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.

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.

I too was raised Catholic and we do not ever talk about Revelations.

So, Mitt Romney, who has staked it all on New Hampshire and parked his ass up there for the last 3 years can't even convince 4 our of 10 GOP primary voters to vote for him in a field with at least 3 sheer lunatics?

Wow.

Guess there are some smart people in NH It is a unique place-live free or die.

The last three US Presidents finished second in the NH primary. Just saying.

Wow.

If Romney is the nominee, he wins New Hampshire. That's all that matters.

And let's not forget that independents can vote in NH, and they accounted for about 40% of the vote, so it's hard to get a precise grip on who exactly the affiliated Republicans went for and in what numbers. But we do know via the exit polls that Romney won huge on issues like the economy and electability.

But isn't that a bad thing for him? I mean isn't this election supposed to be about individuals running away from Barack Obama? If that is the case, they certainly don't seem to be rushing into the arms of Romney.

I genuinely don't understand why Romney isn't winning these primaries by 20, 30 points.

Not that I blame him for seeking that option, mind you - but then I don't have any aspirations to be president.

Was Kerry's "I'm reporting for duty" a swipe at Bush? Sure, but I don't think he had to have believed the Rather report to make it.
im sure this was already discussed at length in here 8 years ago, but its worth mentioning

George W. Bush military service controversy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
In November Bush began flight training at Moody Air Force Base, Georgia. In December 1969, he began further training on the F-102 in Houston at the 147th's Combat Crew Training School, soloing in March 1970 and graduating in June, fulfilling his active-duty commitment.[1] He performed Guard duty as an F-102 pilot through April 1972, logging a total of 336 flight hours[2] and was promoted once during his service, to First Lieutenant.[3]

In November 1970, Lt. Col. Jerry B. Killian, commander of the 111th Fighter Squadron, recommended that Bush be promoted to First Lieutenant, calling him "a dynamic outstanding young officer" who stood out as "a top notch fighter interceptor pilot." He said that "Lt. Bush's skills far exceed his contemporaries," and that "he is a natural leader whom his contemporaries look to for leadership. Lt. Bush is also a good follower with outstanding disciplinary traits and an impeccable military bearing."[4]

Air National Guard members could volunteer for active duty service with the Air Force in a program called Palace Alert, which deployed F-102 pilots to Europe and Southeast Asia, including Vietnam and Thailand. According to three pilots from Bush's squadron, Bush inquired about this program but was advised by the base commander that he did not have the necessary experience (500 hours) at the time and that the F-102 would soon be retired.[1][5]
Bush was advised against volunteering for service in SEA by the base commander because he lacked the required flight hours plus his aircraft was being retired. I dont blame him for not volunteering for SEA and taking the advice of his base commander. Also i respect Kerry's service, as i do John McCain's as well.

As for my previous comment about "Kerry pandering to crazies", obviously i dont believe that every Kerry supporter or Democrat was a crazy. There were a few though.

Let me just say this much, there are crazies on both sides. The left had Michael Moore's documentary, the Bush AWOL theories and then there were 911 truthers. Not even sure what you call the truthers, obviously not republicans but im sure the democrats dont really claim them either.

The GOP has its fringe as well, the "birthers" and the wingnuts who belive Obama is a marxist, socialist, or even a muslim, etc. The other side of the crazy coin. Can we all agree that both fringe elements are nuts?

Because the right wing base is half nuts. The base, mind you, not the moderates or fence sitters. Eventually they will come around to him when they realize he is the only one who could possibly beat Obama in the general election.

can we also agree that the "right fringe" has much, much more power over the GOP than the "left fringe" has over the Democrats? and that we really can't equivocate between the two?
