Good theory. 'Cause, you know, nothing says, "I'm special!" like nonsensical prejudices and blatant idiocy.

Sigh. Whatever the reason, the whole thing's just stupid as hell.

As for Santorum...

Quote:
Then he launched into a curious tangent: "I thank God for America that our southern border is Mexico," he said. "And it's not Libya, and it's not Tunisia, and it's not Iran. Mexican culture and American culture is Western civilization, and the basic values and understanding of our laws and our government are based in those Western civilization traditions. That is not the case in Europe, and you're seeing the effects of it. I have nothing at all against people in this hemisphere who want to immigrate."
...um...'kay.

Also, call me crazy, but I REALLY don't think it's a good thing for my potential president to be buying into the "end times apocalypse" hysteria. That whole belief's disturbing enough on its own, to have a possible leader of the free world follow it is chilling on so many levels.

That sect of Shia Islam believes in the second coming of a messiah, a second coming that will bring on the apocalypse. Santorum - who believes in the second coming of a messiah, a second coming that will bring on the apocalypse - finds that dangerous. Funny (and, just quietly, 'a plague on both your houses' and all that).

Also, claiming western civilisation as the product of the US and antithesis of Europe is either proving yourself to be beyond stupid, or all too clearly showing that you think your support base is that stupid. I assume with Santorum it's both.

^ I think he may have been referring to Europe's non-Western (Muslim) immigrant populations, rather than to where Western culture comes from.

Huntsman is the other party's favorite candidate.

Much like Joe Lieberman was the favorite Democrat Candidate if the GOP chose the Dem nominee.

Huntsman will never appeal to the national GOP, there are places where he could win office against the right candidate.

is this true, though? Santorum is a Catholic, and i don't think Catholics are all that into the rapture like most conservative American protestant evangelicals.

Most Christians aren't into all the rapture business. That's a very 'US evangelical' thing. But Catholics still have it all coming to a big Michael Bay finale.

A decent VP pick for Romney?
not any of the current or past GOP candidates



Romneys ok as the guy who can do a better job on the economy.
Obamas foreign policy is pretty solid.
Romney could use some more heft there, so right now, I would put David Petraeus on his short list.

really? i was raised mildly Catholic and this end-of-the-world stuff was never talked about. sure, Christ was supposed to come again and all, but i never had the impression that the CGI budget would be correspondingly huge.

were other Catholics taught about this stuff?

i would think they're all going to be after Rubio.

he'll help out with the GOP's Hispanic problem. he'll help with Florida (though he won a three-way election). he's a Tea Party guy (though the Tea Party isn't so popular any more). he's 40. (which might be a strike against him, actually, he'd be *very* young).

it seems like a no-brainer to me.

Rubio is not hispanic

Hispanics are illegal aliens stealing jobs, sucking up welfare,
that the GOP want to deport.

the GOP gets 80% of the White male vote

unless you go into certain districts in NY,

what's up with that? didn't they get the memo?

I expect it to be Rubio, but this would be a very interesting pick. He's better than Rubio in a lot of ways, actually.

There was an article on The Daily Caller a few weeks back, and it predicted Petraeus would be asked to be VP and that he would accept. If Rubio is truly not going to accept if asked (which I'm slowly starting to believe may be the case), Petraeus would be a very strong pick.

Nicaraguans came to this country fleeing the Communist Ortega

they got their Communist hating asses deported lickety-split



why do white male jews vote aginst their skin color and gender?

Cubans are pampered and privileged, they can not sneak into this country

if they get one foot on the beach, they are on the fast track to citizenship, how can that be called Hispanic, why would any real Hispanic be impressed by pandering more to the already pampered to GOP Cuban base?
F*ck Cuban-Americans they are the most privileged minority, finally an Affirmative Action the GOP can get behind, hard.
