    I predict that NONE of the ones who have run before will win the nomination...
    So who are you looking at getting the nod? Huntsman?

    While that might be true, none of the named Republican candidates or candidate prospects have a snowball's chance against Obama, so perhaps the Republicans should give serious thought to upgrading their nominee with a monkey promising free cigarettes to children

    If McCain had respectable judgement, he might actually be President right.... but he doesn't, so he isn't, so why are listening to him?

    This is what i do not agree with Palin on "Tax breaks, war monger, private healthcare, abortion stance, her stance on sex education, same sex marriage, stance of keeping mariguana illegal, stance on global warming. Would you like more? "


    I havent flipped out at all,
    Kinda seem like you are making a big issue out of this.

    I just believe you think your posts are clever snark when they dont do anything but parse meaninglessly and dont really say anything.
    Well my first post which was sarcastic was snark. My last couple posts ehh kinda. I just dont agree with Sarah Palin... You really havent said anything you just posted a link.. Just sayin.

    Again if you are going to say posts need to be thoughtful, maybe you should get the ball rolling on your own and stop posting drivel.
    Well as i said on my second post i just put in as much thought as you did to your post.

    Your posts consist of :
    Palin /snicker
    Look at me Im clever.
    No, I was being sarcastic when I didnt have a point.
    Good job sense im being sarcastic you do realize this right? Do you hate sarcasm or something?

    And you still don't have a point.
    Palins a moron. FTW!

    Okay, so Energy you support America moving to unproven, costly "Green Energy". Got it. Insurance Reform, you'll have to provide some context here... Iraq, so you disagreed with Bush, and the DNC, and Al Gore, Clinton's, the UN... Afghanstan I was Bush, fine, II was Obama... and Osama's killing, so basically you disagree with all politicians but you basket that in with Palin. Got it.

    I think Huntsman has a good shot, unless he has some skeletons in his closet we are not aware of. He is a Mormon, but not the "goody two shoes" type. His has more of a presidential image than Romney. Part of Obama's campaign strategy was image, and it worked, especially against the image of a bumbling old man.

    Green energy is not all costly or unproven. Most of it is cheap and easy. Just like we did with cars since the 70's, we used MOSTLY EXISTING TECHNOLOGY to make the engines burn cleaner, get better miles per gallon, and even develop more horsepower. Application of existing technology can be done across the board, from how we build our houses to how we live our daily lives. Reducing wasteful habits can make a huge dent in our power "needs". Conservation, aka increasing efficiencies, is so easily and cheaply done that it is stupid to ignore it.
    But ignore it, we do...
    I sometimes get to enjoy hearing some or our friends complain about their air conditioning bills. Too much house, too many windows facing the wrong directions, too many wasteful energy wasting practices by the kids.....it all adds up.

    As for Palin, she probably won't run....she isn't stupid.

    The only person who had a chance to beat Obama was Daniels.
    Daniels was an interesting possibility that in the end proved little more than an attractive distraction. Lots of folks poured into him what they wanted to pour into him and made conclusions based on their own hopes and dreams. I am not sure he would have measured up but we will probably never know.

    He reminds me of some very young, hot attractive dancer that you see at a Bada-Bing Tony Soprano type bar. You sit there with yoru third drink and watch her dance and wonder what it would be like to go home to that every night and you fantasize about it as you stuff a Lincoln or two into her sweaty G string. You never wonder if she could cook, or clean, or help raise your kids, or do any of the more mundane tasks necessary in a relationship. Your mind is on one thing and only one things.

    I think lots of Republicans looked at Daniels like that.

    I do still think Romney can win in November. Of course he first needs to win in the primaries and at the convention and that is his problem. Significant sectors of the GOP do not seem to like him or are suspicious of him and his path to nomination may be difficult.

    But I still think he is the most electable of Republican nominees because he can win some Independent votes.

    Liberals are great at attacking people but very poor when it comes to actually knowing much. They call people names and reticule them because they have a Candidate who has proven at every turn he is not qualified to drive a trash truck, let alone hold office.

    Sarah Palin has a very good record in office, beats hell out of Obama's failures.

    I do dislike someone who parses my posts and doesnt say anything substantial in return. Someone who criticizes others without putting any of their views out there other than sarcasm, then criticizes others' posts.

    Short version: until the last post you were being asinine and trolling.

    The link I provided to on the issues has policy quotes almost every topic and where the person stands on various things. Its just one link but it does have unequivocal information on a person's policies and ideas.

    Palin is such a moron :
