Politico makes me more anti-Romney.

Just throwing that out there.

Good. A bunch of clueless youngsters ragging on Romney is exactly what we want. Whatever you do, DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE tell your parents, grandparents, and aunts/uncles how much you hate Romney...

Interchangeable. However, Republicans and "conservatives" would be more likely to oppose warmongering and stupid/evil policies under Obama. And the public would be much more likely to blame liberalism or socialism for the country being in the toilet.. I don't think OWS' nonsense (or worse) would have as much of a chance of gaining a serious foothold in public opinion under him. So I guess Obama, if you held a gun to my head. Of course there's a small part of me that would be happy seeing him lose in an landslide to just about anyone.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Beyond Ron Paul, where is the Republican opposition to any kind of warmongering?

You had Bachmann & Co. opposing Libya, and relatively anti-warmongerish Donald Trump did lead in the polls at one point (admittedly not for that reason).  Still not typical in the GOP, but non-warmongering ideas are much more popular within them than in '08.

That's mostly what I was getting at, but you had at least a few Republican politicians and talk radio hosts claiming to be anti-NDAA or SOPA or whatever. Does anyone see that happening under Romney? I honestly think the best chance (however slim it is) for this country to regain some sanity is for us to hit rock bottom under Obama.

Personally, I don't think I've heard more blatant chest-thumping out of a Presidential candidate since Reagan, than that which spews forth from Romney.

It makes people feel more secure... but by God it costs.

By the standards of Obama (or, actually, any Democratic president since Cleveland except maybe Carter, who's about tied), Reagan pursued a generally peaceful foreign policy.

As in didn't engage in any real wars... sure - but bloating the DoD and *cough* Iran Contra... Reagan did plenty.

Oh, I don't disagree, but at this point for either party to reduce themselves to merely Reagan levels of "chest-thumping" would be a major improvement.

Granted, but only Romney is promising a massive Reaganesque bloat of the DoD... at the same time as cutting taxes, and bringing the Budget into surplus... Jesus... his hair must be magnificent Wink

Balancing the budget, and eventually running surpluses to lower the national debt load. Mittster will give the federal government a haircut--hell, a buzzcut--it has never seen before.

Will President Romney receive.a.buzzcut in order to show solidarity with the shaven government?

Change your avatar to blue, and you're now a 2004 Republican supporter of George W. Bush!

Just say no to re-electing incumbents who do not deserve re-election.
