Meanwhile conservatives who pretend they have America's best interests at heart watch their similarly fake candidates continue to embarrass America, while liberals who actually do have the nation's best interests at heart look forward to yet another hilarity-filled day courtesy of the GOP nomination clown show. :-)

Candidates on the Right might actually get somewhere if they came clean with the American public (for once) and got their PACs to re-name themselves along the lines of 'Supporting America's Future & GOP Comedy' and 'American Freedom and Comedy.'

If the Right honestly stated the reality of their campaigns - that they are no more than a mystery-donor funded traveling comedy show, heck, even I'd donate to the cause. :-)

Get used to hearing President Romney and Vice President Rubio next year. The progressive, trickle up poverty economic policy will come to an abrupt end on January 20th 2013...

They want to crucify him because he’s tapped into that average everyday American Tea Party, grass-roots movement that has said enough is enough of the establishment.

Yes, America needs someone outside the beltway like Newt Gingrich who refused out of principle to work as a lobbyist, settling instead to offer his services as an 'historian' for Freddie Mac for a modest salary of $22,000 a month. Newt's influence in congress was also negligible, which is why everybody should vote for him.

Wait, I'm confused...

Newt is arrogant, slippery and a total fake. Romney has no morals at all, is a liar and a fake. Paul is not a fake but he is a loon. Santorum is insane.

That is your republican candidates. Best thing to happen for Obama in a long, long time. The republican party is not longer an organized party, its a freak show.

Moderates who would vote for Romney will go with Obama if Gingrich is the nominee. Why do hard core "true" conservatives think they are the majority in the country? Why didn't Hillary get the 2008 nomination even though she was probably the more qualified candidate (and frankly, probably would have been a better president?) That's right, because The anti-Hillary vote would have got McCain elected. Sarah Palin? Fear of a potential President Palin cost McCain the election. The anti Newt vote will be every bit as significant as the anti-Hillary would have been. That all American sweetheart herself, Ann Coulter, has written "vote Newt, re-elect Obama." It speaks volumes about the present state of the GOP that so many are so blinded by anti- Mormonism that they can't see this. If Romney was a Southern Baptist this thing would be long over.

Let's face it - the tea party was one of the best things to happen to the Progressive movement in the U.S. thanks to how they are ripping the Right vote apart, and probably the worst thing to happen to the Regressive conservative movement.

Besides Newt. 

And the global recession that sparked under their watch. 

And the 13 million unemployed and trillions in debt they created. 

And Michelle Backmann,  Herman Cain,  Rick 'banning sodomy is more important than creating jobs' Santorum.

Who ever win the Rep nomination, Obama can not be beaten easily. According his state of union speech, he will create more jobs and balance the budget. Without him , US economy will never recover and unemployment will be sky rocketed. Bush destroyed economy. His reckless spending made a mountain of debt. Many people lost the jobs and homes. It is unthinkable for getting another president like Bush. They have no solutions for current problems.

Obama have found Bin Laden and punished him. He saved some American hostages too. He is better and capable than Bush.

Boston tea party have finished more than a century.Therefore Obama will reinvent himself and becoming the president of the USA again. It is unstoppable.

@Debate over whether Romney is "a liar and a fake."

He can lapse into intellectually dishonesty. For example, before the recent revelations about the true extent of his personal wealth (total last eight U.S. presidents' holdings and double that figure), he tried to connect with voters by reminding them that he, too, is unemployed. Being unemployed meant something much more life or death to those voters than it does to Romney. There's actually a more honest, and not so loaded word, for a man in his mid-60s with possibly a quarter of a billion dollars in accounts around the world. It is "retired", comfortably, thank you. It sure ain't "unemployed"!

But if you want to get technical, you could just say that a candidate now claiming views on health care access, women's reproductive rights, etc. that are opposite what he espoused while he was getting into office last time--without accounting for such drastic changes--is just playing the voters with rhetorical slieights of hand. Was it the real Romney before, and the fake one now, or the other way around? It's the voters' call.

I wonder if all the people on Japan Today that just spent months ripping Olympus for laundering money through the Cayman Islands are going to be thrilled when they hear about the places Mitt keeps his cash.

Newt should forget that moon colony nonsense and campaign to make Cayman Islands the 51st state! If that ever happened, then Mitt wouldn't have to worry about perceptions of how his money is offshore and off the books with worldwide accounts and charity funding international missionary trips. Maybe he could just run for head of the EU, IOC, IMF, France, a local LDS chapter, or some such joint. Why does he want to work for the U.S. in particular, and what's in it for most voters, including the truly unemployed?

