I thought this was interesting, but I don't understand it. McCain was a hero and a "maverick" who worked a lot across the aisle. Does this mean that voters like Romney better, or does it mean that they like Obama less now than they did in 2008? Personally, I thought McCain was a better candidate than Romney, but apparently, I'm outnumbered. lol
P.S. Maybe they like Ryan better than Palin?
I think you are right about Palin being the thorn in McCains side. I talked with a lot of women who were hurt and offended by the Palin "trick" McCain tried to pull on the electorate. I also think that McCains self admitted weakness on how to deal with the reccession was a big stumbling block for him.
I thought at first Palin would swing the election. Then the media attacks on her came in like scud missiles, and I thought many were unfair and I still do.
Butttt I think she is a ditz in reality now that I've had to listen to her blabber on about her stance, I don't like her that much these days as a possible anything in regards to helping a president post election short of holding the second key to a missile silo targeting Iran, I think she would be a cheer leader for taking them out prior to them taking out the multitude of targets as they finish the nukes they are building right now with obamas approval, my opinion, supported only by his willingness to attack America from with in, but not over looking the lack of Congressional opposition.
Many people like me were only voting because of Sarah....just as I am so glad they got Paul Ryan to add some worth to Romney. These things get decided in both parties long before the primaries are really in full swing and it is sickening.
I'm not sure exactly what you mean but if it is something like "from the beginning they new they would put Romney and Ryan together on a ticket under the GOP to appose Obama then I get the point that it's sick the way Americans are played like string-less guitars, then I have to agree with you all the way and wonder why America has yet to catch on to this game that is played in all aspects of government, I call much of them "False Flag" operations to push the vote or approval to where people think they thought of it themselves.
I think unfortunately there were main players.....and NO I Don't mean the flipping Koch brothers....who pushed him above all others. Not sure why they want to front a talking head but whatever....
I was for Santorum but you can't have a real Conservative front the ticket anymore so......
Politics, go figure. The reasoning in popularity is often fickle.
I don't think Romney is that much better. I think he made a smart move getting Paul Ryan. Smarter than Sarah Palin who was McCain's only hope.
Add that to the fact there are a lot of disgruntled folks who voted for Barack four years ago who will not be doing so this time around.
Why do I keep thinking that the Republicans lost the election last time around, on purpose. In the debates, McCain appeared to be kind of a nut, all snarling, with lots of gnashing of the teeth. Maybe they told him to act like that (because he was "old" to look tough). Then, in his concession speech, McCain came off as intelligent, warm, and a real sensible guy. It confused me. I felt like I was watching a different person.
Hiya Dolores, you keep thinking that because that's pretty much what they did, right before our eyes and we were not supposed to be smart enough to notice.
Is it the entitlement mentalities that makes folks want to reelect Obama, or the hatred for anything Republican.
Your response makes me believe you are one of the folks who feels that Democrats are absolutely good and Republicans are absolutely evil.
Nope, I just cannot for the life of me understand why folks choose to like Mr. Obama.
After 4 years of Obama, I hope for change.
OK....my mistaken impression. We hope for it but I am not certain we will get it.
I think you captured it in a word "Pain" the pain of being lied to? or just being fooled? I read his two books and just before the election his 3rd. I voted for anyone but obama, because the truth was there for the finding and when I read the "Dreams of my Father" I found much reason to vote no.
Hey you weren't supposed to be influenced by his own words you know......
Obama's book Dreams of my Father should be required reading for every american.
How much of it is fact or fiction is not the question, the content speaks to the mans views period.

What is this thing with Palin being so shielded from the press? Evidently, they don't want her asked about the investigation into "alleged" wrongdoing in the troopergate scandal. I'm thinking maybe...

From several exchanges, I learned why some people are voting for Romney. It is because Romney will launch a war against Iran. Generally, it is said that Muslims will attack the U.S. again. And that Iran will use nukes,...
