Governor Romney might be a transitional candidate. Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan might be the kind of candidates around which the GOP can coalesce down the road (both have policy ideas, but they will need to accumulate some policy successes to gain national awareness).
    I think Eric Cantor is a robotician (an invented politician who is nothing but a sock puppet). He came out of nowhere and was given a national spotlight by the neocon Republicans to do their biddings.

    Most of his rhetoric is only neocon talking points. He's much too far right to appeal to the centrist votes, imho.

    Add a Lee Atwater, James Carville campaign manager, someone not shy to drive the message hard and you have the possibility for a 50 state landslide.

    Obama now has a vast public record of failure and contempt for America.

    All his slickness can be negated with a Reagan Conservative candidate willing to politically annihilate Obama's sheer incompetence. Someone that will do it without mercy to protect the nation and begin a restoration of the nation in accordance with its founding documents.

    Even Matthews, Olbermann, Fineman at MSNBC projectile vomited after the last speech.
    That says volumes.

    Who will be that candidate?
    No idea. It could be an unknown.
    It could be Sarah Palin. I like Michelle Bachmann too. Jan Brewer?

    Saying that Obama has contempt for America is about as low as you can go on the partisan hackery scale. Would you care to offer some concrete proof for your slur? If not, then it is you who has contempt for America.

    Reagan had a tough first two years, but he recovered. Paul Ryan, Tim Pawlenty, and Mitch Daniels are the only candidates I think could defeat President Obama. I think Romney and Palin and Bachmann are too ideological, which isn't a bad thing, but it hurts when you alienate voters. Mitch Daniels wouldn't alienate a fly. He's too dry, too gray, too pragmatic to offend anyone (excepting establishment Republicans/Democrats and conservative/liberal activists who can't stand pragmatic politics)

    Have you read President Obama's books? He doesn't have contempt for America as he envisions it in the future, but he has contempt for America "the status quo".

    You are silly if you think we are a perfect country. Every right thinking person should have contempt for our current problems and a wish to improve the country (by whatever they consider to be improvement since we do not all share the same vision)

    Obama is a constitutional lawyer. Yet he ignores The Constitution.

    Alone, the manner he shoved ObiKare down our throats, using a parliamentary procedure Byrd warned Clinton not to use because it was not intended for the purpose, and after Brown was elected to Dead Kennedy's seat... illustrates a contempt for the American people and the law of the land. Nevermind this type of crap was never intended by the Founders.

    This is a decent start.



    How Unconstitutional is Barack Obama? Let me count the ways : Stop The ACLU

    The guy doesn't like America.
    It's why he wants to remake it.

    I guess Sarah Palin. She knows how to boast herself in campaigns...

    The Status Quo for 200 years was a Constitutional Republic. Since FDR it has been a representative Democracy.
