There is a republican candidate who is drawing crowds from 1,000 to 5,000 where ever he holds a town hall. He’s been doing this for a couple months now.

“I intentionally posted this to prove how we are screwed and stuck with McCain again ... and no Palin to pull us out or give us hope.”

IMO Mittens is worse than McLame. Doesn’t matter though, many here would rather Obama be re-elected than Mittens.

I don’t think our country will make it through 4 more years of BO. If BO wins this will probably be the last election we ever have for President.

Will a 3rd party win this time? Probably not. Vote 3rd party to keep whichever of the two lying, backstabbing, abortion-supporting, gun-grabbing statists that do win get much less than a majority.

The way I see it.

Romney will be the nominee and will lose but enough 3rd party and write in voters can save the down ticket races.

I just don’t think the GOP has the courage to win the white house and face the wrath of liberals.

Does that republican candidate have a chance of winning the nomination? Does he have the national organization to conduct a real campaign? Heck he didn’t even manage to get on the ballot in all 50 state primaries.

Well. Uh. How long has it taken FR to raise $37k for this freepathon? That's $0.037 million. Campaigns need 100's of millions.

Look to history, the script is proven. This will be the last election (ok free election) if BO wins.

Actually, the only scenario I can see in which a third party push on the right would not simply throw the election to Obama would be if the Libertarian Party nominated Ron Paul. He’d pull a hefty youth vote, mostly drawn from Obama’s 2008 vote plus a don’t-nominate-RINOs protest vote, presumably at Romney’s expense, and the usual 1-3% who vote Liberterian anyway. Even on that, the devil is in the details: Would the youth vote defection form Obama to Paul throw some states into Romney’s column? Or would the anti-RINO protest vote push some states from the Romney column to Obama? Could Paul win any states (or pick up an EV in Maine or Nebraska?) enough to toss the election to the House of Representatives? And in that case (which would end up realistically being Romney vs. Obama) which party controls a majority of the delegations?

So did Ralph Nader. Just like Ron Paul, the guy could get large numbers of naive college kids to turn out for his rallies - unfortunately those kids are not so good at actually voting. They like to do the fun stuff, not so much the actual trudging to the primary sites and casting a ballot.

Ron Paul is a non factor. He simply holds too many wacky positions to attract mainstream conservative support.

Probably too soon to say. I’ve been hoping that some good conservatives are working behind the scenes, and will come up with a candidate that we can get behind.

Sarah Palin is an obvious name, either as organizer or as candidate, but she certainly won’t say anything at this stage. She did speak up once, when she threw her support behind Newt, but unfortunately Newt just couldn’t seem to cut it, after some initial success.

The difficulty is that, as we’ve seen on numerous threads for the past month, conservatives are divided on what they want, and the media have been pretty successful at playing on those divisions. This won’t work unless the conservatives can be united behind one candidate.

But I don’t see much choice. The Republican party has been getting worse and worse for the past 50 years, with the exception of Reagan, who pushed his way in against the wishes of the party establishment. Romney is by far the worst choice they have ever made. He is very little better than the Communist Muslim illegal Obama.

Romney wrecked Massachusetts worse than any Democrat governors had been able to do, putting through both gay marriage and Romneycare which his Dem predecessors had failed to do. And he did zero to fix the Mass. economy, while appointing flaming liberal judges to the courts.

We just can’t afford to go through this corrupt GOP mess yet again, whether Romney wins or loses. It’s not that they are really the stupid party. They have become the corrupt party. They would far rather lose than let someone into the White House who might try to straighten things out.

Bears repeating.
All the big talk of teaching the GOP a lesson and all that will be worth squat if we have no Constitutional Republic. If Obama wins we are totally gone.

One thing the communists know is how to bring down a country. Whats funny is they do the same thing, and ‘conservatives’ do the same thing time after time. The communists win and the conservatives can’t figure out what happened.

If you want a different result out of the GOP you have to control the GOP.

That's a good thought. I can't see a scenario where anyone other than Romney or Obama will be President, so let's hope Romney makes an acceptable choice for VP.

If Obama wins the Presidency, the Dems will probably win the House and hold the Senate. How many people go to a presidential vote just to vote down ticket? Not enough to change an election.

Virgil Goode is a step in the right direction for the Constitution Party, but they have a long long way to go before they will be taken seriously in most peoples’ eyes. In 2008 they ran Zippy the Wonder Dog and I think the guy who ran as his running mate was the actor who played the Blueberry in the old Fruit of the Loom commercials.

What? Between taking Obammy orally, or letting Mittens enter you from behind? Of course there's a choice. Choose not to be a queer. Vote for Virgil Goode. Your mouth and butt will thank you for choosing to stand up and be a man.
