Romney's going to win South Carolina and sweep ever state except maybe a few western caucuses that go to Paul.

I was hoping the primary would be somewhat interesting

Reading the 3012 boards dulls one's sense of irony.

Seriously. How many times can we read about the Obamachine 3000 pulling ahead of the Reagantronix QLZ in the race for Mars Mutant Colony's 48 electoral votes? Sheesh!

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

You know, it's bad enough that Mitt Romney is a soulless, lying, candidate of Wall Street that worships a heathen cult. But ruining the primaries and denying us weeks and weeks of election results and pretty maps? That's just a step too far.

At least I don't expect Romney to win in November That'd be awful.

Indeed.  Our current president is a Nobel Laureate.  A Nobel Peace Prize winner, nonetheless, who was awarded that coveted prize even as he was the commander-in-chief of a nation engaged in two wars.  Why change horses now?  We would much rather have another four years of high unemployment, taxpayer-funded bank bailouts, billion-dollar stimulus packages, cash-for-clunkers deals, Presidential missions to the International Olympic Committee that do little more than embarrass the people of Chicago, and Beer Summits in the Rose Garden featuring privileged, self-righteous academics and Cops Who Act Stupidly.

You stuck in 2009?

Anyway, the answer is quite simple, because the alternative is Satan.

Not that I think bank bailouts or billion-dollar (too small!) stimulus packages are inherently bad things. The idea that a President Romney would do anything to lower the unemployment rate is laughable, and the other two examples you cite are irrelevant minutiae.

Everybody who supports Obama deserves everything we get if he gets back in: A new "normal" of 8% unemployment (and 15% underemployment), rising cost of living especially with regards to energy, healthcare and food, an America in decline that nobody looks up to anymore (The key reason why Europe loves Obama), and, last but not least, IRS audits for everybody. At least the IRS audits will employ more bureaucrats and lawyers, I guess.

Yeah! The bailout was too small! Lets imitate Japan in broad-based public works and spending, since we all know what an amazing recovery Japan managed in the 1990s!

IRS audits are increasing at a dramatic rate, and there is no reason to believe this trend will change if Obama is re-elected. FYI: The Obama Administration is especially targeting Americans who live abroad.

I have nothing to hide, but being audited is a HUGE pain in the butt for anybody, and generally amount to a waste of resources, I suspect.

Plenty of links out there about this stuff: http://taxprof.typepad.com/taxprof_blog/2010/02/obama-administration.html

Obviously "everybody getting audits" is hyperbole. The point was this: The rate of audits is going up quickly. The Obama Administration has not exactly been shy about their tax-and-spend philosophy, and part of that entails a vigorous IRS.

As usual Politico you are correct and wise.  It's too bad we don't have a tea party candidate in the race...
