    no. as of yet there is not a single Republican contender for the post that is not a superior alternative to the Navel Gazer in Chief.

    If your goal is to impose a radical right wing government upon America which destroys and repeals all the political reform of the 20th Century, that is probably correct.

    not all; but i would like to see large chunks of our mistakes of the 20th century gone or at least modified, yes. the entitlement system, for example, seems currently on track to break us.

    however, unfortunately i have yet to see a presidential hopeful say the same; though having one endorse the Roadmap would be a positive step in this direction. but as of yet it seems that none of them are as "radical" as necessary for us to avoid fiscal ruin.

    Yet, Obama is imposing a far left ideology on a center right country. He is exactly who his resume said he was and the people ignored it but are now waking up. Your vision of the country and his is contrary to the majority in this country. People bought the "hope and change" message but their definition of change was different than Obama's. We are seeing the results of the Obama definition and it is being rejected. The November 2010 elections were a start.

    Wait a minute here...."Impose"? First off, let's take a look at the dictionary definition of the word shall we?

    im·pose   
    [im-pohz] Show IPA
    verb, -posed, -pos·ing.
    –verb (used with object)
    1.
    to lay on or set as something to be borne, endured, obeyed, fulfilled, paid, etc.: to impose taxes.
    2.
    to put or set by or as if by authority: to impose one's personal preference on others.
    3.
    to obtrude or thrust (oneself, one's company, etc.) upon others.
    4.
    to pass or palm off fraudulently or deceptively: He imposed his pretentious books on the public.
    5.
    Printing . to lay (type pages, plates, etc.) in proper order on an imposing stone or the like and secure in a chase for printing.
    6.
    to lay on or inflict, as a penalty.
    7.
    Archaic . to put or place on something, or in a particular place.
    8.
    Obsolete . to lay on (the hands) ceremonially, as in confirmation or ordination.

    Impose | Define Impose at Dictionary.com

    I see at least 4 out of the 8 descriptions there that fit the Pelosi/Reid/Obama method for doing things in the past 4 years. Name any number bills passed, regulatory agencies "imposed" extra constitutionally, Taxes levied in the form of something else. And you have the nerve, the gaul to moan and cry when a bloated, corrupt liberal monster that are now called Public Sector Unions, have their bourgeoisie, corrupt little deals, paid for by the other citizens that are paid less, and have less benefits? GTFOH!

    which destroys and repeals all the political reform of the 20th Century, that is probably correct.
    If it is about destroying the extra Constitutional entitlement class, in favor of getting back to the basics of the Constitution, and Reigning in spending to programs, and things that are far out of the scope of the Federal Government in the first place, as well as, rendering moot the leviathan that seeks to strangle the spirit of this country, while shifting as far from the founding fathers vision as they can through centralizing what was never meant to be centralized, then I am ALL FOR IT!

    If they do, it will be the fault of the GOP for not running an electable candidate. Palin, anyone? How about Newt?

    I agree with the first part, but there is no indication that Palin will run for anything other than a second season of her Alaska outdoor show. And Newt? Nah, he's a smart guy, he knows that there are hurdles because an Obama friendly media would not let him get away with something that a demo could just brush off.

    Why shouldn't Obama cruise when he has an entire media doing his dirty work for him?
