    It's very easy to see just where the two stand.

    The only one who really sticks to an ideology is Ron Paul, as someone noted above already. Since Ron Paul sticks to an ideology instead of saying what the audience wants to hear, he has no chance of winning the presidency.
    While there is some merit in standing by a belief when you are punished for doing so, ideologies in general and Ron Paul's ideology in particular are mismatched with the challenges of reality.

    Ideology by nature is more about stimulating the adherents' egos with fantasies and imaginary dramas than responding to real life problems and challenges.

    I see too many similarities between Romney and Obama.

    This November I would rather see Romney lose because two years down the road Republicans will win big if Obama is in the White House. Then in 2016 we can elect a true conservative.

    Yeah you want two more Kagans on the supreme court

    good thinking

    and none of the people who ran in the GOP were true conservatives. Romney was better on the things that matter than the slimy salamander and the abortion fascist santorum


    clue to you social conservatives

    gay rights, gay marriage, abortion are all distractions. The ECONOMY is what matters

    and Romney is by far the best conservative choice there

    So you'd rather have a President who you don't know what he believes in over a President you do know what he believes in but disagree with?

    Are you defining Partisan as anyone who disagrees with you on anything?

    You do realize Romney has take huge amounts of flak for being a flip flopper with no core beliefs from people who are millions of miles more to the right then you are no?

    The GOP elected a former pro gun control, pro-choice, big spending, tax hiking, fee raising politician from a deep blue state who explicitly disowned Reagan as their candidate.

    No.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Re: Does Mitt Romney has core beliefs?

    Romney is the typical political weasel; he is for all three sides of any issue, yet somewhat against it too. The GOP has decided to play the electoral college, winner take all, numbers game, and thus have abandoned any real platform at all. Presidential elections boil down to being controlled by the winner of a few key "swing" states, and those elections are decided by the mood of "independent" voters.

    The GOP has now decided to use "moderate" or RINO candidates, like Dole, McCain and Romney to try to win that tiny segment of voters that now actually decide any national election. Romney will get all of the right and ABO vote, none of the left and, HOPEFULLY, enough of the "key" independent voters to get the win. That is the ONLY real GOP strategy present, and why Romney must simply "look presidential" and not make too many mistakes. USA, USA, USA...

    That is exactly how elections are won: Look presidential, talk both sides of every issue, and target the few swing voters in the few swing states. Romney is only marginally better than Obama anyway, as they're a whole lot alike. Will Romney (if he's elected) do anything to cut back the deficit? To stop the so called "kill lists"? to end indefinite detention? Reform immigration? Who knows? He does have more experience and knowledge of what it takes to run a profitable business. Will he apply that to government? Can he? Who knows.

    This election is a crap shoot.

    It is VERY important for the appoinment of some new robed umpires, that may last 30 years. It is also ASSURED that Obama will continue to bumble along and run huge deficits, letting congress run the show. As leaders they are both weak, but at least Romney KNOWS that, and is more likely to to try something new. Obama has shown no tendency to do anything other than make speaches and constantly blame all ills on some outside force, yet take credit for anything that he can think of, even if he has no clue how it happened. Obama has kept very few of his 2008 promises of his hope & change BS, has not opened gov't, has not reduced the deficit, as not changed tax policy and has not done much of anything, outside of taking credit for ObamaCare that is evolving (yet still unpopular) as we speak. No he can't!
