    I mean Clinton was no surprise. But Mitt's ahead (at the moment) by 10 percentage points. I wonder if that's all the Democrats registering in the Republican primary and then voting for the candidate that they think is most beatable?

    RW, try to contain your excitement.

    Mitt's victory is what a lot of Dems wanted so as keep the Republicans embroiled in fighting each other and spending lots of money. In fact, at least one liberal website was telling Michigan Dems to either vote uncommitted (rather than for Hillary) or for Mitt.

    :woohoo:

    I really don't have a single candidate to vote for. This is so pathetic. Ambulance chasers, flip floppers, preachers, Amnesty lovers, wife swappers, a noob, and a bitc...:D It really is a crappy set of choices. I feel like a health freak trying to order dinner at Taco Bell.

    I would think that would be Huckabee, not Mitt. The Dems would have a field day with him!

    :rofl: :eat1: Fred Thompson is claiming on FOX right now that he's the only conservative in the race! "We're gonna paint this state red, white and blue!" Theyr'e all talking about the candidates as if Paul doesn't exist.

    Michigan:
    Paul - 6%
    Thompson - 4%
    Guiliani - 2%

    I think the dems want the huckster as an opponent. The guys record is terrible and it hasn't come to light yet (for whatever reason). If he ever got the nomination, he would be cooked inside 2 weeks. With the war going well now, that can't be issue #1 with the dems come general election time.....their #1 issue now is the economy. Huckabee is terrible on the economy as is McCain....it is Romney's strongest issue. If the dems want the economy to be the number one issue for them, they don't want to face the GOP's best guy on that issue.

    Yeah, he'd be a great choice. On the other hand, the Republicans are really good at national elections, so I'm not sure I'd want to risk someone like him becoming president. I think I'd rather play it safe and hope the Republicans choose someone more moderate like McCain. That said, I think the Republican candidates are overall weaker than the Democratic ones. I think Obama would be very tough candidate to beat; he's run a marvelous campaign so far.

    While i agree he has run a great campaign, his record has never come up. During the GE his record will come up, and he has almost no experience.....that's a tough sell. There is no way he could get a job an a to executive at a big company (GE, Ford, ect...) so what qualifies him to get the top executive job in the land?

    All the goops that stand behind him grinning like he does with their change signs keep yelling "Change Change Change" then when somebody asks Beautiful Oboomba just what it is he is going to change and how he plans to go about his wonderful change he gives another "Big Grin" claps his hands and walks away.

    Obammy is a smooth talking grinning very dangerous far left Liberal who still secretly embraces the Islamic Religion, the same Religion America is at war with, if he gets to far ahead in this Election Pant Suit Hillary will let us know all about it, she won't mention it herself but she will instruct her "goon squad" when and how to pull it off, the Clintons are experts at this.

    Believe it or not Obama is a Muslim.

    Huckleberry isn't going to be the Repub candidate. Look at who the Dems and their press allies are ignoring/down-playing/shining in a dim light: Romney. Even the liberal-left Concord Monitor in New Hampshire ran a front-page editorial: [size=+2] Romney Must be Stopped!![/size].

    So, you know who your best candidate is by who their enemies fear the most. Romney has the best record as a family man, a straight-dealer in business, and as a balanced-minded politician. Though he may seem to "waffle" on issues, it is more a sign of re-thinking from a more honest point of view than to deny the truth.

    Also, look how Fred Thompson has been ignored, put into a "third tier" light by so many of the mainstream media (almost all Democrats). Thompson has solid values and a good -- though somewhat elder -- persona.

    Fred Thompson is an actor. His main skill is the one that most politicians spend years trying to refine and hone - the gift of being able to fool people into believing he is something he is not. Just ask his first wife. And then, ask his second wife after she's used up. Solid values, huh?

    And you're right that the MSM is wrong to label him a third-tier candidate. He's clearly a fourth-tier candidate.
