We didn’t want McCain/Palin. If Romney was/is on the ticket for ’08/’12 we would have/will vote for him hands down. I thought we both fit into some small minority that feel this way. If this Rasmussen poll is correct, we’re not alone. I thought Romney had a real chance at becoming elected because of his impeccable resume, and was dissappointed when he didn’t.
The good news for me was that Hillary and McCain didn’t win as well. So instead of a major war, we get a major recession. I’ll take a recession over war any day. Thank you, Obama.

He has an impeccable character, is known for his ability on economic issues and for turning companies profitable (no one disputes that Massachusetts was in the red and Romney pulled it into the black during his administration) and he will put our country first. The ones primarily responsible for Romney not getting the Republican nomination were the Evangelicals that were afraid everyone would jump on the bandwagon to become Mormon if he was elected. So, they helped elect a guy who has never run even a candy stand before, and with radical Muslim leanings. Mormonism must have something going for it to cause fear like that. Did everyone become Catholic when John F. Kennedy was elected? Come on, let’s get our heads on straight. Romney would make a great president!

He actually is intelligent and can speak well (without a teleprompter) and truly does know how to run things and turn enterprises around.

Obama is rapidly proving to be an empty suit. He is running America as if he has a list of issues to resolve and he is trying to quickly put a check-mark in as many boxes as possible to boldly proclaim “mission accomplished” but he could care less about whether his solutions work or how much they cost. They are all hastily prepared with little analysis and review and come with a cost that will bankrupt the United States of America.

I suspect that by 2012, America will heartily support Romney because after three and a half more years of haphazard leadership from the Oval Office, we will desperately need the skills of the guy called a ‘turn-around artist’.

Well, Palin can deliver a speech from a teleprompter as well as, if not better, than Obama any day.

During that time he has been working very hard to reinvigorate America in so many different ways. The economy for starters: getting the country back on track after the debilitating recession and loss of confidence in the banks and the financial sector. Trying to change course after an eight year lack-lustre leadership by George Bush is by no means easy. But Obama is pragmatic. He realises that the American electorate will only be convinced by deeds and not merely by words. By extolling Americans to follow his plans, President Obama will have to be pragmatic to the core with no wasteful spending!

It’s a Rasmussen poll. They always lean right. Still, even with that on the table, the results are indeed shocking.
2. Will the Republican party even exist or have relevance in 2012? At the rate at which they’ve been self-destructing, without a significant turnaround, they won’t matter.
3. Will Palin even run? And if she does, will she run as a Republican or a third-party candidate? If she does run as a third-party candidate, that actually makes the three-way question a bit more interesting.

As an admitted Obama supporter, I would much rather see Palin in a one-on-one with Obama than Romney. Romney’s a sharp tack who could actually pose an intellectual challenge to the incumbent. Palin’s questionable decision-making and frigteningly low intellect make her a non-factor in any real contest.
