    "Their best shot"? What about the country?

    There is the hope that perhaps the American people learned a lesson in who they vote for. That it is important.

    Which policies do you feel are "extreme right"?
    It doesn't matter who is in office. People are still forgetting that train wreck in both The Senate and The Congress. Until people stop sending these fools back to Washington, there will never be anything ever getting done.

    Depends on which Mitt Romney you are talking about: The pro-choice ex-Governor of Massachusetts or Mr. Etch a Sketch that sold his integrity to the extreme right-wing of the GOP in order to get their support.

    Yes, BHO won the election. But how has the country done since then? The sad fact is that rather many not very bright people voted for him, as we have seen, and it is the USA which lost as a consequence. The unions have to get out of the education biz so that more Americans can understand basic economics and history. If this continues then we are looking at one vast wasteland.

    What an astute observation! Yes, people are trying to deal with it.

    Nice personal attacks on Ann Romney there. You left out the digs at her multiple sclerosis and the radiation treatments she had in 2008 for breast cancer.

    That's the reality we're faced with in America today when choosing between the two major political parties.

    They both suck and pretty much all members in both parties would pimp out their own children to further their political ambitions.
    Or perhaps it's the electorate that sucks. Has that not occurred to anyone?

    That said, Romney's time has passed and it would be foolish for him to spend time and money running a third time. Perhaps, in a Jeb Bush administration, there will be a senior secretary role for Romney if he still wishes to serve his country even more than he already has.
    Please don't trip over your hyperbole. He was a one term governor of a medium-sized state; hardly the most qualified to run in your lifetime. Yes, he had an Ivy league JD and MBA, but we have had plenty of those. Obama is an lvy League JD.

    Really, nothing worse then tripping over bad hyperbole; especially when you land and splatter it all over your face. Its just not very becoming.
