I did love Romney's line about trickle up poverty.

You know what, Earl? I could not possibly care less if our candidate is male or female, white, black, brown or purple. I completely despise identity politics. I want the best candidate I can get and I don't care whether they're a he, she or it.

So, Sloandog...what part of that argument isn't true? If Romney had won, do you honestly think we wouldn't be better off now?

Roberty-He talked constantly about getting rid of Obamacare. What people might have noticed if they hadn't already decided they didn't like him was his advisors-he had Judge Bork on his team to help with judicial appointments if he'd won. Do you think Bork would have picked Kagan and Sotemayor? The idea that Romney wouldn't have been light years better than we have now is completely insane.

Cruz was not unknown. He really gained name recognition when he took the Railroad Killer case to the SCOTUS (Mexican national got the death penalty and Mexico tried to stop us) and won (as the Texas Attorney General). Besides, Cruz wasn't running against an incumbent. He was running for Hutchinson's seat and she was retiring.

agreed....A lot of people seem to have the impression that Cruz is in it for himself. I don't think that's true, but if people like Dr. Sowell keep saying it, the perception will only spread. I wish those on our side would be a little more politic with their criticisms.

Earl-Actually, people should vote because it's the right thing to do. And they should educate themselves about their vote because it's the right thing to do. Voters on their side may not care about that, but those on our side should be mature enough to know that.

SD#-And what's really funny about that is that Romney cares a lot more about other people than Obama does.

Barry won because his voters showed up and ours didn't. I don't put Romney in the same class as McCain. Romney's biggest weakness is that he's not good at blowing his own horn-McCain has no problem with that. Our problem is that too many of our voters don't look at the big picture. They're the ones that say that there was no difference between Romney and Obama. If Romney had won he wouldn't have put Sotemayor or Kagan on the SCOTUS. There's one big difference.

I have some sympathy for the kids. I know someone who came here illegally nearly 20 years ago. He lives under a name he wasn't born with and has fake papers. He owns and operates the best Tex Mex restaurant in the area. He's very successful, owns a home, coaches Little League, sponsors teams, pays taxes, etc. He's the model citizen. Of course, he's not really a citizen. His 3 kids were all under the age of 5 when he got here. They don't remember ever living anywhere else. They don't speak Spanish (one of them nearly failed it in High School) and they've never thought of themselves as anything but Americans. The oldest is married to a gringo and has a new baby. The parents made the decision to bring their kids here, but the kids had no say in it. They certainly don't think of themselves as Mexicans. They're really the kind of immigrants we would want to come in, but they did it the wrong way. One things Americans don't understand when we say "they didn't show respect for our laws" is that they came from a culture of government corruption. They don't see it as disrespect. They've never known anything but a government that "no" means you didn't bribe someone enough.

Dear Dr. Sowell, I nearly always agree with you and I agree with what you've written here, but where were you when John McCain was publicly name calling against Rand Paul and Ted Cruz? The Tea Party wing and the Establishment wing BOTH need to learn to keep their differences behind closed doors like the Dims do. They need to concentrate on their many areas of agreement instead of fixating on their areas of disagreement. And John McCain needs to shut up.
