Most are consciously naive and give left leaning cheaters a pass as long as they support their pet issues-which speaks volumes.

That's bs, sorry. Cheating is cheating and I look at it all the same way. I haven't seen anyone here look the other way about "left leaning" cheating. That's your spin, so sorry-it doesn't "speak volumes" about anyone here.

I hate to break it to you but it's prevalent everywhere and among everyone. It's even possible that Mitt could cheat He's just a human, not a God.

i believe the difference between John Kerry and Mitt Romney is that one is an incredibly boring, terrible democratic candidate, and one is an incredibly boring, terrible republican candidate.

Santorum Loses Michigan Catholic Vote to Romney

In exit polls released by CBS news the Catholic Candidate Rick Santorum won just 37% of the Catholic vote, while the Mormon Candidate picked up 44% of the Catholic vote.

Rick Santorum had embraced the indignant letter from the Catholic Bishops which rebuked the current administration for their decision concerning contraception coverage for some Catholic institutions. A religious freedom battle in very short order would become a women's rights battle. The result was a toxic policy situation for Republican leaders and Rick Santorum appeared to want to declare himself a five star general in the war on women. This could explain why Romney was more popular with women Michigan voters.

There are serious doubts that Catholic voters will be persuaded one way or the other at the polls by the opinions of the Bishops. A candidate simply agreeing with the Catholic Bishops does not mean that candidate will receive more Catholic votes.

More importantly this week, Santorum has infamously come out publicly to state that comments made by President John Kennedy concerning the separation of church and state, made him want to puke.

With this one statement the increasingly controversial candidate Santorum threatened the hallowed memory of the one Catholic President, John Kennedy. Not a good political move if you hope to win a majority of a very important voting bloc of which Santorum is a member of in "good" standing.

Diamond Dave, it's not about Romney being able to sell a hypothetical tax increase to the public. The public, because of their ignorance, doesn't even have a say on that issue. That's the whole point. The Republicans, on this issue (using it only because it is the best and most illustrative example) do not answer to their constiutents. They answer to the Big Money lobby fueling their re-election campaigns. That is 100% truth.

Because of this, Grover Norquist doesn't care if the public favors tax increases.
He'll destroy Republicans that violate the pledge. He's done it before.

So that Lobby has the Congressional Republicans in their back pocket.
Romney would have no choice in the matter.

This is precisely why Obama didn't "change" anything.
It was always impossible. I said this during the entire 2008 election season.

I think we know the real reason that Mitt won't light his hair on fire

We'll see how long that lasts. If he would actually stick to that I'd applaud him for it. His campaign might go down in flames for it.

Huffington Post

Rush Limbaugh laid into GOP candidate Mitt Romney on Tuesday after the candidate said he would not say "incendiary comments" about President Barack Obama for the sole purpose of inciting the conservative base.

During a press conference before the Michigan primary contest, Romney said, "It's very easy to excite the [conservative] base with incendiary comments. We've seen throughout the campaign that if you're willing to say really outrageous things that are accusative and attacking President Obama, that you're going to jump up in the polls. I'm not willing to light my hair on fire to try and get support. I am who I am."

Limbaugh seemed surprised by Romney's reaction. "So Romney's not willing to say incendiary things about Obama to incite the base," he repeated. "What does this tell you that Romney thinks of the base? That it takes incendiary comments to turn you on? That all you want is somebody beating up on Obama...or set their hair on fire to get attention..and that's all you care about," Limbaugh said to his listeners.

He later criticized Romney for making this position clear so early in the 2012 election. Speaking of 2008 Republican candidate Sen. John McCain, Limbaugh said, "At least McCain waited till the general campaign to make it clear that anybody criticizing Obama would be fired. Here it's happening in the primary." He then imitated Romney's position on the subject and said, "I'm not going to make any incendiary comments to attract the base. I have extensive experience in the private sector."

Limbaugh also took issue with what he referred to as Obama and the press' willingness to criticize the conservative base. "Obama can say whatever he wants about us and does, and the media can. And we're not talking about incendiary. We're talking about truth," Limbaugh said.

That's a great headline in the making.

Rush Fires Up Base with Incendiary Comments to Prove They Don't Need to Be Fired Up by Incendiary Comments

Rush is counting on the base not being able to figure out who is really patronizing them.

Good to see Rush Limbaugh's continuing to be his usual annoying self .

The thing with Santorum losing Catholic cred, supposedly, because of his comments on Kennedy, that amuses me. I don't know what's sadder: the politicians puffing up some particular part of themselves (religion, race, gender, background, etc.) simply to try and get votes from the people whom they share that quality with, or the voters who do fall for such a pathetic ploy.

Limbaugh calls college student slut and prostitute

Quote:
"Can you imagine if you were her parents how proud... you would be?" he said on his radio show on Wednesday. "Your daughter... testifies she's having so much sex she can't afford her own birth control pills and she wants President Obama to provide them, or the Pope."

Limbaugh was only getting started:

"What does it say about the college co-ed Susan (sic) Fluke who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex -- what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex."

Someone who travels to known tourist sex havens with non-prescription Viagra should know a thing or two about being a whore.
