Prostitution, taxes, heroin, religion, pizza: Those wacky Republican presidential candidates

There are 6 comments on the Statesman Journal story from May 10, 2011, titled Prostitution, taxes, heroin, religion, pizza: Those wacky Republican presidential candidates. In it, Statesman Journal reports that:

Hollywood is reportedly at work on a remake of the 1991 film "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead." This, however, is unnecessary, because a remake is already playing.

It is funny how prohibitionist try and paint those that do not agree with them as "Pro-Drugs".

Prohibition did not work in the 1920's nor is it working today. 8 people are killed daily across the river because of prohibition. At what point do we say, let's try something different?

Let's start with marijuana which is far less harmful than alcohol, the most abused drug of all. Yet alcohol is legal because....prohibition was a failure. Those that do not learn history are doomed to repeat it, so goes the war on drugs.

And where does the power of the government end in regards to personal decisions that are of no harm to anyone else? Soon they won't allow us eat french fries or make kids meals outlawed. When happy meals are outlawed, only outlaws will have happy meals.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over yet expecting different results, so goes the failed war on drugs.

The GOP is suppose to stand for liberty (and less government too (LMAO!), so why do they support less freedom?

It should be obvious to even the GOP faithful, they are nothing but hypocrites.

If this is the best the Republicans got, no way Obama will loose.
All these guys are unelectable crackpots.

I like Jeb Bush, "the Bush boy with a fully functioning brain.(and no documented cocaine history)" But I dare say he is too smart to run against Obama. He will wait until 2016.

Looking at this field of loosers they have put up, Obama has got it next time around.

Obama is doing just fine. Sorry Rush Limbaugh, Shaun Hannity, and Bill O'Riley don't like him, but those guys don't much like their own mothers.

Obama is good.
Republicans are lame. They have no one who is electable. but go ahead and try to run the country from Congress.

By the way, Obama killed Bin Ladin. Maybe the republicans should be shouting about getting out of the middle east since the main objective has been completed.

Limbaugh will oppose Ron Paul, just as he opposed McCain for the nomination.
Yes, with "regime change" accomplished in Iraq and Afghanistan, all objectives are achieved with bin Laden dead. But Obama will leave the troops there.
We're continuing on the globalist path, in spite of what Obama said as a senator and candidate. Now we apparently need to stay and protect the new regimes for 60+ years - just as we still occupy Germany and Japan.

Ron Paul will bring a lot of military units home, and include defense cuts in balancing the budget.
Obama will make no attempt to balance it. He "negotiates" for a bigger deficit.$1.29 trillion per year isn't enough debt for him.

first off,

Obama said he would close Gitmo. Well obviously he learned some stuff we did not know when he became pres and deceided to continue there. I do not believe he 'lied' about wanting to lcose it. Good move on his part. I believe that his policies on prisioner treatment produced the results Bush could not get by torturing people. 8 years of Bush war make it impossible for us to just pick up and and leave afgan and Iraq. We have overstepped our origional plan in the mid east Years before Obama came into office. Bin Ladin's plan blew up 4 planes and 3 buildings. We retaliated by destroying a 3rd world country, and deposing and killing the leader of a country not even involved in the origional 9-11 Attacks

Our actions in the Mid East under Bush were stupid, there is no denying that,(unless you are a republican, then denying the obvious is easy) These wars are why we are in ecnomic strife. Millions a day over there and no end in sight because of Republican policies based more on revenge than justice.
No country in the history of the world has experienced ecnomic growth while fighting foreign wars for 10 years.

Bush was an Idiot and he cost our country Trillions, and Americans died because of his 'Texas Oil Man' duty to the Middle east.

Obama has done wellin the face of a completely deranged opposition, and a huge uphill fight

Bush, Bush, Bush!
I thought we were talking about a Republican congressman who opposed Bush's policies, and consistently voted against them!

You drive home one point very well: To argue for Obama's reelection you must continue to direct the conversation back to George W. Bush.

I suppose that's why polls (both CNN.& Rasmussen) show Ron Paul as the candidate with the best chance of beating Obama. He isn't a Bush "neocon".

Rep. Paul even voted against raising the debt ceiling every time Bush asked Congress to do so - and voted against all 8 of Bush's unbalanced budgets. O'Bummer can't accuse him of hypocrisy.
Yes, I think Ron Paul's time has come.
