“...right now we have no strong GOP candidates.”

Wouldn’t matter. Just look at threads at this site alone. Romney is a RINO; Trump is a clown; Palin is unelectable... fans of one can’t find a good word to say about the others. So how do we come together by 11/12 to support the eventual nominee against an unopposed candidate in a united Dem party? Conservatives and Republicans will assure their own defeat against a very vulnerable incumbent.

That's what the debates are for. All these argruments are too early. We can't come to any intelligent conclusions yet.

This article immediately raised a red flag with me because it seems so out of character. Williams usually comments on economics, education, law and social issues. Electoral politics is out of his ballpark.

My point is that on these threads, fans of any potential candidate (none having yet so much as announced), only attack the others without setting out a case for their own candidate. The snipes are already past boring and, again, not ONE has yet announced. Whoever emerges from the primaries as the nominee is going to be awfully bloodied up, while The One is unscathed. November ‘12 is a long way off.

Although I’m not sure the Won is unscathed, I agree with the rest that we take shots at those we don’t like. It’s kinda the point of the forum. We have to distinguish between the candidates and that’s done in a rough-and-tumble way around here, that’s for sure.

I don’t support Trump for president, for instance, but I sure like his aggressiveness and criticize a lot of our own people for their lack of same. So is that a problem?

Obama has the black and latino vote all sewed up. Throw in union people along with the commies/socialists among us, those that depend on gov’t handouts and self-hating Americans over the slavery issue...and its easy to see how Obama can pull it off. And the icing on the cake... MSM who continues to brainwash many idiots among us.

Unless you are a returnee, your signup date is after the great purge of ‘07 (or was it ‘08?). Suffice to say, sometimes the civil discourse isn’t.

The independents and whites put him in and they are going to take him out. I don’t think there will be many “white guilt” votes out there in 2012. By the time Trump gets through with the Rosie O’Donnell ghetto beatdown there will be no independents left and if Trump runs he will peel off Democrat votes.

By Next Novemeber I’m betting its anybody but Obama time.

The Soros funded MoveOn.Commie pulls a “fake but accurate” bit of fraud and they DARE spin wild tales of “conspiracies to deny Obama’s natural born citizenship status”.

They have their OWN Stalinist fabricators of fraud to steal the 2012 election.

This could happen, but not if we unite behind and help all we can our best candidate. We have plenty of very good ones to get behind. We have more good young talent in the GOP then we have ever had, lets not blow it.

No, I started in 2008. I try to keep it civil. I don't like to fight with other conservatives. I like to work together with other conservatives. I've had enough fighting with marxists and libs to last a lifetime already. FR is great because they zot the libs. I love that!

Those people that Williams mentioned already voted for Gore and Kerry. Percentage-wise and especially their distribution, I think are not enough to have 0bama win by default. Besides, presidential election is still decided state by state. 0bama is likely to lose “Bush States” that he won: FL, OH, NC, VA, MO. My concern is NV and CO, judging from the Senate election last year.

And...don’t you understand all the dissension here at FR is calculated fodderall?

Leftist Obots are running wild in disguise at FR.

Their mission is to tear at the fabric, disrupt any unity, definitely head off any building of critical mass in support of a strong GOP contender.

Look, you’ve never known such low lifes as militant leftists—they will lie, shapeshift, sell their own mother to achieve their objective.

Masking as highly principled conservatives—rigid in their “convictions”, while listing every negative on the strongest GOP contenders under some ‘purist litmus test’ is a cake walk for them.

Their religion is Divide and Conquer.

We are infested with cyber termites, aka Obots, at FR.

Stay keen.

MoveOn.org puts this crap out and then this thread is started with:

“Absent a STRONG GOP nominee Osama will win handily in 2012.

And right now we have no strong GOP candidates.”

Wow, use of that tired mantra should put a smile on George Soros’ face.

I don’t know who wrote this, but there are some things wrong with the assertions. Blacks, liberals, and Democrats, as well as unions are mostly all the same group. Most blacks are Democrats, liberals are mostly Democrats, and unions are Democrats and consist of some black members as well.

Well. First off, let me just say mea culpa, and apologize to you all, and to your Mr Williams, for causing distress and for incorrectly maligning him.

That said, I was not entirely wrong.

There is another Walter E. Williams who is (was, actually, as he apparently died a few years ago) as I described, a black DC-centric Democrat.

He was the mayor of the District of Columbia, and when running for reelection was defeated in a primary by none other than Marion Barry; Barry was endorsed in that primary by none other than The Washington Post.

See here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Washington

and here - http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/local/longterm/library/dc/barry/78endors.htm

Unbeknown to me, because I left DC in late 2000, the Walter E. Washington I meant (and thought you all were talking about) died in 2003.

So. Again my apologies.

But while I was wrong, sort of, I was not drunk. Neither am I insane nor am I a liberal idiot. I just remembered another Walter Williams.

And no, I have no idea whether the two are related.

Well, crap. I have apparently had the same brain fart two days running. Walter E. Williams is not related to Walter E. Washington. They are not the same man, and I have no earthly idea how I confused the two. This is truly embarrassing.

I’ll take my well deserved beating now, and just kind of slink off into the corner here . . .
