    Need more proof that the GOP of today is completely focused on the right-wing social agenda?

    Fiscal, Limited government conservative with moderate to liberal social stances (promoted civil unions in Utah of all places). And he's Mormon, but I don't really care about that. And he gets China.
    Finally an adult running in the Republican party (though I think Romney would also qualify as an adult.)

    We have seen the same thing in the past. Ronald Reagan, the greatest president in my lifetime, was the result. We don't leave the party. We regain control of it.

    The popularity contest has been going on far too long.

    You're so credible that I don't even have to watch the video.

    and everyone else is focused on the left.

    Non story, really - what I'm more concerned about is the **** that people actually value and weigh their vote in on when it comes time ot head to the booths.

    He's actually a decent guy...a true moderate...and thus has ZERO chance in today's GOP.
