    Let's imagine what Romney would do as president:

    Dismantle the military and "out-source" it using cheaper labor (India, Mexico, China).

    Dismantle the CIA and "out-source" it using cheaper labor (Pakistan, Egypt, Turkey)

    Dismantle the ...

    Just like he did to the companies he bought when at Bain.

    If Donald Duck gets the Republican nomination Obama's gone. The magic that worked for Obama in Chicago just isn't cutting it on the national stage.

    Words of wisdom about socialism & big government:

    "I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle." [Winston Churchill] Talk about trying to pick yourself up!

    "A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul." [George Bernard Shaw] Whooosh! Did this just go over a liberal's head?

    "The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery." [Winston Churchill] And, it's being widely reported that mental illness (not the genetic or birth defect kind) is the main health issue in today's Europe; one out of three have it. Churchill's a prophet!

    "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have." [Thomas Jefferson] And Obama's making sure of that. Another half trillion to do what? Rob Peter to pay Paul? Whooosh!

    If Romney gets the Republican nomination, Obama's gone. Middle America would have someone that's not leaning to far either way.

    If Perry gets the nomination, the election's outcome would be 50-50 because middle America would have two extremists to choose from.

    Hope the Pubs get it right.

    Can anyone honestly tell me that whoever is elected into office is going to be able to change anything in Washington. I think not. The House and the Senate will stop any efforts made by the President to improve or change the direction our country is headed. Yes, this newly elected president may be sincer, honest, and have a great plan to increase jobs, get our economy going in the right direction, secure the futures of the elderly, and the young, but none of that matters, because of the party politics that both sides will play. Nothing will get accomplished. Both sides are only concerned about their individuals party's agendas and not what is best for this country. All I can say is good luck to who ever is elected. Your going to need it.

    From what I've learned of Perry, he'd be at least as bad, if nor worse, than Obama. Instead of a left wing tyrant, he'd be a right wing tyrant. He's self righteous, conceited and believes he knows more than everyone else.

    I just listed to a focus group of Republican voters on Fox....all of them, unanimously, preferred Perry to Romney in last night's debate. They feel that Perry is sincere. They felt that Romney was "too political" and a phony.

    I wonder if they are right?"

    The last time we voted in a folksy "sincere" college cheerleader from Texas he spent 6 TRILLION dollars of money we didn't have, these Fox Republicans better not get duped again.

    Remember GW Bush said he was for "smaller government"? GW Bush oversaw the largest government expansion since the Great Depression.

    Perry is the PHONY, he talks tough, talks succession but laps up the 17 billion in stimulus funds.

    Romney took too long to get aggressive on Perry. This type of slow indecision makes him look bad and weak. H needs to hammer Perry as a tax and spend Texan who like the GW Bush spent 6 trillion dollars of money we don't have.

    Come on Mitt, grow a spine.

    to buckbeaver, (who said of Romney, "how he would govern is anybodies guess"), just look at the man's own life. He is pro-life, pro-family, has shown great compassion for others, loves this great country, has executive experience with a track record at the Olympics, in very understanding of economics, works very hard, finishes what he starts. I believe he would work very hard to lead this country in these trying times, you won't find him golfing every other weekend...he would be a great President.

    Article quote: "Our taxes have doubled since he's been in office. Our spending has gone up double. Our debt has gone up nearly triple," (Ron) Paul said of Perry's decade as governor."

    Agreed; maybe Perry is not the conservative he makes himself out to be.

    That would be tough to hide from those facts.

    All politicians have always "talked the talk" yet very few have "walked the walk". All Romney did was show he's all in to get elected. How he would govern is anybodies guess. Unfortunately now more than ever this country needs strong leadership and none of the republican field has proven they are fit to lead.

    It seems there is a lot about Perry we didn't know before. I haven't verified some of the things said in the debate myself, but it seems like he is not nearly as conservative as he would like us all to think. It was quite the site watching him squirm last night throughout most of the debate.

    Right on. We need this man as President. But I will still be critical when I feel it is deserved.
