The polling data gets that Romney is not in yet.
They are in a tie and in a tie the nod goes to the incumbent.

Look at the years of fear under the cold war days that would not have happened had FDR let Patton attack the Russians as he wanted to. As you pointed out, both parties use the tactic and the dumbed down Americans are stupid enough to fall for it
lol! Patton would have had the same problems the Germans had.

And if the communists weren't so bad, why has the US tried so hard to stop that ideology?

You need to check your "facts" about who gets the nod when the polls are tied. It's clear that Obama's Hope and Change bs isn't selling anymore since people have become aware of what kind of change he is hoping for.

I think the Constitution and the Rule of Law should be reinstated, period.
just think, no more UNdeclared wars and the sh!!ty foreign policies that have followed (and the monies and LIVES saved!)...
no more petty beaucratic, NON-elected overseers like the EPA, Depts of Ed and Energy, DEA, ATF, etc...
no more trumped-up phony arrests, either.
pity...

Our military might was superior to the Germans
We had just about perfected the Atom Bomb
Nope, we woudl have mopped the Russians right up...but of course then FDRs Democrat buddies wouldnt be able to fleece the country as much then would they have during the cold war.

just like our uncivilized ancestors did before ANY gun laws were passed, right? must have been why our pop never grew for the first 120 yrs, all that indiscriminate killing...
like the mass starving and deaths due to lack of 'free' HC before 1960's or, if u prefer, the 30's or 2009.

lol! Sure. They had the land to give. They also had what was arguable the best tank in WWII. They also had the numbers and France and Britain were too tired of fighting.

Not to mention there was that little fiasco in the Pacific Russia was ready to jump into.

Besides, how would you convince Americans they needed to sacrifice even more to make war on another country when Hitler wasn't around anymore?

wasn't THAT Ike's warning words? DDE, the LAST true Rep Pres followed by JFK, the LAST true Dem Pres. all to follow in the tank, either a little or whole-hog, with the Prog SCUM agenda.
if the 'Americans' involved with the Occupy movement are any indication, when the TP'ers are all gone, so goes the USofA (to being the USSA).

Romney not in yet. Not by a long shot. At least according to polling data from "Gallup and other".
well, that certainly explains how u missed the point of my post that u opted to respond to... and why u never responded to my follow-up.
all things reveal themselves in due time, don't they?
