Election Could Mirror 1980 Race

The conservative base is not fired up FOR Romney but is AGAINST Obama. This means that they will vote against Obama. Let's not forget that the Romney wing of the party was opposed to Reagan and basically was behind Anderson. So far Romney has not done or said anything to inspire conservatives to vote FOR him unlike Reagan who was the conservative champion. Hopefully Romney is bold in the debate and draws distinct differences. Economic arguments alone may not be sufficient if Romney merely comes across as tweedle dee to tweedle dum. Finally ask yourself who was more likeable - Carter or Reagan - and then you may understand Romney's problem.
The selective comments of our Mormon friends to prove that they are indeed Christians are telling. This same approach could be used by Muslims to show that they are Christians. Ultimately the question for a Christian is the person of Jesus Christ. Orthodox Christians reject the idea that Jesus and Satan were brothers, that Jesus is not unique (i.e. the Mormon idea that men will become gods), the requirement that something other than Jesus Christ is essential for salvation (e.g. a Mormon woman must be called by a Morman man after death in order to live eternally), etc. Mormons may call themselves Christians but that does not mean that Christians must accept that designation.
Allowing the lawbreaker to obtain legal status in the end (a) cheapens legal status for both the citizen and the legal immigrant and (b) encourages more lawbreaking not just by other illegals but by the population in general. The author fails to consider this cost as well as the huge additional costs incurred by law enforcement and social agencies to support the large number of illegal immigrants in our society. A fundamental presuppposition in that we are a country of laws and lawabiders. When this is lost, the character of our country is changed.
Elections are won based on turnout. A non-ideological campaign by the Republicans will only diminish their turnout. This occurs at a time when the mushy middle will in all liklihood stay at home unwilling to vote for the incompetent Obama but also unwilling to vote for someone who stands for nothing. Romney should be copying Reagan but he is not because his natural inclination (just like his father) is to oppose Reagan and the core principles that Reagan stood for. The millions of socially conservative democrats are not yet inspired by Romney and he is doing little to convince them with his pragmatic campaign. We can only pray that Obama is unable to motivate his base but that is by no means certain.
in other words Romney will not do anything substantial to advance the prolife cause - this is exactly what we all think. Unfortunately it applies to virtually all core principles of the Republican Party.
When these candidates win we all lose because the conservative message is lost and liberal policies prevail.

Akin's Circular Firing Squad

Can anyone believe that the Republican Party will stand up for them when they fail to stand for their own candidates and principles? It is not AKin who will defeat the Republicans. They will defeat themselves by overreacting and running from their own supporters and platform. The personal attacks on Akin reveal the weakness of the Party and the Romney/Ryan ticket.

Already the Republican party has lost. The Akin matter has showed how desperate and unprincipled the Republican Party and Romney are. How easily they abandon their supporters and their platform. Will anyone seriously believe anything they say? Read my lips........

A Grand Old Party in Panic

Look how the Republicans treat one of their core members. Anyone who thinks Romney (yes and as much as I like him Ryan as well) will do anything but govern pragmatically (i.e. in lock step with the media and what they deem to be popular opinion) is dreaming. Instead of using this as an opportunity to take a principled stand for life, Romney/Ryan ran away from their party's platform and their supposed principles announcing support for abortion in the case of rape and ridiculing their prolife supporters. Can you seriously believe they will stand strong for any other principle when elected? Imagine 28 years to balance the budget -- more government centralization as they tell us about the tough decisions they are making for our own good.

Akin's Idiocy is Infectious

Jonah why don't you save some of your vitriole for Sandra Fluke and Obama. Your "theatrical outrage" is to say the least pathetic - "idiocy", "asinity", "buffoonery", "jackassery", etc. Would you say this to Mr. Akin's face or to anyone's face for that matter. You have done nothing to add to the debate but have simply diminished yourself with this article.

Note how the RINOS and democrats are using this to tar and feather all prolifers. Regrettably the conservatives are joining the bandwagon. Did Rush resign after the Sandra Fluke comments or is he still on the air?
