Romney's polling numbers are static at around 30%.

The others are up and down like rockets.

Still, if Obama's numbers continue as they are, it
won't take much of a challenge to beat him. All
the Republicans need to do is keep the economy
in failure mode for another 12 months.

Romney is a bland elitist version of President Obama with no new ideas. He's a socialist (Romneycare) tax cutter (typical GOP mantra). The worse of both worlds.

$70 million dollars… is that a lot?

Because that’s how much money President Obama raised in the last quarter; that’s more than all the GOP non-presidential candidates combined…

The anxiety builds as the right-wingers see the 2012 election slowly slipping away (not that they had any chance in the first place), LOL.

If the GOP elects Romney, they might as well have another Bush. Romney will end up spending as well...but give tax cuts so as not to cover that spending. I really don't see the difference from Bush. Except Romney is the man behind Romneycare.

President Obama and the Dems did a very good job at keeping us out of a depression, which is what typically follows a recession.

The economy was on the road to recovery until the GOPTEA took over the house and thwarted all efforts to continue that road to recovery. Truth hurts huh?

Attention Moron Cow Patty!!! Obama's campaign funds are the results of loaning taxpayer money to green communist jackasses who in turn donate it back. Projects like high speed rail environmental studies and other crap go to shills. On the bright side it does not matter how much the lily white bill ayers' puppet raises he’s going back to Chicago...bank on it.

Attention democRat Convict!!! If Romney is the nominee and is elected rest assured if he goes Massachusetts on us he'll think twice. The American people are fed up with obama's self-serving chump change communism destroying their prosperity, hope and dreams. If any bill or regulation looks obama and democRat it better be thrown out pronto or Mr. Romney will hear the voice of the American People loud and clear. We will hold his feet to the fire...capice?

It is a combination of tax cuts, and removal of unnecessary regulations. We also need revenue, ie., more real jobs, not government jobs. Why do you think 2012 will be worse for Democrats then 2010? They have killed more jobs then any administration in History. They want 1 world government, and we won't give them the money.

And how about putting more American boots on the ground in Uganda. Africa is more Europe's problem, but American politicians send their country's youth and spend Americans money.

WHERE IS EUROPE? America is not the policeman of the world!

America is belittled by Barack Obama and other foreign nations and still we lick the feet of other nations.

Disgusted! Let Europe spend their funds and deal with the African problem. It was their colonial explorations and habitations that America is cleaning up.

LOLOL...no you won't! You'll just bend over and take it for 4 or 8 years like you did under Bush! And say "thank you sir..may I have another"..and why? Because he has an (R) next to his name.

Hardly. This President spent here at home. His administration also stopped the slide into a depression and also finally hunted down Bin Laden. President Obama IS better than Bush. You can dislike Obama....but your defense of Bush completely discredits you and shows how clueless you truly are. Thank you.

Ron Paul is the ONLY real choice, the ONLY sane and smart one, the ONLY economic expert and Constitutional expert, the smartest one, the one who deals with auditing the Federal Reserve. He is the only one who would stop the corruption from both parties, and stop the big spending from both parties, take both parties down for good. But, since the fake Libertarian tea party does not want a REAL Libertarian, and they don't want the smartest guy on Earth, then they will have to settle for Romney. Romney is not all bad. He is comfortable in his own skin. You can see when he talks he is strong inside, not going to freak out about things. He is middle of the road. He would probably make everyone purchase health care and he's sane enough to deal with global warming. Not all bad. I don't like his talk about processing shale oil. I doubt he is going to get us into another war whereas the other neocons would get us into a war in Iran. I do like it Trump bought Romney. Romney will do a trade war with China, so he has many good points. Ron Paul is my number one choice, if not Ron Paul, Romney. If not Romney, I would rather Obama stay in office as he will not war with Iran, and will get us off of oil and he does deal with global warming. He will create more and more jobs, he has already created more jobs than Bush did in 8 years. I don't want any of those nuts who want to end clean air and water, who would end the minimum wage and spend trillions invading Iran for the oil. No thanks. WE did that for 8 years. No more wars for oil companies and for corporate profits. Obama will spend too much, but at least it will be spent in the U.S., not in Iraq and Afghanistan. Ron Paul 2012. I wish the people would get this one right.

Cain is insane. He raises taxes on everyone 27 percent, ends social security and Medicare, he lied he had an economist make his 999 plan. Turned out Rich Lowery is a Wells Fargo Bank employee, NOT an economist and they got that 999 plan from SimCity video game. Cain is beyond insane.

Obama is going to be interesting in a debate against any of the Republicans because he is getting us off of foreign oil and on to clean, renewable energy, he did create more jobs in 2 years than Bush did in 8 years, he got Bin Ladin and two other top terrorist leaders, he also got rid of Gadhafi. He also gets credit for stopping the assassination of the Saudi embassador, so he held the line with Iran and also did not get us into a war with Iran. Also, now that Trump has put the pressure on for a trade war with China, the Congress passed tariffs on Chinese imports and now Lindsey Graham is bringing up a bill to force China to bring its currency up to its real value. If that passes, Obama also gets credit for the trade war with China, for stopping outsourcing. I believe Ron Paul can clearly out debate him, he is also not for wars and not for the Patriot Act, so he is a very different spin. But the rest of the Repubs will be hard pressed to outperform Obama in a debate, especially if the trade war with China goes through on his watch. JMO.

The other thing Obama should do is GET Gadhafi so he can go on trial for blowing up the Pam Am jet. That would cement it for him, IMO. He needs to have special ops get ahold of Gadhafi. That would help him a lot.
