I’m predicting that the eventual nominee is going be either Mitt Romney or Rick Perry.
Either one would have no trouble beating obama. We need someone who isn’t afraid to take tough steps to undo the damage that has been done in the last 2 1/2 years.

Fred were you dropped on your head as a child? There are some great meds on the market to help your problems with delusional thinking.

Anyone who thinks obama is leading in the right direction, or for that matter even leading at all, is even more delusional.

You are delusional to think that this problem has only existed for 2 1/2 years. I’m not saying Obama is the cure all for the problem, I’m just saying he stepped into this pile.

Sure Fred. Rick Perry wanted Texas to secede from the Union two years back. He sounds like a *wonderful* candidate for President.
I guess you’re okay with “Romneycare” except when a democrat pushes it and Fox News brands it “Obamacare?”
The Republican nominees are such a trainwreck this time around.

Reagan stepped into as big or a bigger pile than Obama back 1980. After 2 1/2 years things were turning around back then. I don’t remember Reagan pointing a finger at Carter or the Dems everday. (Maybe he did?) The message was how great America is and will be. Obama seems to be in front of the press everyday and lately looks desperate.

Reagan raised taxes ELEVEN times during his Presidency. Taxes are at historic lows. You do the math.

Shhh, Chins, you’re not supposed to be reminding the Dems what a disaster Jimmy Carter was. They’ve been doing their best to forget ever since. If Obama is trying to clean up the pile shouldn’t he be shoveling it up instead of dumping more on the pile? Then the same Dems who want to raise taxes now complain that a Republican president raised taxes. I don’t think it’s possible to satisfy them.

Hell, why not? I don’t believe in hiding anything. What all the politicians in congress and the president are doing right now isn’t working. Maybe the whole lot needs to be replaced starting from the top down?

I’d be very agreeable to throwing out all of congress if we can throw out president Barack Obama too. That sounds like a fair deal. How about it Democrats? Let’s start out fresh.
Pawlenty was never a contender, except in his own mind. Doubt he could carry MN after the mess he made here. Always puzzled at how people believe he is a moderate, when he is as big a right wing nutcase as Bachmann is.

Pawlenty’s failed Governorship should be a case study on what happens when infrastructure is not maintained. It is always the easier route to not raise taxes and let everything around you rot. What needs to be advertised with these so called state tax cuts, is that all other local level taxes are going to rise to support existing infrastructure. Surprisingly Republican don’t mention this. What is even more amazing, are the schmucks who support such polices and are flabbergasted when their roads, schools, and other public infrastructures go into disrepair.
In the simplest term so that our Tea Party members can understand; if you want the snow plowed from your roadways, there is a cost. You can decide not to pay State Taxes, but another cost arise through either higher local taxes or lack of services.

So how high should taxes be? Taxes are high enough they are just spending the money on the wrong things.

I think T-Paw just found his migraine. Poor guy busted his tail for McCain and got dumped for Palin. That should have been a wake up call for him. Come to think of it, he left office, a lot like Palin, about two years ago to chase this elusive dream. Now the rest of us get to pay that price.

Actual discussion this morning: Do you think that there are some sensible Republicans who have a great candidate ready to roll out as soon as the current crop of (insert your favorite word) candidates implode?
Newt is gone.
TPaw is gone.
Sarah P? too coy.
Michelle B? Her husband is going to get busted with a boyfriend any day now.
Perry? The first time he prays for God to tell him whether to secede from something he’s done.
Ron Paul? (who?)
Herman Cain? (black)
The first fiscally responsible socially moderate Republican will win by a landslide. For gosh sakes, I probably vote for him/her.
The repubs should run “other”. “Other” is beating Obama in the polls right now. I agree a landslde is coming.
