The Okie Corral

I don't have a clue who will win this election and it's rather interesting to see those who apparently have a window to the future spout off their superior knowledge about events not yet having happened.

Weird.

They won't change anything nor learn a lesson from it. What happened to McCain is all repeat right now with Romney.

GOP needs to disbands the party into several parties.

I know... I'm really surprised that so many can't follow some simple format rules!

How do you think a moonbat or wingnut candidate would fare if the majority of the distribution fell in the middle and their respective messages only resonated with the lunatic fringe?

They have most of those- the problem is that those individuals rose to prominence based on their membership in a traditionally non-Republican group... not their intelligence.

Remember the Pizza Man they had back when this all started?

Yeah, he's just an anti-Choice, anti-Gay, anti-Science, Mormaniac.

They need to quit associating themselves with those vocal, nutjob minorities; You know who I'm talking about. They need to realize that their values are more in line with those of America a few decades ago. God, gay marriage, and abortions need to go. Stick to their strong point: fiscal spending.

ETA: In the 2004 election, the Dems were whining left and right about how biased the polls were when they were trailing. The polls were right. The 2008 election showed Obama ahead by a pretty good margin. That poll was right also. Now it's the Republican's turn to whine I suppose, and some people on this forum are doing a pretty good job of downright denying reality too.

I would say build a Way-Back Machine, go back to May of 2012 and put their heart and soul into winning both houses of Congress in earnest. How did they forget this??? Maybe even build a REAL CWA-2 and then EXECUTE it.

They mess this up and screw up the Senate, they have 2 years to STFU and get in line. And even then, it won't matter enough. It'll take 4 years to even begin the dig-out.

Is he running as one?

He's not running as a guy who will ban abortion (though there is a significant bloc out there who would either prefer abortion go back to state control by vacating RvW, so being anti-abortion is not the vote-getter you seem to think it is), opposing gay "marriage" is not a fringe social con issue, thinking global warming is a crock of crap is not being anti-Science, and it's not very conservative to cast aspersions on someone's religion as you have.

But hey, I'm interested in hearing specifics. So what, exactly, makes Romney "anti-science" in a way that traces right back to social conservatives?

The "Christian Taliban" Republicans can't get elected? Someone should tell that to George W Bush. It is a shame that all those gay people were burned at the stake like that...lost an old college friend to that. By the way, I saw some girls walking out of the local school yesterday...when were they allowed back in? I must've missed that.

These contradictions are part of the problem- he opposes "assault weapon" ownership, but promises not to do anything about it. He opposes abortion, but promises not to do anything about it. He created American socialized medicine, but promises to repeal Obamacare.

Maybe once he has power, you put him in front of the right audience and he changes his mind...

If Romney doesn't win this could be the last election in America; that is until we take it back from the Muslim leadership.

The US voter doesn't give a darn about contradictions, else Obama wouldn't have been elected.

Anti embryonic stem cell research, and it's a very defensible argument to be opposed to harvesting embryos for stem cells. Hell, even Clinton didn't support it.

What else?

Most of the country is IN the middle. That's why it's called the middle. Those at the ends are called "extremists" and for good reason.

If Romney were to win, do I have to worry about the Feds regulating how booze will be sold and when ala Utah?

Not being able to get booze at any time of the day is more worrisome to me than the economy or the war on terror or drilling for oil or abortion or UN treaties.

The GOP needs to divorce themselves from religious fanaticism and present candidates who after the most intense of public scrutiny, will still be religiously ambiguent. HH

So you're willing to trade one form of cultism for another?

Not me. Keep America free from theocracy.

This is probably the smartest answer here so far.

The GOP has some great ideas for economics and policy, but it is clear that today's America does not want to be told who to pray to, what to do with their ******s, or who to marry.

EDIT: I can't believe the word for the female reproductive organ was censored by GT! That's a dirty word?
