    I wish that we had a real liberal when it comes to education because we have an educational crisis. I also want a real liberal on healthcare reform. I wish a pro SSM convicted social conservative would run too... I will never have my ideal candidate.
    That just leads to my point about the party moving farther to the right, they couldn't even get the dems to vote for what most of the country at the time wanted. And yes the country did want a single payer system, they wanted health care reform, real reform. But that was before the republicans termed it "Obamacare" and attacked it by calling it socialism.

    Oh, and I could never vote for someone who is a social conservative, feels icky voting for someone who thinks I'm a second class citizen.

As a liberal I would like to see single-payer brought to the table. Obama is too afraid to venture too far from the middle. Probably wise if he wants to appeal to moderates and independents, but certainly not even close to embracing liberal ideas.
    Really? What would you label them as?

    I may or may not vote but if I did I'd go for Obama.

    For the most part I was just getting really sick of Santorum and am glad he finally dropped out.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Obama's proposed economic policies have all been focused on the middle class. Nothing that Obama has done economically can be characterized as radical and doing much to help the poorest in this country. He has been appealing to the middle of the road, middle class voters.

    I admit I am not really happy with Romney as our candidate but I will hold my nose and vote for him and I think a lot of Conservatives will do the same..........As much as Hussein Obama screwed up in 4 years we cannot endure another 4 years of him.........Conservatives are angry and they want this clown out...............

    LOL....NP....the only person who is a bigger flip flopper than Romney is you. You said the same thing about GWB.....on one hand you claim to have "held your nose and voted for him" and on the next you are calling him a "great and inspiring world hero"....I suspect that you will be saying the same about Romney...you've claimed how horrible he is and that he is a total RINO....and in a few weeks you will be saying he is the best thing since sliced bread. Is Romney your Fred Thompson this year?

    I think it is more like a few very bitter, very angry 'conservatives' think 4 more years will ruin the nation. Those people would never think to vote anyway but R so there is no 'helping' them and no need for Mitt to cater to them in the least. He doesn't have to inspire them, their 'fear and loathing' drives them.

    Sad but true.
