President, no. Nominee, maybe.

Yes, I too remember that Carter's people wanted to run against Reagan. Newt is no Reagan, except for the multiple marriages I suppose.

I'm voting for the dirtbike rider!

I figure the only reason he did that was because he can't get it up any more so it won't be a problem. I can't even look at his wife without thinking about her giving him a bj in the parking lot outside the capital while he was married to wife number two.

I want him to force Mitt further to the right to be the conservative candidate that will get the conservative, republican and moderate vote.

LOL!!! You're going to have to provide your definition of fun in order for me to accurately respond to that question.

Well, the way it I see it unless Hillary decides to challenge Obama we are going to elect a sack of sh!t to the White House so we may as well pick the one who will generate the most entertaining news stories. Since Cain dropped out that would be Newt.

Apparently Michael Savage is offering him a million dollars to drop out. He was calling him the marshmellow man the other day. Savage is crazy, but I enjoy him when he talks about his Brooklyn roots, or when he calls guys like Gingrich the Stay Puft Marshmellow Man.

a buddy of mine had a bumper sticker back in the mid-90's that said: 'Neuter Gingrich'

I got a chuckle out of that.


The first time I saw my ex-wife's vehicle (I had met her only once previously), she had two of those bumper stickers on it!

We just didn't discuss politics, it was a guaranteed argument. (Think: "Do these pants make my ass look big?")

We had ten years together, most of it good, and our individual political leanings had nothing to do with the split. Considering how much I hate Al Gore, that was quite an accomplishment for the both of us!

What's a million bucks to a "candidate" who's made far, far more than that engaging in lobbying and access pedaling since he left the House in the late 90's? Seriously, Gingrich will make far more than an additional million bucks by continuing to run for the nomination. Savage knows this and thus hasn't any fear of losing the million out of his own pocket. It's really a sad commentary of how this prolonged Republican nomination process is really just a money making scheme for many of the supposed candidates.

From a poly sci point of view, I think a real interesting question here is in regards to all the GOP debates. Did they help? Hurt? Have good effects or bad?

I've had it with them, I was never a fan...to your question...I think they hurt certain candidates who have stumbled and mumbled their way out of consideration.
I think at is point most folks who are not going to vote for the Potus prolly have their minds made up and or will vote for anyone except the current resident of 1600.

Simple as it sounds, that's very astute, really. A good political axiom would be "Don't expose your weaknesses by exposing your weaknesses."

I still can't believe (I am completely serious) Sarah Palin dropped out. She would have rocked the populist wave.

I'm glad she dropped out...I think the negatives(real or trumped up) would have made her run painful....not that I'm happy with Mitt leading the pack.

My personal point of view is that having 9 candidates run for the office for more than two years without a single vote being cast is a foolish way to pick a nominee. I don't know how to change it though.

Yes, but she's got the rockstar quality that no one else in the GOP has...the GOP lost to a rockstar the last election, remember?

As far as candidates go it helped some and hurt some. Helped Mitt, Newt, and even Bachman who doesn't have a chance but came across well in the debates. Hurt Perry and Cain. No effect whatsoever for Huntsman, Paul, Santorum, who were generally ignored by the press.

As far as the public goes, except the political junkies I think the debates went unnoticed by most, so no real effect.

Or as they say in the old country, "stop showing your ass!!"


I donít think we learn anything of great detail in the debates, so itís more sound bites and generalities. Perhaps I am wrong, and this is an assumption on my part, but I have a feeling that most voters just take these clips and then make their decisions based on those little clips, instead of actually taking the time to dig deeper into the candidates and their records.

From a political perspective, I think it does nothing but help the President. He must be laughing his ass off watching and listening to them. I am obviously a right leaning person (all right, fanatical nutjob, if you must) and I just cringe when I see all of these guys on tv. I donít think half of them are serious (good call on the Herminator, by the way). I guess, in that sense, the debates do a good job of weeding out the candidates that are flash in the pans, for lack of a better term.

I still believe the President will be reelected. I donít think any president has been elected with such dismal economic conditions working against them, but the current field of Republicans come off as total clowns. Mitt is making $10k bets with Perry, who looks like he is not even sure he knows his own name, let alone what agencies he would cut.

The Republicans need to find that candidate known as "generic" who keeps beating the POTUS in polls. Every time I hear that I can't help but think of the Republicans finding some gangster rapper named "Generic" who will challenge the President.

Noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!! I don't want to see either Newt or Mitt as our President. They have flipped on their views on almost every issue there is. Neither one of them has any core. Neither of them really stand for anything. They change like the wind depending on who they are talking to and what those particular people want to hear. They are doing the same exact thing McCain had to do in order to get nominated. They compromise their positions and flip to get nominated and in the process expose themselves as phonies who are afraid to stand up for what they believe.

Of course that is the only way to get nominated on the right. If you differ from them in any way on any issue you are out and have no chance at nomination. That is why the only decent candidate they have IMO, John Huntsman has been ignored and pushed to the side. He is the most common sense candidate they have but since he doesn't agree with the far right on every issue he gets completely ignored. Even in the debates he has been included in he gets one or two questions about fringe issues while the four or five far right candidates get all of the important questions and give the same lame far right wing talking point answers that the far right wing want to hear.

As an Independent this is the year that the GOP might have been able to grab my vote but not a friggin' chance with anyone like Gingrich or Romney running. I will never vote for anyone as phony as those two flip floppers. I just can't vote for someone who I don't know what they stand for or for candidates who I think stand for nothing. I would rather take my chances with another Obama term.
