… Barack Obama will not have a second term and (thank heavens!):
> ObamaCare will be all but dead.
> The EPA’s destructive and utterly pointless war on fossil fuels will come to a merciful end.
> The erosion of our sovereignty via the welcoming of illegal aliens with open arms will end.

Disillusioned center-left leaning voters may have found a Republican candidate they can get behind.

…Nothing, because he could still turn off those center-left leaning independents with a poor VP choice ala Sarah Palin.

Mitt Romney
John Kerry
Tom Dewey
What do they all have in common?
1, Their names rhyme.
2, They were nominated by their parties becuase they were the most “electable”
3, They are running againt incumbents with low approval ratings
4, They all lost in November … well not Romney ….not yet anyway
History repeating itself?

While I am not disgruntled by Romney’s lead, I am hardly gruntled.
I believe that can probably beat Obama,almost anyone could.
He is probably a decent man, with a decent brain and perhaps a head for business. But he doesn’t inspire anything in me (we all hope for another Reagan). He doesn’t express any “new ideas”. I don’t see him as having any firm beliefs that he would stand up for. His history in Massachusetts is not all that good.
I can only hope for the best. Buck Farrack.

As a rule, incumbents do not lose. Many reasons for this, including the fact that what is often considered a “campaign activity” for challengers is considered a function of the office for an incumbent and can be paid for by the taxpayer, effectively allowing them to double or triple their spending. Whether the poor economy is enough to overcome this rule will make for a unique (but far too long) election season.

If and that is “if” Romney can beat Obama,I think we will all be very sorry to see the further erosion of our Constitutional protections and the proliferation of benefits for big business combined with expensive, liberal social policies.

So what you’re saying is instead of picking your poison you’re picking who will dispense it. Not sure I agree.

Well,no Max D. I don’t see my choice as poison or a dispenser thereof.

Barack Obama will win a second term. Regardless of who wins between Romney and Obama, their policies won’t be that far apart in my opinion. Thus, a Romney White House and an Obama White House will look surprisingly similar.
*sigh*
