    unfortunately you are right there is no way that the current people that vote in the GOP primaries will go anywhere near anyone that even comes close to being a centrist.

    I don't want either of them. Neithter of them is fit to be President of the United States. I really wish the Republicans would do something unique, and nominate a GOOD candidate (Huntsman is the only decent one in the race). Somehow I don't see that happening.

    'I grew up in Detroit and my Dad worked at Chrysler. When cars were doing poorly he was laid off. Those are the facts...' - Kathy. | 3:29 p.m. Dec. 3, 2011

    And how well did that work for you?

    Now that you are living in Iowa?

    Let's look at another example:

    Mitt Romney on Job creation:
    From 2003-2007 job growth....0.9%.
    In rankings with the rest of the country...MA was 47th in Job creation when Mitt Romney was there.
    - Think Progress Travis Waldron 06/02/11

    Another example of job 'creation' by Mitt Romney...

    0.9% job growth.

    At least Obama took -700,00 jobs/year under George W. Bush and turned it to...


    Our unemployment is going back down.. to 8.6%.

    NOT the 3.3% RISE from Clinton (4%) to Bush (7.7%).

    Romney: 0.9% job growth in ONE state.
    Obama: 0.9% unemployment rise in ALL 50 states, after the financial meltdown and Republican opposition. 'No'

    And last, the war in Iraq cost $3 trillion US tax dollars.

    How much will Romney's war in Iran?

    Jobs are based on sales of whatever the company is doing or making. Only in a fantasy land do jobs go on because you wish them to. If the company you are working at is not doing well then you lose your job. The only way for a company to get back on it's feet is to trim down to a sustainable level. They need to figure out what went wrong and fix it if they can. Then they can hire people with the job skills to make it go forward to prosperity.

    You are not entitled to a job because you need to support yourself. You must be value added and they have to have the money to hire you

    I grew up in Detroit and my Dad worked at Chrysler. When cars were doing poorly he was laid off. Those are the facts, a company cannot meet payroll has to lay off it's workers.

    To say that you don't want a person to be president that picked up the pieces when companies did poorly and made them better makes no sense.

    Mitt is the best qualified person to be President.

    *'Romney campaign battles Dems, Press over issue of transparency' - By Barrett Haake - NBC News - 11/17/11

    'There it was this morning, on the front page of the Boston Globe, a headline no campaign ever wants to read: Before leaving office, Romney staff wiped records.'

    This, is 'credible?'

    What can we expect in the future?

    "If we re-elect Barack Obama, Iran will have a nuclear weapon. And if you elect Mitt Romney, Iran will not have a nuclear weapon," vowed the former Massachusetts governor.'

    Does this sound familiar?

    It should.

    "The Iraqi regime . . . possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons. It is seeking nuclear weapons.' - George W. Bush - Ohio Speech 10/7/2002

    I do NOT support yet ANOTHER war...

    based on the lie of WMD's.

    A man who factually cheated on his wife, and as such cannot be trusted...

    Or, Mitt Romney...

    'In both cases, there would be major short-term shocks to employment; depending on which scenario you use, a contraction of the Detroit Three would result in direct and indirect job losses of 2.5 million to 3 million in 2009.'

    A man who would let 3 MILLION American jobs...
