As I said, what little chance Rick had was blown up by Satan coming to town. There is something about a candidate for POTUS attributing cause and effect to Satan that makes the average American rethink their preference. Besides, every Republican knows that Satan is already in the White House. ROTFMOL

Ma_R, where do you live again?

Tough luck, dude, but sometimes the world moves you to the Left even when you think you are standing still.

You do not understand the downright hate felt toward Barack H Obama, and do not underestimate the opinion that getting rid of Obama is the most important issue facing America today.
Now that's just silly. We have all understood that since day one.
You guys nearly melted down when it was proven to you that Republican Policies were not popular. That Christdogs like Palin could not pull in even enough votes to beat a Black Man.
That Romney, Giulliani, McCain, and all the rest could not put Humpty Dumpty together well enough to win the election.
After eight years of George Bush you still felt some entitlement to the whitehouse. After 12 years of corrupt Republican led Congresses you srttill couldn't believe that Americans might want something a little different. You'll see those gas prices tumble well before the general elections because OPEC doesn't want a Republican President either.
You speaak largely of a certain 30% of Americans who speak loudly and often. But when the other 70% weighs in on election day they are gonna be totally sick of the whole sordid Republican affair.
Me and a lot of other folks are much better off today than we were when Obama took office. You and your party has done everything in it's power to make America fail so Obama could be blamed for it.
As long as we are all looking into our crystal balls here, my prediction is Obama by an unarguable margin and the TEA Party rookies sent home from the House.

Maybe, but in today's America most who are better off are on the public dole and those people traditionally do not vote. I will stand by my contention, and we shall see who is correct. I think you are getting excited about polling data taken in Feb and will be sorely disappointed in the polling held in Oct. Let's face it, the economy sucks and Obama's economic policy of blaming all on Bush has failed to stem the tide of his failure. If gas is at $4.00 and unemployment is at around 9% and Obama is still trying to blame the guy who left Washington 4 years earlier he doesn't stand a chance.

Massachusetts has been, and probably will always be, Moonbat Central. It will forever be home to every left wing, tree hugging, socialist who lives east of the Mississippi and north of New York. I have been calling it Moonbat Central for a couple of years now, because it it a much more descriptive and accurate name than the name Massachusetts.

Oh I haven't read any polling data. My prediction remains as it was well before the primaries even began.
Romney vs. Obama

Obama by a landslide.

TEA Party is dead.

My continuing analysis is that the Primary has been so vacuous and offensive that it will turn even more Independents(like me) against the Republican Party. If that turns out to be correct you guys are in serious trouble....... Hmm

What ideal is that? When did it exist? As far as I can tell, Santorum is dedicated to ideals that never existed in America, well, at least not since the Salem witch trials, and certainly not since the United States came into existence. The US was not founded as a theocracy. Now, while it is true that women were not allowed to vote, and that slavery was enshrined in the Constitution, those were not constitutional values, but acquiescence to political and social realities. Fortunately, we as a nation and society have grown, sometimes painfully, past those anachronistic abominations. I pray we don't return to them. Rick Santorum is a functioning idiot, running on insanity. He should be locked in a padded room, and would, and has been, extremely dangerous with power. Kinda like giving a paranoid schizophrenic a loaded gun.

Hey man, it was just a friendly heads up. You keep using it and everbuddy will think you are a Gingrich man.

I think RR needs a predictions matrix so's we can keep track of who predicts what and who gits it right. Mebbee like a calendar with an automatic reminder of when the prediction is coming ripe. Mebbee a pool so's we can place bets and pretend it's part of the economy?

My view of Santorum (slick way to get back to the topic, wot?) is that he stays popular long enough amongst the straggling gaggle of Reep primary participants to continue to bedraggle Mitt. But come November, after only 10 or 12 Reeps show up to vote for the Really Rich Guy, the whole bunch of elefunks will be shoveling old-fashioned moonbat munoor in the donkey stables.

I am actually pretty confident that the race will get much closer, that Mitt will be the nominee and that baring an unforeseen recovery/national emergency that Obama is in big trouble. I live in Moonbat Central, I am surrounded by liberals and socialists and worse, as if that were possible, and Obama is not a real popular guy even here. Now things could change, but after yesterday's proclamation that the devil is coming to take us away (ha ha), Rick's popularity has reached its maximum possible altitude. As for the rich guy, there is a real case to be made that a successful businessman is what is needed to drive America back to profitability. I wouldn't p!ss on Mitt Romney if he were on fire, but is the lone candidate in the race who can beat Barack. Forget that he is Mormon, forget that he is rich. He is competent and Obama has been proven not to be.

It all comes down to whose argument is better. Mitt will argue that the economy sucks and lay it at the feet of Obama, Obama will argue that the mean Republicans in Congress wouldn't work with him and that it is all GW Bush's fault and that he really didn't know how bad it was going to be and that that $4T he added to the deficit really shouldn't count. Today Obama is making a comeback because the press is publishing fluf and the Republicans are focused on the presidential election. Eventually Congress will have to actually do something and everything turns upside down. The ammunition for Mitt to use in a debate is so plentiful that Mitt will have to decide what argument will be best for the situation.

Mr. President, why haven't you produced a budget in three years?
Mr President, explain to us again how food stamps are good for the economy.
Mr President, explain to us again how unemployment is good for the economy.
Mr President, $4.50 per gallon?
Mr President, explain again why you didn't support the Iranian citizens when they were protesting in the streets?
Mr.President, please explain to me why you didn't know that your administration was an international gun dealer?

Santorum is toast, there isn't anything he can do about it now.The view of Santorum will be seen in the rear view window.
