Is There a (viable) Republican Candidate?

From what I’ve read about Mitt Romney, I think he’s a good person (more on that in an upcoming post) but is he a viable candidate? This will be a tough race for the GOP.

    This is an interesting cartoon. Is there really a meaningful contingent of GOPers who want “anyone but Romney”? I have not heard much other than Romney’s not the typical, modern GOPer.

    If Romney wins the nomination, I will look forward to the debates between him and Obama. Couple of brainiacs. I am placing my bets on Romney in a debate with Obama, though. His business experience; his managing of the health care situation in Massachusetts; his Warren Buffett like frugal ways (personally, with family, and with his businesses); his never-graduated-from-college-but-became-SecHUD-for-Nixon’s-first-term father; impress me.

    Ron Paul is the BEST and ONLY hope this country has going forward. In the protection of our liberties, and restoring the idea of America as the best country in the world. Think for a second why the MSM and the big corporations would rather back Romney than Paul. They know that Paul would actually bring about real change, not superficial cuts and ideas to appease the base.

    Here is a recent town hall meeting he held in New Hampshire. It provides a great glimpse into all his views and includes a lot of Q/A.

    I can’t say how prevalent it is, but on last night’s Washington Week, Gwen Ifil used the expression “the anyone-but-Romney” rubric. I’m interested to see who the final two GOP candidates are.

    You think? the polls (specifically Rasmussen) show “Republican Primary voters see Mitt Romney as the strongest potential opponent for President Obama. Ron Paul is seen as the weakest.” Ron Paul’s platform includes the elimination of the individual income tax along with the federal reserve. Good or bad, there is no chance of these things happening. Even a flat tax that was revenue neutral would never get through congress. Paul’s chances of making it to final two is close to zero, sorry.
