Jason: I guess I'm basing my judgment of him on the entirety of his history...and I think most of it is "good" rather than "bad." With respect to the Amnesty question, I have been out of the loop for awhile and am not aware of his position (or flip-flops). Overall, I think your judgment of him might be too harsh, but I respect your opinion, anyway, and acknowledge your reason for it.

Agree with you, Michael.

Kirk Mac: I think you summed up my feelings quite nicely. And I understand the angst lots of TH posters have about being manipulated into supporting someone less conservative than they would prefer. I'm with you - the more conservative the better. Just want to keep our internal discussions [...shall I say as anti-Leftists?] as civil as possible, because I don't want to give our opponents any ammo.

Respectfully, Nathan, I think there could be another explanation. Some of us believe we have something to offer to our nation and are willing to put ourselves in harms way, so to speak, to do so. I believe Gov. Romney considers himself to be a patriot. You may not agree with him, but that's what I think he believes about himself, i.e. he would run if he thought it was good for the country.

Yes, Earl; see my comment to Sloandog, above.

Morning, Sloandog. Good question. First, I'm just pointing out that Romney would be better in my book than any insane, anti-American, anti-Constitutional lying hypocrite the Democrats could nominate. Second, it's a free country; if this man wants to run for the Presidency, he can. BTW, I am neither anti-Romney or a Romney supporter. My first choice, at this point, would be Scott Walker.

Ok, I'll be odd man out, here. When I think about two names - President Romney or President Obama - I have no doubt which I would choose.
On a related issue, I was quite outraged by New York City's mayor claiming this week (in response to the grand jury not indicting the officer) that "black and brown lives matter, too." Really, Mayor De Barfio? Then why do you support an "industry" that kills more black and brown people than are born in your city? You...and all your left wing ilk...are self-righteous hypocrites.
Thanks to all those above and to any who continue to add kind words below for the heartfelt concern for my son. You are all in our prayers, too.
To H8, WJF, and many other TH friends: Apologies for this off topic comment about my son Jason Matthew who was discharged from a VA Hospital (a couple of weeks ago) with a WBC count of 20,000, a diagnosis of pancreatitis, and the claim that he was "stable" and able to take care of himself. Three days later, he was admitted to a University Hospital in critical condition, essentially no blood pressure, and in a coma. Thousands of people have been praying for him, and he was been getting excellent medical care. Yesterday, the ventilator was removed. He no longer requires continuous dialysis, but may need it intermittently. He is not in a coma and can respond with nods, eyeblinks, and a few words. Jason has PTSD, TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), major hearing loss (from artillery fire), crippling arthritis of the knees and lower spine, as well as a few other conditions. Our wounded sons and daughters must not be forgotten; we give thanks that Jason is improving; and we thank all of you who have prayed for him.
Again, my apologies for derailing the thread and informing H8 about my son; but I count so many of you my TH friends I wanted to let you know about what has happened to him and ask for your prayers for his recovery. We are on our way to the hospital, now, for today's visit.