Besides 'Obama must go,' 'I'm unemployed,' and 'Gingrich is a liar,' what other Important policy planks has Mitt described that are going to deliver jobs?

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

If America is to have any hope, Romney must be elected. Obama is steering America towards the cliff of European style socialism, which we are currently watching unravel in the debt crisis. Gingrich has attacked Romney's capitalist roots, which makes him unfit for any office.

Romney will bring the solutions needed to create jobs: Cut taxes on the job creators, cut corporate taxes, cut capital gains taxes and cut the death tax. Do away with public health care, social security, medicaid and medicare. Eliminate the Departments of Commerce, Energy and Education. Appoint conservative justices to the Supreme Court who will ensure that we are able to use unlimited corporate funds in donations, in order to keep the Democrats marginalized. Then work on overturning Roe v Wade.

Then we need to make a serious boost in defense spending. I'm thinking at least a 600% increase. Obama has gutted the military and left America vulnerable. We need to ensure victory in the upcoming war with Iran, and with any other rogue nations holding our fossil fuels hostage.

what other Important policy planks has Mitt described that are going to deliver jobs?

Actually, the man has published a rather large plan. The man is a successful businessman and politician who helped his state lose the nickname 'taxachussetts'. To argue that he would be unqualified to supervise economic recovery rings pretty desperate, IMHO.

Jp4, taxes were cut on the Job Creators.

The cuts were not deep enough to have the intended effect. I would recommend taking the marginal tax rate down near 0% for high net worth individuals.

"the cuts were not deep enough...taking the rate down near 0%"

That would give a few individuals more disposable income. But I don't often see the wealthiest individuals being good stewards of their resources. Look at the doctor here in j4p4n that was able to buy a 21 year old's kidney for himself via the mob. If he had lower taxes and more cash to pump into his own body, he could have harvested and implanted all the kid's organs outright and maybe doubled his lifespan. Where's the evidence that 0% taxes leads straightaway to altruistic (not selfish) behavior? The doctor would have been giving out his own vital organs in gratitude for tax breaks?

j4p4nFTW - "I would recommend taking the marginal tax rate down near 0% for high net worth individuals."

I think sushisake#3 might be on to something. President Obama might have a chance to still win big if he can force all the rich people to buy their own insurance (from comapnies which our government owns, but keeps ownership a secret) and then just gives waivers to poor people and people who can't afford to pay income tax. It is a bold plan, but it could work.

Neither Romney nor Gingrich could survive without the other. Romney thrives as those establishment Republicans who remember Newt panic with horror at the thought of him in the White House: anyone - ANYONE - would be preferable. Gingrich thrives as those Tea Party Republicans see the establishment turn to naught the very fundamentals of what they were convince had been an unstoppable revolution. White-hot anger is apparent there, and some on the right are no doubt thanking God that the guillotine is no longer in fashion. The revolution is beginning to eat its children.

Romney, the most vetted candidate in years, remains the most unknown. Gingrich, the insurgent, has had his infidelities laid out extensively, but most care not to know. They make a good pair, the cipher and the Machiavellian. This is turning out to be a most entertaining spring and summer.

Ben_Jackinoff: You seem to forget what happened in 2000 and 2004.

Just my opinion, but this is the last hoorah for the Republican Party as it stands today. They will win in future elections but they won't look like they do now and their candidates will be nothing like they are now. They have drifted too far to the right and they will even call one of their own a moderate as an insult. I can only imagine what impact that has on actual moderates who might be open to voting for either party. They are fighting tooth and nail over a smaller radical base that will continue to decline (although they will still be vocal) as the years pass. Eventually they will break up or wise up and realize that they can't continue to move to the right and still have enough people left to vote them into the White House.

In the last election I actually admired McCain and I even defended him on this board from the over-the-top criticism that some radical Democrats were dishing out. I did this even thought I knew I was voting for Obama. I happened to respect both men. Fast forward 4 years and I really can't see any Republican that I would even consider voting for. They own all the circus freaks.....Bachmann, Palin, Cain, etc. These people are just embarrassing to me. Romney will probably win the nomination based on the "I'm the only one who can beat Obama" meaning he's the only one who can win moderates. And the Republicans seem to hate him for it. The choice seems to be to vote for Newt, another circus of an embarrassment, or vote for a guy they hate to beat a guy they hate even more on the other side.

We're going to see Obama win again and we're going to continue to see Republicans feel relevant by obstructing anything and everything he does in order to keep the small base they've managed to radicalize into the corner forever. But based on demographics it's just a matter of time before they fade away. If and when Republicans start to find a new base to cater to then we'll see them return to the White House. I might even vote for them.

Superlib, best post of the day (and i mean that even though I know you think I'm 'radical.' :-)

Two words: Tea Party.

