    Perry is a much better candidate than Romney. Inspiration is zero.

    In my opinion, Obama will win, despite the economy, facing either one. He is blessed with a very weak GOP field who are being yanked to the extreme right by the Tea Party.

    No insult intended perry your a good example of the non traditional GOP minority. Reading between the lines of this article what screams out is that the Traditional Majority GOP is starting to stand against the minority far right teaparty types. Thats what I take from this...

    Im taking from this article that the Tradional Republicans are trying to yank the party back to the right away from the FAR RIGHT...no matter how our far right friends on this forum try to portray it....the far right teaparty is consistently losing favor with the american public.
    I made the statement and prediction a few months ago...the more the teaparty put themselves out front the more talking they did...the more their real agenda would become clear to the mass's and they would be rejected...Ryans Plan rejection was the beginning

    So just who was it that picked McCain as the GOP standard bearer in 2008?

    I'm still studying Perry. I have not yet decided whether to support his candidacy or not. Time will tell.

    I don't like Romney. He's just too much of an insider, too much of a politician in the worst sense of the word. Keep voting for mediocrity and you get mediocre government.

    Having said that, if he emerges as the GOP candidate I will probably vote for him, mainly because he would likely have a pro-business administration and we desperately need one to pull out of this recession.

    Doesn't mean I like him, just that he may end up being the lesser of two weevils.

    The 2008 GOP primaries were a huge cluster-****. Candidates entered and dropped out like flies on fresh garbage laced with DDT. Nobody good really wanted to be Prez just then, because most people could see that the economy was going in the toilet and there was little that could be done to stop it yet. McCain was something of a "there's nobody really good left running, we're tired of it all, vote for the most senior candidate and screw it all" half-arse winner.

    McCain so utterly failed to distinguish himself against Obama that the outcome was all but foregone. Why vote for Obama-lite (McCain) when you can vote for full-flavored Obama?

    Romney is also, IMO, a cup of weak tea whose middle-of-the-roadness will likely be very uninspiring.


    My disgust with both parties continues unabated.

    No, I didn't take it as you were. It was a legit question to ask. It's good to see a valid question now and then.

    Good luck with that choice [Perry]...you're gonna need it.
    I refused to vote for McCain and I've not once felt bad about that decision. He's actually reinforced it for me since then. If it comes down to Obama and Romney, I care care less who wins. I'm really can't get excited over Perry either.

    Makes the inevitable dart throwing so much easier.

    No insult taken. Many of those who were asked this were many of those who went along with many of the things that got us where we are today. I'm certainly not insulted to be excluded from them.

    People continue to paint the Tea Party as "far right" but yet never come up with any examples that would be "far right". Balancing the budget is an extreme fringe position? Paying for things you want is extreme?
