    :that:

    Simple direct answers to simple direct questions is what will give RP credibility, whether one agrees with them or not...
    If he doesn't know or isn't sure; "I don't know" or "I'm not sure" works much better with most folks than standing up at the podium whistling through his butt...


    So if the OP has a direct line to RP or is in his employ...please pass that little pearl of wisdom along...

    If he's trying to pass himself off as something new and different...ready to lead the nation...he's failing miserably...

    I also wonder, on the off chance that he did win the Presidency, how he would, as an Independent, fare with a largely Republican/Democrat Congress....

    Face it, Mitt Romney will be the nominee. This is good. Romney can beat Obama. Paul has already peaked - like Gingrich, Cain, Perry, and Bachmann did before him. Santorum is temporarily peaking - though he could win in South Carolina. If Santorum gets the nomination, though, the GOP will lose it's great shot at the presidency.
    2012 is the Republican's election to lose. The Republican should easily win in theory due to the economy. However, if a wingbat like Santorum gets the nomination, Obama will win. Santorum, and much of the 2012 GOP field, is seen as a racist, homophobic joke.

    Romney cant beat Obama. Name a moderate Rep that has ever been elected as president?

    George HW Bush and GW Bush, both "compassionate conservatives," were moderate in my opinion. Both were big-government expanding Neocons. Both Gingrich and Santorum fit into that description as well.

    George W. Bush (sort of), George H.W. Bush, Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Romney stands a far better chance than Santorum.

    GW did not run as a moderate and GHW ran on the coattails of the Conservative Reagan, he didnt run as a moderate. Romney cant win, the evangelicals will stay home on him because he is a morman... that was the ~25% that Santorum got in Iowa. Romney's "Marriage Amendment" will win him NOTHING... Romney cant win the democrats and left of center indies that might abandon Obama with the right candidate but not with that kind of kookiness. Why do you think the GOP is desperately trying to get a conservative vetted to knock Romney out.

    But then you have Rick "Let's reinvade Iraq" Perry and Santorum - another "Marriage Amendment" kook.

    Face it, the GOP has no chance without Paul at the top of the ticket.
