Newtonian Fluids Running Down Our Legs

So I'm supposed to not like Romney because he's not a conservative firebrand. Okay, I can understand that as far as it goes, but Newt Gingrich instead? Aside from being no more or no less of a conservative firebrand than the RomneyBot 9000, he's kindof icky-scary to the mushy American middle that actually determines the presidency. We all know that, right?

Newt is a weapon in the holster of a Republican leader, not a leader himself.

As far as I'm concerned, the "make it as bad as possible so we get a Reagan" vote made their point and did enough damage to the country in 2006 and 2008 - do you really need to do it again in 2012? Do you really want another Obama term, because that's the "equal and opposite" reaction we're going to get if we really put this guy at the top of the ticket.

But seriously, with the lying, cheating and corrupt ways of the liberals and democrats and Obama and ACORN and all the other crooks in charge of the vote, don't you think that Barry will steal this election as well, just like he did in 2008? I don't think there is a chance in hell that Obama WON'T be re-elected, regardless of whether it's Newt or Mittens. Don't you agree?

Naomi Wolf said the same thing about Bush, except she also predicted a military coup. You sound about as shrill and hysterical as she did. If Obama wins its going to be because Romney sucks at campaigning.

Problem is that there's no Reagan to turn to.

Fools! You're missing the point! This is all part of the great RON PAUL's secret plan! Soon he will rise from where he lies sleeping in the polls and crush Obama like an insect!

Ia! Ia! Paul'a'tulu Cthan!

Flying Saucer Man. Dude you're (dead but) dreaming.

Wow, comments to wake up to...

Obama didn't steal anything, he beat a lackluster McCain fair & square.

As far as no Reagan to turn to, who cares? I do not understand why a bunch of supposedly fiercely-independent, liberty-loving GOPers (or GOP-toleraters) are constantly whining for a strong and charismatic leader to yap along after.

Elect a hundred Paul Ryans and Marco Rubios and John Whoevers to state and national congress and senate and it won't matter WHO'S president - anyone with a blue suit and red tie will do.

Wait, you're actually going to say that Obama won the election fair and square? REALLY? With all the vote tampering and fake ballots and duplicate registrations, you actually say and believe that election was won "legally"? wow. Sad. No more listening at this site....

Shrill and hysterical? I don't think so. You guys don't see reality here, apparently. Not even going to bother with this site anymore. Believe whatever makes you sleep well at night. This is why this country is headed to doom. Denial of fact of what the left is doing by breaking the laws and breaking the rules.

Oh drat. Hear that, Smasher? We lost "anonymous" a fan so devoted, he couldn't be bothered to cook up a cool fake name.

Anonymous, since you're probably checking to see if we respond and beg you to stay, let me be the first to warn you that the doorknob might leave a large bruise on your ass if you tarry in the entryway.

PS. Live in the now. McCain was a dud, he ran a shitty campaign. It wasn't even CLOSE. They didn't have to cheat.

Axe - I know. I'm crushed.

But seriously Anon., you are right and wrong at the same time. Was there electoral fraud? Sure - there always is. Was it mostly favoring the Dems? Sure - it mostly does. But was it significant in the Presidential race? No. As my partner-in-blogging says, we ran a crappy candidate who ran a crappy campaign. That's no one's fault but McCain's, and the folks that selected him in the primaries.

If we're still getting candidates like the top 3 we have things obviously haven't gotten bad enough yet. Romney is a white Obama, Gingrich is somebody's perverted uncle and Santorum is a religious right nutcase... and Paul thinks it's 1938.
