I'd call him a marginal intellectual, considering his running mates for the nomination.

There are plenty of well-rounded, educated, fair, and wise conservatives out there, but it is clear they have no home in the Republican Party of 2011. Or the Democratic Party, for that matter.

Lincoln had the defining characteristic of wisdom. Obama was able to turn that on sporadically during his campaign (none since), and Ron Paul has the ability to summon it occasionally, but otherwise we are plum out of it i Washington or at the state level.

I'm just curious about where you all stand.
I'm not really a conservative, but i'd like someone to get the economy going again. Therefore:



having watched most of the debates, i have no use for any of the of the other guys and i despise the tea party, so for me its either Romney or 4 more years of Obama.

You wanna get drunk fast just take a shot every time President Obama uses the personal pronoun I, me or mine, during a speech.

when Gingrich talks about being a "historian" at the price of $1.5m for Fannie and Freddy -- and, remember, you blame a few minorities for the housing collapse, not Wall Street and predatory lending -- then you have to finish your PBR/shot of Jack/Bottle of Chablis.

Cain suspends his campaign, continues to deny allegations. Instead he launches a website. I wonder if a reality show is next.

So if we had a Democratic congress passing left wing bills, you'd still want the president to sign them no matter what? Or does that only apply if the Republicans are in power?

i agree, the "boy" part is probably a bit too far.

but i do think they want someone combative and angry who will shout at the president for being so uppity.

and now they've got him.

Newt never was a shouter.

there are plenty of surrogates that can fill that role.

I am thinking more about his debate performances (that is the only reason we are even talking baout him now)

aside from the stupid (out of touch) child labor remarks, and I still trying to think how that might play out in swaying the swing voters

he is not as stupid as either Perry, Cain or some of the other candidates
he's been to the dance before, so he knows how to not mis-speak, and if he slips, he knows the best and quickest way to recover. He could be a fairly formidable candidate at this point in time.

I am not as ready to dismiss him as I might have been a few weeks back

Fox is excited. Nominee N00t will he good for ratings, as will a second Obama term.

The only thing that will hurt will be if the economy continues to improve -- how to spin the downside of that?

Come on, man. Nowhere in my post did I say or imply that. I was simply saying that Obama is an intelligent man, and a good debater, and other than Newt, I'm not sure any of the other GOP'ers could hang with him.
