    If this battle spreads it will only help romny ...and hurt the far right... Has the traditional GOP finally had enough of a handful of teapartiers hijacking the agenda, I think so ...I think theres lots going on behind the GOP scene...that isnt being reported

    A top House Republican on Tuesday attacked conservative tax activist Grover Norquist in a blistering floor speech, saying his no-taxes pledge has “paralyzed” Congress from tackling the deficit.
    In a short but powerful speech, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), laid out a remarkable indictment against one of the most powerful figures in conservative politics.

I don't get it. Maybe he really is more moderate than his record would suggest?
    I agree with this. Huntsman is more conservative than the media makes him out to be. Really the only moderate positions he has are that he's for civil unions and he believes in anthropogenic global warming. Since those are the two areas that I most break with conservatism, he is my dream candidate.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    Nobody is going to have a serious disadvantage against Obama.

    Cain's biggest plus is that he is not Perry or Romney.

    Have you even been paying attention to the campaign? Have you heard the guy speak?

    I hope that there aren't too many Republicans who delude themselves into thinking this. Otherwise they'll have to find out they were wrong the hard way.

    Why exactly would he have a serious disadvantage?

    You'd be surprise :-D.

    I voted other since it depends on the media willingness to investigate his past decisions and make it a headline.

    I think Rommey is destine to win with him having the blessings of Goldman Sachs. Regular americans don't really care or don't have the time so they pick whomever msm tells them to pick.

    I wouldnt put all my eggs in that basket...the fight for the whitehouse hasnt even started yet perry...it wont start until the gop pick their candidate...
    and there are indications all over the place that moderates are getting sick of the far right and libertarian hard line positions...as I said eventually would happen..
    I think its beginning...

    Any reason, depending on the candidate. Bachmann, for example, would start with a really serious disadvantage that she would probably never overcome, no matter how unpopular Obama is. Same with Palin, and to a lesser degree, Perry.

    I was a bit disappointed when Caine piled on Perry over the racial slur on a rock thing but all in all I really like him and I bet if Romney wins he picks Cain for VP.
