depends on which issue, there are things I like and dislike about all the canidates, I do not get to pick who the nominee is I get a chance to pick who i think the nominee should be then I just get to choose between obama or that nominee and that is a simple choice for me, not voting for the person who runs against obama is the same as voting for obama

Who will "push back" the federal government's unconstitutional assumption of powers rightly held by the States? Who will take on the problem, and not just dab at the edges of the symptoms?

Surely, among so many who call themselves "Republicans", one will speak and act for the republic?

Jeb Bush.

Seriously — if we have to pick someone with some real baggage, Jeb Bush is a much better conservative than Newt Gingrich.

But no, not seriously, except as I said if we were just picking crappy candidates, Jeb Bush would be a much better one than Newt Gingrich.

I still say Michelle Bachman, or Rick Perry, or Rick Santorum. Even though the three together can’t seem to beat Newt right now. That will all change if one of them can make a surge in Iowa. Look at what McCain did with a surprise 3rd-place finish in Iowa, and a win in New Hampshire.

Gingrich...with a serious chance to win.

Something that I wouldn't have predicted in a million years. It's a powerful testament to what a lame field we have.

We should have a Reagan to vote for now, not a Creature From Beltway Island.

“of the all the republican canidates who do you think would be worse than obama?”

Ron Paul
His economic stuff won't do us any good if we quit defending our nation.

The barbarians WILL come to our shores. Thousands of years of human history guarantees it.

If you really wanted to cut through the chase of primary infighting games; start a poll thread asking if the current Palin/Cain/Gingrich supporters would get behind Perry if he chose Palin as a VP?

Is that question designed to eliminate the consideration of any course of action except voting for a Republican?

are you answering with a question to avoid answering? I feel that any of the canidates listed would be better than obama, some more than others, but if my top choice isn’t the nominee i’m not going to go pout about it and not vote at all or split the vote and waste it on some 3rd party loser

"Newt, because I trust the others less....."

One heck of campaign slogan.

Yes, I'm laughing at myself.......

If you don't like having it done to you, don't do it to me.

We're running out of opportunities to turn this around. To have any chance we need to get the federal government under control. For that to happen, we need to take back authority they've assumed and return it to the States, where it belongs.

The Republican Party establishment appears not to be interested in doing that at all. They want to keep that power in the hands of the federal government, but under their control. They don't want to give it back.

They want me to agree to let them have it because I'm afraid of what Democrats will do with it. Where I come from we call that "extortion".

My sentiments, exactly. I can't express the depth of my disappointment with this race.

Here is my ranking:

Palin
Perry—Gingrich tied
Santorum
Bachmann
(Then we seperate things quite a bit)
Huntsman
(more seperation)
Romney
(a bit of seperation)
Barack Obama—Ron Paul (these 2 are tied)
(Not much difference here)
Kim Jong Il

I want one thing - a national governemt of limited and enumerated powers, according to the original intent of the United States Constitution and it's amendments.

Maybe that's just too nuanced for the GOP.

Good point, more 'clean', yet the 'Bush haters' will have a 'time,' with him, immediately.

Since I want anyone who can beat Obama or because I wanted Cain as the republican candidate?

Definitely not seeing your logic... And there’s really no need to be rude about it either.

Merry Christmas, Milagros!

I voted my principles today on your thread, for the most conservative candidate Michele Bachmann. I have admired her since I first heard of her a few years ago, and I am with her in The TEA Party. I don’t care if people use the old “unelectable” tag, I support true conservatives and she is one.

Cheers!

Newt, because of his grasp of what needs to be done to right the ship, and his inside knowledge of how President Reagan pulled it off so well!
