    Third time's a charm, or no one else to blame?

    Where the hell have you been? Took you an entire minute to get here. What's wrong with you?

    Biden ran four times so I see no problem. And I'd certainly support Romney much more than last time after what I've seen over the last five years. He's in a great health and a very young 67 so hell yeah!

    Oh please run again, Mitt. Here, I'll do the math for you: You managed to insult only 47% of the population this time around, and you only give a damn about 1%, that leaves, let's see, 52% of the population you can still find away to haughtily dismiss. I look forward to seeing it!

    I'd take Romney or Bush. Either would be perfectly fine with me. If Christie burns out we have plenty of backup.

    Giggles! You are right as he can spend his 170 millions. But it takes Billions to run a campaign.


    More "giggles"? You do anything but giggle?

    If he couldn't win in 2012, he can't win any other year. Retreads reek of desperation, next thing you know Republicans will be trying to bring out Dole or Bush I.

    John Ellis Bush would be just fine.

    Biden ran four times. Reagan in 76 and 80. RMN in 60 and 68. Not unheard of and Romney got close last time. In fact Intrade had him up slighty before Sandy.

    You typically have long-fuse!


    How do you know anything about the size of my 'fuse'? I've never ever posted those kind of pics on RJ.

    Seven minutes this time. Unacceptable Giggles. Pay attention to breaking news.

    If Mitt got in I sure would Giggle, because so many of the haters here at RJ would be running around like chooks with their heads cut off. How the liberal hens would be so entertaining going into flockout.. Or gerbils running off a cliff. But then you may see America advance once again, and not look like a failing Republic as it does now.

    Which only shows that investors and traders have a conservative bias. Nate Silver of the terrifying accuracy never had Romney up, not once.

    "Aristoshark said

    RCP is a right-leaning site. Nate Silver, who has a 98% or better track record, is the one I trust. Neither he nor intrade had Romney ahead ever. And in fact not even all that close."


    So I got you halfway there?

    He's better than anything the GOP is currently offering. Why not?

    woodsmen saidI want the GOP to put a serious candidate that can win the election so that we can see which party has the mettle. Seriously!


    If they can come up with a candidate who is:

    • NOT a homophobe
    • NOT a racist
    • NOT a moron
    • NOT certifiably insane
    • NOT a warmonger

    ....then maybe.......just maybe.....I might vote for them. icon_eek.gif

    I weigh all the issues carefully.
    I examine the character of each candidate.
    I look at their records, their histories, their associations.
    And then I vote for the Democrat.

    Who knows maybe they'll find the billing records.
