Correct me if I'm wrong, but a when Obama was running for his first term his pastor J. Wright was supposed to be off-limits because we shouldn't question Obama's personal religious background. Why's is Romney's religious background allowed to be questioned now?

Sadly, Obama supporters will believe anything to cover Obama's butt.

How Does a Traditionalist Vote?

An intelligent conservative’s guide to the presidential election

I’ve said on Facebook that I’m tempted to cut out the middleman this November and write in a vote for Goldman Sachs. But if you’re a traditionalist conservative and you want to accept one of the offerings officially on your ballot, which do you choose?

For partisans, this is a no-brainer. For conservatives in the vein of, say, Russell Kirk, it’s anything but. Faced with the non-choice between Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Thomas Dewey in 1944, Kirk said no to empire and voted for Norman Thomas, the Socialist Party candidate. There was no Fox News to tell him a conservative couldn’t do that.

For all that Kirk didn’t like libertarians —“chirping sectaries,” he called them — if he were in search of a peace candidate today he might well consider the Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson. Or, closer to Norman Thomas, the Green Party’s Jill Stein.

There’s even an anti-empire case — not a strong one, but one outlined by Justin Raimondo here — for Barack Obama. The incumbent is at least incrementally better than his Republican rival on foreign policy. It’s impossible to imagine Romney not having done every bellicose thing that Obama that did in his first term (from ramping up the drone war in Pakistan to participating in the Libya attack), and Romney has promised a great deal more: more brinksmanship with Iran, more baiting of Russian bears and Chinese dragons, more taxpayer dollars for Pentagon pork. For a smaller military budget and the prospect of fewer wars — according to both candidates themselves — a pragmatic anti-empire conservative might lean toward Obama.

A traditionalist who prioritizes the Supreme Court and the possibility of eventually overturning Roe v. Wade will lean the other way. Romney may or may not appoint reliably right-wing justices, but Obama would invariably appoint more justices like Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Just as there’s a chance of less war with Obama, there’s a chance of ending Roe — or moving in that direction — with Romney. Weigh the prospects.

Economically speaking, both major-party candidates are prisoners of outmoded ideologies. Obama, a Keynesian without gusto, has been remarkably short on proposals for reviving the economy: he offers just more of the same. Romney pins his hopes to “growth” stimulated by low taxes and lower interest rates, a recipe that notably failed to cook up a solution to the impending crisis during the Bush years. Where the economy is concerned, Obama has had basically nothing to say, and nothing Romney says can be trusted.

There are two meta-considerations for a traditionalist. If Romney wins, he’ll have a Republican House and probably a Democratic Senate, which sounds exactly like the formula that gave us No Child Left Behind in the Bush years.(Once Bush’s party took the Senate, too, we got the Iraq War and Medicare Part D.) Obama would have a Republican House and probably a Democratic Senate, the formula that gave us the sequester and a far cry from the Democratic dominance that gave us the Affordable Care Act. Single-party control of the House and the executive branch has not, historically, been a path to smaller government. If Romney wants conservatives to buy what he’s selling here, he has to convince them of his own kind of “hope” and “change.”

The other thing to keep in mind is the long view: a Republican president means a greater likelihood of Democratic gains the House in 2014. A second Obama term means a good chance of a Republican picking up the White House in 2016, by which time someone much better than Romney might be on the ballot — or perhaps someone much worse. Once more, it’s a question of weighing the probabilities.

Then again, one could always do exactly what Russell Kirk did, and poke both Goldman Sachs and the empire lovers in the eye by writing in Norman Thomas.

Okay, I DO believe in supporting Israel, but even if you don't, you can't believe a nuclear exchange in that part of the world would not affect this country in a negative way. There's more involved here than Israel, but haters can't see beyond their hate. Tunnel vision on your part.

Cursed by God!
When Mitt Romney was teaching Mormonism in France in 1968: the official church position was no blacks allowed!
So let's bring up old schitttt!

Classic republican twister; if you think he was laughing at the above then you have serious comprehension issues.
He was laughing at the incredulity of Ryans statements. I know you don't like Biden, but, he's not a liar and he was on his game last night. Ryan was not, could not answer the questions. It was a good a lively debate, as it should be with a back and forth.
Biden on his game last night? Well if you think it is professional, presidential, to sit there in his chair, smirk a little, mug for the camera's, laugh, interrupt, lie, shrug his shoulders in faux disbelief is on his game you are correct. Check the polls, the majority thought he was a jerk.
