Mary Fallin already has a better resume than Obama had when elected.

Plus being younger and more attractive than the stroke-addled Hillary.

Bah, Santorum is an honest, decent, hard working, family man, run him by all means. He would have done well in 2012 if he could have kept his mouth shit.

Holy sh!t, the Dow is at 14,440? Remember after the Bush debacle and the Dow was down under 7,000?

Come on, think back, you'll remember.

Good job Mr. President. Homer and his now solvent 401K may yet retire at a relatively young age.

I do understand some caution needs to taken when
a candidate is very religious.
Thing is...The left just painted Santorum as a religious wacko.
My opinion he is not a wacko....he had a wonderful
working middle class conservative message...that would play
very well in the Mid-West.

But...you are somewhat right....the left would paint Santorum
as a religious wacko, that is Santorum weakness.
So he would have hard time in gaining the youth vote.

Conservatives have to make huge gains in the youth vote.
Rand Paul would for sure do that....but not so much Santorum.
But conservative always need a strong voter turn out from
the religious right....Santorum would for sure do that...not
so much for Rand Paul.

I want a winnig ticket...and just want to depend on the
Tea Party memebers in congrees to lead the way.
I think Rubio on the ticket would be winner....even if I don't
like or trust him.

Really? She's a year old than my step-father, but started work (as a career politician?) in 1990. She's also seems a bit in the Sanford, Giuliani, Halley, etc., mode of "family values" rethuglicans. I thought the juxtaposition of these elements from her bio was interesting: "In late January, following a heated Oklahoma State Board of Education meeting, Governor Fallin proposed major changes to the Oklahoma State Department of Education's organization and structure. The controversy arose over the Board of Education rejecting three senior staff members of Oklahoma State Superintendent of Public Instruction Janet Barresi. Under Fallin's proposed changes, the Board would be stripped of its administrative powers and those powers would be transferred solely to the State Superintendent, thus reducing the Board to more of an advisory committee to the Superintendent as opposed to a government body of the Department.[10]

On February 7, Governor Fallin addressed the Oklahoma Legislature in her first State of the State Address. In her Address, Fallin called for streamlining and modernizing the State government, reforming education, and reducing health care costs in the State. She also presented her 2012 Oklahoma state budget spending request for considering by the Legislature. She proposed to make up the $400 million budget deficit through a combination of a 5% across-the-board agency budget cuts, increased tax enforcement, state agency consolidations, and government modernization to overcome the budget shortfall.

On July 14, 2011, Governor Fallin responded to a heat wave sweeping her state by asking citizens to seek divine intervention. "The power of prayer is a wonderful thing, and I would ask every Oklahoman to look to a greater power this weekend and ask for rain," Fallin said in a news release.[11][12]
Personal life
Divorce

In early December 1998, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol bodyguard for Lt. Gov. Fallin resigned after admitting to unprofessional conduct. The Fallins had filed for divorce the previous week, amid allegations by her estranged husband that she had an affair with a bodyguard.[13][14]

Public Safety Commissioner Bob Ricks issued a statement saying that rumors had surfaced in early September about alleged unprofessional conduct between a member of the executive security detail and the lieutenant governor. According to Ricks, the trooper first denied the allegations, but, when questioned again in October, admitted to the improprieties. He was allowed to resign, but his admission did not say that any sexual activity was involve.

Obama got 4 million votes less than in 2008 and still won. Republicans are screwed.

I find it interesting that in 2000 Bush got 50 million or so votes(about 1/2 a million less than Gore) and in 2008 got over 62 million, I hadn't realized with his poll numbers barely treading 50% that he was so popular.

Tell me that sh!t doesn't add up. Diebold did some serious counting for Bush.

The bottom line is a strong fiscal Conservative who avoids social issues like abortion and homosexual marriage that are completely in the hands of the courts anyway.
