• Sarah doesn't realize what people think of her. How could she, she is such a "me, me, me" person.
    And, to this day, I don't think she realizes it was her that sunk McCain.

  • Sarah ...She might want to rethink that after the HBO movie "Game Change" debuts Saturday night...She doesn't come out too flattering but they could only work with what they had..:-)

  • From what we read, Ms. Palin is thinking about entering the race. Great! Just think about how her being on the ticket helped John McCain.

    "Ya betcha" will fill the air ways..

  • Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum did all right in their primaries last night but I heard that Santorum would have to win 65-75 % of the delegates that are remaining to beat Romney...Joe the Plumber won his primary last night..And Dennis Kucinich (far left liberal) and Jean Schmidt (far right conservative) lost their primaries in Ohio.

    The New York Times/Wall Street Journal put out startling numbers yesterday.

    President Obama's has pretty much cemented the Hispanic vote and he beats Romney on the woman's vote by 18 points.

    Hispanic Vote: Obama..... 69% Romney 14%
    Obama 70% Santorum 14%
    Obama 72% Gingrich 14%

    23 states so far and Ron Paul remains winless.

  • itisi,

    There are so many things we must help pay for that says "loss of liberty and freedom" in some way or another.
    Do you really want to walk back everything that is not "choice"?

    Basically, what it all amounts to is what's needed to make the future easier for everyone and actually cheaper in the long run.

  • It's also not governments role to rig the game.

    The tab is already due. The bill has to be paid.

    Claiming "freedom and liberty" to be a deadbeat is a pretty hollow cry.

    March 6, 2012 at 8:24 a.m.

  • There is no way to be fair to all. There is nothing Free, because somehow some where someone has to pay the Tab, and it is not the Government place to mandate that someone else pay the Dang Tab, that is a loss of Liberty and Freedom.

  • What duh? John McCain is calling for airstrikes on President Assaasad's forces in Syria..Is McCain having a senior moment? He lost his opportunity to be Commander In Chief...Take that and add the" bomb Iran" rhetoric that three of the four GOP presidential candidates will likely give to the attendees of this year's AIPAC conference and I ask "Will they ever learn?"

  • I agree, I think Romney should run as a pragmatic moderate because he's not a fire breathing right winger...The other day he said that presidential candidates shouldn't be getting into questions about contraception within a relationship between a man and a women." That's a good answer and it fits his politics but moments later he said he was for Blunt/Rubio....Romney is a smart man, he knew that Rubio (VP candidate) was the co-sponsor of a bill that would have allowed employers to opt out the provision of providing female contraception...I believe he'll eventually get the nomination but he has beaten up for the great things he accomplished like reviving the Winter Olympics, success with Bain Capital and he did a pretty good job of working with the opposition...President Obama will capitalize because Romney is not leaving any room to move to the center because he already has a reputation for being a flip flopper...I guess he saw that Jon Huntsman was not making any grounds by running as a moderate...I don't blame the base of the GOP for not trusting Romney because they can see through someone who is pretending to be one of them. The flip flops are now being seen as lies and not changing positions because of unforeseen circumstances.

    As always the moderates will decide who will become president because both parties are entrenched. The GOP’s main goal is to get Obama out of office, so they will vote even if Romney is the nominee but the moderates are always turned off on the social issues.

  • We are a nation of laws, not men. Contrary to what some think, the GOP needs to back off the tea. It is going to give them a terrible hangover in 2013, (but not from celebrating).

    March 5, 2012 at 4:31 p.m.

  • And now you know why, in State after State, a majority of Republican primary and caucus voters are in the "anyone but Romney" camp.

    March 5, 2012 at 4:24 p.m.

  • I agree we are approaching the 47th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery march for voting rights, and the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

    Yes that was preceded by a war on drugs,Christmas,Christianity,poverty and whatnot...It is much easier to pull out the Gadsden flag or seek 2nd Amendment remedies than to discuss and try to find a solution(s) to our differences.

  • I was scarred early on by TV images of folks being firehosed, beaten, and police dogged and that standard, rightly or wrongly, is where my bar was set for civil rights. Seems to me that as groups are no longer shut out they tend to push back and there is a dynamic back and forth between the majority and the minority. Emerging technologies also seem to create dilemmas by presenting moral questions that simply didn't have an opprtunity to exist before. Even the Constitution has not been static and interpretations have shifted over time.

    The recent tendency in the political discourse (on both sides) that bugs me is how everything is a war. This is a war on religious freedom. That is a war on women's health. etc.

    Give me a break.
