Yes. Just this a.m., I'm thinking it wouldn't be worth voting if Romney is the nominee. It's the jerk factor as much as the similarities you specficy (although you may be getting at it with "unlikeable"). Who would have been their friends in their youth? Other users, manipulators and narcissists. You don't want to be at a party with these people, let alone bein' the boss of me. What a mess.

I know people who worked for Mitt. In the private sector days. They supported McCain last time around...

George --right back at you with knobs on:

"A family with the wrong members in control; that, perhaps, is as near as one can come to describing England in a phrase."

If right-wing Republicans sit out the next election, Obama could still easily win.

How much is your ideological virtue worth to you?

The destruction of a nation?

Because we're within a hairsbreadth of that -- particularly at Defense.

Mrs. P

Am I reading this correctly - that the destruction of the nation will be the fault of the "ideological virtue" of Right Wing Republicans?

The Right Wing has been blamed for everything in the last few years. Plus called about every name in the book at the same time.

And now, when the nation collapses it will be their fault...

Mrs P --

Abstaining is a vote for more of the same.

I'm not enthusiastic about any candidate, including Romney. But I know if he wins, he'll be bookended by Republican, conservative majorities in the House and Senate.

The Ancient

Mrs P --

I wrote that in the back of a car on my iPad. Let me try to do better.

I think Obama is so awful, so destructive, so out-of-sync with what the country so desperately needs that any act that's likely to give him another four years of license is indefensible.

There are millions of people sitting around, bitching, unrepentant about not voting for McCain. I think that's had catastrophic consequences. And they may yet give Obama -- and every bit of nonsense he brings with him -- another four years.

If you don't, well, we disagree.

Cheers, etc.

P.S. Did you know that the Bentham Society in London will occasionally roll Jeremy Bentham's head down the table?

Mrs. P

Actually I think you and I agree perfectly. Which doesn't surprise me and why I want to have lunch with you the next time I'm in D.C as long as you can pass an FBI background check (I do) and they let you use knives when at the table. FLG shall join use but beware - he has to have corks stuck on the end of his fork.

I supported Mitt Romney in the last go around. For '08 he was the best of the lot, hands down. But Obama has been a game changer -see your comments above.

I think the Democrat party has gone off the cliff. Not redeemable. Perry came to this conclusion years ago and became Republican. Romney is a professional undertaker - look at how Bain made its $$$$. Not be generating jobs per se, it flew teams into troubled companies and told them where to cut jobs -for a hefty fee.

My thought are Perry - who admittedly I want to have his baby because he's that good looking - is more suited to what the country needs at this time. Not Romney. He's so close to Obama on so many things - EPA, Healthcare, taxes, etal that I can see now - like many were able to see the destruction of Obama was going to cause when he was a candidate- that Romney is not going to really help the country. He'll tweak around the edges at most and throw Boehenr under the bus as much as possible. Romney -character-wise- needs to be liked, personally.

Rick Perry's energy policies will help us. Bobby Jindal has endorsed him. Gov. McDonnell (VA) is close to endorsing him and should be his VP. Now Steve Forbes has basically crafted Perry's flat tax proposal. We need creativity. Not just a slightly smaller amount of what we've done.

So, do you think I need to go to confession for wanting to have Rick Perry's baby?
