    Is it panic time yet?


    http://www.cnn.com/2011/11/23/politics/secret-romney-meeting/index.html


    "Many social conservatives and other religious leaders in the state have openly labeled the former Massachusetts governor as a "flip-flopper," a criticism the campaign frequently beats back, while others have seen Romney's Mormon faith as an issue. And many of them have openly hoped for someone to emerge as a viable alternative to the former Massachusetts governor."

    i dunno why so many GOP/TEAbaggers are so dead set against Romeny; he's their best chance (heck, perhaps their ONLY chance!) of recapturing the Presidency.

    They are against Mitt Romney because he is a Mormon and also because he is not a narrow minded, bible thumping screwball like both Rick Perry and Michelle Bachmann.

    +1

    Also why Newt Gingrich is surging, another right-wing screwball.

    Yup. The majority of the Republican base are lunatic Christian fundamentalists who will not countenance a Mormon.

    None, but NONE of the GOP candidates this time round are serious candidates.

    It's stunning that republicans accept this crap that is offered to them.

    None of these Republican candidates are going to beat Obama, and Repubs don't even know who they want themselves (first Romney, then Bachmann, then Perry, then Cain, now Gingrich?). I think Romney will eventually get the nomination because the saner moderate portion of their party will prevail. Pretty sure there will never be a Bush-like Christian fundie in the White House again. Obama won't win as big as he won in 2008 but he's not nearly as unpopular as the media would have you believe and he's not going to lose to one of these clowns.

    ^^^^^ This ^^^^ Could he actually be "The Silent Front-Runner". Things can, and generally DO change once the actual voting in primaries begin. A surprise could be in store, and that surprise may be Huntsman. If it doesn't happen in New Hampshire though, it isn't likely to happen anywhere

    No, actually what is stunning is people like yourself without a clue who actually call some of the Republicans the "crap that is offered to them". They may not be YOUR cup of tea, but there are some extremely bright, able, knowledgable, and experienced candidates in the mix -- Romney, Huntsman, and Gingrich among them -- all with a vast amount of Government & business experience that can, and likely will, give President Obama a run for his money. It remains to be seen how this will all turn out, but I would caution anyone getting too confident or smug on either side, because this election clearly could go any way.

    The only way the GOP is ever going to mount a serious challenge to Obama is to permanently rid itself of all those narrow minded, bible thumping screwballs like that wacko James Dobson founder of Focus on the Family along with that brainless bitch from Minnesota, Michelle Bachmann and that brain dead retard from Texas, Rick Perry. Otherwise, the GOP doesn't stand a fighting chance of regaining the White House in 2012.

    That's right. The latest survey shows that 87.46% of the Republican base are "lunatic Christian fundamentalists who will not countenance a Mormon."


    Republicans are trying to bury Romney because they know their base will not support him. Even Faux News is throwing him under the bus. icon_lol.gif

    You don't know what you are talking about. If Romney is the nominee...which is highly likely....you can bet your bottom dollar ( no pun intended -- lol ) that the base WILL be supporting Romney.

    There are two camps against Romney.

    The "Not Romney" camp which is gunning for the more conservative voting bloc that alludes Romney.

    The second camp is Obama's campaign team which (most likely by their advertising action) predicts Romney having the best chance of defeating Obama.

    I have a sense that 2012 is going to be a mirror image of 2004: back then, the real contenders for the Democratic nomination sat the election out, and the only candidates that came forward were either hardliners (like Howard Dean), inexperienced (Clark), or milquetoast (Edwards). I found the duo Kerry/Edwards extremely uninspiring.

    This time around, it seems like the real contenders on the Republican side (like Chris Christie) have decided to sit it out, leaving the field to candidates that seem to be unable to get the party base behind them. Running against an incumbent president with a proven ability to raise tons of money (both in 2004 and 2012) is bound to be really hard, anyway.

    Good luck to whoever is elected. I just don't see the Republican base getting behind any of the current candidates the same way they did with Bush Jr.
