I blame Bush, and the GOP in general for not cultivating a field of young up and coming Conservatives. Most of those that ran are retreads or slightly off from what was needed.

This election was on the economy and not a single one of them have run on it, except Cain, whos not out. The rest have spent way too much time fucking around with social issues that are irrelevant at this point. I will give Gingrich and Perry props for having ideas, but they haven't stayed on issue with them.

The results of Iowa's caucues may have given us the GOP tickent for 2012.

The story of my life is making do with tools that aren't exactly what I need to do the job.
We must keep pressure on them and be the squeaky wheel, they are populists and will bend to pressure.

It will be interesting to see where her support (and that of Perry) goes. Together, they had about 16% of Iowa.

Bet it doesn't go to Mittens.

This is normal. The field will start to self groom after Iowa and continue. It is how the system works. The system will not work if all of them or even two of them remain. Only one can win and the others need to go away. Some of the more selfish types (like Paul?), might ruin our chances by running as independents, I hope they think more highly of their country than they do of themselves.

Santorum is not a good pick for VP. He doesn't give Romney either serious Tea Party heft nor Hispanic appeal. He would also freak moderates out over his rather extreme view of birth control.

And you commies picked Lyin' Biden why? Because of his intelligence?

Suspect it might go to Santorum by default. I already received a message from Santorum (with Townhall's backing and name included) asking for donations.

That forum is a powerful one, with regular contributors to their newsletters like Thomas Sowell, Cal Thomas, etc. It looks like they're supporting Santorum now as the viable conservative alternative to Mitt.

Paul didn't do it last time and he won't this time.

Because we needed a comedic distraction for the bourgeois while we implemented the proletariat uprising and seized control of the production and distribution centers of the economy.

All hail the glorious revolution! Viva Zapata!!

I wouldn't put any money on that.

Think about Mittens 'Running the country like a big business' - an autocratic leader centrally controlling everything that affects the bottom line, answerable to nobody but the Board (Impeachment) and less directly at the annual stockholders meeting (Elections), able to hire and fire at will.

It appeals to people who are like himself because it means a bunch of semi-autonomous Federal regulators can't go off in a bunch of different directions on them, which is the one good thing about it. They don't see where else this is going to go, particularly if that way of doing business gets institutionalized and either Mittems turns out to be not what they thought, or his successor is a DemoSocialist.

This might be funny if it weren't so pathetic. The truth is that Biden is an idiot and a joke to the entire world save one group of people; American socialist, DIMokRAT, liberals.

I think Michele Bachmann might have had a better chance if she was either a Senator or a Governor. Members of the House rarely move on to the Presidency.

Having said that, Michele Bachmann really was the most consistent conservative in the field. I hope someday she decides to run for President again.

Also, I really think that Rick Perry should consider dropping out and endorsing Rick Santorum. Conservatives need to unite around one candidate. As long as there are several conservatives in the race, the conservative vote will remain split, Flip Romney will be the GOP nominee, and the current disgrace in the White House will get another 4 more years.

Reagan was a real conservative. He won TWO landslide victories. We need a real conservative to win this time, as well, because "moderate" Republicans never win. Flip Romney is NOT a conservative.

I wish all the best for Michele Bachmann.

She could improve her chances with a stint as Veep. She may have already cut a deal. I'll watch for her endorsement.
