The GOP Line Up

Well, watching the debate this week sure was a painful experience.

I just can't get over Romney. Every time he has media coverage, he reinvents himself into somebody else. A lot of us here in Massachusetts ask where the prolife politician with a jobs plan and a great healthcare program when he was Governor. All we ever saw was a prochoicer, high unemployment and the healthcare plan he invented that is bankrupting the Commonwealth.

And how about the nastygrams flying between Romney, Perry and Santorum? Evidently, being likable isn't an attribute they think is important. I thought Rick's performance was abysmal. He was downright mean. Not a pretty sight.

Ron Paul, God Bless him...but what an odd duck.

I'll tell you something, Newt is starting to look like the best in the bunch. At least the man is affable and kind and he's with us on life.

Cain is likable, he's got some great answers but I can't figure out if it's inexperience that is making him shoot his mouth off or if he's full of crap. If he didn't have the electric fence faux pas out there earlier this week I'd be ready to say fugghetaboutit. On the one hand, I can't imagine an authentic prolifer ever saying if the situation came in their family, abortion is a choice that's up to the mother. On the other hand, he claims his conviction on abortion are no exceptions and he'll appoint judges who will protect the child's constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness - which isn't exactly going to win him a popularity context. At this point, I think we should hold our fire but I'm not ready to jump on the bandwagon yet.

In a race you'd almost have to sabotage to lose, we've got some challenges ahead of us.

That's the truth!...never underestimate the Republicans' ability to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory.
