Granted...the country would be done for inside a decade, but hey...double the debt, promise the moon. Whats the worst that could happen? And how many years down the road can we dump the consequences of 'the worst' on?
    It's okay Vance, I understand why you are praying that those pesky minorities stay home.

    One has to wonder when the GOP "leaders" will finally boot out the George Wallace voters they've been pandering to for years. I mean they can't seriously think the southern strategy still works, right?

    No...you dont. I fully expect the dem to win and couldnt care less considering who the GOP has run (maybe you have missed it but I have been pretty dang accurate in the prediction dept so far). I havent voted major party in 11 years now. No..the course and direction this country is going...thats on the mindless partisan ****heads that keep supporting the clowns both parties keep sending to DC.

    What is so funny is that both sides do this. You see the libs whining and crying whenever anyone says anything negative about their dear leader Obama, yet they jump into threads like this and trash the other side. It's hilarious. Bunch of crying hypocrites.

    First off, I merely challenged your assertion that he was the most qualified in your lifetime. Unless you are six years old, then Romney would be compared to several other people, not just Obama, making your retort totally illogical. The reason you had to make that retort, of course, is that your realized your initial superlative statement was, indeed, absurd.

    That said, allow me to indulge you in the sub-point of your moving argument.. Sorry, but a sitting president always has a ton more experience as a president than any challenger, making it reasonably absurd to suggest that challenger is more-qualified. Again, Romney's only real credentials was that he was a one term governor of a lower-tier large state; with a JD and MBA from an Ivy. His so-called business experience as a LBO specialist is dubious experience, at best.

    When I read the posts from the Righties here, I think they plan on doubling down on that strategy. It's the moderates who have been kicked out of the GOP. Their two best shots of president, Christie (before bridgegate) and Rubio are now both persona non-gratta. The fat guy because he shook Obama's hand, and Rubio because he dared to support immigration reform.

    In fact, after Rubio's speech the other day, the Conservatives will probably start labeling him a commie.
    Rubio changes tone on policy in 2016 bid - Darrell Delamaide's Political Capital - MarketWatch
    Rubio singles out three types of people facing obstacles to realizing that dream single mothers, recent college graduates, and small-business entrepreneurs and accompanies the description of examples from each category with specific policies that include generous tax credits.
    Doesn't he know the shift toward the Center happens after the primaries?
