    All of them are nonstarters except Perry and Romney, and no one is too excited about either of them. I think Perry will take all the heat for a while til he's dead, and Romney will get the bid, and it will be a Clinton-Dole style massacre. Obama might as well put in for that 2 year internet-and-phone contract, he's not going anywhere.

    Unless Chris Christie or Jeb Bush enter the race, I am thinking it will be Romney.

    The homophobic Christian right/Tea Party supports Rick Perry. He has been winning all Republican polls since August. Unless Rick Perry accidentally posts a pic of his penis on Twitter, I can't see Mitt Romney the Mormon flip flopper from liberal Massachusetts edging out support against Perry among the party's insane ultra-right-wing base.

    Hard to say this far out from the election,but probably Romney....just.He`s the one to give Obama the 'greatest' challenge.
    Totally agree with oozyrat,it`s looking like 1996.

    If they want any kind of real chance, they'll be smart enough to pick Romney. However, Romney is handing over to Obama a re-election in hand with a kiss on the cheek by pandering to the far right.

    Recently he tried to cater himself to the Tea Party, though it's apparent they called his bluff. If he tries even harder during the primaries to be associated with them, he will just given President Obama plenty of ammunition for the general election.

    I hope the Black dude runs against Obama in the end. That'd be a cool match to watch.

    Anyway, where's the part where they talk about the gays? This video is almost 2 damn hours long.

    Would you vote for him if he did?

    Now when on earth don't they do this - run to the right or the left for the primaries and center themselves for the general?

    I'm hoping for the most radically extreme candidate who is off-putting to Moderate America.

    He's black though, and republican. He will never win the primary (even though he seems to be winning all the the debates :shockicon_smile.gif

    But it would be a crushing loss because he wouldn't get a single black vote, and there would be a lot of republicans who wouldn't vote for him either. So I kinda hope he does win because it would make for an easy obama win in 2012.

    96.22% it will be Mitt Romney.

    He has the money and the support from the large donator/Big Money base to buy up the necessary ad time to paint Perry as a secessionist looney if he wants to play dirty ball, and will begin to distance himself from the "hate the gays and abortionists" e-penis envy contest that Bachmann, Santorum, and Perry have going on just in time to steer back to centre to reassure the fickle Independents.

    Plus by all accounts he has party seniority much as the useless McCrankyPants from AZ had to edge out Romney and other primary contenders in 2008.

    Short of Ron Paul getting an extremely unlikely swell in the polls - the election is basically Obama's to toss away.

    Uh... that seems to be a bit overstated. Not to mention quite a racist statement.


    Not every statement that concerns race is "racist." icon_rolleyes.gif

    It's not so much a "racist" comment, SB, as it is just a naive comment from someone who is too young to know better.

    Saying that "not a single black vote" would go Republican rather blatantly implies that African Americans are somehow "different" from the rest of the citizenry. The fact is, some people will vote Democrat, some will vote Republican and "the blacks" are no exception to this.


    That doesn't make it racist.

    The blacks that have sense will vote for obama because he is the candidate who best best serves their interests as a demographic.,

    the ones with slightly less sense will simply vote for the one who doesn't have the most ridiculous tax plan ever conceived.

    The ones who don't really care will vote for the candidate of elevation (basically the candidate that won't make them look stupid.)

    Reagan was (at one time) a big-government Truman Democrat.

    Was Perry a democrat/Dixiecrat at some point in his career?

    Probably Romney, he's the only one that could come close to passing the grade.
