    Who would have thought Barrack Obama was electable at this point? We'll all just have to watch the primaries.

    Rioters and protesters get a lot of publicity and create fear among most politicians as do those who say the government is "heartless". Is it possible to find enough strong and honest people to stand up against them? Those who stand up for fiscal responsibility will be swimming against the current, that's certain.
    Yeah, that's right. And it also depends on whether os not they grew a sac when they were kids.

    bring your accountants

    we'll bring the media
    It probably is best if you guys bring the media. Then maybe you can persuade them to turn off their microphones when Bachmann speaks. That's the only way she'll have a chance.

    It is too early to tell. But, honestly, would you want her to be the primary winner?

    I'm sure you're quite anxious for Republicans to nominate someone their party "needs" and has a chance of winning.

    Just curious, who do you think we "need" to win the election?

    I think I speak for most of us here when I say that I would like nothing more in 2012 but to see a quality candidate on the Republican side. I don't want to be forced to vote for Obama again, simply because of a lack of quality on the other side.

    I can't imagine any way in which Michele Bachmann represents "the best" the Republican party has.

    I think I'd like to see Manchin win re-election but switch parties.
    He's not for the health care bill or cap and trade.

    Frankly, I'd probably vote for Romney if he had a different on opinion on abortion and gay marriage (he's still somewhat of a moderate on those issues, though).
    Not sure at this moment who I'd vote for, maybe a third party or maybe not at all.

    If the republicans make social conservativism and issue this election I will certainly not be voting for them.
    Give a man a fish, or he will destroy the only existing vial of antidote.
