    Of course he can. Anything is possible. I suspect, if elected, he may even be a really good President.

    Most definitely. But unfortunately with the incumbent, the bar has been set very low regarding experience, competence, leadership, and character.

    Agreed. He's most certainly going to be our nominee so primary battle over and let's get behind Romney and make it happen.

    Seems like the race is going to be around 50/50 with a slight edge to Obama (incumbent president) unless the economy takes a nose-dive. In which case, Romney could have a pivotal advantage depending on the timing.

    That is probably a fair assessment today despite some of the wishful thinking comments to the contrary. I think in the weeks going forward, all else equal, the advantage will swing towards Romney. The polls today reflect an incumbent who has had a free ride while the Republicans have engaged in the primaries. Those circumstances are over.

    AYYYYYYE LORDY So Cal !!! we know your problem with that 'outsider' who 'isn't like us', your just like most of the far righties who just want that 'BLACK MAN' out of your ' WHITE HOUSE ' !!


    NO !!! I cannot imagine the stiff and publicly uncomfortable bouncing ball Romney in the white house, the poor guy would be bouncing from one lobby to another unable to take a clear stand and giving the media and the international community a hell of a lot to talk about. Obama is bad enough at caving to lobbies, the last thing we need is a known 'bouncer' like Romney.

    Why is it that the only people I ever see using offensive terms like "Get that black man out of The White House" are angry liberals?

    So we will revisit this comment in "the weeks going forward" and then have a discussion about "wishful thinking."

    The left is not just about ideology. It has attracted for years those attracted to angry protests. They are attracted as much to the tactics as they are to the ideology. You can see their anger in how they react to current events that on the surface are not about liberalism. Angry people, angry words.

    Bookmark all you want. I hate to say "always" because it is possible exceptions might exist, but my style is to say things such as "I think...." or "I predict...." versus the certain statements of fact by others who cannot know the future for certain, but bloviate freely. You fall into the latter category, having stated with certainty that Romney will never be President. If that happens or looks like it will likely happen, your posts will certainly become even more shrill and unhinged then they already are, assuming you remain on the site.

    More of a virulent anger. Goes back to the 60s. Flag burnings, torching of a bank, campus unrest, mixed in with drugs - the whole 9 yards. Compare that with the mostly peaceful and reflective atmosphere of the tea party groups. Sure a few excessive signs, but more on the fringe.

    Huffington Post

    "A road sign on a Michigan freeway was hacked early Monday morning and its message changed to "Trayvon A N---r."

    According to Rob Morosi, a spokesman for the state's department of transportation, someone had broken the lock on the sign's controls and changed the message warning of construction to the message with the slur."


    "Trayvon A N---r" - random angry white guy

    I'll say it again: Mitt Romneycare will never be President of the United States.

    Since the reverse is not going to happen, nor looks likely to happen, you need not worry about my posts becoming more "shrill" and "unhinged."

    Disclaimer: Of course, I don't take much account into right-wingers and their tiresome bleating about shrillness, since I know from experience that for them "shrill" just really means "you've said something that hits too close to home and I don't like it so I'm not going to address the substance of what you said I'm just going to label it in pejorative terms since my own arguments are completely specious, as usual."

    A history lesson:

    Truman was a Democrat who believed in universal health care and who was hated by frothing-at-the-mouth right wingers who abhored Truman's support for civil rights and who thought, at the time, that all Democrats were crypto-communists. Truman won by running against an unpopular Congress and claiming Republicans wanted to do away with the safety class for the poor and middle class.

    Dewey was a cautious, business-minded "moderate" establishment Republican, supported by the financial and industrial communists, who defeated an conservative insurgency led by Robert Taft to become the GOP's uninspiring nominee.

    You might wanna look to another election for inspiration. Just sayin'.
