Last time I voted for Obama as I knew McCain was just a RINO. Obama promised bipartisanship, lower debt, and open government. He delivered the exact opposite of what he promised.

Today, I'm not a fan of any Republican or Democrat candidate, but can't bring myself to vote for Obama under any circumstance.

Even Ron Paul, who is a nut imo, would be superior to Obama at this point.

If anything we need some financial sanity in government. Compared to the current crop, I'd vote for Hillary in the blink of an eye.

Far left progressives are not the only ones who think that the current crop of Republican nominees are out on the edges. http://www.redstate.com/cargosquid/2011/12/16/all-of-the-candidates-suck-pick-one/

All of 'em are hooked up to the old fossil fuels standard. All of 'em are anxious to downsize government but perfectly willing (at least on the stump) to meddle with the reproductive choices of women. All of 'em are against "entitlements".

And maybe those stances appeal to the "base" but convincing the "soft" center (there's an interesting piece at http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2011/12/25/america-s-soft-middle-centrists-cower-in-time-of-partisanship.html though I don't agree with most of the author's points) is going to be a different story altogether. It will be especially fascinating when they try to woo older voters, who tend to turn out faithfully, with the current conservative candidate stance that Social Security and Medicare should be whittled down, if not outright abolished (Perry is a double dipper, BTW).

If we define extreme as whatever far left progressives think is normal, then yes, many running for the Republican nomination may be extreme from that perspective.

From the perspective of average Americans, maybe Ron Paul is extreme, the rest are mainstream in my opinion.

All the other candidates are more than a little extreme. The voters of this nation, though the bases don't realize it, are looking for a person with the ability to think, compromise and lead us all.

Obama, for all the screeches about "socialism" is a moderate. Romney is one too though he's so polished and glib that I sometimes wonder who the "real" Mitt is.

All the others? Weird, wild, arrogant, and in some cases, heart-stoppingly stupid.

Perry like all his Republican counterparts, or Democrat opponents Obama, Clinton and any professional politician I left out, save possibly Ron Paul, will say whatever they think will get them elected.

It's looking like a race between Obama and Romney. Which is like a race between identical twins in terms of their belief systems.

This cycle it appears CNN, MSNBC and Fox News all want Romney to run against Obama to assure we get the same President no matter who wins.

What about the part "if it threatens a womans life?" How is that valuing life or women? Really, that's the one that always gets me. It shows a total lack of value for living, breathing women. I always think "way to show respect for women," we have no value to people who believe our lives are worthless.

So now that makes Perry, Santorum (unless it's his wife), Bachmann, and Gingrich (am I missing anyone?) who think that abortion should not be available under any circumstances and that women/girls should bear children in the cases of incest and/or rape.
