    Re: Who do you think will win the Republican nomination?

    I voted for Pawlenty. I like what I've seen him say. Everyone else has some big negatives, either inside the party or outside the party. Problem with Pawlenty, his speaking skills are poor, he's boring. But I think he's bright, balanced and practical. But, I'm not aware of big negatives for Pawlenty, so I went with him.

    Hey, I'm a welfare parasite and I am praying that the GOP will allow me to vote for them. Hell, the government pays a licensed social worker to keep track of my welfare benefits because I can't manage them myself and the benefits I'm receiving now are a Hell of a lot cheaper than keeping me institutionalized.

    The thing is, there isn't a single damned thing any Republican President can do that will threaten my well-being, but if the government and the economy collapse, we're all screwed.

    Besides, some of those GOP guys are starting to get dangerously close to having a rational foreign policy.

    Pawlenty disturbs me. If he has a single original thought in his head, he hides it very well. He doesn't even parrot the good right-wing talking points.

    I don't think Paul appeals to anyone but Internet political junkies. He's a Libertarian who learned the secret handshake and got the GOP campaign money. He's an upstanding citizen, a true statesman and a patriot, but he doesn't actually represent anyone.

    Maybe I'm judging him too harshly from a single appearance, but I don't think his problem is his speaking skills. He's boring because he's not saying anything. I can't even disagree with him properly.

    At least Santorum had the good grace to piss me off.

    Who-so-ever the sacrificial lamb is, the conservatives must be smart enough to choose the one who can do the least damage to the party.
    Maybe Gingrich ??
    Take one on the chin for the good of the party; the 2016 campaign will be interesting.

    I would like to see Cain take the Republican nomination just to send the racists in our country overboard.

    Personally I'm not overly excited about any of the current crop. The lameness is with them.

    I'm actually starting to think Obama might keep his chair.

    Anything can happen.

    A single slip up in a debate, a single contraversy in a campaign can destroy a candidate in a matter of minutes in a 24 hour news cycle.

    Anything can happen.

    Ron Paul-great message, lousy messenger

    other than the danger of Sham wow appointing more childless statist- socialists to the USSC, this would work out well in furthering my ultimate goal of having my good friend win in 2016

    Senator Rob Portman of Ohio-the guy the late great David Broder deemed the most likely GOP winner in 2016
