take all the heartache out of your next presidential vote.
I ended up with Romney as mine.
I came up with Romney too. The last one I took (a different one) came up with John McCain.
I was glad to see Hillary pick up a victory.....just to put a speed bump on Obama's rolling ball of momentum.
Kucinich was my top dem with 53, Giuliani was my top repub with 35, so really not that much spread between them. Huckabee came in dead last with a 5.
I am not sure if I agree with my poll.
It was Rudy for me
It gave me Fred Thompson with a 56 and at the bottom was Kucinich with a 2.
Fred Thompson was my top pick as well. Mike Gavel was my lowest rated candidate, but I've never heard of the guy.
Ditto! Fred Thompson first and Mike Gavel (whoever he may be) last. The next to last candidate was a tie between Chris Dodd and Dennis Kucinich.
I must be a Neocon, as some of you like to put it. I consider myself a conservative independent voter. Duncan Hunter-61, Thompson-58. Romney and Huckaby, who I like, tied at 53. On the low end, Obama got 20, Hillary-13. Edwards scored a 10, and Dodd and Kucinich tied for last place with a 6.
Once again, I am not particularly happy with our choices for this election. My finally choice will be who I think will do the least damage.
Keep in mind that these ratings are on a scale of 1-100, so while Duncan Hunter might have scored highest, a 61 is still a failing grade. Noone scored higher than 53 with me, so suffice it to say that I'm not paticularly happy either. The least damaging choice is likely the decision that we will all be reduced to.
Can you imaging waking up to that women every morning. Hopefully her spouse or mate doesn't keep a gun in the house. Anyhow, she can keep her bogus endorsement on the red side of the fence.
Many of these AM Talk Radio and Fox News political Republican pundits may hoop and holler at the so called "masses",but it seems like the mainstream Republican base is just not buying into to their trash talking of McCain. Maybe their is some hope for Tradional Republicanism in this country
Unfortunatly the current choice of candidates has a lot of traditional republicans making a tough choice on who to vote for. McCain is far from a traditional republican, in fact he is the most liberal candidate running for President on the republican side. Mitt Romney is really the best choice given the current field, but a republican presidential candidate needs the support of evangelical Christians to have a chance, and those people are foolishly voting for Huckabee. Huckabee has no chance, but with his preacher background he is effectively taking votes that would to go Romney allowing McCain to win key primaries.
Personally, my biggest beef with McCain is his stance on immigration. Last summer he and Ted Kennedy wrote up that horrible immigration bill that really was just an amnesty bill. They drew it up in the dark of night, and tried to force it through congress without letting any of the other congressmen/women have a chance to read it. They wanted no discussion, no debate, and no chance for their colleagues or constituents to see what they were trying to do. When McCain was called out on it he told a fellow Senator "F*** You!!" He knew what he was doing was not acceptable by the American people, but he still tried to get it to the President's desk who had already promised to sign it. The switchboards on congressional hill lit up for days, having to shut down at times due to the extreme volume of people calling in telling their representatives to vote no. The bill was ultimately defeated, and McCain says he has changed his tune, but I have a hard time buying it. Like all politicians he will only change his tune until he is elected. Then, I fear he will be back to his old games again.
I suppose you'd rather imagine waking up to this women.
Not with McCain, he is far from being a traditional Republican! Ron Paul is much more of a traditional Republican as far as holding to the constitution and less government.
Yes, John McCain was an American hero during the Vietnam war. So was former Congressman Duke Cunningham, now in prison. Not to take anything away from McCain but military service alone does not qualify you to run this Country.
Sadly, liberal media darling John McCain craves the presidency so much that he's been losing his soul. McCain's campaign seems to be based on the subliminal (and silly) premise that because he was shot down and imprisoned in Hanoi for about five years and survived two suicide attempts, voters should ignore liberalism, evidenced by McCain-Feingold, McCain-Kennedy, McCain-Leiberman and McCain-Kennedy-Edwards and his opposition to the Bush tax cuts.
McCain's been shamelessly lying about Mitt's position on the war in Iraq as well as trying to take the credit for military operation's there being back on track that belongs to President Bush, General Petraeus and the Americans serving in Iraq.
McCain is more like a traditional Liberal!
What woman ???? I don't see a woman !!
I see a whoa-man !!
Easy way for all --I mean ALL --working Americans to chose next President: On IRS website compare 1999 tax rates to 2007 tax rates ---look at wage levels and tax % ----everyone not just the rich get hammered under the Democrats ---if you think Goverment should have more of your money --vote Dem.
Romney with a score of 53. I'm not sure he'll get the nomination though and the thought of a McCain/Clinton or Obama ticket scares me. There are too many intitlement minded people in the country now and sadly they're on both side of the political fence. Yes, most of them are on the Democratic side but the few on the Reublican side will surely vote for a candidate such as McCain since he is so close to being a Democrat. As much as I don't like him I'd definately vote for him over Clinton or Obama (especially Obama) any day. Man I sure hope Romney can catch McCain.
I would prefer Romney over McCain. Huckabee needs to get out of the race.
I believe what you meant was, www.fairtax.org
I think sometime this evening we'll have a very good idea who the 2 nominees for the 2 parties will be. Then the discussion will get real interesting IMO and on the republican side, I think a lot of you will have some real soul searching to do when you start looking hard at your nominee. Not that there is anything on the democrat side for you but whoever that is won't be much better than what you have to pick from. Even if it's Hillary!
No, I meant what I posted --------1999 tax rates compared to 2007 tax rates ----no matter how much you earn ---you pay more to government under the Dems. Look at the irs tax tables ----no fuzzy math here -----what you see is what you paid. I know that the socialist would like the upper and middle class to pay all taxes -----but they have no sense of what is fair.
