    Well, obviously I have different priorities than you. But Romney is good enough for me to choose him over Obama, like I would have preferred to vote for McCain if not for Palin.

    Of course, a lot would depend on who his running mate was.

    Something we really don't need right now is party loyalists.

    On the Republican side, Johnson and Daniels had the best chances for good fiscal reforms.

Which issues are going to directly affect the safety, health, and livelihood of the country, and which issues are going to have a smaller or less influential affect on the lives of the majority. Romney doesn't support everything I stand for, but he's closer than Obama. If it's between the two of them I'l going Romney.
    if my state was in play it would be different. as it is, i can have more effect pulling the party to the right by threatning it there than I can help them by being one more voter from Alabama.

    I am interested in hearing more from Romney, but I haven't heard enough to make a decision yet.
    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    I would vote for the guy who supports universal health care and gay marriage and abortion and TARP and opposes the Iraq War and the Bush tax cuts

    So Romney

    This poll may as well ask the question "Do you want to eat worm infested apples or moldy apples?"
    "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."
    "When we live authentically we create an opportunity for others to walk out of their dark prisons of pretend into freedom."

    Re: Romney v. Obama

    Romney, from a strictly economic standpoint, I think would make a great President. He has a proven record of taking struggling ventures and turning them around.
    My concerns with Romney is that over the last decade, he was made a hard shift to the extreme right in order to pacify the evangelical base of the GOP. If what was being offered was the old Romney who didn't adhere to the right-wing social agenda, I could absolutely support him. However, the danger of having Romney push the anti-choice, anti-gay, big brother right-wing social agenda is too dangerous. Our supreme court is already verging on becoming a political right-wing activist court.....I would need assurances from Romney that he would not allow that to happen before I would even consider voting for him.

    Re: Romney v. Obama

    I couldn't choose either of them at this point. I really really think Romney is a formidable opponent to Obama, and I think he has some pretty good ideas, though again, he hasn't shared a lot of them. He's big talk, ie "I have business experience" but he doesn't explain what he'd do. His record as Governor was pretty crappy, even if you take "Romneycare" out of the equation. A lot of his hyperbole needs to stop also. Obamacare isn't a takeover of medicine, and saying Obama apologized for America for months, etc. That's just not true and needs to stop.

    This would basically be the same choice as the last election. I don't see a lot of differences between McCain and Romney. So I'd once again vote third party or maybe write in Ron Paul. As I'[ve said before, voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil. I'm not looking for a perfect candidate, but Romney isn't close to what I'd want. No way, I could in good conscience give him my seal of approval. The Republican Party cannot take my vote for granted any longer. And I think a lot of fiscal conservatives and libertarians feel that way.

    Re: Romney v. Obama

    I refuse to vote for either one. As far as I can tell, Romney and Obama have pretty much exactly the same policies on every issue, so it's not even worth voting for Obama to make sure someone worse doesnt win. I might vote for some third party candidate if there's a decent one. Maybe the communist party will run someone...

    Re: Romney v. Obama

    I'm not surprised but this is in conflict with all the latest polls that show Obama's numbers at headed down the drain where he and they belong.
