That's how pathetic this Republican field is.
Their best bet is Ron Paul and yet he gets shit on. The guy wants to cut military spending, bring our troops home while fixing our deficit and they want to put some jerk-off who wants to go to war with Iran on the pedestal?

I guess Ron Paul doesn't have the "look" to be nominated or elected President. They say people vote for the people they can align themselves with, which telling of how many idiots America really has. Because many are willing to vote for Bachmann and Palin.

Funny if your health ins was like Medicare everyone would be bitching up and down. How many of you have to currently buy additional health ins. to cover all the shit your health ins does not cover? I'm guessing none but no one has a problem paying for medicare all their life then when they need need the ins it covers so little they need to spend $500 a month for additional coverage. Thats f*&^ing pathetic if you ask me.

Why does that need to be done Obama said he was going to do all of those things. Oh, he lied. Again. Please show who is running for office that wants to go to war with Iran because I have no clue who you are talking about.

Not one candidate can or will bring the troops home any faster than the current timetable. End of the year for the remaining Iraq troops and a draw down in Afghanistan through next year.

Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

Ron Paul’s new ad. He’s burning some bridges but he obviously has the right to be pissed off and so do his supporters. He got kicked out of debates and straw polls in 2008 because he doesn’t fit the status quo and was attracting too much attention, and things are on pace for the same to happen this go around. Honestly it says a lot about our media and the republican party to treat him and his supporters the way they do.

Rolling out with this ad says a lot to me. Supposedly the Republicans cant win the presidency with him so they just completely ignore him. But I would say they have better odds of winning with him then trying to win if forced to go against him if he jumps on a third party ticket. Im wondering if hes trying to set the tone that hes not willing to sit back and be a nice guy this time around like he did in 2008. At his age I don’t think hes going to accomplish much more in his political career and he may be best to go out making a strong statement; like taking the presidency away from Bachmann, Romney, Perry or whoever else gets the nomination by running on a third party ticket. I think the republicans have to walk a thin line and try to keep one of the most principled of politicians happy.

As of right now I think Ron Paul running (one way or another) is sadens best chance to win a 100 dollars, and of course use it to take a republican friend out to dinner……

Searched "Ron Paul earmarks" and found this. He actually has damn good reasoning

Ron Paul Slams Cavuto on Earmarks

it is. and because it directly effects your bottom line, you scream every chance you get. but when Obama try to fix this, you hated it, because it wasnt your answer to the problem. sorry to say, but health care is way in the back of the list, when it comes to this countries problems.

It's a contrive and insufficient explanation. It would be preferable if he simply didn't add any earmarks or add them and vote for the bill.

I always HEART when someone misuses the term 'theory' like it's interchangeable with 'wild guess'.

Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

I love the quote about his dad J
Technically, Perry’s first job as an adult was selling encyclopedias and bibles door-to-door over the summer of the early 70s, while still studying in A&M. He would recount later, “There is nothing that tests your commitment to a goal like getting a few doors closed in your face”.

Perry enlisted with the United States Air Force after graduating in 1972, rising to the rank of Captain in a five-year career. During his time with the Air Force, he flew the
military
transport aircraft C-130 to far-flung corners of the world, including the hotspots of Central America, North Africa and Europe.

Soon after leaving the Air Force, Perry was accepted to join Southwest Airlines’ pilot-training program. However, he changed his mind and
returnedhome to work in the farm following a conversation with his father.

“Dad still thought I was there to do chores. I reminded him that I had just finished commanding a multimillion-dollar piece of government equipment and a number of grown men. He reminded me that the chores still needed tending to."

The same truth holds true for Bachman and Perry.

They are FAR FAR FAR to right of center. And Bachman is just a straight up lunatic. So that also hurts her chances.
Not everyone lives in Los Aangeles. People on this site also said the Rep. right was done after Obama was elected and we saw what happened in the last elections.
