Here is another maybe. Maybe the party does not appeal to a diversified America. You know, the other 47%.
Sure -- skew the facts even more. The 47% who want to keep their freebies will likely follow Barry to the end to preserve their gifts. Romney knows he probably cannot change their minds, so why waste his campaign money to talk to them? They are already being taken care of, so he does not need to worry about them. His focus is job creation.

You can keep pushing the race card, but here is the deal. Conservatives are not racist -- they simply want EVERYONE who is able to work, work. That pays the bills -- our own and towards taxes.(there is some math involved here, so take it slow). So if having to work offends a minority, then there is a bigger issue at hand.

How do you debate someone who has been running on tax cuts across the board 20%, and when they start the debate all of a sudden that is not his position? The challenge will be getting the facts out of what Romney is really for compared to what he is claiming during the debate.
You come to the debate prepared, with your plan spelled out clearly, and don't worry about zingers and hate speech. You speak of the unyielding members of the house and in the same breath say that Romney can't change his stance? Obama needs to pack his trash and come back when he is prepared to REALLY lead this country. For now, I'll give someone else the shot.

Do you think no one remembers that Barry's first two years enjoyed a Democrat majority in the House and Congress? He squandered it by focusing on Obamacare -- and STILL had to make dirty deals to push it through.
You are correct -- Republicans DO want Barry to be a one-term president.
He squandered nothing. He passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, written by house and senate democrats.

"Recovery Act directly employed more than 700,000 Americans on construction projects, research grants and other contracts. That number doesn’t include the jobs saved or created through its unemployment benefits, food stamps and other aid to struggling families likely to spend it; its fiscal relief for cash-strapped state governments; or its tax cuts for more than 95 percent of workers. Top economic forecasters estimate that the stimulus produced about 2.5 million jobs and added between 2.1 percent and 3.8 percent to our gross domestic product."

I bet the republicans will think twice before alienating most of the demographics of the country. Who knows, they might even put Rubio in a dress in 2016 election.

You may believe all the hype, but I do not. As with his other "achievements", they will have lasting effects that will have negative implications after he is long gone (see below). Keep digging -- you'll strike fool's gold on occasion.

"Congressional Budget Office director Douglas Elmendorf reiterated his initial assessment of President Obama’s $800 billion “stimulus” package — that while it may boost the country’s GDP in the short-term, in the long-term, the effect of such spending is a net negative on GDP growth."

Me too. Huntsman was my favorite GOP candidate. A man with conscience, unlike the one they picked.

He has a lot of good ideas, but a couple of them for me are over the top. I'd vote for him just on principle to be inclusive of other candidates because I'm pissssed at the lockdown of the current system. OTOH, I basically like Obama and it's a little too close to call.

You are 100% wrong. Obama visited Charlottesville in the afternoon, and some afternoon programming WAS cancelled to show his entire speech. The Romney/Ryan rally happened in the evening, and so it was evening programming that got cancelled. I watched coverage of both (I have a TV at work), so I witnessed how NBC29 covered both events. I don't think NBC29 had any say in what times the events started, so if you didn't see Obama's entire speech in the evening, it was because it happened (and was covered live) during the day. Furthermore, neither party paid any of the local stations for coverage. That's not how it works.

If Romney/Ryan win the morals of the country will be dictated by old men in Salt Lake City and Rome. We don't need a cultist as president and a papist as vice president. Biden is a papist too. Gary Johnson is the obvious choice, he is a true Christian, not these impostors to the faith. I guess the mainstream Republicans and Democrats would consider a Scientologist as a candidate. President Tom Cruise or President John Travolta....
