Republicans criticize the other side for swallowing everything their candidates tell them, and this is no different. I watched the interview, and Ann was a used car salesman trying to sell everyone a big helping of Obama. Ann should stick to writing about how evil liberals are since she clearly has nothing else relevant to say.

To many, politics is nothing more than a team sport akin to their high school and college games. Once the teams are fielded it's just a matter of being the best cheerleader for your team. We have a gang of cheerleaders here at TH and you will read their wrath if you rain on their groupie parade.

Groupies?? You are a fool if you believe that. The thing that unites us is not some groupie love for Romney, but a visceral combination of disgust for what Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Frank and Dodd have done to our country and terror that they will get a chance to continue the destruction and take us to the point of no return. We may be there already.

Romney is not what this country needs. He doesn't have the will or the fortitude to do what's truly necessary. But unfortunately he is the only chance we have to even SLOW DOWN the bleeding.

What we need is a slash and burn artist in the mold of Governor Scott Walker. But we can't have that right now. So we either elect Romney or watch this once-great nation gasp out its last breath.

What makes you think we can have that kind of candidate later FlamingCapitalist (love the handle)? We had candidates with every bit as dedicated as Scott Walker would be this election. Republicans, as a whole, just don't like those people. They want compromisers. Not just now, but next election too.

Ok Flame. Here's your pompoms. Wear em out.

Good question Fuzzy. It might not be possible at all to get that kind of guy in office but there IS potential. If Romney frees the American markets up enough to do what they need to do, we will return to prosperity and solid employment. People will come off welfare and food stamps,and get some pride back in their lives. Some of the current sheep will open their eyes and realize that the American way really is the best way, that government is NOT the answer. They're not all stupid, many are simply ignorant.

If Romney can START turning that supertanker, it's possible the majority of the electorate can be convinced to take the next logical step. It may be a long shot but it's our only shot.

Rome wasn't built in a day. Those who refuse to take what they can get unless they get everything they want RIGHT NOW, end up getting nothing. Good luck with that.

There is no candidate that gives anyone 100% of what they want. All I ask is someone who doesn't intend to break the law (our Constitution) for 4 years or longer.

Too much to ask?

The two wings of our one-party system go to great lengths to make it look like there are gigantic, earthshaking differences between those two wings. There aren't.

Stossel's first few examples demonstrate this truth. Obama will not cut the useless and unconstitutional Department of (re)Education; neither will Romney. Obama will not fire any federal workers; neither will Romney.

I've already voted for Gary Johnson, who is not the perfect libertarian candidate, but is far superior to either O or R.

Yeah, Johnson isn't perfect, but he's earned my vote and the other two haven't even come close.

Your theory that J is better than either O or R will never be tested in any concrete way because of our 2-party monopoly system. While I really do respect your right to vote wrong Paulus,... obviously your vote will not decide who will be the next president.

Reality always trumps theories. I prefer to use my vote to help push Barhama out and pull Romney in since any other ending will be an ending of catastrophic proportions.

Gary, you'd think this would be is not judging by the "feel-good-do-harm-to-our-country-by-voting-for-Johnson libertarians....
Mitt Romney tells people he won't fire federal workers or cut education spending. He says he'll spend more on the military. He sounds like a big-government guy. Or is he just pandering for votes?

Ann Coulter came on my TV show to defend Romney.

"What you call pandering is called getting elected," Coulter said.

Romney says he'll repeal Obamacare. Great! But he wants to keep popular parts: coverage for pre-existing conditions and keeping grown kids on their parents' policies until age 26. Those mandates are popular. But that's not insurance. That's welfare.

"If we do not repeal Obamacare in the next...
