I agree, but the real problem is that people don’t realize that the leftist propaganda machine is a lose-lose situation, so they blame whatever they wish whenever they lose, sort of like a little kid. Frankly, candidates could prove fine to me, but the GOP as a party is pretty much as bad as the Democrats for really just willing to toss away the war for losing the battle. It’s really pathetic

What difference does it make now?

It is called the rule of law, without which, you have anarchy.

Two wrongs don’t make a right, unless you’re a Democrat, in that case you are on the wrong site.

As for Chester Arthur, the records proving his father’s foreign birth were not available until well after Arthur was out of office.

There is evidence that Arthur deliberately hid these facts, as it was rumored at the time of his running that he was ineligible, but it could not be proven.

Sorry, but after the Kenyan, there is no way i would support Rubio.

At some point, the corrective course of action must be made, and the law upheld.

And, just who is going to uphold the rule of law? The Democrats?

Look, we’re barely 3 weeks from the past failure of an election, and I’m sick of this meme already about who is going to run in 2016. I’m also sick of the purist attitude coming from some on here already. They won’t vote for this one or that one and Good God - we’ve lost 2 elections in a row - and unlike the Demoncrats - we eat our own already. Yeah, they believe in abortion on the left, but our side cannibalizes anyone on our side who runs. I’ve read about Chester Arthur, and have not read that he tried to conceal where his father was born.

Give it a rest already, will you? Rubio hasn’t announced he is going to run - and if he does, I suspect that FReepers will dissect him and spit him out as they have done all our candidates.

Sorry if someone pissed in your Wheaties this morning, but I am not the one making a Federal case about this. I have stated a simple, legal, Constitutional fact.

I did not criticize Rubio for his positions.

Going to Iowa has a meaning. Otherwise, why would a Senator from FL go to IA?

If he means to try to be President , he can forget it, and so can the GOP-L (L is for Losers)

Why would an ex-governor go to Iowa? Remember Sarah Palin? She went there and didn’t run. His trip means nothing other than a fundraising at this point.

And, no one pissed in my Wheaties. Who pissed in yours? Some on here think they have all the answers, and don’t. Others have a purist attitude and no one is ever going to be good enough for their puritanical viewpoint. Therefore, we continue to lose election after election, and get stuck with the likes of zero and his ilk.

I agree also. Romney told the truth, and he certainly had the right to do so even if some thought he shouldn't have spoken out. I was personally disgusted with the criticisms made by Jindall, Rubio, and Christie. Christie certainly aided and abetted Obama when he needed it most! They could have kept their criticisms to themselves and done constructive work to restore the Republican Party. They have done more harm and brought more ridicule to Republicans than the remarks by Romney.

For the past two elections we have chosen candidates who tried to be the nice guy and acted as if they had no backbone. It was tantamount to sending an innocent child into a den of rattlesnakes and telling him to be nice and the snake won't bite him. We all knew Obama and his campaign organizers have no regard for the truth and will do whatever it takes to win. If I understand the ones criticizing Romney now, they are suggesting that we lie down and let the Democrats stomp us while we act nice and trusting. That game doesn't appeal to me...I'm ready to fight fire with fire, and if Obama has to face the truth about himself so be it. I won't support apologists for Republicans, but I will support someone who is willing to be strong and stand up for what is right for the United States. They must also be willing to treat as serpents the Democrats who act like rattle snakes, and that includes Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi!

The GOP needs to support conservative ideas, but they are undermined by 30 years of Teacher Union inspired brainwashing of generations of our children (who are becoming voters).
People lost much of their pride and shame, so they do look for a hand out instead of looking to earn their own stuff.

We have been fighting Santa Clause government from Democrats for the better part of 60 years and that is very difficult to compete with when you are not offering to give things away.

Conservatives and the GOP are in a tough bind, and these voters may vote their handouts as the country sinks like a rock.

Our new immigrants unlike the old ones go through no Ellis Island and have this great big social system to attach to and that is bad. We are not getting talent, we are getting dependents. These dependents and their extended families all want their dole and vote accordingly. Another part of what kills the GOP/
