    General Politics Thread

    It is self evident that current Democratic president, President Obama, will run on the Democratic ticket, but the Republican nomination is still up for grabs. The purpose of this thread will be to track the nomination process and then transition into election coverage. I know politics can be hot and controversial, but please respect other peoples opinions.


    I personally would like to see Mitch Daniels of Indiana run. According to Op-Ed Columnist for the New York Times, David Brooks
    Since 2004, the 49 other states in the nation increased their debt levels by an average of 40 percent. Indiana has paid down its debt by 40 percent. Indiana received its first Triple-A bond rating in 2008, and now it is one of only nine states to have the highest rating from all three rating agencies.

    At the same time, the business climate has improved significantly. Infrastructure spending is at record levels. The state has added jobs at twice the national average. For the first time in four decades, more people are moving in than moving out.
    In a time of bloating budgets and irresponsible governing, Mitch Daniels led Indiana to prosperity. Mitch is reluctant about running and it appears he will need much coaxing to do the job. Reminds me almost of Eisenhower, who is often cited as one who was reluctant to take the job, but did it for the underlying need for him to do so.

    Trump would be an interesting choice for the Rep. ticket.

    Ron Paul is the only logical choice. Actually, he is the only one worthy of being voted for. Everyone else isn't worth my time.

    The Pauls are certainly interesting. I respect the fact that when they talk about cutting spending... they don't leave anything off the table (ie military and entitlements)

    However I think they go too far. Too little regulation is just at dangerous as too much.
    I think they subscribe to the fantasy world where corporations will regulate themselves- they won't.
    And I think they don't give government regulations due credit for the standard of living (etc) we enjoy today.

    On a more fun side:

    Oh please let Palin and Bachmann run!!!!
    Newts already good to go... we just need the other stooges to throw their hats in the rink.

    Trump is a joke.

    Romney... the BYU basketball controversy has reignited the country's suspicion of mormons... oh... and Romneycare laid the framework for Obamacare, and don't think his primary opponents or the tea party will let that slide

    And Obama is doing fine. His approval rating is at or above where Bush Jr was (even after squandering the rally around the flag 9/11 event).

    And Kerry (and many others) have already proven that you can't win just by being the other guy.

    I am stunned that some people appear to love their Playstation(1,2,3) or Xbox(360) more than I love the Denver Broncos.
    Trust me, it's sad

    Ron Paul is an interesting candidate. He has no problem being straight forward and honest on where he stands, which is unlike most of the politicians in DC. I don't agree with him on everything, but I do on a LOT of things. If the election were today, he would probably get my vote, but I guess it would depend on who else is running etc. He is high on my list though.

    not when he start doing the "Yes we can" speech. For most people reality goes right out the window when they hear that crap. That is where Cocaine Sheen comes in, he gonna slap those people back to the real world. The world of Charlie Sheen.
