    But there's something unexciting about Romney.

    In any case, here's the graphic on the CPAC #1/#2 choices.

    A dismal showing for Palin, Pawlenty, Huckabee.
    True. Similar to last time except Palin's has been cut in half.

    Paul is not just against direct intervention, but any form of intervention. He does not support foreign aid. He does not support arms sales to any foreign military. He does not even support non-binding resolutions that comment on a foreign matter. Unless the U.S. or its citizens are directly concerned he does not want us involved in any way.

    I'm sure he is sincere in those ideas, but if elected he'll have to face the realities of the world just as President Obama did when confronted with the closure of GITMO.

    The reality is that America's foreign enemies are a result of blowback. Are there countries that hate the U.S.? Sure. Have we given countries reasons to hate us? You bet.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    There is no conspiracy in the U.S. to deny Ron Paul the opportunity to win the Presidency. He will very likely fail, because his political positions have insufficient appeal. One needs broad-based appeal to win one's Party nomination and then the general election. An energized but narrow base is not enough.

    I agree with you but he still can't win the nomination or election being the person he is. I'm not sure you can win being the real McCoy and has honest and straight forward as he is. It's sad but true.

    Based on the 2008 elections and how rabid his supporters were, I think most Paul supporters have a problem with reality. So, you may as well start getting used to it now.

    Trump is a big mouth moron. He couldn't win his way out of a paper bag.
