That's saying something, because I'm not much of a Ron Paul fan. I respect him on a lot of levels, but I worry about some of his more 'extreme' views on foreign policy. I just don't think turning our back on Israel and giving up strategic military bases would be the best of ideas.
Newt is highly intelligent. He's cunning. He's precise and polished. He's a politician. I'm not going to say he would make a great POTUS. Call me weird, but I want to know that whoever it is that makes Obama a one term President will be willing to take some fairly radical steps to get this economy back on track. Would Newt cut taxes? It's highly likely. Would he cut spending? I believe his experience as House Leader has proven he would. And I really do believe him when he says his policies would bring about $2 a gallon gas. If you really think about it, the application of a little common sense could feasibly bring about $1 a gallon gas. Then again, these are common sense steps that any one of the candidates could, and most likely would, take. If Newt makes it to the general election, I could vote for him with very few qualms, and knowing that it will be mine and my fellow patriots' duty to hold his feet to the fire.
While I fear I may fall further from the graces of my in-laws, two people who I really do respect and admire, I will admit to leaning heaviest towards the "Anybody But Obamney" movement at this point. When I look at his record, it just leaves too many questions. I can't pretend otherwise for now, but it's still a bit of a haul to the general election.
In any event, come November I will support the nominee, plain and simple. We cannot, under any circumstances, afford another 4 years of the pretender-in-chief. A second term for Obama will likely bankrupt this country, financially, socially and Constitutionally. That worries me most of all.
I have long admired Rick Santorum as he has never wavered in his beliefs.
A lot is made of his loss to Casey last go round in PA, but when one looks at the popularity of the Casey family and their legacy and the fact that Casey ran as a pro-life, conservative Dem it wasn’t surprising that he won, especially given the down ticket draw of Obama for Dems.
I am of the belief that we must go with a strong contrast to Obama and Romney doesn’t fit that bill.
Well said and this is what everyone is too afraid to talk about.
It’s because it’s a lot of money and power. Thus, follow the money.
Feel the same way. Heck I would vote for Bozo the Clown!
Oh snap! I enjoyed that.
