@izzythepush,
Considering the state of your conservative party, I don't think it would be a good idea for Republicans to go looking in the UK for candidates, even American born ones.

A lot depends upon what happens in the next three years.

If we haven't suffered a major economic fall off, I expect that the GOP will take a page from the Democrat Playbook and nominate someone who is relatively young, a bit flashy (to the extent Republicans can be) and who has a direct connection to a "minority" voting bloc. (I used the quotes since its factually inaccurate to describe women as a minority).

I doubt any of them will cause me to be enthralled.

@Finn dAbuzz,
Quit your fear mongering Finn. The fact of the matter is, the third quarter economic report is going to show huge improvements - some predict close to or over 3%. All under Obama! You guys don't know you're better off today than you were in 2008; too blinded by your own party politics.

The only reason the market had bad two days is based on people's fear about the fiscal cliff - that the republicans won't negotiate. Yea, the GOP is holding the fiscal cliff hostage by not negotiating what the American people want; higher taxes for the rich.

The GOP is a lost cause; they'll destroy this country for their politics.

@maxdancona,
Paul Ryan is an extremely bright, personable man.Problem is, he is much too far to the right. The only way that the Republicans would have a chance in 2016 is to run a person who can pull in the moderates, independents, and undecideds. Sorry Paul, that is just not you.

Nope. Romney was clearly the better man for the job.

@Phoenix32890,
It might help if they didn't feel compelled to pick a far right-wing loon for VP.

I start every election cycle firmly planted on the fence. I live in an open primary state which allows me to pick the party I want to vote for during the primaries. I mostly vote in the Republican primary in order to a) find a moderate to support or b) vote against a loon. Then, at the end of the primary season the Rs choose someone who pushes me toward the D or L side of the fence. That someone chooses a loon for a running mate and I end up firmly in the D or L camp. Loon, as I use it, can be defined as a theocrat, or in the case of Paul Ryan, someone who wants to throw the next generations under the bus to pay for the sins of the fathers. I'd vote for a socialist before I'd support someone who thinks our current seniors and adults don't need to carry the burden of their actions. Our children and grandchildren never voted for anyone who created our problems. We did.

@H2O MAN,
Romney WAS better, but he acted like an idiot. If you want people to vote for you, it is not "politically correct" (you should pardon the expression) to antagonize 47% of the electorate.

Totally agree! Paul is too far to the right; he won't win any national election.

Extremism is passe.

I know the word "Communist" has become interchangeable with "Fascist". To me it's as accurate as saying Hitler was a Christian. I don't think Marxist communism could ever be realistic, but I find it sad that the word has come to mean the very thing Marx was rallying against. Dictators are very good at cloaking their evil in the guise of good intentions - and it gives the world a reason to ignore them.
My understading of communism is un-limited collectivist authoritarianism; no right of privacy,
all rights belonging to the collective, administered thru its "dictatorship of the proletariat."
Individualsm is its hated enemy. Commies & Nazis abhor personal freedom.

It's now the US Conservatives who belong in that group.

They hate freedoms for women, Hispanics, gays and lesbians, and the 47%.

Tell your accountant not
to be TOO accurate. Tell your grandchild NOT
to do too well in school; neither
of them shud be deemed to be extreme.

Tell them that is "passe."
