How is it that, when it comes to cutting a deal to keep America from losing its credit rating and going into default, conservatives refused to compromise because of the value they place on their principles. Yet, when it comes to getting President Obama out of office, the same conservatives compromise every principle they believe in and fall in line behind a milquetoast moderate like Romney?

Because Republicans lack the courage of their rhetoric. But at least they know right from wrong. Put enough of them in power, and watch their courage grow!

Larue--I hardly know where to begin. Here goes:

1. Conservatives won't compromise with socialists to further degrade our constitutional system--that answers your "credit rating" issue. Conservatives know that socialists do NOT have the correct answer and are intractable--ergo, NO compromise with Obama as he screwed up our credit rating.

2. World history is full of examples where disparate peoples have banded together to defeat a common enemy--WW2 is a prime example. So, when "non-liberals" band together to defeat B.H. Obama, it is nothing but an extension of historical norms. It matters not whether they be "conservative" or "RINO" or "libertarian"--they are all against Obama, and that's what matters at the moment.

Because we are united on the principle that Socialism does not work. That is an historical fact.

'Tis better to fall in line with a moderate than to be run over by the bus with an extreme Marxist.

I would consider Barry if his opponent was Satan.

In the final jobs report prior to the election, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has announced that unemployment crept up in October to 7.9 percent, as 170,000 nonfarm payroll jobs were added.   The broader "U-6" unemployment statistic is 14.6 percent (up a hair from 14.5 six months ago). August and September's numbers were both revised upward, which is a positive sign.  As Jim Pethokoukis notes, average monthly job growth in 2012 has been nearly identical to the sub-par numbers of 2011, and hourly wages remain stagnant at best.  The "worst recovery since the Great Depression" continues....
