Romney’s no slam dunk for a Constitutional justice. Look what Bush almost did with, who was it, Myers?

Agreed. But Bush backed off on that one. Romney might as well (one time when a flip-flop would be welcome). We may get a squish like Justice Kennedy from Romney, but we probably wouldn't get a commie like Kagan.

Romney? Why? IMO, that would be worse than John McCain.
Obama, for all his faults, has one thing in his favor: his administration has awoken many people (young & democrat) to the corruption of our government.*
Changing that little letter from D to R is exactly the wrong remedy; the Republicans *as a group* are actually WORSE than the Democrats, consider:
1 — Abortion, it’s been on the official Republican party-plank since the mid-80s... the BIGGEST stride against it happened with that big stir caused by the Planned Parenthood vids.
— GW, for all his many faults, is credited with making the biggest strides in that area with the “Mexico City” policy; but that IS NOT THE PARTY.
2 — Constitutionalism #1, the TSA was ramped up on GW’s watch; and their SOP is a blatant violation of the 4th Amendment.
3 — Constitutionalism #2, how many extra-constitutional agencies have been disbanded, EVER? (And that’s not even considering the existence of contra-constitutional ones like ATF.)
4 — “Fiscal responsibility,” it is shameful that Rand Paul’s proposal is the biggest, most famous, proposal to cut spending.

* While what he is doing is unarguably terrible, consider that the breadth/potency of the corruption that has allowed (and continues to allow) things like Fast & Furious cannot exist without support, and involvement, from BOTH parties. This means that the Republican party is not better than the Democrat, but better at hiding their filth and blaming others.

We don’t NEED a change-of-president, we need a change of what-we-will-suffer (allow).
