    Cain, Bachmann, Pawlenty, Santorum, Romney, are all running. They could all beat Obama.

    Romney/Bachmann. What a ticket. It would be like McCain/Palin all over again. I agree, they could totally beat Obama.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    That's called a nudge, and we're on to it. Obama wants prices high to nudge us into behaving in a way he approves of. Mass transit? Maybe we value our freedom to come and go as we please and not on a train or bus schedule devised by someone else. Tiny cars? Maybe we like our Pickups and SUV's. Maybe some of us have things to haul, and kids and dogs to take places. We like our vehicles and we like our freedom. Mass transit has it's place, but it's not in most of the country. We don't live like that, and we have no desire to. High gas prices would kill us and that's one reason this president needs to go. What he wants for this country is not what the majority wants. I believe the liberal/socialist/Dems are still out numbered.

    Don't know all of them, yet, but I know that a few of them generate bile in the pits of conservative stomachs.....
    Cain, no
    West, maybe
    Bachman, hell no
    Pawlenty, no
    Santorum, no
    Romney, maybe
    Try a Romney West ticket, with either in top slot...

    There's an effort going on to draft Allen West. If that happens, Obama may as well give up now.

    as you say, Mass transit is not suitable for any place that isn't densely populated...
    I have seen many empty or near empty busses in and around Logan, Utah. Close in, around the University and downtown, the system gets used some, but it will be a money loser for a long time to come.
    But we have had high gas prices before, and will again. It is silly to blame the president for all market conditions. Now, if he were an actual dictator, or royal prince, maybe he could have the govt subsidize gasoline prices... Yeah, that's what we need, more subsidies......(sarcasm).....
