    Then he wanted to bomb Syria and now wants to bomb ISIS, as well as bitched about too little on Libya.
    Seems public opinion only counts when it's one of your issues.

    Bottom line, the GOP is bi-polar, attacking Obama from both extremes on foreign policy, just for a starter issue .
    Give it up, Obama and clan are done, stick a fork in it. You love Obama, fine, turn out the lights come November, no more coal to keep the light burning.

    It's not the fiscal conservatives I have a problem with, nor would most of the country. I'm a very fiscally conservative person.

    It's the Bible thumping hypocrites that say they want a smaller government yet try to legislate their form of morality from on high inserting the government into my bedroom and telling people who they can and cannot love and in fact trying to outlaw it. Those are the ones that are trying to live in the 18th century when the rest of the country is moving forward into the 21st century. That's better than the Taliban, but only by a few centuries... and that they don't behead people.

    Huntsman may have been fine but he wasn't a candidate and, of the two available, most now feel Romney would have done a better job.

    Which policies do you feel are "extreme right"?

    I, for one, would love to see Willard make another run at it.
    I can just see him pulling out his "binders full of women" in a debate with Hillary...
    and if you think you are tired of seeing the 47% video now ...

    Well then good.

    It's the Bible thumping hypocrites that say they want a smaller government
    This is where I have a serious problem, I don't give a damn who wants a smaller government I love it. But you do care who wants a smaller government, if it's some bible thumper that is not OK with you.

    yet try to legislate their form of morality from on high inserting the government into my bedroom and telling people who they can and cannot love and in fact trying to outlaw it.
    This has nothing to do with wanting a smaller government. Anyone can want a smaller government and also be an advocate on other issues. You trying to tie one advocate with another is dead wrong. If you agree with smaller government then say so and if you disagree with some bedroom issues then say so. But to say they are for smaller government and then in the same breath cast them aside because they they have bedroom issues is dead wrong.

    Those are the ones that are trying to live in the 18th century when the rest of the country is moving forward into the 21st century. That's better than the Taliban, but only by a few centuries... and that they don't behead people.
    There you go casting aside their belief of smaller government as being wrong only because you think they live in the 18th century. Try and be literate and separate the two. I say again if you agree with smaller government then say so and if you disagree with their bedroom issue you can say so as well.

    It's OK to agree on some and not on others views.

    By the media, younger votes. The stereotype of Republicans is old, white men. The stereotype for Democrats is young, hippie freaks, right? Romney plays into the stereotype, thus making him an easier target to run against.

    Strange criteria? That is the stereotype of the Republican Party, old white men. I'm not saying that's accurate, but that is the stereotype.

    Yeah, he was, but he also was very charismatic and a strong leader. Romney has the personality of a piece of cardboard. The GOP can do better, easily.

    it was a choice. the same chioce is made whenever one decides to play the hand given to them at poker rather then fold.

    The 47% remark was regarding campaigning, not policy. That it is taken out of context is as stupid as the Hillary "what difference does it make" talking point.
