Bermuda etc. and Swiss bank accounts have been used for decades. And if you think everybody pays their share of taxes you need to come to the real world.
    I'm not there yet but I've been infirmed there are plenty of loopholes out their for the filthy rich.

    Romney was never popular with the base. The base held their nose. At least the ones I know.

    i woudn't be counting my chickens before they hatch. I'm not seeing anyone in the GOP that is a sure thing next time around. In fact those stepping up belong to a clown car wirh the exception of maybe Bush. But I have doubts the US will go for another Bush.

    That said I'm not a Hillary fan and don't believe she's a shoe in.

    It will be interesting.

    No, the guy stepped on his dick on a daily basis. His handlers were in in constant damage control. Honestly have never seen anyone flip flop like Romney. The 47 percent comment was his coup de gras.
