I don't vote party lines, I vote for whom I feel is the best candidate for the job and so far Ron Paul is looking like that person. If he's not on the ballot, then I'll vote for Obama again because the rest of the Republicans candidates are nuttier than fruitcakes.

When York asked about whether she was submissive, the crowd booed and hissed, loudly.

Bachmann batted it aside. "I respect my husband, he's a wonderful godly man, and we respect each other."

As I said at the time of the Post profile, "Bachmann's really comfortable being her own woman. She gets by in the House's "boy's club" just fine. When she wanted to issue a response to the State Of The Union address that would steal away from her party's official response, she asked for neither permission nor forgiveness. If Bachmann's been spending her career doing her husband's bidding rather than her own, it's not remarkably apparent." I'm honestly surprised this even came up as a question.

All the clips on radio and tv do not feature Herman Cain or Jon Huntsman. It's like they weren't even there.

Unbalanced reporting to say the least.

Looks to me as though the Repubicans know they do not have real candidate to beat Obama. They are secretly going to not try so hard. They know they have a 50/50 chance of Beating him of he cannot run, so hey will bide their time untill 2016 when they will really turn on the heat and still come up short.

Congressman Paul has made waves this week following controversy over the establishment media’s deliberate policy to ignore his candidacy, an issue that became the focus of a Jon Stewart Daily Show skit that has since gone viral and received millions of views after being posted on the Drudge Report.

In the days following the fallout from the straw poll result, the establishment media has now seemingly switched tactics. Instead of simply pretending Ron Paul doesn’t exist, they have resorted to re-hashing a decades-old smear about racist comments that were never even made or approved by Paul, a claim that was thoroughly debunked during the last presidential election cycle four years ago
