    It's true that very few people are excited about the idea of a Romney presidency. However, while the far right is not pleased with the prospect, they will get out and vote for him anyway if he is the nominee.

    I really think this race will come down to the swing voters, and truthfully, I believe the swing voters will vote with the economy as their driving issue rather than the social issues.

    I believe Santorum has a bit of an edge over Romney in that he is outspoken against Obamacare. I think that issue alone would carry enough weight with swing voters to give Santorum the momentum to possibly beat Obama.

    I strongly dislike both candidates. But I hate the president. Such ****ty choices.

    I doesn't guarentee it, but I still think Obama has a good chance.

    If he does, who might he pick as his VP? That could be fun too. Bachmann?
    Mitch Daniels, Allen West, or Rand Paul.

    Your argument is non-sense.

    He might excite the far right, but the moderates, independents, and swing voters are NOT going to rally behind him.
    Again, I know many moderates who would support ONLY him over Obama, because he is for liberty, and Obama is for Tyranny.

    It's quite simple who people will pick.

Romney is just a liberal pretending to be a conservative and no self respecting conservative would ever vote for a liberal.Even though almost every politician is ****en rich and been in office for a long time,the green with envy crowd will portray Romney as some rich guy who is out of touch with the common man. Romney has flipped so much that the joke "a liberal,conservative and a moderate walk into a bar and the bartender says hello Mitt" holds truth. Gingrich is the epitome of scumbag politicians and he supports amnesty for illegals.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Rand Paul would cost the ticket votes. Daniels might swing Indiana back into the GOP column but not much more than that.

    Rubio is still the best and most valuable addition.

    With his social views I would hardly call him a candidate for liberty.

    Re: Santorum Nomination Guarantees an Obama Re-election

    Ive paid attention to every Presidential election since 1992, and I've never seen anything as pathetic as this one. Its like the Republicans are just begging Obama to win.
