Do you think this will open the gate for Palin and/or Bachmann??
I hope not!
It's hard to believe that either could be nominated.
I think the GOP would like to move more back toward the center but with Romney's waffling explanation of his Mass. health care law, it looks like he's going to dissolve on contact.
No frontrunner, no young lions surfacing and Newt is the best known candidate. Wow.
Newt is probably the smartest of the GOP field, but I don't like him. He's a hot-head with bad luggage. lol
Supposedly, the Obama administration has said that Huntsman would be the hardest Republican to beat, but I don't know much about him.
Newt has absolutely NO chance. After his personal scandal, most would not vote for him. Especially after the media gets the word out. Newt is the picture of what the left says is wrong with the right....
I really hope Palin and Bachmann run lolll - it's a sure bet for the Obama if they do.
I'm pulling for Bachman or Trump. Or Trump and Bachman.
No, both of these have proven to be poison. Palin has been tamed since the Arizona assasination attempt. Bachman only hurts the R's chances.
No surprise there he had dismantled his campaign offices in SC a while ago a clear indication he wouldn't run. I was surprised with his reason though... basically he thinks Obama can't be beat.
I don't think the Huck wanted to go through the ordeal of running again. I like Mike. Guess I need to learn more about Herman Cain now! I think it would be cool for us to have two African Americans running for POTUS. That should stop the racist comments!
If he implied that....I think he's right. There is no one in the current field of candidates that can beat Obama. The right needs to focus on the Senate Elections in 2012. That is where progress can be made. Let the left have the Presidency and win a super majority in the Senate.
NOT TRUE! He did not want to give up that 7 figure contract for his show! the POTUS only gets 400K a year!
I completely agree with you, and the whole hoo rah leading up to his announcement was just for ratings and viewers. Doesn't he have a big home in Florida being built? The money honey.
I'm thrilled he's not running, he would never have won, and he would have cost someone else electoral votes yet again as he did the last go round.
As for Palin and Bachman, who knows. Headline today is Palin in Pelosi's face calling the fancy businesses who get to opt out of health care in Pelosi's district surely "corrupt" poltics and policy, and I heartily agree. My BCBS health insurance renewal was a nightmare, the fine print said renew 30 days prior to the renewal date. Why? The only way to have our policy "grandfathered" and not under the federal plan, and guess what, we didn't read the fine print until it was too late, and aren't grandfathered, and we have no idea what lies for us in the future. That's bull.
The paper work involved just for this Obamacare plan in our tiny renwal probably will take a new fed employee a week's work, and that's bull.
As for Romney, I like him. We all need to be clearer on the 'real' differences in Romney's plan and Obamacare, nobody has said the Mass. health care legislation was unread and of Biblical text proportions with buried bullshit still unknown to this day. Republicans don't doubt we need health care reform, just not socialist, hidden, lying, manipulating, corrupt health care reform.
Romney can not win! that healthcare thing is a major disaster. I did like him and if not for the healthcare I believe he would have won easily. Newt is 90's out with the old and too much baggage. Bachman maybe the one? Palin is better on the sidelines and the media destroyed her. I do like Ron Paul he is a truly honest man and would really do what is needed to get the ship in the right direction(he was really the starter of the grassroots movement). He will not be bought by anybody and very fiscally knowledgeable. Pawlenty...do not think so, Santorum... lost by a million votes in his last race in his own state. Herman Cain definitely better than Obama but lacks the experience. Maybe a sleeper will enter the race and shock everyone. I will vote for a ham sandwich before Obama the Anti-American socialist president!
I actually think Obama will be hard to beat - unless the economy gets even worse. I saw some interesting polls on CNN today, along with comments from political "experts." A majority of citizens don't like Obama's economic policies, along with some of his other policies. They like Obama as a person, however, and they want him to do well. I didn't vote for him, but as an American, of course, I want him to do well! That means we, as a country, are doing well!
Running for President creates tremendous scrutiny and I suspect some can't take the heat....
I would like to see some really good Conservative run...To come out of the Shadows and SAVE us from 4 more years of Obama. I do think he is beatable. I would lean towards Romney, if he could say that his "healthcare" in Mass. is a disaster and he and that state learned it's lesson...and the state is slowly changing it.

So Michelle Bachmann is an elected Republican. She lied on Anderson Cooper's news program. And then the right wing noise machine picked up the lie and repeated it - simply because it made Obama look bad. None of the right wing media zombies thought to fact check this. They...

President Obama again demonstrated his considerable ability to speak persuasively. His advocacy of his health care proposals was powerful and convincing, in my opinion. He explained the details of his proposals, the reasons for them and the way they will work. And he debunked the lies that have...

Newt seems to me to have slit his own throat with his criticism of the Ryan Medicare privatization proposal which was adopted nearly unanimously by the House last month. Moreover, the House vote may have cost the GOP seats in in several elections coming up soon and next year. As Eric Alterman said,...