They have radicalized the Right, marginalized their moderates, and shafted the GOP's chances of winning back the WH.

Serrano, I think no Democrat is challenging your president because they know when they're on to a good thing. They remember how he came virtually out of nowhere and won the WH on his first attempt. Candidates like that don't come by regularly.

Sure, Obama has not exercised his full potential, largely due to what I believe is a potentially dangerous racist undertone flowing in the background on the Right (you see it appear every so often - the insults, the name calling, the distorted labels, the lack of basic respect for the office of THIS president) that has galvanized the worst anti-America, anti-common sense obstructionism Americans have probably ever seen.

All that aside, and despite the fact that neither Obama or anyone for that matter is perfect, he's the best the Dems have got and it's pretty clear they're largely ok with that.

Superlib - 'They [the Right]  own all the circus freaks.....Bachmann, Palin, Cain, etc. These people are just embarrassing....'

Couldn't agree more, and what disturbs me is that these characteristics are also held by conservatives in general. Conservatives see themselves, their ideas, attitudes and characteristics in these morally bankrupt, intellectually derelict clown candidates - that's why they support them.

Which doesn't give me much hope for America's future unless the Right is kept shut out of power.

The left sure isn't perfect but it's way, way better than the economic, intellectual and moral decay that would be sped up should the GOP win.

Good post, although I disagree with some parts of it. Romney is not a radical. I think he has a very good chance of winning in the general election, if given the chance by his party. As governor, the guy made a success out the shambles that was his state. He has also been successful at business at that ultimately is good for people that want jobs.

I wasn't attacking Romney, I was attacking those within his party who wouldn't feel comfortable voting for Romney, and how they are splitting the party and dragging it down. In my eyes there are too many Republicans who have been sold on the notion that compromise and moderate are bad words. And it worries me that so many of them still vote with their bibles in their hands. As long as there is a large enough group of those types of Republicans I don't see them winning the White House back anytime soon, I see them winning smaller elections and then trying to disrupt things.

As governor, the guy made a success out the shambles that was his state. He has also been successful at business at that ultimately is good for people that want jobs.

I left his name off the circus list intentionally. And to be honest with you I was waiting to really learn about him until after the primaries. In the past the business angle would be a slam dunk for me, but nowadays I'm too much of a pessimist. I have no doubt that Romney can create personal wealth, but I don't think "good businessman = job creator" anymore. I think too many times "good businessman = job destroyer so there is more wealth for the people at the top and the company itself."

Until I saw some of the debates, I figured Obama was a shoe in. However, Romney does play to the moderates, much more so than Obama does. If, and it is still an if, Romney gets the nomination, he will have a very good chance of gettting into office.

In the past the business angle would be a slam dunk for me, but nowadays I'm too much of a pessimist.

There are certainly not too many optimists in this day and age anywhere. In Romney's case, he managed to save and improve many companies that would have otherwise gone under. In the end, that kind of work has to help the economy, not hurt it. More healthy companies usually means more healthy jobs. Romney would certainly make the election interesting for me to watch. The other Republicans? Not so much, for the very reasons you clearly outlined above.

Disagree, They are doing Mitt Romney the biggest favor they could for the man. If he is in fact the Republican nominee the grilling he is going to get from the media is going to be merciless. He is 'wall street" in his business background and and anyone who doesn't believe he is going to painted as an out of touch wall street elitist, job detroying venture capitalist by the Media in the general election hasn't been paying attention to how the Media operates. He also has taken away one of the most potent attack lines a Republican candidate has on President Obama. He is in fact the godfather for Obama's healthcare reform law. The law that inspired the Tea party protests in the first place and mobilized them to become activists in their protests against it passing. The law that is still highly unpopular with the majority of the American people. Being grilled on that is also doing him a favor at this stage to find out where he really stands on it. Is he in fact going to roll it back or cede the issue to Obama?

I'm glad the "radical" Tea Party types are putiing him through the ringer. He's going to being a tough damn candidate for Obama to beat afterwards having to go through the experience now befor the Media gets it chance at him latter. He'll be able to deal with it then as a man who will fight back which is what the general Republican electorate is looking for now.

I haven't watched any of the debate since I was traveling around and still trying to get situated. I figured I'd learn more about Romney when things settled down. I'm interested in seeing how he can woo moderates as well as appeal to the conservative base in the Republican Party.

Well I got the impression that "moderate" was a bad thing hearing Santorum say that over and over again as an insult to Romney. As far as being "out of touch," wasn't that what other candidates were saying about him, especially after the $10,000 bet?

Did the media bias create those words for the candidates?
