Why so glum, chum? Haven’t you heard? Mitt Romney’s arrived, and he’s serious this time.

One other perspective:

I pray everyone decides they love America more than they hate Romney.

I know I'm not alone in being one of those who prays everyone decides they fear God more than they fear Obama.

Barack Obama is an absolute promise of hell.

Atta boy. Roll over.

I know the difference between rejoicing and resignation. This article is just too forced.

Never seen anything remotely like this. I'm astounded, frankly. The GOP has walked off a cliff, they're plummeting towards the canyon floor, denying it all all the way down.

Which way are we better of?

Obama is loathed by a whole helluva lot of Americans, even -- maybe especially -- by those who voted for him last time. If Obama wins with a 34% plurality, he's going to have a miserable, weak, combative presidency, when 66% of the votes cast were cast against him. Americans would be pissed at Obama and the Democrats and Republicans. Conservatives would win a major battle, and Congress would go hard right. You think there's rebellion in the air now?

That's how we're better off. Unless, of course, you are paralyzed by Omnipotent Obamaitis, which immediately makes the sufferer roll over to a Republican who agrees philosophically and has a record to prove it, with Obama on five major issues: global warming, abortion, the homosexual agenda, activist judges, and nationalized health care. "Uncle - stop, UNCLE! Obama's worse!"

If it's O vs R, I'm voting third party for the express purpose of doing what I can with my vote to make whichever socialist wins, Obama or Romney, has the biggest vote count AGAINST him, and I'm praying Romney loses, as he is actually the greater evil.

Obama is guaranteed Hell. And that’s if we even reach November! He could pull the plug early and start the dictator-dance at any time before the election.

I’m still holding out hope that someone — anyone — better than Romney can steal the reins and get us back on course. But that hope is rapidly fading.

That leaves us with the probable choice of either Romney or Hell, and I’m not ready for Hell yet. (I expect I’ll get there anyway, but that’s another story.) I’ll wear the clothespin, should the need arise.

But here’s something to consider. You can’t run the office of president all by your lonesome. Not possible. You’ll need a TON of advisors, ministers and consuls, just to draw up your daily schedule.

And since Mitt is such a waffler, who can say that he won’t waffle to the RIGHT when his advisors apply pressure? I think we need to spend a LOT of time studying his friends and advisors and possible Cabinet. Hmm?

We know what we will be getting with obama...absolute destruction of our country.

Do tell. My stars, that man has omnipotent powers! You assume all of America is as cowed as you!

Also remember that it’s still the lesser.

Sad to say, that is pure pretend. Romney is equally evil, made more potent because it's from an enemy within the gates.

We wont have to wait long to find out the truth of the matter.

Romney’s first pick (his VP) will tell the tell of what is to come.

If he picks (as I expect him too) another RINO Yankee like Chris Christie, then my worst fears about Romney will be confirmed.

We shall see! The ball is in Romney’s court now.. lets see if he is smart enough to pick a REAL conservative like Palin as a running mate.

I'll take your response and the lack of earlier responses as a negative on whether there is a President who accomplished more in a second term than a first.

Now to your response. No question that Obama has done more with executive orders and czars than anyone before him. Lame duck status could easily affect this just as it does a legislative agenda. It seems that Obama's actions are wearing on even the moderate Democrats in Congress. If you see an Obama second term, I think you'll see more aggressive opposition to him from both sides of the aisle. I have absolutely zero confidence that Romney will substantially undo the czar positions and opt instead to keep them and put his people in place who will be, if Massachusetts is any guide, only slightly less awful than Obama's appointments. The problem with Romney is that he doesn't disagree in any substantive way with any Obama position. His instincts, like Obama's, are for big-government solutions which he hopes to manage better. The problem is that after Romney puts the Republican seal of approval on these solutions, they become institutionalized, never to be abolished.

This nation is so screwed over by both candidates. If "none of the above - let's pick two others and have a do-over" were on the ballot, it would win in a landslide. Personally, I'll not be responsible for putting either of these catastrophes in office.

You’re uninformed. You should research the history of the Mormon church, with its antagonism toward and contempt of Christianity. The founder of Mormonism referred to Christians as heathens and worse.

You said that I implied I would prefer to vote for Obama. That’s absolutely false, and if you need to resort to untruths to support your candidate, we have nothing to discuss.

Everything you say about Obama is true. However, it’s also true that women in Massachusetts are, even now, getting their cheap abortions thanks to Mitt Romney. Romney is a lying, vicious, phony, abortion-enabling, homosexual-loving, gun-grabbing, tax-raising, global-warming believing liberal. If you believe anything he promises, considering how many times he’s flip-flopped and how easily he lies, you are either very naive or very desperate. You’re free to vote for such a person if you like. I’m not about to.

-

That would shake the world.

That would be outstanding.

Romney will not pick anyone right of center.

This is the year the GOP -e plans on putting conservatives in their place - under the bus. They were not at all happy with Tea party types upsetting the status quo in 2010 and they put Romney forth to send a message.

CommerceComet,

“Obama vs. Romney - clear evidence that our nation has been judged by God and found wanting.”

Regarding your tagline - I agree completely.

I can’t see much in your post that I disagree with, except that I just can’t see Palin, Demint etc going along with a leftward push. Do you remember when Bush tried to appoint his liberal secretary to the Supreme Court? Remember the pushback from all of us that got him to pull her nomination? How about his moronic “I will see you at the signing” in regards to immigration, how did that work out for him? Now imagine Palin on the sidelines, watching his every move. There is no way he would have the balls to fight her publicly, esp in his first term. Now would he maybe try to undermine her? Of course, its in his, or at least his advisers, DNA. Would he be successful? I really doubt it, as there are millions of Rep and conservatives that would push right back at him. And all that that would do is create a primary challenge, ad I don’t think he would want that, do you?

Washington Times has been in the tank for Romney for a LONG time. They headlines some outrageous and flimsy hit pieces on Newt and Santorum that other, more respectable media didn’t even bother picking up. I believe they had an editorial last week claiming Newt ran the worst campaign in history, or some such nonsense. They’re right up there with Drudge, Coulter, National Review and much of FOX News as people who were in the tank for Romney hardcore and set out to destroy his opponents in the primary.

LOL, what an idiot. “Tired of being tired?” What does that even mean? Americans need to get more sleep? It’s not “about” the economy, Romney, unless you think Republicans shouldn’t win the presidency any time the economy is going good. It’s about the Constitution and Judeo-Christian values. When those are respected, the economy falls into line on its own. The economy doesn’t need “fixing up” by a big government bureaucracy. Newt was ready to REFORM Social Security, welfare, food stamps, the income tax, the whole management style of government, the EPA, the space program, etc. Romney hasn’t made a single original or meaningful proposal. He is the candidate of the status quo, which is why he was backed so resoundingly by K Street and Wall Street, who are making billions off of our debt on the backs of the taxpayer. Romney is the last thing our country needs from the Republican party right now. The decay will continue and we’ll catch up with Greece sooner than later.

indexing the minimum wage to inflation and that alone would be a disaster

This is one issue on which Romney may be correct (he may not be even aware of it). I have seen actual figures proving the current minimum wage would have been lower than current level if it was indexed for CPI from day 1. The reason is congress has raised minimum wage levels in larger jumps than rise in CPI in corresponding periods.

You are absolutely on the mark. The VP pick will be a glimpse into the future as to what a Romney presidency will look like. I hope and pray it is not a RINO like Christy or Pawlenty.

   just remember that the lesser of two evils is still evil

  and "Romney - He's the lesser of two evils!" just isn't an inspiring campaign slogan.
