It won’t do any good to run a more conservative candidate if they can’t beat Obama.

With the way Obama is going a paper bag will be able to beat him by this time next year.

Submit your list of conservatives that Republicans want to vote for in the primary, and that can win the Republican primary, but are "too" conservative for you.

If it’s Perry vs Obama, then it’s an easy choice...Perry all the way. Same goes for just about anyone the GOP might nominate.

But just once it would be nice to have a candidate who is conservative on immigration. I don’t think we’ve had one since Coolidge, or Eisenhower. We are not going to win the Hispanic vote. The question is how badly we will lose it, and if we can do better with whites by pursuing conservative immigration reform.

Bush was a shameless panderer, and the best he could manage with the allegedly natural conservative latino vote was maybe 40% in 2004 (he did NOT win 44% as was first incorrectly claimed). The GOP can either enact conservative immigration reform (i.e. reduce legal immigration and no path to citizenship for illegals) and have a fighting chance going forward, or they can continue to accept unending mass immigration and face demographic oblivion.
