    Look at the truly weak Candidates so far, no one showing any capability or ideas, and I mean nothing of substance. Am I nuts or is this a contrived thing, are they all in this togeather so Obama stays. Are we already a one party sytem, hiden to look like 2 parties?

    Or am I being swept in to another conspiracy theory?
    I have never seen such sorry choices for the Executive Office?

      True about the choices, but the Repubs are not stacking the deck. Just wait till election time gets closer. There are going to be some nasty ads come out

      Your premise is false. Everyone of the republicans is capable of beating Obama as long as they make him run on his record. The republicans must make this about what Obama has done massive debt persistent high unemployment confused foreign policy crashing home values unconstitutional health care law out of control spending stagnant economy high.gas prices energy shortages rule by decree and on and on! There's no way any sensible logical unbiased thinking person can look at Obama's record and say yes I want 4 more years of this! !

        "Everyone" of the Republicans? I don't think Mitt Romney will be attacking ObamaCare too much, considering its similarities to RomneyCare (in fact, we might see Obama praising Romney's efforts just to undermine the Republican position on the issue). Donald Trump will have trouble attacking Obama on the policies that he promoted when he supported him in the 2008 election and when he was a registered Democrat from 2001 - 2009.

        Obama's "confused foreign policy" is more or less an extension of the same foreign policy the Republicans supported when Bush was in office. Will Team Obama play up the fact that Bin Laden was brought down on Barack's watch, after making a choice that John McCain said specifically he wouldn't make, and a choice that pundits like Bill O'Reilly said specifically Barack Obama wouldn't make? You Betcha.

          Romneycare is destroying MA and he's in a unique position of being the canary in the coal mine on that. Besides there's nothing preventing states from enacting universal health care for their citizens and Romney can make that case.

          Trump isn't really a republican in any case he isn't a conservative nor do I consider him a serious candidate he wont win the nomination but even if he did would republicans and independents rather pull the lever for Obama given his record? I think not!!

      My office coffee discussion turned to politics today. I mentioned the same thing. They are all conservatives and they looked at me like I was crazy! I see it just as you do. Not one of the current candidates looks viable!

    Yes but most of them don't know it. Obama will be re-elected.

    The party is so fractured, there doesn't seem to be a base from which to work.

    the only hope the have is to get David Duke back again..

    Only by attempting to polarize the voting public into two groups.. the Obama supporters, and the inbred neo-Nazis, can the Republicans have a hope in hell of winning

    I wonder of the US will ever look at using a proportional system to break out of the 2 party model?

        It worked pretty well for some other countries (Aus. NZ) and the UK is also considering it.

            I said I think maybe it should be considered.  This is a democracy where people are allowed to think what they like.

    I just read that Obama has a 60% approval ranking now.
    The GOP or somebody better come up with something pretty awesome pretty quick or I think we will be looking at four more years.

    Funny how thing worked out.  6 months ago I would have sworn he was not re-electable.  Now he looks like he might be.

    It isn't contrived. It's the result of the takeover of the party by ultra right wing conservatives and the religious right. It doesn't matter who ends up vying for the nomination, they'll choose someone completely out of touch with the  public at large.

    Most moderate and liberal republicans I know walked away from the party several years before anyone had heard the name Obama; and have no intention of rejoining the ranks until some sanity is restored.

    So, barring a miracle I can't see happening, everyone should probably get ready for an additional four years of Obama.
