    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: 325,000 private sector jobs added in December : I know Skeet.  The Left is looking for anything that will make this nit-wit president look good.  I don`t blame them, just wish there was some honesty behind it.  Posting (pre-maturely) that there were 325,000 jobs only to find out there was nothing of the sort, should require a retraction or a mea culpa.  Instead heels are dug in and things are made up as they all try to defend each other`s BS. Imagine how this board will light up on Wed, Nov,7th when they wake to find Romney has won handily, Reps have gained in the House, and won a majority in the Senate. Ought to be some fun..........

    Just one point. The GOP has not picked its nominee. Romney "won" Iowa by a whole eight votes. 

    He cannot seem to break the 25% mark overall. The very right wing of the party who did not want him still do not want him. There have been rumors that meetings are taking place by people on the very right of the GOP to decide on one candidate to get behind. And no I do not have a source. Just a lot of rumors.

    If they are smart and they want the GOP candidate to represent what they want that is exactly what they will do. Michelle has already stepped aside. Her supporters are not likely to break toward Romney.

    Maybe two points. I have not seen any analyst or source, liberal, conservative or right down the middle who has expressed the opinion that Romney vs. Obama would be an easy win for either man.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: 325,000 private sector jobs added in December : Great post IMO..........a lucid, honest, articulate, (and probably correct) statement. However, I hope you are wrong.  IMO, Romney may be the only candidate that could beat Obama.  I would like to think that if Romney wins SC (assuming the polls are correct and NH is a cake-walk), he becomes the nominee and the right rallies around him.  I agree that there are many on the Right that cannot. I am not one.  I would much rather see a moderate candidate and do not support the extreme Right guys.

    Thank you very much. I do believe Romney will win N.H. I also believe Romney is the only GOP candidate who can defeat Obama. If it is Obama vs Romney IMO I believe it will be very close. 

    If a third party candidate emerges that of course could change the equation. There is group that has qualified for all 50 states for the general. Of course it would very much depend on who that third party candidate is, should that come to be.

    romney has alot of baggage that he is carrying but the biggest one is that he is a businessman  who didn't create a single job. What he created was a profit for Bains Capital investors and unemployment checks for a once hard working workforce that they destroyed.

    I hope he wraps up the nomination Tuesday because he will be hit on Wednesday with the message of being job destroyer 24/7 until 11/7/12. The ads will be a ugly and painful reminder to the working class on whose policies took their dreams away and who benefited from those policies.

    Sister,

    If you go to the above link, Jonathan Alter, a political writer I follow, makes a good case that Rick Santorum could actually win the GOP nomination.

    I do not believe Romney will wrap it up in New Hampshire. I believe Santorum will exceed expectations. I also believe Jon Huntsman will exceed expectations, and every one of those votes will come from would be Romney voters.

    So before the Democrats can begin wrapping Bain around Romney's neck, I believe more time will have to pass. I also believe that if this weekend the very right wing of the GOP decide to back Santorum, we may very well have a different GOP nominee.

I think we may be coming into a time when no politician is safe, ever.  Where D and R mean nothing.  Where elected officials will have 4 years (6 Senator, 2 Congressman) to perform or their out..........and........you know what?.....that may be a good thing.

    I think your second point is very incisive. First, Independents will decide this election. The days of strict adherence to one party or the other are behind us.

    Second, voters have much less patience with their elected officials. They look at where they are now and where they were when the official was elected. If they are no better, or even worse, the overall attitude seems to be anti-incumbent. So, let us put someone else in. They probably will not do worse and there is a chance they will do better.

    Numbers are just Obama generated B.S. designed to try and improve his dismal record as President.  Like I said, you all can drink the Kool Aid if you wish but all
    I want is November 2012 so that I can vote against this man.

    jmel in my heart of hearts I know that neither party are any good and the differences between them really ain't much. But what is different about them is why I support the democrats.
     
    I myself don't mind paying taxes that support a government that will provide me decent public safety, a decent education for the young "nit wits" that someday will be our leaders, to help the needy and poor, I want a bigger investment in a alternative energy program, I don't want  wall st to get their greedy hands on social security, I want government to step in when an industry gets too big,  I want the healthcare cartel broken up. I want government to juice the economy when needed.

    When it comes to the military I think our leaders shouldbe very selective when it comes to spilling the blood of our young people. When it comes to funding the military "CUT IT"!  How much does it cost to scare these third worlder into behaving anyway ? We have enough firepower to give any industrial nation a moment of pause before they want to step on our toes. I myself was a coldhearted and determine weapon of mass destruction not for our government but for the guys that were in my rifle squad, I was a "Jar Head", I have memories from that time in my life that were the best of times and the very worst of times. They are as vivid right now as if I was still living them but I learn to live with them because nothing that I can do now will change the outcome.

    But my two biggest concerns I have with the running of our government is money in politics and the court system. Both of those concerns are tilted toward the rich and powerful. In my humbled opinion the democrats are fairer. I have more of a voice with them then I do with the gop. I don't want to think that I have no say in how my country is run. That is why I support the democratic party.

    So anyway forgive my rant I going to go for a walk outside to celebrate global warming.

There are some on both sides that "get it".  As much as I think there should be term limits, and none should have the life-long legacy,..........some could do well for America if they continue to be supported by their respective states and base.  IMO, we should be informed and carefully weigh every vote we place. Right, Left, Independent,......whatever........try and cast your vote because you care. Not because of the last TV commercial you saw.

    You are correct of course. But the posters in the forums do not mirror the general population. Not even close. Esp. in being informed.

    At a recent birthday party, the talk turned toward politics. My niece, who is of age and a mother, asked who Barney Frank and John Boener was. 

    I was stunned and disappointed. She is neither unintelligent nor uneducated. But I fear that she mirrors the general population far more than the posters in the forums.

    I honestly do not care what your politics are. I do care that you are truly informed before you vote. My niece has the right to vote. But honestly I do not believe she should vote. She has no idea of what or who she is voting for.

    Obama is the worst President in the history of the Republic.  Hell, he even makes Jimmy Carter look good!  Keep drinking the Kool Aid Kirk.  Ten more months.

    After all the posturing and BS subsides after Romney is nominated you will see his support soar backed by the millions who want "anybody but Obama.
    The general election will be a clear choice between big government socialism and American opportunity. It is then that we'lll find out if there are now more takers and public sector parasites or the 'givers" that pay for their abuses.

    Iit is crystal clear that this regime and and the Democrat machine are doing all in their power to make as many people both legal and illegal totally dependend on government thus ensuring the left wing stanglehold on America
    Nov 13 will be the either the beginning of the repairs of the damage done by the socio-communists or the end of America,... it's that simple

    Maybe I've been punked.  I don't remember where I got it, but I am going by the legend below the chart.  Is sister denying the veracity of the numbers?  Or just that the Koch brothers are somehow involved?
