Foreign policy debate tonight on CBS, should be interesting. Hopefully Cain's many stumbles in this area (which there almost certainly will be) will take him out the of the race for good. I swear, if he brings up 9-9-9 one more time...

I expect it to be a Romney & Gingrich show. A poll a few days ago asked which candidate they trusted most on foreign policy and the military. Romney got 26% with Newt at 21%. Should be a good battle.

The Gingrich Surge Has Come - NYTimes.com

Follow the link to see the poll graphs.

Quote:
Mr. Romney’s polls seem to be bending down a bit. Over the past week or two, we’ve seen a larger number of polls, both at the state and national level, that show him below rather than above 20 percent; the trend line from our graph, in fact, now has him at only about 18 percent overall. Considering that other Republicans have had their problems during this time period, I would call this trend at least mildly worrying for Mr. Romney’s campaign. I certainly consider Mr. Romney the clear favorite to win the Republican nomination, but these numbers do not exactly suggest that there is anything inevitable about it.
Quote:
If Mr. Romney and Mr. Cain are on a somewhat downward trajectory, you’d expect to see another candidate gaining ground. And that candidate is, indeed, Newt Gingrich. He’s polling in the mid- to high teens in most recent surveys, with occasional forays into the 20s. Also, for whatever reason, his state-by-state polls have generally been better than his national polls, so if anything the national surveys may somewhat understate his momentum. This method now shows him at about 18 or 19 percent of the vote, meaning that he’s roughly tied with Mitt Romney.
Quote:
But the biggest piece of news here is Mr. Gingrich and his rise in the polls: he, Mr. Romney and Mr. Cain may now be in a rough three-way tie for the Republican polling lead. Polls certainly aren’t everything in a presidential primary, and for reasons I outlined earlier this week, Mr. Gingrich might have trouble maintaining his momentum as his campaign begins to receive more scrutiny. Still, it looks as if he’s going to enjoy his moment in the sun.
While I am trying to play Nostradamus...or even Hans and Frans, I should also include this link which was from that same blog post.

the tea party is now flipping from Cain to Newt.

I'm not too good with math, but this shit is crazy. Here are their hopefuls for the "It takes a Carter to get a Reagan" 2012 contest, in order of 15 minutes of desperation:

Palin, Trump, Bachmann, Perry, Christie, Palin (again), Cain, Newt

Everyone of the above listed has some serious issues or baggage, or isn't running.

Palin - former half term gov of Alaska, couldn't finish her term, dumb as shit
Trump - horrible comb-over, not running
Bachmann - married to a crazy closet case
Perry - makes Palin look smart
Christie - not running, he's bigger than the goodyear blimp, could explode at any moment!
Cain - 9-9-9, sex-sex-sex, princess Nancy
Newt - smart guy but more baggage in his personal life than a 737

Sooner or later the batshit teabaggers are going to have to realize that Mitt Romney, despite his flip flopping, is their best bet to beat Obama. The rest of the field is either batshit crazy (which is fine with the TP) or too stupid to know their hole from an ass in the ground.

It will be funny to see them rally around a guy who's not the traditional Christain Conservative type, since religion is such a big thing with them. But hey, its better than a commie muslim jew-hating terrorist sympathizing marxist socialist radical left wing extremist, right? Poor Jesus.

talk about a party of no ideas. Gingrich, the man who was Speaker of the House more than a decade ago and turned into Clinton's whipping boy, is now the great conservative hope for the 2010's?





well, hey, i guess we'll see.

If Frank Rich and Jon Stewart raised a child and that child graduated from UC Davis with a Poly Sci degree, did an internship with Congresswoman Maxine Waters and then went on to host a show on MSNBC...

...that's the sort of political analysis I'd expect to hear.

Keep it up and I'm pullin' for the Pokes on Dec 3rd.

No, he pretty much accurately summed up the GOP race. I know plenty of Republicans who are fucking embarrassed by this field.

If you aren't embarrassed, then you might be missing something.

Go fug yourself.

Speak ill of the Sooners and you completely lose me.

Did I just tip my hand?
Fuck it.

Outside of egregious Penn State cover-ups, there is nothing better than CFB.

for anybody that's needs more information why Romney will most likely be the nominee, here is a good article with supporting poll

CNN Poll: Gingrich soars, Cain drops – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

and here is a link to a pdf doc of the poll

http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2011/im.../14/rel18b.pdf

Romney will give Obama a good race, he has a decent shot to win, too.

Not if he keeps opening his mouth with soundbites like this:

Quote:
Mitt Romney suggested on Friday that he was open to introducing “private sector competition” into the health care system U.S. military veterans receive.

doesn't matter

will be forgotten by general election, we all know he will have proper sound bites then, and plenty of money to flood the airwaves, internets, and mail boxes, church and synagog parking lots.

Check out this video of Cain. The first two minutes are killer.

Brutal: Cain blanks on Libya, supports collective bargaining for public employee unions � Hot Air

The writer of the accompanying article (which is on a very conservative website) makes a great point about what the Cain campaign has become:

His candidacy’s now basically an experiment to see if there’s anything he could say about policy that grassroots conservatives wouldn’t ignore/forgive in the name of nominating a candidate who’s “authentic” instead of some slick RINO Beltway insider phony. Is there anything? Or can any screw-up be dismissed so long as it’s “clarified” a few hours later, knowing full well that undecideds won’t be as forgiving if he pulls something like this in a debate against Obama? How steep is the authenticity grading curve here, exactly?


The article also details ignorance/waffling on Governor Walker's union efforts.

ETA: Whoops- posted this in the Obama thread and not the GOP thread...

How long have we been asking this question here in FYM?

Probably ever since I've been here.

Romney is the best and only shot to win. I don't see Newt appealing to women voters enought to overcome his personal bullshit.
