Mitt Romney represents the true GOP. He is a strong buisness owner and a common sense conservative. I think he might even have been able to beat Obama in the General Election because he would've blown him out on the economy!

I'll grant you Romney has better business credentials than Bush or McCain, but he'd end up being too divisive for flip-flopping a lot on the abortion issue.

Mitt Romney

“Conservatism, Republicanism, is a philosophy of strength. We believe in a strong military, a strong economy and strong families and values. The way forward is not to look left, but to look ahead. There is too much at stake to do otherwise.”

A investment banker and Mormon missionary?

Hell no, we don't need no Willards in the white house.

Willard's in the White House? Whom are you speaking of...Fred Willard? While it's true we may not need him there it may be true that Mitt Romney would make a great VP for someone. I don't really see him a President but his religious affiliations shouldn't be taken to task here. Why shouldn't a Mormon be in the White House, they're everywhere else in politics?

What's wrong with Mormon missionaries!? Can you tell me? Or are you just prejudice. Don't just say things without a valid argument or you will appear foolish.

Nice talking points, but they're too vague and pandering to be insightful. Every candidate wants a strong military, strong economy, and strong families and values. The trick is finding the candidate whose philosophy can realistically accomplish them. After 8 years of Bush, I'm not touching a Republican candidate with a ten-foot pole.

The first portion of your argument makes much sense Cerin but when you say that "After 8 years of Bush, I'm not touching a Republican candidate with a ten-foot pole." it seems quite unfair. The party doesn't matter...it's the person and it always will be. We don't know who will be running in 2012 but I have a feeling that if President Obama gets us out of this debacle he WILL win another term.

I am a staunch Democrat that has voted Republican on occasion. What occasion, you may ask? On the occasion that the man who was running on the other side seemed to make more sense for the times we were facing and I believed in him more than I could the man of my party. We must all be open to changes that will take place over the next 4 years and go with what makes sense then, whether Democrat or Republican.

" After 8 years of Bush, I'm not touching a Republican candidate with a ten-foot pole."

You shouldn't base your vote on part but on the person. There is more to take into account.

Ron Paul 2012!

I hope Obama does a good enough job to stay in office for another term. If not though, and Ron Paul is running, I will be voting for Ron.

There is always the possibility that someone else will run though, and so it's stupid to say who I'll look forward to.

Doesn't his anti-secular stance bother you?

"The ultimate goal of the anti-religious elites is to transform America into a completely secular nation, a nation that is legally and culturally biased against Christianity."

Yes, it bothers me. After 8 years of an administration that went out of it's way to impose conservative religious viewpoints on our political and legal system, I can't imagine why anyone would want that to continue.
