I can only hope it comes with all the lighting and dramatic music as the season finales to The Celebrity Apprentice, as well as all the corporate sponsorship.

PS: Does he get to say, "You're fired" to someone at the end? Inquiring minds want to know!

So a question for the conservatives; who are you leaning towards and why?

I'm just curious about where you all stand.

Newt Gingrich. Perry is an imbecile, Cain is following in his footsteps, and I'm just not sure Romney can excite the base enough to win.

Do you think he'll be able to connect with Indepedents in the general though?

I truly don't know. I hope so. I don't necessarily think Romney can.

I also feel like he'll be able to hold his own against Obama when the debates begin, and that'll serve him well.

How do you feel about the fact that Gingrich is an incredibly unlikable person? I mean that honestly. He's by all accounts a huge dick. Not that it's uncommon in politics, but yeah.

Is it odd that i find his personality somewhat likable? I think it probably is

I do understand what you're saying about his personality though. He's a divisive figure, and I think most people will disagree with me on my assessment of his personality. I do find Romney more unlikable though.

I'll probably vote for Obama unless Ron Paul gets the Republican nomination. I like his stance on foreign policy more than anyone else's, including Obama's.

What is it with some people's infatuation with Ron Paul? I don't understand.

If you're implying that I'm infatuated with him, you're wrong.

People may seem infatuated because he is very unique. He tells it as it is, and isn't a demagogue. This especially applies to his stance on foreign policy. Not one politician in America wants to deal with the root causes of terrorism, which are: decades of America's policing the world/being involved in wars that we don't have to be involved in. Instead, most politicians talk about what they think is the best way to be INVOLVED in the Middle East (as if it's a necessity), whether it be sanctions, military presence, threats, whatever it is. Because of many decades of such American policy, the American public is brainwashed into thinking that we have to be involved, whether it be through force or otherwise, and is too blinded with arrogance to even think that this might be drawing hatred towards us.

However, there is a segment of the population that is humble enough to realize that we should mind our own business. Many people all over the world think this as well, but most Americans & politicians simply don't get it. And so when people see a candidate who represents this view, it's a rare site, and so their passion makes them seem infatuated.

I don't agree with most of Ron Paul's extreme free market economic policy, and I think Obama's policy is probably better. But if it really came down to Ron Paul vs. Obama, I would support Ron Paul 100% if it means an end to American militarism around the world.

Romney. I have a preference for governors, people who have worked in the private sector, and he's more of a moderate, which is kind of where I am. And he does the best in head-to-head matchups, which is a big factor. He's more likely to get independents to the polls and help down-ballot.

That said, I am 110% behind whoever the GOP nominee is.

So what? How many times have people in here mentioned how they wished Obama was tougher? Lyndon Johnson was probably the biggest a-hole we've ever had as president, yet the left and the history books seem to hold him in pretty high regard. I thought we all supported competence and intellect over "vote for the guy you'd like to have a beer with."

"We all" who? The people who voted for W? Kept convincing us that Sarah Palin was competent and smart and we were sexists for implying otherwise?

I think the funniest thing about Gingrich being the potential candidate is that I have no doubt that he looks at the Tea Party faction of the Republicans with absolute scorn and thinks that they are too stupid for words. If there ever was an intellectual elitist who isn't even nuanced about it, it's Newt.
