    Conservatives love to tout Abraham Lincoln as one of history's most celebrated Republicans -- especially on Feb. 12, his birthday. But the modern GOP has nothing to do with the party of Lincoln, and the 16th president would probably be horrified by the likes of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Donald Trump.

    Good pointsicon_exclaim.gif Lincoln would also be thoroughly disgusted at the destruction of the GOP by the narrow minded bible thumping screwballs. He would most likely be angered by the fact that a foreigner by the name of Ted Cruz is being allowed to run for President. That in itself a major abomination. I like Donald Trump but lately he has been pandering to the right wing extremists which has me very worried. I prefer Ohio Governor John Kasich for republican nominee but he is too boring and too fixated on tackling the country's economic problems to pass the idiotic litmus tests of the narrow minded bible thumping screwballs. He would make a great President but unfortunately it isn't happening.

    I think Kasich would be a reasonable compromise. I wouldn't write him off just yet either. He's probably the last of the GOP "moderates" (which is to say, not a religious nut or a complete bigot) who is still in with a real chance of getting the nomination, though he might take a hammering in SC.
