Given the fact that most polling data shows any of the Disney Land Characters can beat Obama this coming November the liberals need to start seeking out the religions of their choice and begin praying that Romney isn't their next US president. Democratic strategist James Carvelle knew what he was talking about when he offered just one word of advice to Obama: Panic.

Rifleman,
Yep. It is never too late to push that red button. Maybe Staples can help Mr. Obama.

Usually, when we have a new President, people of all parties work together to make the government work for the benefit of all. This is the first time I have ever seen people, especially elected officials do the opposite. It is also the first time I have ever seen the service of a man used as a club against him because he served under an administration of the opposite party. Is this what some want their children to be seeing and learning of our country's noble government? Please, I hope not! It will be one way to ensure that serving the government becomes unpopular. Statesmanship seems to be a memory, doesn't it?

"This race has degenerated into an onslaught of negative and personal attacks not worthy of the American people and not worthy of this critical time in our nation's history. I call on each campaign to cease attacking each other and instead talk directly to the American people about how our conservative ideas will create jobs, reduce our nation's debt, stabilize energy prices and provide a brighter future for our children and our grandchildren."

I appreciate Governor Huntsman's tone of civility. The governor's race a few years ago between Huntsman and Scott Matheson was one of the best races I have ever seen because they talked about the issues and didn't attack each other. I wish our other elections would follow the same route.
